Relentless was met by critical praise around the world, with MOJO hailing its “persistently brilliant songwriting...surely how Chrissie Hynde always wanted The Pretenders to sound.” “The new prime of Chrissie Hynde,” declared Uncut while Record Collector affirmed the collection in a five-star rave as quite simply “the best Pretenders album in 20 years.”
