[…] This is interesting, because although the set is being marketed as a super deluxe edition, it is smaller and cheaper than ‘standard’ SDE sets (around £45 in the UK). It’s actually a lovely size. Just short of ten inches square, it’s easy to hold in your hands, but weighty enough to feel substantial. The sturdy outer slipcase has good artwork reproduction and feels very well made. Inside resides an 84-page hard back book (“the words”); a red disc wallet for the CDs and DVD (“the music”); a large reproduction of a Mystify poster; and a sticker sheet. Extensive photos can be found here. […]

Having listened to this boxset (it arrived last friday), the content on the CDs is disappointing. Whilst CD2 mirrors the tracks from the 2 CD deluxe edition from a few years back (with the addition of an alternative version of move on and a different running order), I just think it could have been better. All the mixes could have been put on the same disc, with the outtakes / live tracks on the other, but why could they not have included more live tracks? Of the unheard tracks, Never Tear Us Apart (Soul version), is an ok listen but not a patch on the original, and the remix of Calling all Nations looks like a 2012 remix, rather than one unreleased at the time. I think a Kick era live album would have been nice, not just a repackaging of the previous deluxe version. The book is good, but the card CD “wallet” has put faint scratches on all the discs, so I’m not impressed with it. I have not got round to watching the DVD yet and will post an update once I do, but it appears some of the promo videos are missing. Why? There is only one mix of Different World (with the 12″ mix missing) but CD3 just feels slight, with only 7 tracks on it. Looking forward to the 30th anniversary Super Duper Deluxe Edition :-)

Interesting that the vintage “Mystify” poster lists some remixes that were, sadly, not included on the 25th anniversary set… :(

Looking forward to the full review. Thanks for sharing the pics to whet my appetite–gotta say, this box looks pretty darn good!
