Very lame cash-in, boring cover, no rarities. A nice box set would have been nice. I'm sure his fans would eat that up.

While this isn't a spectacular release, does it really qualify as a cash-in when it comes seven years after his death?

If it gets kids to recognize this great talent and discover his other stuff, it's worthwhile.

Meh. One track from XO and one from Figure 8 seems a bit weird.

Why yes, there is nothing people love more than buying a CD full of songs they already own in order to get that one rare track.
