Found it on one site for £85. For that I'd expect it delivered on a pure golden platter by the band themselves. as they fly to my house on a herd of dragons (herd is probably the wrong word there).

i wonder how much cds cost in your country...because for me such price for 15 cds is more than awesome - single new cd in my country cost like 2x - 3x more than those (when you divide the price by 15)

85 quid is cheap for a 15 CD box, no matter where you are. 85 quid is just under 6 per cd.

I think I will get this. I'm not a huge fan I would say but I really enjoy the albums I have heard so far. And as a fan of power metal in general this is like must have in the collection.

If I didn't have most of them already, this is a bargain. The collective noun for dragons is either a flight or a wing.

The remixes are sounding great, and this'd be nice to have since the only of their albums that I actually own is NIME. 85 quid is about 135 dollars. I wonder how much my kidney is worth.

Less coherent than Anal Cunt.

I already have all the studio albums, will the remixed albums really make that much of an improvement, id be intrigued to hear their early work re-done. The 2012 version of "Valhalla" was great.

What is "An Extraordinary Tale"? I've never heard of that album...

All these remasters sound great! Especially the ones from Somewhere Far Beyond!

um worthless.

On these previews, well, they sound great. I got my option open as 85 quid not to much for me to be honest.

...completely agree. It was more than enough with Memories of a time to come.

I love how some unheard instrumentations shine through the mix. but this still sounds compressed compared to the originals. ANATO material, mostly.
