AllMusic Review by

Ignoring its headliners Placebo, Green Day, and the Black Keys, Rock en Seine Compilation 2012 is a 16-track collection largely focusing on the underrated and emerging acts that took the stage at the French music festival. Alongside high-profile bands the Shins ("The Rifle's Spiral") and the Dandy Warhols ("Enjoy Yourself"), there are contributions from Mercury Music Prize-winning rapper Speech Debelle ("Blaze Up a Fire"), turntablist crew C2C ("F-U-Y-A"), and Swedish electronic outfit Little Dragon ("Ritual Union").
