We gave it an A

People can disagree over the best-of choices on this double CD’s first half. What, no ”Ask the Angels”? But few would dispute the unbridled vigor, spontaneity, or yearning of the set’s second CD, comprising previously unreleased live tracks, demos, and obscurities. There’s even a contemplative new cover of Prince’s ”When Doves Cry.” These rare numbers make this a retrospective to be reckoned with.
