3 stars This is a boxset of Alux's albums in their time on the label Discos de Centroamérica, which are their first 6. All albums are remastered. I can't compare the sound of the remasters to the originals, since I only have Conquista on vinyl and CD and the others I only have the CD. In the case of Conquista, the remaster was of some benefit for the music.

I think this is a good buy, because finding the albums individually is hard and expensive. This is a much cheaper option. As a boxset it fails to deliver any extras, since it doesn't have a book, bonus discs, outtakes or extra photos and the package is mediocre. But I rate this 3 stars because the music in there is really good and I found it at a very good price.

3 stars A boxset... great idea to get their first 6 LPs. The name of this always makes me laugh. It means "From the beggining to the End" and it is not by any means... well, from the beggining, yes, here we have their first albums, but we don't have not even their last LP on the DIDECA era "Leyenda" even less their other two albums recorded with Sony Music. Less, we don't have also the non comercial EP "Con tus Manos" published in 1988 and only 200 copies in vynil. A complete raritie on their discography...

The box said that it's a remastered version, but I found that a couple of the albums are not remastered, and I have the little suspicious that they mix the old albums with the new remastered versions. But well, DIDECA was a very short minded label, now it's gone, maybe because of it's own mediocracy but well, now we can get this boxset through "Jaguar Record", which has published the same compilations, just altering a little bit the covers of the albums with an awful filter which gives the impression of a cheaper material...

After all this inside, I think this is a perfect package for new fans, or for those who have older material or only the vynil records, so you can safe those and give this a spin... the complete material, just as you can find it separately... so, there's no bonus, nor extras, nor nothing... but is a good way to get the complete material... the rest of the DIDECA era is out there so this is a good idea... shame that we are still waiting for some obscure archives or maybe demo versions... but well... 3 stars for the plenty material we get...
