CRITIC REVIEWS

A.V. Club

There are four entirely new songs, most notably the seven-minute “Wallowa Lake Monster.” ... And honestly, everything else here is kind of icing after that one.

AllMusic

The Greatest Gift works best as a companion piece to Carrie & Lowell, a variation that offers a different spin on its themes, but it's also a powerful and absorbing work in its own right, and fans of Stevens' work will appreciate it.

The 405

A simple compilation of oddball tracks, it delivers enough to stand for itself - but is ultimately only really for the enjoyment of Stevens’ long-time fans.

The Guardian

The demos are unnecessary, as is the echo and heft Helado Negro adds to two remixes, but there’s a pleasant Postal Service-style whimsy to others.
