Tenhle dáreček by měl mít každý pravý kjúrista doma na čestném místě. Už jen kvůli krásně vypravené knižní podobě obsahující kromě čtyř CD spoustu fotek a zevrubné komentáře ke všem přítomným položkám. Ty tvoří v drtivé většině početné b-strany singlů, které určitě nejeden fanoušek už dávno toužil mít takhle hezky pohromadě, doplňují je pak písně ze soundtracků, bonusových albových edic, tributních desek i nějaké ty nevydané kousky.

Samozřejmě, že i po hudební stránce jsou to hody. Dokážou uspokojit choutky nostalgické, badatelské i čistě posluchačské a dokládají, že The Cure byli naprosto zásadní veličinou přinejmenším pro 80. léta. Přísně chronologické řazení nahrávek je logické a vítané. Umožňuje sledovat různé vývojové fáze kapely s podobným efektem jako při poslechu řadových alb.

První CD představuje dobrodružné hledání ideálního tvaru od postpunkových juvenilií přes černočerné depkaření, klávesově roztančené "veselé singlíky" až k dokonalé syntéze toho všeho v období Head on the Door. Druhý disk zachycuje zlatou éru konce 80. let a právě na něm najdeme nejvíc skladeb, které zdatně konkurují svým známějším albovým sourozencům. Tehdy byla Robertova parta nejkreativnější, plná nápadů a nevysychající chuti experimentovat. Tuhle autorskou neposednost už další dva oddíly postrádají. S deskou Wish se rukopis kapely usazuje, variuje už vymyšlené, ale pořád to dělá zatraceně dobře a písní, které by... číst dále
