Rolling Stone - p.773.5 stars out of 5 -- "This veteran Brit rocker knows exactly where to put notes, chords and words for maximum satiric effect -- while paying tribute to every kind of classic pop."
Spin - p.81"[Lowe has been] artistically relevant for more than four decades....[An] affectionate two-CD career summation."
Q (Magazine) - p.1164 stars out of 5 -- "[The songs] demonstrate Lowe's rare ability to maintain quality and mature with his art. Top drawer."
Mojo (Publisher) - p.1164 stars out of 5 -- "Several Nick Lowes emerge: the cut-and-paste pop collagist, the roots revivalist, the doyen of middle-aged heartbreak. In the end, though, it's all about his pure, unadulterated gift for songcraft."
Blender (Magazine) - p.654.5 stars out of 5 -- "These 49-tracks are near-perfect....Lowe tells listeners what they don't want to hear, and makes them love every minute."
Record Collector (magazine) - p.984 stars out of 5 -- "[A] jam-packed collection....It's a refreshing trawl through the hits and near-misses of the glorious catalogue, with some celebrated stop-offs at less celebrated points."
