If I was just rating the music, I would give this 5 stars. If I was just rating the music and the artistic presentation of the album booklets, I would still give this 5 stars. However, like others, I was under the impression that a book would be released along side the albums explaining the connections between songs, and who is singing each one. This booklet was teased just a few weeks before this "book box set" was released. Perhaps I shouldn't have been so presumptive, but I don't think I would have bought it if I knew this book wasn't included.
Again, though, music itself gets 5 stars!
