I just wanted to balance out the 1 star review by saying that my box set arrived in perfect condition. I have none of the manufacturing faults mentioned in the other review - mine is a quality, well made set. Sturdy card sleeves and thick flawless vinyl.

Not to say that there probably are some dodgy sets out there, but seeing as you can now buy this set at a vastly reduced price - take the gamble! I'm glad i did : )

I haven't gotten round to listening to all of them, however I so far do not report any scratches or off-centre pressings etc.

One complaint that another reviewer raised was the variance in playback speed varying between the records. However there is a fairly clear logic to the variance. Records with three or more tracks are at 33RPM, records with 2 tracks are at 45RPM.

Bought this for my son as he is an avid Coldplay fan although he has never used an old fashioned gramophone before and I had to teach him.

Being 7" singles, the first thing I did when getting ready to play one was to set the turntable to 45rpm. 7" singles were always cut that way - I can think of no exception. In fact 12" singles were also always cut at 45rpm - the higher linear velocity of the vinyl surface leads to better sound quality as a rule.

Some of these "singles" sound decidedly odd at 45rpm because they have been cut at 33 1/3rpm (or around 33 1/3 - there's no way to be sure). Now, just as a 12" disc at 45rpm leads to better sound quality, a 7" disc at 33 1/3rpm leads to worse sound quality and for the converse reason - very low surface speed.

There is also no indication on these "singles" which of them are intended to be played at 33 1/3 rpm and which at 45rpm.

Most have the holes slightly off centre leading to some fascinating but ultimately distracting pitch variation.

Most have the centre hole slightly too small (should be 1/4" but I suspect these are 6.25mm) so they don't fit every turntable.

Some have no centre hole at all as there is waste plastic obscuring the place where the hole should be although these may generally be opened up by pressing the disc down onto the spindle.

Most are also warped and many have moulding faults which are manifest as loud pops when the singles are played.

Altogether rather poor show.

Will be keeping them as they are said to be collectable, but not because they are much use to listen to.

I briefly owned this box set. I had a number of issues that lead to it being sent back and refunded (my box was not bought from amazon by the way.)

1) There were visible and audible scratches on some of the sides

2) A number of the sides were pressed off centre

3) The were bumps on the service of the vinyl on some sides - almost like a blister (but still black.)

4) Not all of the records held the single versions! On a singles collection, pressed on 7" single.

On top of this, one of the singles in the box I had looked like a few attempts had been made to punch the hole in different places. Also, as this is quite expensive I would advise you check the b-sides if you can do so legally before you buy to see if you will like them.

HASH(0xa1661db0) out of 5 stars I wanted this to be good! But the vinyl is CRAP!!!!! UPDATE: 14 Feb. 2012
By Jack Paschke - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Vinyl Verified Purchase
I was really looking forward to receiving this compilation. I think these songs are some of Coldplay's best work.

Unfortunately, the vinyl is simply crap. This is some of the worst pressing I have ever seen and it really disappoints me that i spent almost $100 for this.

I opened the box and all seemed fine. The artwork is beautiful and the vinyl has weight to it and it fells like it would be high quality. But i was stunned when I took the discs out. They had HUGE scratches, paper shaving, dust, dirt, and half of the peg holes were not even punched out all the way. I am extremely disappointed in the quality of what i received. 90% of the tracks are unplayable. I am seriously considering sending this back for a refund.

Update:
I decided to give this set another go and reputchased it from another seller. The second set I recieved was flawless and very high quality, ultimately it seems to come dow to how well the set was treated in distrobutuon. Give it a shot, finding an intact set is worth it.

HASH(0xa223cb58) out of 5 stars Worst pressing ever. 13 Dec. 2012
By A. Istrico - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Vinyl Verified Purchase
The quality of this pressing is so terrible, one channel on most of the records has a great deal of distortion in the high range, almost sounds like the diaphragm on my speakers was torn. This couldn't have arrived at a worse time, this boxed set arrived the day I got new cables, so I wired, rewired, changed cartridges, the whole nine. Just when I was about to curse my new cables and relatively new speakers, I checked another album, not by coldplay, onyl to find that it was just a terrible pressing.

I am so disappointed with these, DO NOT BUY.

HASH(0xa21bdf90) out of 5 stars Excellent Quality 12 Mar. 2012
By Matthew Harris - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Vinyl Verified Purchase
I was thoroughly surprised by the quality of this box set. They certainly didn't cut any corners on the packaging. The 7"s are not in flimsy little paper sleeves like most 7" vinyls. They are each in a high quality paper sleeve inside of an even sturdier cardboard sleeve. The vinyls themselves are very high quality, too. Very thick, very durable. I'm very pleased with my purchase.
