7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Neil Wilkes on 16 Jun. 2013
Format: Audio CD
This is a superb value box, with the first 4 albums already available in the remastered series (track for track identical) and the "assorted" compilation as disc 5 bringing us most of the material on the second CD of the 4th album's remastered re-issue so there is very, very little new here and as such this box really is for either collectors or those who missed the recent remastered re-issues and if you fall into either of those categories, buy this immediately.
What did strike me as very welcome though were the 6 live tracks from 1987 - presumably the whole show was recorded so I for one would like to see the rest of it appear sooner rather than later, as it sounds a lot better than the later "So Alive" live album.

Very highly recommended even if you do not know the band, you should take the opportunity offered here and enjoy.

These records would also sound awesome in 5.1 surround as well.

15 of 16 people found the following review helpful By S. J. Webbon on 14 May 2013
Format: Audio CD
A very comprehensive collection of the band's recordings from their first incarnation 1985-1989 which includes the four original albums with bonus tracks and a fifth disc which compiles additional rarities (including The Bubblemen!) and live recordings. The albums are no longer available individually on CD.
Under-appreciated in Europe (where the expectation was for these ex-members of Bauhaus to produce sombre, dark 'Gothic' music), Love And Rockets were capable of a far more colourful sonic palate, as these CD's attest. Starting with their rocking-soul debut, a cover of 'Ball Of Confusion', they created a unique melange of hard and soft psychedelia spiced with early rock 'n' roll, funk and general strangeness.

SEVENTH DREAM OF TEENAGE HEAVEN
"Though the years have deadened its impact somewhat, there is still a visceral thrill to be drawn from replaying the first Love and Rockets album, a sense of the first step taken towards a brave new world, and a miasmic whirl of psychedelic intent that masks intents even darker than the preceding Bauhaus ever envisioned. Recorded and released in 1985, riding to club acclaim on the back of the "Ball of Confusion" remake, and aligning its makers with a destiny and fame that no one could ever have predicted, Seventh Dream of Teenage Heaven ranks among the most deceptive debut albums of the 1980s." - Dave Thompson All Music Guide

<<EXPRESS>>
"Rich in sonic detail, the neo-psychedelic Express offers a listening experience like no other album -- guitars spiral to dizzying heights from beds of sound, arrangements swirl, songs change and mutate.

Format: Audio CD
The comment of "the first incarnation" simply refers to the period before the hiatus i.e containing collected works from '85 to '89 and should therefore be treated as nothing more.
The box: A terrific package containing some fantastic music from one of the most underrated bands of the mid '80's and what's more you get the lot, the first four albums in full each packed to the hilt with lots of bonus material. The icing on the cake here of course is the fifth disc: packed full of absolute gems,including many tracks that have never appeared on CD before plus a handful of previously unreleased cuts to boot. Miniature replica's of the original art, picture CD's and a full "original credits" booklet, all this for an unbelievable price. Top marks Beggars Archive for this set and indeed the series(The Fall, Natacha Atlas, Gary Numan, Bauhaus, Buffalo Tom, The Icicle Works etc etc) Aimed at both the casual fan with a nod to the collector, very welcome additions. Don't hesitate grab it while you can.

While I own each of the albums on CD already from their original releases, the box set is nice re-packaging. Extra tracks and b-sides and remixes from the best years! The "extras" CD alone is worth $22 US dollars!

Brilliant collection of albums from the prolific post-Bauhaus sans Peter Murphy project that is Love and Rockets. Loaded with bonus tracks and beautifully handled remastering, this set properly presents the salad days of these three proper gents. Includes The Bubblemen EP, and the always entertaining fan-interview-on-tape turned into a song, "David Lanfair"

I miss a little bit more information about the albums. Well, maybe more artwork, lyrics, that kind of stuff. Anyway, what matters in here is the music and that's quite fine, of course!!!!!

This C.D. set overrules my vinyl versions. Brilliant for in-car entertainment! There are also good extra tracks on some of the albums - great value.
