This limited edition collectible U2 Deluxe Edition boxset is handsomely constructed in a sturdy hardbound shell, measuring 5 3/4" (width) x 2 3/4" (spine width) x 5 7/16" (tall) and comes with the newly remastered and expanded 2 CD deluxe editions of the bands first three albums BOY, OCTOBER and WAR, plus room for a fourth (not included). Re-mastered from the original audio tapes, each deluxe includes a disc of b-sides, live tracks and rarities, and the packaging on all three titles has been restored and expanded, with new liner notes for each record, previously unseen photos and full lyrics.
This set also comes with a limited edition, exclusive 18'x24' full color replica poster from the bands beginnings, recreated just for this boxset.
U2s first three albums--Boy, October, and War--receive star treatment with these re-mastered versions, just as their legendary The Joshua Tree record did last year. Every album includes a second disc of b-side remixes, live versions, and rare performances that die-hard fans of the Irish band will surely appreciate. The box also has room for a fourth album (we assume its for The Joshua Tree), but we cant help to think that theyll come out with a second Deluxe Edition Box Set next year, with even better albums from the bands vast musical catalog. --Ernesto Sánchez (People en Español )Los tres primeros discos de U2--Boy, October, and War--reciben el tratamiento de lujo en versiones remasterizadas, justo como el año pasado sucedió con su legendario The Joshua Tree. Cada título incluye un segundo disco de lados-b, remixes, versiones en vivo y rarezas que sólo y exclusivamente los fanáticos de la banda irlandesa podrán apreciar. La caja tiene espacio para un cuarto álbum (suponemos que para poner The Joshua Tree), pero desafortunadamente no podemos dejar de pensar en que se trata en una simple estrategia de la disquera, y que el segundo Deluxe Edition Box Set saldrá el siguiente año, con mejores álbumes del grupo. --Ernesto Sánchez (People en Español )

Seriously though, I'm a pretty busy guy, so I haven't listened to the remastered original disks. But I have listened to the bonus cds. They were pretty good, not amazing, but pretty good (and heck, they're a bonus).
Really though, if you aren't sure if you should buy this box set, it isn't too hard. If you like U2, then why wouldn't you buy it? I never purchased the original releases of these cds, so it made perfect sense for me to do it. If you aren't sure if you like U2 or not, listen to them and find out.
I bought the remastered Joshua Tree Special Edition, I bought this remastered Box Set, and I definitely plan on buying the remastered set of the rest of their albums that are released.
The total package is very well done, and it's amazing to have those b-sides,remixes and demos in such great sound.
Bravo to the Edge/U2/record company for a great set for the fans.
