Sound: The sound is as one would expect when it comes to the Misfits. More often then not primal screams over distorted guitars. The sound is load and fast with most of songs under the 3 minute mark. The first disc contains Collection I & II on it. The second disc contains Legaco Of Brutality, Evilive, & Earth A.D. on it. They recordings are the same as the individual releases of those CDs. On the third disc is where the good stuff is at. For the first time numerous unreleased tacks on Misfit classic are released. The third disc contains tacks from various sessions; and the forth contains Static Age. // 8

Lyrics: Well there's not much to say here; the Boxset showcases The Misfits B-movie induced lyrical content. If you've heard The Misfits before you know what you're getting. Glenns vocals complement the band's sound great. If you're a casual fan the songs can sound repetitive at times. // 7

Overall Impression: The packaging is really cool. The contents are packaged in a velvet lined coffen. The booklet contains rare photos, a four page article about the Misfits, lyrics for every song, and an in-depth discography of every Misfits vinyl. It states original release date, vinyl color, amount pressed, package contents, and variations. Boxset also includes a Misfits fiend club pin. Overall this is for die hard Misfits fans only. Unless you have to have the previously unreleased tracks, you could save yourself some money and buy the individual CDs. // 8
