5.0 out of 5 stars 11 studio albums - not a singles collection!, 4 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Complete Studio Albums [1983-2008] (Audio CD)
Please don't be put off by the rather mixed reviews this set has got - it is exactly what it says on the box! You get 11 studio albums - no compilations, no soundtrack albums or other miscellaneous releases; if you want those too they are easy to come by, and the Immaculate Collection of the classic early singles is really cheap these days!

This set offers a really inexpensive way of getting a large part of the soundtrack to our lives, and is an ideal way to get it in a no-frills package. Read Mike Diver's review in the Product Description for a good idea of what this set is all about. I already had quite a bit of the material featured but Amazon offered the set as a Lightning Deal and the price tempted me for the material I didn't already have. Having now seen it I would say that the set represents excellent value - and even at Amazons regular price it works out at less than two quid an album. I don't think you could expect much more!

Sure, the record company could have gone to town and added lots of extras for the die-hard fans, but then the set would have cost two or three times as much and would not have had the appeal to the more casual listener. Madonna has never been one to ignore her fans and many of her releases have been issued in a variety of packages for the collector - this isn't one of them! Buy it for what it is - not what it could have been. Anything less than five stars for what you get for the price is bizarre and illogical!!
