I received my copy yesterday. Disc One is flawless-amazing! The other 3 discs are about 50/50, in my opinion. I am not a big fan of most Italian prog, for instance. On Disc Four "The Flower King" by Supernal Endgame is tremendous! I was a little disappointed in the versions of "Stardust We Are", "Church of Your Heart" and especially "My Cosmic Lover". I counted 21 excellent versions out of the 34 presented. Still I am impressed by the virtuosity of the groups, as a whole. And it is a worthwhile addition to the catalog.

I must admit that I'm still sitting on a fence about getting a copy...

I have Supernal Endgames latest album. Roine is playing guitar on one of the tracks so I guess he payed back a little.

Nice album, by the way. Well worth having.

After further listening..."The Way the Waters are Moving" done by Unitopia, in my opinion, is even better than the original. The versions of "Ghost of the Red Cloud", "Silent Sorrow", "Different People" and "What If God is Alone" are absolutely brilliant, as well. I wish someone had covered "Starlight Man" or "Love Supreme", though.

Talking with my brother today ,we can't understand why this record has not received more of a welcome ? Is it because prog is a tiny market ? :cool:

@Bassman, don't know if it has something to do with a tiny progmarket, bigger problem is i guess that those Colossus/Musea releases are really hard
to get (maybe because of bad distribution channels??) for regular (prog)customers... Since it was released i have never ran into a copy for sale at one
of the shops i visit to get my regular dose op new prog-cd's and there has also been very little advertising/promotion for this 4disc set imho... so maybe
a vast amount of proglovers doesn't even know this box excists. If i am not mistaken even Roine was doubting if he would offer it for sale in the TFK webshop, because 1) he thought it was kind of expensive 2) it is housed in an ancient thick cd-box and he didn't want any hassles with customers complaining that the box had been damaged during transport... I did not visit the TFK webshop lately so i don't know if it is for sale right now...

To be honest with you i myself don't even have a copy of this boxset, although i would love to have it!.... so maybe it's just time Colossus/Musea put a little
bit more effort in advertising/promotion of their releases, because they're worth it!!

Listening to this tribute album again. How many bands have a 4 CD box set of groups paying homage to them? None besides TFK that I know of. Well worth having....
