5 stars Absolutely incredible! This is how you make a box set. English Electric I & II were both amazing from the very beginning, and since they were both connected, it makes sense that BBT released a box set including both of them.

But this is NOT a cash-grab from the band. First of all, there's four new tracks. Second, the four tracks weren't effortlessly thrown to the end of the album, but instead, they were nicely placed between tracks from the two main English Electric parts. Third, the tracks were rearranged in a different order that further helped the main concept of the story unravel better. Fourth, the music itself is incredible: not a single minute feels wasted. Both parts were already 5-Star albums for me so of course this was going to be an amazing journey. Fifth, the box set comes with a 96- Page booklet filled with beautiful imagery and Big Big Train's comments on the album itself.

An incredibly complete box set, this is definitely essential. Five Stars.
