The generic covers are a bit lazy compared to the MOP box set and the posters basically being the same, but still content wise just a massive collection of great stuff. If you love this album you will love this box set.

finally got round to finishing all of this. the box set is fantastic. the remastered LP of the album sounds good enough. an improvement over recent re-issues but still not as good as the ones from the 80s.
CDs and DVD material is all great. I also love the book, a real trip down memory lane. Cant wait to pick up the Master box when it comes out.
