This boxed set has two audio CDs, and a live concert DVD. The first disc is primarily live versions from their newer albums, Matter and Form and Judgement. The second disc has a few more live versions and some previously unreleased material.

If you're a fan of VNV Nation, you'll like this set. I enjoy their live versions, and this edition doesn't disappoint. Ronan Harris also provides some liner notes in this inexpensive yet elgantly designed and produced set.

If you're new to VNV, I'd strongly suggest Empires or FuturePerfect or Judgement first. Like most live versions, it's best to be a fan and already familiar with the music to appreciate the "theme and variations".

The limited edition of the Reformation 01 box set by VNV Nation is a real bargain. For little more than the price of a regular album CD you get 2 Cd's and a video DVD with 8 tracks recorded at live concerts in Europe (mostly Hamburg, Germany).

I also like to remark that the box set includes the first ever LIVE ALBUM by VNV Nation, so fans who prefer VNV Nation live over the studio recordings do not have to fall back on the not 100% legitimate Live album solution by ripping the audio tracks of the previously released Pastperfect Live DVD :). Vnv Nation - Pastperfect Limited Edition

CD 2 of the set includes in addition to various remixes of known songs also some new material, which was previously unreleased.

Last but not least some comments about the box set itself. It's of high quality, compared to other box sets by other bands that I have seen myself in the past. It also contains a thick booklet that wouldn't fit into a regular CD case. The only bummer here is that the booklet is glued to the box set and thus hard to read in comfort because of the 3 discs next to it (when you unfold the whole set).

I almost forgot: You can get a good idea about the quality of the box set by looking at the large version of the product image that was provided by Amazon. Use the zoom feature to get a real close look at the material and the "engraved" VNV Nation logo. That's why is the cover so dark, because it isn't printed color. You can feel it (if you bought it :))

If you love VNV NATION then this boxset will not dissapoint you! This is a really good boxset that is way worth the price! 12 LIVE tracks along with 13 remixes and unreleased material.

Overall I would give this a 4.5 / 5. really worth it.

I love live tracks and also the DVD. However im not that really into remixes so i got it for the unreleased tracks "Still waters" "Suffer" and "Precipice" as well as the tracks from Gene Generation.

This is a solid boxset while we wait for "Of faith power and glory"

All it really took was a listen to the preview of 'Joy' from the live disc in this incredibly good collection. I have always been a big fan of live albums, for me it's the real test of any band. The question I always ask myself is, Can this band not only perform with all the precision and punch of their studio
release, but (more importantly)can they also add that live element to the songs
that change them into something...more?
Let me tell you, if you've only heard VNV's studio work, you really haven't got the whole picture. There are also so very few electronic-based acts that can measure up to this intense of a live show. VNV doesn't fall into the classic trap of letting the audience just zone out to the electro-soundscape. Ronan Harris will not let the audience fail to pay attention (as if they even could) and does a great job of drawing the audience in even further. Best of all, he is not lacking in sincerity so when he speaks...you know he absolutely means it to go to the heart of every single person in earshot.
The dvd is also a great look at them in action, although curiously, I just didn't need it to know how good they'd be after just hearing the live disc. It also could have been longer, but I'm not complaining one bit.
There's also the disc of remixes, of which many aren't available anywhere but here. They are definitely worth having, and some are really, really excellent, (Carry You (frozen plasma remix), Suffer, Precipice...don't pass these up!)
But as stated before, the live set is the real treat here. I'd list the highlights as Joy, Testament, Nemesis, and the incomparable 'Honour 2003' live version is one of my favorite songs from any band, ever.

I have been anticipating the release of this box set ever since the day that it was announced. When I finally received it, I was blown away. If you are a fan of VNV Nation, or any other "Futurepop" electronic music, BUY THIS IMMEDIATELY. It is in short supply, and copies are selling fast. Here's why:

1 It's a Limited Release, with only 9000 copies distributed to the U.S.
2 There are unreleased tracks and rare remixes never heard before
3 It's VNV Nation
4 The quality of the case itself is superb
5 Two cd's, and a live dvd for 20 dollars
6 It's VNV Nation

I have heard almost everything that VNV Nation has released, and the unreleased/rare/remix cd that came with this box set blew me away, proving that VNV Nation only gets better and better. In particular, the remix of "Carry You" from the album Judgement, "Suffer", and "Still Waters" were some of the noteworthy tracks that caught my ear. The live song "Honour 2003" BLEW MY MIND.

In short, for the price it is unbeatable. There are some extensive musings of the band's front man Ronan Harris in the booklet which shed new light on the purpose and meanings behind some of the songs, as well as some insight on his reasoning behind particular albums such as Praise The Fallen and Judgement.

A must have for all fans of EBM, Futurepop, and electronica. Great music, a high quality live dvd, and an insignificant price make this a supreme addition to any music collection.
