    This boxset truly represents a labor of love and is by itself a piece of art. Based on the other comments, I was expecting that the CD 4 would be a disaster-sounding wise but I consider it pretty enjoyable to listen after all. The vinyl sounds pretty good too (8,5/10), but I prefer my original UK pressing, which has a little more punchy bass and better details (10/10). Overall, I'm extremely happy with this release. If there is a third batch released someday and you can afford it (originally 100GBP + shipping), I highly recommend to buy it.
