From, the ultimate progressive rock music website

3 stars OK, here I am reviewing the box set itself, instead of the music of each album individually. I'm talking about the packaging, remastering, compared with the fact that I paid 200$ for it.

First, the packaging is wonderful. Each sleeve is a relatively exact miniature reproduction of the LP sleeve. A very nice work has been done on the packaging, so that the set has something more to offer than all the albums individually. I've read comments about it all over the Internet talking about packaging mistakes (some having 2 of the same album, some missing one album, some having been misprinted, etc.), but mine has come up mistake-less. I give four stars to the packaging, considering it's wonderful, but not essential.

Second, the presentation of the music itself, the remastering. Not much work has been done there, each album has nothing more than the last remastering having been done. They just re-pressed things that has already been made.

So finally, what is to remember of this, if it wasn't for the packaging, the set would be worthless, but considering the fact that the packaging is what it is, the set is a nice investment for someone who has no more than 2-3 albums already, or for a collector.

Oh, by the way, the poster in there is not incredible.
