Despite being a massive fan, and having most of the others, I won't bother.

I know I will only play it once.

I didn't like the Steven Wilson mix last time around - some of the necessary murkiness had gone - Inside etc) - which was a shame and the live tracks Dharma/Kind Permission I can do without

I'll pass

If we get as far as a top 100, I'd certainly consider it

Like some others I’ve given up buying these extended sets, knowing that I might only listen to the extras once, if that, however if it was going for a tenner I might be tempted.

Lovely album though.

It's the same 5.1 mix as last time, but there is a new live show with a 5.1 mix.

Indeed plus the video of the Tanglewood show on DVD. Some of the original Wilson remix box sets are hard to find now, the Warchild set for instance is impossible to find.

Got 'em all. You can find them on Discogs for silly money, of course.

The previous Wilson sets are selling for £160+ on eBay.

The completed / sold filters on eBay.co.uk certainly showed Minstrel and Songs From The Wood recently sold at £160 approximately.

Maybe the lesser albums aren’t sold out. Or people are assuming they are and they’re not sold out.
