  1. Even the most hardcore disciple is likely to get something they might have missed before. [21 Oct 2006, p.35]
  2. It fits and works together perfectly despite the fact that the songs showcase the development of a thirteen-year career.
  3. This is a lovingly crafted compilation that not only represents the raw live power of PJ Harvey but also tips a cap to John Peel and the raw power his sessions had on performers.
  4. This selection method lacks the cohesion of a proper album, but the uniformity of the raw emotion throughout offers some thrilling highpoints.
  5. She certainly turned in some of her most thrilling performances for the Peel Sessions.
  6. A vibrant living record whose nervy, protean spirit pushes it miles beyond mere alt-rock radio nostalgia.
  7. 40
    It's disappointing that only 12 tracks have been handpicked for this release. [Jan 2007, p.124]
