The quality control on these 4 LP sets is really poor. Ive had 3 copies of this...the issue is mainly with warping and dishing. With the last set, one of the records were shaped like a bowl! Giving up and waiting for the forthcoming reissues...

It doesnt get better than this edition!
The whole(great) album plus a lot of b-sides,rarities and stuff.
A crucial album for artistic reasons,and as individuals i'm guessing.They were leaving behind the whole no wave- post hardcore sound which made them who they were and going deeper into noise and experimentalism.Offcourse these changes would make themselves more obvious in the years to come.Cause DIRTY has a lot of feedback and noise.A product of the early 90's,maybe the last era that rock 'n roll still meant something.This box is crucial not only for the fetishism of it,but it also captures their art aesthetic,perfectly balanced between pop and underground,black and white and light.Now that SONIC YOUTH are history every(ok,allmost) album they made has a significant position in the history of counter-culture.
