BBC sessions are such that you catch an artist when they're still working an idea out or revisiting old favourites after a long hiatus.

For the fans that have followed faithfully from whenever, there is much to listen to. The casual fan, however, might get lost and wonder where tracks like "Vertigo" and "Elevation" ended up. I'm glad they've gone the experimental route, involving Eno and Lanois in the writing of many of the songs.
