Boxset Tuesday

What’s better than receiving that boxset that you have been waiting for since mid 2012. Two different boxsets that you have pre-ordered arriving on the same day 😀

That is was has happened today

I hereby welcome Biffy Clyro and Soundgarden’s latest offerings into my collection.

So what’s in the box….

Soundgarden:

Pretty standard contents here I’m afraid (let’s not worry about the price).

Both the vinyl (2x180gram audiophile) and CD edition of the album – with a bonus DVD.

Also, thrown in is the obligatory “art cards” and 12″ version of the CD inlay.

Biffy Clyro:

Now, if it is one thing we already know (following the highly impressive Only Revolutions boxset) – and that is that Biffy put the effort into their special editions, and the haven’t let us down.

Nicely packed in this set you get..

Both the Vinyl (2x180gram audiophile, individually stored in the own sleeves) and the double CD/DVD versions of the album are in here together with…

– Guitar tab for the album
– Lyric book for the album
– Piece of art and film clipping from the album sleeve shoot – I got a leaf, not sure if it is the same for everyone.
