With total sales exceeding 10 million albums and DVDs worldwide, Dream Theater have long stood among the upper echelon of hard rock giants. Albums such as 1992 s RIAA gold-certified classic Images & Words (featuring the breakthrough top 10 single, "Pull Me Under") and 2002 s double album, Six Degrees of Inner Turbulance have earned the Long Island-based band countless accolades for their visionary synthesis of melodic power and virtuosic experimentation, including being named as one of Rolling Stone s top 10 "Best Prog Rock Bands of All Time."

The downside: this is a small, CD sized cardboard box. There is nothing fancy about it. The back lists all the albums and their track listings, and the front has small thumbnail images of each album.
Inside, each CD is contained in a cardboard sleeve. The sleeve has the album artwork that appeared on the front an back of each album, but nothing else. There are no lyrics or liner notes included. You get a CD, a cardboard sleeve, and a cardboard box to keep them in. That's all.
It's a very good deal if you are only interested in the CDs, but it's too bare bones to be of any interest to collectors.
Listening to Awake (1994) right now with my Motorheadphones as they give the music a very clear sound to the ear. Very good box set, again with basically a cardboard sleeve and the CD itself, It's all you need! For $50, why not?! Enjoy these albums!
I'm wondering if these albums have been secretly remastered or enhanced for better sound quality?!
Although, I have ripped all of them into MP3 format, I am not a huge fan of MP3s. It is nice to be able to carry around all of that music on my phone, but I can always hear that digital "wobble" or whatever it is called in the MP3s. I like to listen to the uncompressed CD in car or at home.
So, this seemed a good opportunity to replace the library without breaking the bank. It is true that these are in just cardboard sleeves and the CDs themselves lose the graphics printed on them. However, that to me is pointless as once they are in the player, I could care less what it looks like.
The only things missing from this box set is the latest self titled CD, When Dream and Day Unite, and Change of Seasons. I realize Change of Seasons was an EP, but it was good enough that is should be considered a full release all by itself and I think it is an essential CD for any DT collection.
