    The original album still sparkles, thanks to the remastering job, and the documentary is insightful (most of it came out previously as an episode of Classic Albums). But it’s the non-album material that makes the box set definitive.

    The gold standard rock double LP, Ladyland now boasts 12 solo demos, eight studio outtakes (notably the stunning Angel Caterina, alias 1983), plus a September '68 Hollywood Bowl show. [Dec 2018, p.104]

    Even if you've been to Electric Ladyland, this version is worth the price of readmission. [30 Nov 2018, p.51]

    A 50th anniversary package for vital music that no one would dispute deserves the deluxe treatment. [Music: 5 out of 5 stars Reissue packaging: 4 out of 5 stars]

    Experience Hendrix have done him proud with this reissue. Take it as his ultimate monument. [Dec 2018, p.92]

    Unprecedented in 1968 and unparalleled still, Electric Ladyland has bequeathed us no end of spoils. A fine celebration of Hendrix’s most kaleidoscopically-realised endeavour, this 50th anniversary set even restores his originally intended cover photo. Dig.

    Hendrix's genius really was for compact, tightly honed pop-rock, where his playing could court restraint, embracing a kind of flinty, tensile groove. The psychedelic drift of "Rainy Day, Dream Away" is the highlight; the extra live and demo material will keep fans happy, but adds little of note tot he story. [Dec 2018, p.42]
