Moreover, why be mad at EMI? What would have been infuriating is if they put, say, five unreleased tracks on this set. So you, all of you fans who already have these disks, would have had to ponder whether you now need to get these new disks just to get those tracks. That's a cheap marketing trick that even Steely Dan couldn't resist (putting an alternative demo take of "Everyone's Gone to the Movies" on their "Citizen Steely Dan" box set. What SD fan would need that box set, except for that one stinkin' song? And what casual fan would care that it was included?)
This is a great gift for a serious fan to give a casual fan. Or if you just got into the band via the "In Rainbows" hype and want to catch up. But if you already have all their CDs, stop being so obsessive-compulsive. You don't have to buy this. And the fact that you don't have to buy it shouldn't make you angry at its existence.
As for the music itself-- I'll get back to you. Today, I listened to "Hail to the Thief" for the first time. I liked it okay. It's uneven but the good stuff is very, very good. I'm looking forward to hearing "The Bends" next.
Yes, for fans it seems that buying this box is treason against the band, and a crime, etc... However, for someone interested in a obtaining all of the bands major releases in one purchase should not let the opportunity pass.
The only difficulty I see with a new fan & this discbox is because it contains ALL of the bands major releases from 1993 - 2003. Only a decade... but a volatile one for a band who began with "Creep" and hopped, skipped, and teleported to "Paranoid Android" in 1997 and then disintegrated to "treefingers," "in limbo," and "pulk/pull revolving doors" before emerging at the other end with "There There" in 2003.
The non-linearity of this band would certainly confuse and could just as easily put a new fan off of certain albums hearing them in such close proximity to one another. For those of us who followed the band from the beginning and spent the decade.5 listening along have certainly developed with the band in terms of understanding the music as a progression of/in form. This, of course, has currently culminated in "IN RAINBOWS".
As a closing note/thought: Be sure to locate some B-Sides (from singles) throughout the years if the box set inspires you to do so (which it will if you give it enough listens).
Good luck & generally ignore the hate from some of the fans.
