2 stars Some people will find weird this "two star" rating, but i actually have some reasons to consider this only a collectors' purchase.

In my opinion, this thing costs too much for not having all the studio albums - where's the amazing Atom Heart Mother, the essential debut Piper and the unique Ummagumma, showing the band at their most experimental side? And where are the very underrated soundtracks Obscured by Clouds and More? The Division Bell is not here because it was released later, but i will never understand the point on getting such a expensive compilation set lacking on some important material like the albums above mentioned.

There's actually a strong point in this box set, though. The amazing "Early Singles" can be only found here (at least on where i live, since it is not sold separatedely here). But paying so much even with this tempting material is quite silly in my opinion. Of course, if you can afford it just get it and enjoy all the amazing artwork for the albums and add this valuable treasure to your collection. But most people can't afford this, hence the two star rating.

Eclipse | 2/5 |
