AllMusic Review by

On Air -- The BBC Sessions will ultimately be of interest only to hardcore Shamen fans, and even they may find the colledction somewhat disappointing. There's not much difference between the studio versions and these live cuts, which may be frustrating to completists -- after all, live versions should offer revelations. There are no revelations here, only competent live cuts that sound exactly like they were recorded in the studio. That may be enough for some hardcore fans, but it may also frustrate them since it really offers nothing new.
