5.0 out of 5 stars Epic, Enormous, Incredible!, 8 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I loved Glasvegas' first album, it was bold and bombastic sounding and was a triumph over so many mediocre bands that exist today. Despite this it shamefully took me the past part of 2 years to get round to purchasing their second album, but boy am I glad I did! It makes the first album sound like a trial run and since buying this record everything else that's out fades into the background.... this music is huge!

I'm a fan of what most people would say is overly emotional, 'huge', 'epic' music (Godspeed You Black Emperor, Sigur Ros etc) but this is another level. Songs such as I feel Wrong (Homosexuality pt 1) and Euphoria, Take My Hand are beautifully arranged, over produced (which I love)songs which build into Euphoric, Heartbreaking pieces of music (the title says it all)

Glasvegas sound and feel like the soundtrack to the End of the World (it is on that grand a scale) and I cannot understand any negativity surrounding this album. Obviously if you do not like Spector-esque, huge sounds then this isn't for you but then again Glasvegas as a whole shouldn't be for you,

5.0 out of 5 stars WOW! Unbelievably Good!!, 13 Sept. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Before I go on to say how impressive this item is, may I recommend that Amazon block people from reviewing before the product is even released because anybody who left a negative review obviously had no idea what this box set was going to be like.

Now thats out of the way,the box set is stunningly presented in a faux leather case which is huge (seriously finding a place for it is difficult!). When you open it up it is the inside detail is phenomenal, the creators have really thought about what Harry Potter fans would like and it looks and feels like an actual prop from the film with its Hogwarts and House Team emblems right down to the handles to each draw which are metal.

Now to the actual content, spread across 4 separate draws, each film comes in a fantastically presented in a hard back photo album type case consisting of 4 or 3 disks (DVD, Blu Ray and Special Features disks for each film) depending on the film (see list contents for full breakdown), and each 'album' has full colour pics and info from the respective film. Towards the top of the box are two 'pop-out' draws which contain your Ultra-Violet code which is present in the form of a scroll tied with ribbon (this will never be opened by me as I have no idea what Ultra Violet is! But it looks good :)and the Horcrux necklace (RRP £30-40 in Harry Potter world and this one looks even better).

In the other draws are a map of Hogwarts and its grounds as well as a blue print of the castle as well as a several books about the films (again see full list of contents). The best touches though are the 'hidden disk' which is especially made for this box set and contains hours and hours of never before seen special features and the 'hidden compartment' within the case (again it shows just how big this thing is and also what detail and effort they've gone into with thing.

I can say hand on heart it is the greatest film box set I have ever seen, let alone purchased and it is honestly a snip at £180, especially considering each box comes with a numbered certificate as they're limited edition. I'm a huge HP fan but as resisted the tempation to buy any of them on DVD because I wanted them in a box set but even after over 10 years of waiting this surpasses any expectations!! If you love Harry Potter you must own this.
