Looks like I'm the first to comment on this fantastic set!

Bought this for $40 about 2 weeks ago at the local Best Buy. Figured I still haven't heard Framing Armageddon or Crucible of Man, so why not go all out? Needless to say both albums kicked my ass. I wasn't too excited about the rest of the content like Overture of the Wicked, or the Walk Alone EP. I really like Tim Owen's vocals off Framing but the bonus disc with Barlow redoing "A Charge To Keep" was really a great treat. Now that he's moving on from the band I suppose this is all we'll ever have of him doing anything off Framing Armageddon. The live tracks were a little crackly recording-wise, but sounds like the band was in top form. Amazing how great Matt sounds live!

My favorite other item was the Framing Armageddon poster with ol' Set Abominae, which actually was the main selling point of me getting this instead of the other two Something Wicked albums separately. I also was fond of the bonus liner note booklet. That a keen addition.

All in all I'm pleased and thought it was $40 well spent. What would I have changed? Perhaps leave out the Walk Alone EP and Overture, and instead include a miniature working hourglass replica like the one on the cover. Of course that may have bumped the price up a tad more...cheers!
