Government Commissions: BBC Sessions 1996–2003 is a compilation album by the post-rock group Mogwai released in 2005, consisting of sessions recorded between 1996 and 2003 for BBC Radio. Some of the tracks are different from previously released versions – for example, the recording of "R U Still in 2 It?" is entirely instrumental, whereas the studio version on Mogwai Young Team features a lead vocal from Arab Strap member Aidan Moffat.

Complete your Mogwai collection. In my opinion this is Mogwai at their best. And as is often the case: Peel Sessions show wonderful bands at their peak. Since these efforts were recorded over a wide span of of years, it goes to show where the best could be achieved: at the Maida Vale Studios, where all material was recorded save for the briefest track. Everything else they published pales by comparison with these organic washes and surges and implosions.

Government Commissions: BBC Sessions 1996 - 2003 collects some of Mogwai's best performances on John Peel and Steve Lamacq's programs. The compilation's track selections are inspired: taking two songs from each of the band's albums (except Rock Action, from which only "Secret Pint" appears here) and a handful of tracks from their mid-'90s EPs, Government Commissions gives a good idea of how Mogwai's sound evolved. Though die-hard Mogwai fans are probably the most likely to pick this up, Government Commissions works so well that it could also double as a Mogwai greatest-hits collection - something that can't be said about many other live compilations.
