    Put simply, a genius at work.

    Overall it's a big nostalgic slice of deliciously moreish hip-hop pie.

    It's a fine set, worth owning along with Endtroducing… while giving beat-friendly newcomers a very persuasive career-to-date overview.

    On the whole this is a marvellous snapshot of a supreme talent deserving of more respect than he's been afforded in recent years.

    All the songs stand as equals, and considering they were made years apart, the cohesiveness this album carries is nothing short of amazing.

    Reconstructed stands as a compelling snapshot of an artist who can't be considered a real game-changer. [Oct 2012, p.118]

    The 2CD "best of" is a strong cherry-pick of his catalogue. [Oct 2012, p.102]

    I was really disapointed of this Best Of. It does not reflect in ANY way the true talent of DJ Shadow. I bought Endtroducing... and yes, it where you should start with DJ Shadow; this best of is average. Expand
