Ignore the negative reviews for this item. I had allowed myself to be dissuaded from buying this wonderful boxed set after reading all those whingeing complaints about poor packaging, no new remastering, EMI's rip-off of the fans and so on. However, when I was able to secure a copy for around £75 (I admit that the RRP is rather steep), I realised just how misled I'd been. As a dedicated Floyd fan since the beginning of time, this is just about the most treasured item I can think of. The albums certainly ARE remastered, at least when compared to my original CD versions from the mid-80s, and it is the kind of remastering that really helps, not the overdone "everything switched to 11 on the monitor" type of remastering that you so often get these days. (Yes, Led Zeppelin and Genesis boxed sets, I mean you.)
As for the packaging, well, these replicas sleeves are an utter joy to behold. I can find none of the misaligned printing, or faulty lyrics on inner sleeves, or any of the other details that others have quibbled over. And the accompanying poster is a sheer delight. What better overview could there be of the Floyd's relationship with Hipgnosis than this?
Ignore the nay-sayers. If you can track down a discounted set, whether you already have these albums or not, I would urge you to take the Pink Floyd plunge. You won't regret it.
