"Ive had this collection for about 5 months. I listen to this instead of the regular CD's. Its amazing how good they sound raw in the studio. For literal demos, they sound incredible. Most bands wouldnt reveal themselves like this. One can really follow their creativity, and how the songs evolve. I'll go along with the previous review for the content. This is a pricey collection for the hardcore fan if you can find it.
Also look for the collection RARE CULT. It has 7 CD's and is equally hard to find. Also fantastic with never before released songs."
More to add to that huge Cult Box Set

"I had to get this because I'm crazy about The Cult and all the changes that they've gone through over the years. Five more reels that were found by guitar-guru-soulman Billy Duffy after the main Box Set was released are found here. There are 77 tracks from '86 to '91 that are basic, rudimentary outlines of some killer songs. What I love about this set is it's a deeper look into the awesome duo of Astbury/Duffy. The first set is a collection of songs done around the time of the Manor sessions, before the Cult teamed up with Rick Rubin. The Second Set was recorded during the Sonic Temple period while the Third Set consists of Ceremony tunes in the making. All these songs are found elsewhere in The Cult universe, but these tracks have a voice of their own. Any Cult fan who wants a microscopic view of The Cult during these energetic, spiritual and chaotic times in a classic Rock n Roll band, will truly appreciate this."
