Review by GruvanDahlman
4 stars Well, now... Sometimes you simply go overboard with things. I wanted "Principe d'un giorno" but couldn't resist this box set of all the albums made by Celeste and St. Tropez. Besides being an extremely beautiful box, all white and very classy, it's content is very pleasing indeed. You get both the english and italian version of "Principe..." which is quite fun. For me, who does not speak italian by any means, appreciate the chance to grasp the lyrics. If I have too choose, though, I'll go for the italian version. I have always found that the charm with RPI is strongly connected to the language.

Not everything on here is worth four stars but the point is this, the music is gorgeous and collected in this way it gives you, the listener, a wholeness which I like very much. Strictly not an essential buy by any length but if you do get the chance to get hold of it, please do. It fits in well with the rest of the RPI in your collection and visually it is stunning. Beauty and grace, both musically and visually.
