Upon its release, Pitchfork said the effort was "as cinematic as its source material" and NME called it "gleeful butchering."
Two songs featured on "The Director's Cut Live: A New Year's Revolution" were not in the original release of "The Director's Cut": Al Green's "Simply Beautiful" and Marc Bolan & T. Rex's "Chariot Choogle".
