I will also not go into the music on this box set as most people who are looking at this will know of mike Oldfield and there are also many good reviews for these albums over the web. I will just talk about the box itself.
The 6 albums come in a thick card box that is rather sturdy and will protect the single album cases easy. Each album comes in a rather thin card case the same as the original LP cases. These cases fold open to contain photos or artwork. The card is ok its a little thin but its one of the best for this type of packaging I have seen. Some albums have the same artwork they have since there creation and some are brand new such as incantations. Inside the cases there is either pictures of mike himself or old cover art or replicated sleeve art from the original LPs. The CDs in the box set have been re designed with general colours i.e. tubular bells is blue and QE2 is red and the disk also gives what tracks are on the disk and a small photo of the CD cover. This box set is the basic box set as it has no booklets with the albums of 1 big one about them all which I would have liked to have had but it's still worth it.
Over all the box set is nice and good for the money. I agree with what allot of people are saying even if you already have a mike Oldfield CD or 2 or have the LPs you can't use this is a good box to pick up.
