4 stars 4.5 stars. This is a six disc box set from those space-walkers from the UK. The music is from 1987 to 2003. "Lost In Space" is a great title for this set of music because that is often the feeling you get.This is what it says on the back of the case. "This set of six discs is a collection, arranged more-or-less chronicologically, of things that we've never released in any form before. Ah-except for "Frozen North II", strictly speaking & "Damo". But they were both live versions & very different from what you've got here. Some of these pieces were recorded before we'd even thought about the distant possibility of selling stuff to other people to listen to (again), while others were recorded after we'd begun releasing cds, but found themselves on the cutting-room floor because they somehow didn't belong on whatever album we were in the middle of assembling,or they were too long & we didn't want to abbreviate them."

There are notes with each track as well in the liner notes. I also wanted to mention that on the Planet Mellotron site Andy gives this five Trons.That means it's stuffed to the gills with mellotron, and if your a fan of RADIO MASSACRE INTERNATIONAL's early mellotron drenched albums then this is a must.

Disc four is my favourite as we get such powerful soundscapes filled with atmosphere and mellotron.Quite haunting at times too. I'm not going to go track by track since there's about 7 hours of music here but for fans of this band you should know that the music here doesn't take a back seat to their official releases. And I find the info about each track very interesting.

This is a valuable addition to my RADIO MASSACRE INTERNATIONAL collection, in fact it really completes it.
