Incredible box-set: 4CD and a huge amount of booklets, stickers... all printed wonderfully on every side. Superb artwork ever. Highly recommended. No question: the Song of the second moon was the most pioneering electro track with shocking melodyline and instrumentation. The birth of the electro. There are similar good traks more. If you download the material is understandable but the complete treasure-box to own is the real thing! I will never sell mine!
