5.0 out of 5 stars Class is permament, 19 July 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I must agree with everything the previous reviewer says. I too have followed the band from the very start. This box set brings back so many memories of seeing the band live all across the U.K. and what a great band they were. The only track not on here that i feel should be on is "thats it i quit" from be seeing you. The other thing i would like is for grand records to reissue the albums "doctors orders, "fast women slow horses", "a case of the shakes" & "mad man blues" all cd's i have but for various reasons will not play.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good overview but ..., 23 Jun. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Excellent early career overview of suzi's early career. The production is also well done. However i must deduct one star due to the utter abomination that is the cover of Steve harleys Make me smile. If you can't do justice to a song then leave it alone ! The cover of the song is at best a by the numbers run through and is sung with no passion or feeling. A worthwile compilation.

This excellent cd is my favourite depeche mode album by a country mile.considering what the band were going through at the time, this is truly an exceptional offering. Excellent production and not a weak track on here. Highly recomended.

2.0 out of 5 stars Poor. Avoid at all costs., 19 April 2017

This review is from: Sounds Of The Universe (Audio CD)
I have recently decided to catch up on all of the depeche mode albums that i had never heard. This cd is, in my opinion the weakest of all the bands output. There are no strong songs on here. Everything on here is just very weak and poor. Even the production is lacking. If you want to hear the band at their peak listen to "ultra" or "delta machine"

5.0 out of 5 stars Big country at the peak of their powers., 14 April 2017

Excellent album possibly one of the bands best. Such a shame that some fans had given up on the band before this offering and therefore it didn't get the exposure it deserved. Some brilliant songs on here including "long way home" "we're not in kansas" & "the selling of america" get this cd at all costs.

O.K album. Not a patch on the next offering "The story of a young heart" I have also deducted stars due to Amazon have only downloaded the original album(10 tracks) to my phone. I have not had the bonus tracks.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good set,but production quality lacking., 3 April 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Firstly, at the price paid this 3cd set is good value. Also there is a good selection of tracks through joan armatradings career. My complaint is that the tracks have just been lumped together with little or no care. The whole set really feels very disjointed mainly because as the tracks are taken from different sources and years the production and sound quality is very mixed -varying from good to poor.

5.0 out of 5 stars A genius, A sad loss to music., 14 Mar. 2017
This review is for the "last of the teenage idols"-the highlights. Listening to this collection is a real pleasure for many reasons, mainly for the remastering/sound quality and the track listing. Personally i found the only disapointment with the sound was the tracks from the "Live" album- they sounded a bit bass heavy. But that is only a personal opinion. Personally i would also have liked a couple more tracks off "The mafia stole my guitar" & "The soldier on the wall" But to do that what do you leave off to make room? This collection is highly recomended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great band. Excellent box set., 2 Mar. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Excellent value box set. There are six great albums included and one which is poor in comparison,that one been unusual heat.That is also the only album without Lou Gramm as vocalist.My only other quible is the track list/running order on the back of agent provocateur is wrong,whereas the record company have the correct running order on the back of the box.highly recomended.

5.0 out of 5 stars A genius at work., 23 Feb. 2017

Excellent career over view of Steve harleys career up until the cd "quality of mercy" As a long term fan of the great man i can see no weak track on here. Purely as a personal choice however i would have replaced "spaced out" & "big big deal" on disc 1 with "cavaliers" off psychomodo.I would also have swapped the studio version of "best years of our lives" on disc 2 for the live version, but hey this is only my personal choice. This set is worth buying for "a friend for life what a great song with lovely lyrics." Highly recomended.
