4 stars Having a comprehensive collection of Floyd albums is a good thing. I do have this collection but not in this box set version.

First there is, again, no Relics so am glad I already have my Japanese edition of this album (compilation) which really needed to expanded; include Money from Dance Songs and The Embryo from Works as well as the extra material from Shine On, a 1990s box set oddly incomplete.

Secondly, the 1 CD editions of Dark Side and WYWH were released in tandem with the separate Experience Editions. It would have been every nice if the concert CDs had been released either as per the Experience Editions or as their own Wembley 1974 set exclusive to the box set. Not to mention the third CD of The Wall.

I'm sure there will be another box set to come some Christmas time near you and perhaps will be comprehensive possibly in hybrid SACD format as well.

Music wise I rate most things PF very highly one of rock's finest and music's more significant rock contributors; the reviews here give good ideas - I tend to go with the more highly rated assessments of musical content not caring about the politics behind the say, later releases.

This set is good, very good, but caution to those who think they get the full picture. Still a few purchases to go. For yet another box set I really think more could have been done to benefit the PF consumer.

So, it's excellent but this could so easily have been better without going to much effort. Perhaps the general listener with this on their shelf will be fine with it, more power to them. But the nutty fanatics who look at every detail (lunatics us all) want the COMPLETE set.

And more.
