I own two vinyl box sets -- Atheist and Ulver. Atheist is the only way to get Elements on black vinyl and Ulver is the only way to get albums 1 and 2 on vinyl whatsoever. I also own a Motorhead CD box set.

Box sets are usually fragile (I don't own the box for Ulver, as the ones that came into the USA did not survive transit), and are a pain in the ass to store. They often contain less packaging than if you bought the albums separately (Atheist), picture LPs (Ulver), and stuff that is unreleased at the time of the box set but later becomes easy to obtain. In the case Motorhead, there were little snippets of various BBC sessions in the box set. A year or two later, you can buy the ENTIRE sessions as their own release. This is aggravating when one is an audio-completist but not a release-completist.

I don't hate them, I'm just not interested in hardly any of them. Similar to splits.

i own several boxed sets and i enjoy them. they're not the be-all and end all, just cool shit to have. i have the albert ayler and mystifier boxed sets sitting next to each other on the shelf . . .

if you want to see fucking DIEHARD, check out that Ayler box: it comes in this weird moulded plastic "spirit box" that looks like some voodoo ass wooden thing with a hardbound book, a ton of cds in these crazy vellum sleeves and a weird little envelope with a picture and some kind of strange/symbolic dried flower. it's brutal as fuck (if you like saxophones)

it's back in oakland, right now (i'm living in brooklyn these days) . . . but, yeah, it's got about 8 million versions of "ghosts", of course. if you look around on the net, you can find info about it pretty easily. they made way too many of them too, so you can get them cheap now.

Ah... I wish I had that Ulver box. Unfortunately I can't afford the fucking $500 that it normally goes for.

I hate those boxsets. They should release or rerelease every album (like the first two Ulver albums, etc..) particular with a decent design on black vinyl and not with this picture disc shit.

The entire SIGH discog would be killer. Though I am sure those impending DArk Symphonies LPs will trump any box he he.

He's got 5 Sigh LP sets lined up so far, he's pretty much the source for all Sigh related vinyl.

** Raises Hand **

I prefer the experience of coming across a band I really like and following their progress, anticipating their new releases at the time.

Of course it's great to hear unreleased material in a boxset but hey let's face it, that unreleased material is quite often not that great anyway - hence it wasn't released the first time around.
