5.0 out of 5 stars Just the bare bones here...still 5 stars, 7 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Inception (10cd Box Set) (Audio CD)
OK. No frills with this box, none.

Info is scarce. There are absolutely no liner notes, dates, remastering info, nothing but the track listing, period. After going over each cd, mini-lp sleeves, slip-box and whatever, the ONLY date given is the release date of this edition...2013. That's it!

10 cds housed in a sturdy (as these things go) slip-box. Each album is in a relatively thick min-lp sleeve. Album cover reproduction on main side (good), colorful track listing on obverse (same as what's on slip-cover box.

Though packaged with a bit more artsy flair, info content is similar (or less) than whats on those 5cd 'Original Album Series' boxes. Not as detailed as the current Beggar's Banquet 5cd sets (Love and Rockets, Gene Loves Jezebel, Bauhaus, etc) where liner notes, bonus stuff and remastering add a classy touch.

Remember, this is a 10cd span, Crematory deserve some data, any data to give better reference to the music.
The music is great however, with an unusual mix of death and gothic metal that only Crematory can do. Audio quality sounds great. Not sure how this edition measures up to the individual releases though.

With no bonus stuff the cds do not fill the cd platter as much as I would like:

cd1...42:20 Transmigration (1993)
cd2...44:50 ...Just Dreaming (1994)
cd3...54:44 Illusions (1995)
cd4...45:13 Crematory (1996)
cd5...45:27 Awake (1997)
cd6...49:35 Act Seven (1999)
cd7...54:34 Believe (2000)
cd8...46:42 Revolution (2004)
cd9...50:50 Klagebilder (2006)
cd10...48:42 Pray (2008)

Bottomline: this is probably the best box you'll see put out on Crematory's major output. For a 10cd set it just falls short of a full 5 stars.
