It looks like this box is going to be at least as expensive as the other one, even though there are only four albums in this one.
Anyone else feel this is kind of strange?
If I had known this before I bought the first boxset I probably would not have gone for the boxset releases.

I hope there will be some more extra's or a change in pricing closer to its actual release.

I am going to wait and see on how the prices are handled here in the states. When the first box came out prices were all over the place and then some stores on the web came down so I am assuming the same will happen with this box.

Actually, a load of stuff including lots of extras are included, notably a (double) bonus disc.

Thanks for updating that.

So far the best local results I can find for this are US$159 for either the NTCS or PAL versions.

NTSC - http://store.acousticsounds.com/browse_detail.cfm?Title_ID=40194
PAL - http://store.acousticsounds.com/browse_detail.cfm?title_ID=40195

HMV Japan has it for US$148 but you have to buy two other import CD's, SACD's or DVD-A's to get that price.

I have pre-ordered from Acoustic Sounds.

For European buyers JPC seems to be really cheap this time.
Just placed the order for 89,99+5,99 for shipping. That's more than 50 euro's cheaper than amazon.co.uk

I already listened to all the discs. In constrast to the first box, I now like the sound of it. I think EMI heard our complaints.
Great sound, great multi channel mix.

It better have much improved sound! The first set was atrocious. They should have been ashamed of themselves.
