3 stars I would give 5 stars to the third CD as it does contain classic unheard live footage and Twilight Alehouse and Happy the Man . The first half of CD4 gets also 4 stars as it is also mega interesting to listen to stuff still unreleased and some of it very apt. The second half of that CD is really badly recorded and of limited interest unless you really value the first Revelation so it gets 2 stars. As for CD1 and CD2 , I did not particularly care for the studio version (see my review as I say that it would have been better as a single album) , the live version with all the vocals redone is not likely to enthrall me.As a matter of fact , I am just short of feeling that it was dishonest to redo those vocals, but at least they announced it. This is why this long awaited box-set does not rank very highly in my book
