"When I discovered "Space Box" at amazon.com I had two completely opposite reviews staring me in the face. One said it was garbage and the other said it was great. I decided to take a chance, since it was priced so economically. Boy, am I glad I did! If you like such artists as Helios Creed, Cluster, Chrome, Hawkwind and Faust, snag this one right now. Listen to these CD's a couple of times and you're liable to find yourself dialing up a few of your old friends in search of a handful of tabs! Get out your synchro-energizer and let the likes of Guru Guru and Amon Duul II take you on a little departure from our world. Actually, better make that a little departure from our galaxy! So, you ask, do I like "Space Box"? Get real. I don't like it. I love it! If you don't scarf up this set now, don't come crying to me later about how you have to shell out $50 to get it from some used CD store. I'll only say "I told you so"."
A little cheesy, i'm sure you'd agree.

"While some material on this cd is quite good (Hawkwind, Cluster, Harmonia, the older stuff) the tracks by most of the newer bands are just plain silly, uninventive shlock that makes for filler. Try a Faust or Can album, or some Fripp/Eno stuff before wasting time on this one. The worst part is that the box is so cheesy, not to mention the typos (the worst being the exclusion of song 6 on cd 2 in the track listing -- come on, cleopatra, don't you hire someone to check these things?)"
Holy Ned this one is Great!

"I had only heard of a few of these bands even though I've listened to a lot of progressive rock over the years. And lately "Krautrock" has started to become a bit of a thing on my wonderful local radio station so I decided to take a chance and get this CD to start delving deeper into the European rock world. Let me just say there isn't a bad moment on this 3 CD compilation. And the selection & order of the tracks is particularly well done. This is one 3 CD set I can actually listen to straight through. There's enough variety to avoid tedium or monotony. It's kind of like listening to a 3+ hour radio show by your most knowledgable college DJ with a seriously obscure record collection. One day I hope to own at least a few of the CD's these tracks were culled from. Great purchase. Great Price. Great music. One ommision would be some Magma but you can find that on the Net easily nowadays. Bong hits all around, Dude."
