CD layer sounds muffled and Gergiev's interpretation of Mahler is very limited. There is far better Mahler out there.

Lovely spacious sound, played with precision and feeling. Once again a real MP3 bargain.The drama, tension and romance are all apparent. The symphonies come across with great vigour, but also moments of considerable tenderness. Don't miss Mahler's "world of music" if you are not already in it!

It's hard to get all this music ideally recorded in one box, and I don't think it's ever been achieved. The playing is fine however, and interpretation is a subjective issue (after all, it's very easy to get used to a favourite recording). The recordings seem rather distant to me, as I have previously enjoyed many LSO live recordings, e.g. Sibelius & Dvorak symphonies, various Berlioz, etc.).
In summary, at the moment I feel that some of the symphonies fare better than others but a) I need to spend more time with them; and b) they still represent good value for money and you certainly shouldn't discount getting hold of them.

More Mahler on here than you will probably ever need in a lifetime. Well played and well recorded, but not something to have on in the background. This is no lift music - you have to actually listen to it. Will probably be able to give a better, more comprehensive review of this in about ten years time. In the meantime, glad I bought it.
