Yeah, I'm absolutely going for the big set, it's such a fascinating piece about how the entire thing began and ended up as a final album. Have to wait a little until I can afford it in a few days.
The album itself is pretty good, there's some really interesting pieces throughout. A really great combination of his more modern albums with opera and his old with a lot of interesting synth sounds and what not.
I wouldn't put it anywhere near his top, but it's really enjoyable overall!

Edit: Ordered the boxset and now the waiting game begins for whenever they'll actually deliver it. It's still not out, so curious when they'll get around to releasing it!

Somewhat "comforting" but mostly hilarious that these cash-in compilations still get made ;)

(Really should get around to listening to the latest album too, for that matter)

Wow, that's a useless compilation if I ever saw one.

Seems like the typical RCA collection if anything :lol:
And if you're talking about Juno to Jupiter, absolutely try it. It's an absolutely terrific album from start to finish!

I received mine in the post today, absolutely amazing looking package. If you have the CD version with the booklet, it's (from what I recall) the exact same, but printed in a wonderful large format. Also, the bookmark is signed with a little drawing on it. Such a shame it's probably one of the last things the man has done, would've loved it if he went on for much longer, but alas.
