Editorial Reviews

New York Times - Kelefa Sanneh
[This compilation] includes obscure but justly beloved forebears (Felt, Shop Assistants), mainstream juggernauts (like Oasis, above, and Blur; without them this box probably wouldn’t exist) and plenty of bands that seized the British spotlight...
Pitchfork
The Brit Box comes housed in a package made to look like a typical English phone booth -- complete with a battery-powered flickering lightbulb. Also noteworthy, but not nearly as cool as the miracle of electricity: an 80-page booklet bursting at the seams with photos, interviews, essays, and memories from the likes of Creation's Alan McGee, producers Stephen Street and Alan Moulder, and numerous Brit Box artists.
