      I didn't know the first 3 albums had been pressed to vinyl, so I was ecstatic to find out about this box set! I love the first 2 albums, their self-titled especially. It sounds fantastic on vinyl! I had the first 2 releases on CD, and the heavy cardboard case of Tomahawk and embossing on Mit Gas were beautiful. The album covers here are basic, but the music sounds incredible! The reviews complaining about the packaging, I get it, because the CD packaging was stellar, at least on the first 2. But I personally don't mind this set, and I do plan to add Oddfellows. This set was needed in my collection! Glad to own it.

        Someone here who got this box with „Anonymous“ vinyl two times but missing the „Mit Gas“ vinyl?? Got a copy of this box and found out too late, that the „Anonymous“ cover is equipped with the Mit Gas Vinyl too…

          This box set is very pretty, the box itself is pretty thin but its still very visually appealing. I do wish there was more art here though, like the art included with the CDs on printed inners or something. In terms of the pressings:

          Tomahawk: Fantastic pressing, a bit of sibilance on the vocals but I believe there was some present on the CD too so it could just be the recording itself. MUCH better sound quality than the CD overall, killer album too. This box set was worth it for this one alone letalone Mit Gas and Anonymous.

          Mit Gas: This ones odd, Side A is a bit louder than Side B, and the louder tracks on Side A have a fair bit of distortion. Good press outside of that, but definitely the weakest album out of the 3.

          Anonymous: This is definitely the best sounding out of the 3, 0 issues whatsoever here. Definitely my favorite aswell, so damn good.

            Ha, can't believe I bought this for $60 CAD from my local record store back in the day. Great albums that sound good. I don't know if I would pay $500 for this now but hey if that's what you want to spend your paycheck on then go for it.

              The relase should mention the fact, that there was space left for the Oddfellows LP which was not finished at time !
              Quote:"This box contains space to insert the soon to be released 4th Tomahawk LP. In stores summer 2012". Due to "pressing family matters" the album was not finished on time."

                This is an ESSENTIAL STUFF in a 'massive' vinyl edition, in this boxset! The music is so great & the sound is TOP!!!! Some extra info on each album would be helpful BUT i notice that the cd releases / digipaks (i do have all of them) are also without many info. So,not too many information but a LOT OF MUSIC!

                  As others have said the packaging won't blow you away like some other Ipecac releases (Mondo Cane *swoon*), but the sound quality is top. After not really listening to the vinyl set I decided to play the first disc today... yeah clearly a more natural sounding copy of the recording. Very glad I didn't sell it. I've only resold two Patton projects, my MFSL Angel Dust and Lovage. Everything else is such a keeper. Time to buy a few things.

                    Potential new buyers: don't let the negative reviews scare you off from purchasing if you want to. There's really NOTHING wrong with this release. Those complaining about the packaging (and there's one here who hasn't even listened to the records yet, but he's already bitching about the covers) clearly don't understand what music on vinyl is about and are probably just buying records because it's cool to do so.
                    When this came out, the asking price was €37.99 in Europe. That's what you will most likely pay for a normal double record set from a big pop artist. True, the package could have been fancier, but why? And who cares anyway. Only a hipster who buys records for the cool factor of it will complain about that, at this price.
                    This box was well worth the money back then, and still is now. After all, records are for listening, not holding and be looked at. And the quality of the vinyl pressing is really excellent. Wish more albums were released this way: content over style, not the other way around.

                      For a long time I had a very bad opinion about this vinyl version but now I changed my mind. The CD version is just much louder and it seems to be more lively and dynamic at the first impression. Both CD and vinyl sound great to me!!
