Anyone have the outer box only that they are willing to sell?


December 8, 2018
When I asked about getting a replacement for my poorly pressed copy of Königforst from the Box, Kompakt let me know individual releases of the 3xLP albums will be coming next year.

Does anyone else's Box smell a bit funny? Or is it just me?

Wonderful experience hearing these on vinyl - depth of sound is amazing. Aside from a couple of loud (unintentional) pops on Oktember it all sounds clean and open. Packaging is okay - Good, sturdy, attractive box. The art book is a bit of a let down unfortunately and I would agree that - despite being nicely bound and well presented - the art work itself is nothing special with the images appearing to be rendered using a basic watercolour/impressionistic Photoshop filter. It would have been better to have had something more akin to the music - in fact the original photographs would have been an improvement, with perhaps some subtle layers/digital manipulation - a mixture of hand rendered and digital. With regards to sleeves: I changed mine to poly-lined option as I was concerned that the vinyl would get scuffed using those supplied (not great) In summary: Recommended despite flaws - for the quality of sounds alone. 9/10 for pressing quality, 7/10 for packaging etc.

Hearing these albums on vinyl, cranked up on headphones, reveals so much I’ve never heard. Unreal. 10/10

Now I've had the proper time to absorb these albums I can say that it's a 10/10 for me. Not saying much as I already have a 10/10 for the originals. But, after numerous listens the Gas Box offers new sometimes hidden moments to classic tracks heard hundreds of times. Just sublime beautiful music. About the packaging: the box itself is ok. Heavy cardboard covered in a texture (tho, it's easy to get dirty). The album sleeves are ok. I have the originals and have compared them. I assume since it's been years since they came out the originals are of lower quality. Hence some of the "photoshop blurring". Understandable. The black inner sleeves are pretty lame. They easily attract finger prints and look cheep. They should have just used professional black sleeves with poly lining. The label stickers are also lame. They should have A, B, C etc...on them like Narkopop and they should be in color! Kompakt saving a buck in the end. The "art" book had potential but utterly fails. The book looks cheap and the photos are so filtered with that boring photoshop crap it's old after page one. The Pop Ambinet covers are a million times better and they aren't that cool. Over all I'm happy to have. I don't play the originals anymore and now have a complete set with longer takes. Music: A+. Art: C

I avoided buying this for a long time because I have Nah und Fern and have listened to these albums on cd countless times. The sound is astonishing and I'm thrilled to have the full-length edits. A few minor issues: I don't like the flimsy magazine paper sleeves and the art book has kind of a photoshop-filter look that I'm not crazy about (the Narkopop art is better). This is timeless music that fully lives up to its reputation.

...pheew!! :P I bought this as a preorder and received it at release date but haven't had time to open it until this morning, Ascension Day 2017, half a year later.
I'm relieved to find that all vinyls appear to be in "perfect order", no finger prints, just unaudible paper scuff on one side that doesn't affect play at all. Sad to hear that others got damaged goods.
Sadly, I've had the same experience with quite many of brand new records, DEEP scratches, finger prints, examples The The - Soul Mining (also a box!), Goldfrapp - Silver Eye (clear vinyl).
I've returned them all and have received replacement copies that were OK. I can't remember any malconducts like this in the good old pre-CD days...?
Wonder what the ratio is in this GAS box, as many are so disappointed.

A word on the artwork of the box set individual sleeves. Are the sleeves intended to have that 'blur' effect on both the background image but also on the text for example 'Konigsforst' title on the reverse of the individual sleeve is slightly out of focus compared to the clearer white text at the bottom of the sleeve and same for the rest of them. Even the embossed titles on all the sleeves seems blurry? Is this how they are on the originals and how they are intended to look?

Any plans to release these 3LP editions separately?

The lacquers / metal work are there, just please press them anywhere other than MPO, I suggest Record Industry or Pallas.
