4 stars How to rate a musical career?

Santa was a nice chap this Christmas, leaving this little duesy in my sock (which is now unwearable, after being turned into a huge square sock). What we have here is the latest offering from the money machine that is Pink Floyd, the 40th Aniversary Boxset, which includes every studio albums released by the band. Certainly, a piece of their catalogue likely to be ignored by the age-old Floyd fan, who already hasall those albums and probably more. So, musically, what do we have here? Well, every CD is the latest available version of the record, which includes the 2003 mix of Dark Side of the Moon, the 2004 mix of The Final Cut, and the 2007 remaster of Piper At The Gates Of Dawn. There is nothing new in here, singles, outcuts, unheard tracks, etc... No extra disc with documentary material or whatever. Just the 14 studio albums of the band. Is that enough to get you to spend the 150£/200? it costs? Probably not.

So how does one make this boxset sell? The marketeer answer would probably be put it in a nice package - and so they did. Inside a hard cardboard box, 14 exact replicas of the original UK vynil releases are stored. And I mean EXACT - or almost, since they are now the size of CD's (whose cover is itself a replica of the vynil centre stickers - nice touch). This includes the superb Dark Side of the Moon and Wish You Were Here packages. Again, what use is this to someone who already has these CD's or, even better, the original LP's? Absolutely none.

Apart from an aniversary poster and what seems to be two oversized coasters, there is nothing else in here. There was a DVD announced, but the idea was cut. There is no book, like there was on the Shine On boxset 15 years ago. So what good is this boxset for? Basically, it is perfect for new fans who might be interested in getting the band's catalogue all in one shot, and just as they were originally released, only updated to new times of the digital age. It is also a perfect gift. Sure I had some Floyd CD's (nealy all, actually), but I found myself cheerfully getting rid of those ugly plastic boxes, by offering them round as Christmas gifts.

So, how to rate it? This boxset is quite near to useless, and you might hate it for it. But it is visually stunning (and, it is never enough to say it, it's also musicaly stunning), and for that you might simply fall in love with it. In terms of extras, it is miles away from the much-critisized Shine On boxset.

We cannot give multiple stars to one single entry, so how to rate it? It is not a thing for completionists, however it could be so for collectors and avid fans, hence 2 stars would seem fair. But how can one neglect that inside is some 28 years of music produced by Pink Floyd? That alone is worth 5 stars in my book. So I guess I will give several scores:

New to Pink Floyd? -> 5 stars (Just get it)

Avid fan, interest in artwork? -> 4 stars (Get it and sell or give away your old CD's)

Casual fan, have some albums, want the rest? -> 3 stars (Get it and sell or give away your old CD's)

Old git with everything by Floyd? -> 2 stars (Get only if you're a nutter and must have EVERYTHING by Floyd)

Hate Floyd, no money to spend? -> 1 star (Forget it)

Since I fit in the second group, that's the score I'm giving in this review. Did I mention that I love it?

SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Symphonic Team
5 stars I walked away from his house totally speechless.

Visiting a friend turned into a drool fest as he pulled out his prized Pink Floyd box set. It is a massive monolith box with every studio Pink Floyd release in existence. Nothing special about that, as I have the lot on Cd so why did my eyes turn into saucers and my drool hit the floor? The packaging is incredible. The disks are of course remastered just like the Discovery set. However, the Discovery set is all new packaging and unrelated material that is anathema to all true PF fans. We didn't ask for it, we don't need it and now we are stuck with it. This earlier box set though is a masterful visual feast.

Each album sleeve is an exact miniature replica of the vinyl album cover and even the CDs have the same labels. It is beautiful to behold, unlike the pyramidical art emblazoned all over and inundating all the recent releases. Why? These CDs look cheap and tacky attempting to package the lot under one boring design; no thanks! The "Oh By The Way" set is simply flawless, when it comes to the album art, it has not been tampered with in any way and it is as if one has miniaturised their vinyl collection. It is the best way to experience PF's extensive discography. It's even got the postcard from DSOTM. Relics is missing but not a drama, and again no live albums as in the Discovery set. These are not the latest remasters either but they are incredible for all of the reasons mentioned. The latest remasters are hardly any different and perhaps spoiled by over mastering at times.

I believe both box sets have merit, but this set is certainly truer to the Floyd legacy, uncorrupted by over designed tinkering. A case in point, in this set the original packaging of WYWH is to die for, including the black plastic over sleeve, with handshake design, and you remove this to reveal the actual cover we all recognise, but how good is that packaging! The coasters are here and little booklet replicas, and none of this is available anymore off the shelf. We have the Experience and Immersion series but it's not the way it was intended to be, designed by Pink Floyd, not some marketing money grabbing company.

As far as the sound, I listened from the set to Animals, AMLOR, WYWH, and DB, and the sound was as gorgeous as the Discovery set. I couldn't tell any difference apart from a few bonus tracks omitted. No complaints at all in every department. There is a poster and it's okay as a bonus. There is no book, but I have plenty of those already, and magazines. The box is very snazzy too, in ultimate cool colours and its great how the whole thing fits together neatly. The real drawcard is the album artwork, front and back reproductions of the original vinyls, down to the sleeve liner notes and original label designs. I want it, but it means getting the whole set again, and that is not viable. All I can say is it's the best way to collect the whole set, and will cost a packet though worth every cent. If you have very little from Pink Floyd, it's a must! See it, snavvle it, love it.

3 stars Really? A box set of EVERY album this band put out, from PIPER AT THE GATES OF DAWN to THE DIVISION BELL. Do I hear a ka-ching? Big money to plop down for a set that includes even stuff like UMUGUMMA and MORE and OBSCURED BY CLOUDS. I want the essential Floyd. Ya know, stuff like ANIMALS, THE WALL, ... (read more)

2 stars So, if I were the record company who d like to sell the same old story again, Id try to give something more, new, different or a LOT for 120 pounds plus postage. Any 10-year-old kid can download any Floyd album for free, so here we dont expect only the pure music, but some new ideas and suprises ... (read more)

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 ... (read more)
