Although not definitive, and missing several videos, this is a very welcome release. The first disc is exactly as before - a video transfer without any remastering (but considering that most of the promos are filmed on Super 8 doesn't cause too many problems). The second disc contains the excellent, stylish EPKs from Violator, Songs and Ultra (all promotional only) as well as four US only videos, of which only One Caress was available commercially. These single videos, although not spectaclar (indeed, actually pretty poor) are an excellent addition as they are elsewhere unavailable.
It is a shame that there was no room to complete the set with the excellent films for Clean, Halo and those for Pimpf and the Split mix of NLMDA. Perhaps these will be released on DVD in the complete forms of the Strange and Strange Too films.
If you are a dedicated dM fan, you are likely to have the tracks on CD anyway, so the sound, which is little better than the video version will not be a deciding factor. For everyone else, this is a two disc set of some of the most essential British electronic music of the last 17 years, set to provocative visuals and completed with three half hour documentaries. And beautiful packaging. Pretty good!
It gets five stars as the music and visual content is superb. However although the set could have been better, it is highly recommended. The European version also contains a computer read only Easter Egg.
