I, too, purchased this set directly from NMH and it was well worth the price if if you're a crazed fan like I am. The vinyl is fairly quiet and it's packed with great music. The full length studio albums sound incredible and there is lovely art and small details to surprise and delight you. For example, the singles are completely different versions vs. what was on the album. 10/10

It's still available on their website as of the time I post this for $100. Always check to see if something like this is unavailable on official websites before purchasing something on Discogs.

If anyone has a copy of the "Little Birds" 7-inch they'd be willing to sell send me a message! I bought my box used and it was missing that single.

Two questions, hoping someone can answer:

1) I bought this set used today and it's missing one of the posters, the one that isn't of the art on the outside of the box. Does anyone know if it's possible to get that poster separately?

2) Does anyone have recommendations for outer sleeves that could fit the box? Looking at the box set sleeves available on Amazon it seems like they're all just a little too small for how wide this is. Mine has some wear at the sides and I'd like to mitigate that as much as I can. I have a few other sets that also don't have sleeves right now that I'd like cover up.

Found a used copy for $18. One of my prized possessions, and a fantastic release too! Shame it's not as hyped as Aeroplane.

Original review for the 2015 box.
An impressive piece added to my collection, but was it worth it? To first comment on the package and visuals I have to say that this is a beautiful box. The 2 LPs have thick and sturdy gatefolds that feel premium with lyrics inside, likewise with the EPs and singles that come with their own 7" plastic sleeves for outer protection. These will last a lifetime over Im sure. The only less than stellar part is the paper steps of sorts, that hold and separate the different sleeves in the box. Its thin and hollow but serves its purpose if you are careful. Mine was already damaged when it arrived however. To fix bends I recommend stuffing the hollow areas with cardboard or other filling material. This should help keep its shape. The extras like title cards and posters are all nice as well.
To comment on the music Id say its very well made for this set. I cant compare with any originals so dont take it as a definitive best version. But on its own the pressing is quiet enough and mastering just right for this type of music. The only negative might be if you look carefully at the deadwax in a strong light you can see the bubble like surface which usually indicate bad vinyl used or wrong temperatures set on the press itself but luckily it still plays rather silent except for the runout grooves where the blury surface is. The deadwax might be better on the 2011 box but the loud mastering would cover it up even if it was an issue, at least for AOtS which GOLDEN did a stellar job on as usual. SAEs mastering for Avery Island has Jeff Magnums voice a little weaker at times but its still good. Both can get a little taken back and sound less dynamic when it gets busy but it could just be a stylistic choice for all I know. My favorite song, Holland 1945 I feel especially lacks those dynamics and needs more bass. The 45RPM single actually sounds better on that track despite being a picture disc and closer to the spindle. But you can see that the groove space is much wider on the single and therefore has wider cuts and better dynamics. A smart resolve for those who really like that song, I just wish it wasnt a picture disc.
In the end I have mixed thoughts. The overall quality is good but I dont find myself taking it out too often. Its a bit of a hassle depending on what you want to play. But if you really gush over all of NMHs work then this is absolutely something you will love. The rest would do best by just sticking to the albums you like for now, the asking price of around 150$ is too high to justify a handful of plays. I myself am still glad to have it and hope to appreciate its entirety more in the future.

Edit: The runouts match the original press exactly so I think its more likely they made new stamps from those. Some also say the 2009 reissue of AOtS sounds better in that regard so pick that up if you dont want the box.
Despite that I think its a smart resolve. Having original cuts in the box to please the purists while also adding upgrades in the form of the singles for those wanting the better sound on a few lacking tracks.

Equipment used:
Rega RP1 with Nagaoka MP-110 cartridge
Cyrus 2 Amplifier
System Fidelity SF-3050 speaker towers
Custom HQ made speaker cables

Anyone know anything else about this and You've Passed, like where they were sold, how many at each show and the like? I went to see them in Columbus and I didn't see either of these at the merch table, nor did I see empty spaces for them leading me to believe they weren't at my show.

At least I hope not, I'd be so upset if they were and I just missed it.

I love the boxset. It is pretty great, but I have Version 1 of the "new" version which "preceded the larger, and now sold out, pressing of the NMH 001 box set. There are 200 available of each version" This quote is taken from the Walkingwallofwords.com releases page. I want to make a new version, but I am really bad at submissions and do not know precisely where to begin.

I agree with the previous reviews re the fit and finish of this set and the great sound quality. I didn't own a turntable until I heard about and purchased this vinyl-only set.
