AllMusic Review by Heather Phares

Gift Wrapped: The Best of the Arrogant Worms celebrates a decade's worth of work from Canada's comedy-folk trio and introduces their work to the United States. The album gathers the highlights from their seven Canadian albums, which skewer pop music ("Celine Dion," "Boy Band"), religion ("Jesus' Brother Bob"), and cultural trends ("A Man Has Needs," "Carrot Juice Is Murder," and "Idiot Road"). Other highlights include "Big Fat Road Manager," "Me Like Hockey," and "Rippy the Gator." Live versions of songs like "Malcolm" and the previously unreleased "Dog Named Bob" and "Song Inside My Head" also make this collection worthwhile for Worms fans who already have all of their albums.
