Compare the NOTW boxset with the announced Metallica Master Of Puppets boxset. Do i need to say more?

Sure. If something is missing then maybe it will get re-released in ever expanding fashion down the road!

It is News of the World expanded NO super deluxe.

They try to include all the official stuff which have been released about NOTW. It is obvious on the 3rd CD.

Queen will never give us many concerts or riff ideas. In my opinion Metallica release is great for the ultra fanatics not for average fan or buyer.

When Rainbow, let me in your heart again and On Air even in their simpliest editions didn't sell well, don't excpect super deluxe releases.

What the hell is the point of doing such a big, expensive set if you're just going to release better stuff a little later? This was supposed to be the big kahuna.

For the price they're asking, the News of the World set isn't for the average buyer either, which is why including a whole bunch of stuff we already have is such a piss-take.

I agree about the price.

My Whitesnake box set arrived at the weekend, and it's a great little package.

Looks smart.

Ah, old Whitesnake...takes me back; Here I Go Again used to get blasted from my speakers on a very regular basis back in the day.

Yeah, it's a good set, and a bit of a steal at £35 (although that doesn't include the vinyl in the above picture).

Surprisingly, despite this being the most successful album they ever did, they never actually pro-recorded any of the gigs from the supporting tour, so the new live disc is actually a bootleg that they've cleaned up as much as they can. Bit of a shame, but it still sounds pretty good, and is hell of a lot better than some bodge-job containing snippets from completely unrelated and already available live albums :P
