Biography

“While driving though Chicago, on tour, we stopped finally to visit Wilco at their studio, The Loft. They had invited us to come check it out several times over the years, but this would finally be the day. It’s a great place—a sea of instruments in a relaxed, open working environment. It’s cool, but what really converted us was hearing the new Mavis Staples tracks ... Read more in Amazon's Low Store

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I agree with the review above - as a Low fan who has witnessed their intense live experience, bought all the albums and fumbled together various CD singles (many of which are represented here), this represents a terrific, exciting opportunity to get the whole picture (with the exception of the Exit Paper Soundtrack, which is kind of a Holy Grail for Low fans). Low are one of those ultra-humble bands you actually feel you could 'hang' with in your local or - if you're a bit older - chill in the park while your respective kids play at the swings. They are a remarkably likeable band - and their songs reflect that. If you're the kind of person who can read a book to the end or sit down for more than two minutes without using your mobile phone, you ought to like Low - if you like Nick Drake or the Cowboy Junkies, likewise. The Low style is a real slow-burner style - and it wasn't surprising they covered the Pink Floyd song 'Fearless' or The Smiths 'Last Night I dreamt that somebody loved me' so well. If you wish to purchase a Low album that might tell you whether you'll like this - try Things We Lost In the Fire or Secret Name. But, be warned, if you do like what you hear, you'll start a love affair you'll never quit!

This set is so good it's frightening. In fact, I can only bring myself to listen to 1 CD per week - rationing myself, deferring gratification, protecting my aging self from over-excitement, call it what you will.
This is wise music, brave music, music so deep it can hypnotise you. And it's funny too - I love the moment in Open Arms on disc 2 where Alan's angelic voice breaks and he laughs in mid-note. Oh Jesus, stop reading this and buy this incredible bargain now!

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Jason Parkes #1 HALL OF FAME on 1 Jun. 2005
Format: Audio CD
'A Lifetime of Temporary Relief' collects pretty much everything Low released in a non-album sense over a decade, taking in many hard to find joys and offering up a fourth-disc which is a double-sided DVD with promos etc on. 'A Lifetime...' is wonderfully put together, with great artwork and sleeve-notes packed with rarities and alternate-versions of tracks familiar from albums such as 'Secret Name' & 'Long Division.'
Too many songs to detail here- but there are some of the finest Low-songs I've heard present- 'Tomorrow One', 'Peanut Butter Toast and American Bandstand','Joan of Arc','Try Try Try', 'Don't Drop the Baby' & 'Because You Stood Still.' There are some wonderful alternate versions of songs I was previously familiar with- a synth-heavy version of 'I Remember' (which I prefer to the original), a demo of 'Prisoner' & a demo of 'Will the Night.'
Alongside the many great self-composed tracks, there are a wealth of cover-versions- Low being renowned for taking others songs and melding them round their distinctive sound. The strong cover-versions here include 'Last Night I Dreamt That Somebody Loved Me' (The Smiths), 'I Started a Joke' (The Bee Gees), 'Heartbeat' (Wire), 'Fearless' (Pink Floyd'), 'Open Arms' (Journey!!), 'Blowin'in the Wind' (Bob Dylan),'Lord, Can You Hear Me?' (Spacemen 3), 'Surfer Girl' (The Beach Boys) & 'Back Home Again' (John Denver). Some of these cover-versions seem superior to the original- I particularly love The Smiths' cover, of a song I rank as one of their finest, particularly when the vocals come together, then reduce down to one-vocal again- the vocal-approach mirroring the theme of the song...
'A Lifetime of Temporary Relief' is an excellent collection of tracks, and a compilation up there with Yo La Tengo's 'Prisoners of Love', Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds' 'B-Sides', Belle and Sebastian's 'Push Barman...' & The Replacements' 'All for Nothing/Nothing at All.'

Format: Audio CD
The thing about Low is that even their b-sides or compilation tracks are more soulful or life-affirming than the entire musical output of many other artists, so if the thought of buying a collection of such tracks is putting you off then think again. What you get here is an absolute bargain. Nearly four hours of music over three cds (including the very rare b-side tracks from the long deleted 'Finally' ep aswell as some previously unreleased tunes and a batch of covers that would make a great album in their own right), and a double sided dvd featuring three documentaries, live tracks and all of the Low videos to date. And of course most of the tracks are ...very...very...slow, in the trademark Low way. Similar in style to bands such as Codiene or Galaxie 500, but with the addition of two of the most beautiful and haunting voices I've ever heard there is no better 'slowcore' group out there.
So, buy the album. Then buy their entire back catelogue. Then listen again, and again, and again. And see them live too if you can - one of the most incredible experiences known to man. And then if you find that you don't like this you don't have feeling and would be better off listening to bands like Stereophonics and Ocean Colour Scene. Go figure...

Format: Audio CD
I've just got this in the post - 3 days ahead of release! It is amazing that you can get three packed CD's and one packed DVD for such a low price, aside from the quality of what is contained within. This is music to die for, and I can only reiterate what the previous reviewers have said. If you love music that speaks to you, that engages you emotionally and that just sends tingles down your spine, then this is for you. This may not be the 'best' introduction (albums like 'Trust' and 'Secret Name' would be a great starting point), but there is not a dull or duff moment here. This is creative genius at its peak, and what a long peak!
I love Alan and Mimi's voices and this set is just manna from heaven. Can't wait for the next studio album!
