    For fans of Alphaville, this is not a bad collection at all. Hearing early demos of songs that would go on to be classics is a treat, and of special interest is Disc 5, which is essentially the original version of Marian Gold's solo album "So Long Celeste," before WEA forced Marian to allow The Kid & Jon to turn it into 90s electronica.

    As others have said, the biggest problem with this collection is that nincompoops on Discogs and eBay are trying to sell it for hundreds to thousands of US dollars. Do not buy it at those prices. Dreamscapes is a curiosity, a treat for those who are interested in the kind of material a band creates behind the scenes before the albums go on sale. Even if you are the world's biggest Alphaville fan, you will listen to this collection all the way through exactly once, and may on occasion revisit the better unreleased tracks such as "The End" or "Whales." You can easily peruse the Dreamscapes track list on YouTube.

    The only real value in owning the original set is A) adding to your Alphaville collection, and B) owning the booklet. Neither of those things is worth $899. If the resellers get wise and drop the price down to $100, and you are a big Alphaville fan, then maybe you can splurge.

      Although most of the tracks on this compilation are very rare, a lot of them have been released on Crazy Show and other CDs that the band have released. Indeed, the asking price for this boxset is ridiculous, I was passed on the FLAC files. The FLAC files are not lossy because the band never used the tape to tape analogue process and there fore anything that comes from these files are CD quality, 42KHZ and 128bps.

      The first 3 albums were released on Vinyl, but the 4th, Salvation, is not yet released. Marian has said that the cost of a double album is too much for the band

      If someone would offer this boxset for €200, I would gladly pay it

        This collection is not quite so bad as the previous reviewer says, but it is indeed pretty overblown and self-indulgent.
        Not to mention the asking prices for any copies that come up for sale are completely insane.

        Which is a shame, as amongst these 125 tracks lurk some real diamonds, most notably the demo versions for the tracks of their first album and the brilliant "Traumtänzer", which sadly was never released anywhere else.

          Most of this should have been left on the cutting room floor. Alphaville was a major musical influence for me and I'd argue some of their albums are timeless standards, but I have to say this collection was a big disappointment musically. Hardcore AV fans may find this collection of demos, remixed demos, and rough sounding live tracks to be valuable curiosity, with some rare insight to the origins of some wonderful songs. However, even the most devout would have a hard time actually to listening to one of these discs in a sitting. They are unpleasant, especially compared to their smooth new-wave and synth-pop productions like 'Forever Young' and 'Breathtaking Blue'.
