Where and what :? ? Link ?

It's on the Official NOTW40 website. I have to say if the time and effort that has gone into this and the All Dead All Dead video was replicated in the contents of the box set we'd all be happy!!
http://notw40.queenonline.com


Wow, thanks for that one! That was a pretty fascinating unboxing video, a piece of art in itself! :-D
The book looks stunning.



All the smashed-up concrete and twisted iron obviously simulates the inner sleeve and back of the LP cover, where the robot destroyed the roof of a concert hall.

I like the little snippet we heard from raw S Y Wings. :cool:

I think it looked a little cheap to be honest. Shame, because it could have looked epic. Not a bad little promo though.

I am too - particularly after the expensive disgrace of the Automatic For The People box set last Friday. people moaning about this one should try that one for rip off content! :(

Unfortunately I’m away on business Thursday / Friday and wont be back until late Friday night. However, will be nice to arrive back to this set (after saying hello to the kids of course. Gotta get the priorities right) :)

I think the R.E.M. box is a better set hands down. It doesn't come with a vinyl copy but it does have a blue-ray. I just purchased it on iTunes for $25 and I'm happy with it.

:lol: One of my all time favorite bands. Can't say I liked much after Automatic For the people though.

Don’t wanna go too off topic but......

The 5.1 mix is terrible - no where near as good as the DVD-A already out there.
The demos are pretty boring to be honest. Not really one for REM demos - tend to be endless repeats of a chord structure with Stipe humming the approximate melody over the top.
The live gig I have on a better quality bootleg and there’s much missing.
The essay in the book is just.....nothing. Short and completely anodyne.

I love REM and have all their 25th anniversary sets. This is by far the worst. And overpriced.

Mine arrived at work a few hours ago...feels and looks a good weight and size. This is a Christmas present from the wife so will stay in the brown box until the 25th.
The days of getting mega excited and unable to wait for such releases are long gone as i get older. However i am sure i will enjoy the contents even though i will still stand by the fact it was a missed opportunity to have included a live set and blue ray.
If a separate released live package of this era follows i will be even happier.

Next up...Live Killers ( hopefully )

My set is on the way too! I did however receive the Limited Edition NOTW Picture Disc today. It really is a lovely product but then again I love these sort of Ltd Edition. I got No133 and interestingly it was manufactured in Germany as were the coloured vinyls in the Studio Collection.

I wonder if a deluxe box set could be produced incorporating both Jazz and Live Killers, now that has potential!! :-D
