    There is not a single second of new or unreleased music waiting for you inside this handsomely designed object.... His three studio albums have settled into cultural totems, albums that anyone hoping to know something about rock history buys sooner or later. Even 40-odd years later, their thumbprint remains unique, a strange and compelling mix of timeless poetic melancholy on the one hand, and cloistered, pampered schoolboy modernity on the other.

    Completists looking for some new insights to Drake's sounds will come up empty-handed with this collection. Although the music at its best approaches flawlessness, almost all of it has been widely available long before this packaging.

    While almost all of the music is five-star material, it’s hard to recommend this collection wholeheartedly when anyone paying attention long enough could have easily picked up every item in the set individually.

    The 5CD set of course includes his three now-celebrated albums.... Then there's Made to Love Magic, released in 2004, which includes out-takes and his final 1974 recordings, including the bleak Black Eyed Dog, and Family Tree, a set of home recordings he made before 1969, that was originally released in 2007. It's predictably patchy.
