This set contains the five albums (4 Studio albums: Feline,Aural Sculpture,Dreamtime and 10, plus the live album All Live & All Of The Night) from the Stranglers Epic period, each in a mini replica of the original album cover (except no gatefold for 'All Live'). There are no extra tracks, inner sleeves etc... (otherwise this would've got five stars) but if you've not got these yet on CD this is a real bargain.

The set starts with the brilliant 'Midnight Summer Dream' (and the album version is so much better than the seven inch edit) and continues with most of the albums containing a couple of hits plus even better tracks which weren't singles, such as the closing track on 10 'Never to Look Back'.
There's also the corking live album 'All Live & All Of The Night' containg a dozen live tracks spanning their career to-date (in 1987), including a rip through 'Down in the Sewer' which is even better than the original version off 'Rattus Norvegicus'.

If you've got the money you could buy the seperate CDs with their bonus tracks (drawn from the b-sides of the singles); but if you can't afford them, this set gives you 5 albums, 53 tracks (including 8 hit singles) all for less than a score; really, you can't go wrong at that price.

This is great value if you want to dip into some less hedonistic "Stranglers fare".
Rattus and Raven are still my favourite albums of the Stranglers, but there are a good number of "hidden gems" on these, if you give them the time.
Bought this over a year ago for c. £12.00. Had all bar the live album on vinyl.
Spain is one of my alltime fave Stranglers travelogues - also see Clouds(BlackandWhite), Bear Cage, Big in a merry cur,and numerous others).
If you want more besides there are other options over the UA and later years, and at (in my opinion) criminally GOOD value on line.
Understand the band are great live. Will check them out as soon as possible.
I have been miserly on the stars for the inclusion of 10 which I would rate as a 3 out of 5 - the rest -Feline,the live album and Dreamtime are 4.8 out of 5. Aural Sculpture just below my absolute faves at 5.5 out of 5.
