Details Release Date: Jun 02, 2009; Lead Performance: Neil Young (Musician); Genre: Rock

Obsessives expecting a trove of 
unheard songs might be disappointed in this endlessly delayed eight-CD set. There's only a smattering of truly new material on Archives, some of it more interesting than essential. Elsewhere, 
previously released studio and live 
performances dominate, along with 
alternate takes, different mixes, and other odds and ends. Spring for the 
pricey DVD or truly extravagant Blu-ray versions — each a whopping 10 discs — and you'll also get a warehouse's worth of photos, lyrics, and audio and video clips. An impressive package, but fans will be paying big bucks for a lot of stuff they already own. B+
