Nice review. Even if I’m a big Underworld fan, I think it’s their weakest box set at the moment.

Cheers!

Re: Beaucoup Fish - 4 CD Remastered Deluxe Box Set (8/25/2017)
So, my box set arrived and now I can read all the comments here in one go, and relate to them. First impressions is that its very similar to the DRIFT box, but with half the discs and absolutely nothing of value in the book. I'm aware of the criticism of the tracklisting and last of blue mountain, 5 points, cappe ffuno, anti-rom etc. Did anyone buy the 24bit downloads and check out the Italian KOS mixes?

BTW, the price on Amazon has gone up, but its still floating at the €36 mark.

considering that BF was my first UW album, it would've been easy to have fallen completely into this, but having had the box for awhile now i half want to forget about it. one positive is that the price might reduce enough so i can buy a second copy and frame some individual book pages though.

What about them? They're still sourced from bad MP3 rips from vinyl. The best source for those tracks is still the the original Italian CD.

Shame that they sourced from MP3, what a weird thing to do.

I can't believe they did this box so poorly.. The first tow were amazing, and there is soooo much they could have added instead of the remix cd's. I love this album, but it didn't really need a remaster, it needed more and better content surrounding the album.
