    Incredibly way overpriced at $300 if you want to indulge in the BluRay version. Moderately overpriced at $200 for the DVD and simply twice what it should be for the CD only version. Neil has got some gall asking his fans to fork over this kind of cash (in this economy) for a rehashed release with very little new material. "Cough up the Bucks" as one of Neil's new songs implores us to Incredibly way overpriced at $300 if you want to indulge in the BluRay version.

  1. Not only was the wait worth it, Archives feels like it was 20 years in the making. It's an extraordinary work that redefines what an autobiography can be.
  2. An impressive package, but fans will be paying big bucks for a lot of stuff they already own.
  3. This exhaustive project is the most impressive retro-fest of recordings, photographs, video footage and digiti sed memorabilia ever assembled.
