    Does anyone else not have inner sleeves on all four of these records? The official unboxing shows that all of them have polylined innersleeves. My copy only has those for the main album and Sun Giant EP.

        Honestly my favorite thing in my collection. The debut album is one of my favorite albums ever and the Sun Giant EP is phenomenal too, hell everything else included is. The box itself is stunning with the beautiful artwork and a very smart magnet thingy way to open it up. There's a beautiful booklet inside with a lot of personal insight from Robin Pecknold on how these projects came to be. Press quality and mastering is top notch too. Get this if you love Fleet Foxes.

          The European release is the one to get here. All discs were newly cut at Sterling Sound. The US boxset simply presents a repress of the first self-titled album, while everything else included is the new Sterling cuts. Their self-titled is my favorite and getting the European box was a no-brainer for that new cut, which as others have stated blows the original away. Highly recommended!

            Box is beautiful, definitely the best I've personally seen. My LP is also warped, but seems to play okay. Overall, I find this mix to improve on the US one (comparing to my Newbury Comics Orange release). I find it to be slightly punchier with more vocal and top end clarity, I'm hearing some subtle details I've not heard on the US pressing - Overall it seems more natural sounding. It's not a huge difference, but enough that I think it's worth it to seek out the European version. I ordered off HHV and it arrived in the US pretty quickly.

              One of the best boxsets out there, a canvas box with a magnetic lid on the side, how amazing is that! Comes with a great booklet and liner notes which make the package complete. Although my album is slightly warped it still sounds good and all the EP's are pristine. Very silent and great dynamic range. My box does have some edge wear but that was due to the way of shipping. But nothing worth mentioning.

                  First off, this is a really beautiful set; a lot of good detail in the presentation, such as the booklet, magnet opening wrap around box and the fantastic reproductions of the sleeves. The main LP cover is stunning compared to past releases.
                  The tracks included in the set could only be bettered by the inclusion of the alternate version of Mykonos (might have been nice as a separate 7").
                  Unfortunately, my copy has a 'outdent' on each side of the main album (not sure what it's called but instead of an indent, it goes out); in the middle of Meadowlarks and at the very end of Ragged Wood. Both outdents thud a little, which is a shame.
                  I wonder if there were too many pressed for the level of demand, that's why the price has dropped.
                  I couldn't recommend this highly enough (even though my favourite FF LP is Helplessness Blues).

                    Sounds perfect, and the whole collection looks and feels beautiful.

                      A very nice box indeed. Any fan will love this with slick magnetic hinges of the lid and sturdy material mostly. Some seams and the fold holding the booklet was damaged during shipping for my copy however so ask for those to be replaced by the seller if possible
                      The vinyl is mostly extremely quiet as should be expected by Record Industry and the sleeves feel nice if a bit flimsy perhaps. The biggest concern for me is really the lack of inner sleeves for 2 of the EPs.
                      Ive been looking for their first 6 track EP and am happy to report that Sterling has done a fine job on the music here too. It feels naturally punchy and rich with bottom and top end presence. Even with a slight lack of dynamics it still fits for these more short and poppy songs I feel.
                      The LP is similar in quality but perhaps with less presence and more dynamics instead. I cant compare with an original Golden cut but I recall my other Green vinyl press being sort of similar in quality.
                      In any case this is a fantastic box for newcomers with nothing yet on vinyl and die hard fans who want it all.
