Issued in 2008, this collection presents a fine set of BBC radio sessions by the Scottish indie-pop ensemble Belle & Sebastian. Much of the compilation consists of recordings dating back to 1996-97, a formative period when singer/guitarist Stuart Murdoch and company rarely performed in concert, making these live-in-the-studio tracks significant, particularly a notably altered version of "Lazy Line Painter Jane" (here titled "Lazy Jane"). The four previously unreleased songs that Belle & Sebastian cut for John Peel in 2001 are the true highlights of BBC SESSIONS, however, with the act expressing its adoration for the Go-Betweens on the charmingly quirky "Shoot the Sexual Athlete," and vocalist Isobel Campbell providing one of her more memorable and vibrant turns with the band on "The Magic of a Kind Word."

A chronological set of live in-studio musical snapshots, THE BBC SESSIONS illustrates this Scottish septet's organic and determined rise to soft-spoken fame. - Billboard
