Super deluxe six disc edition boasts an abundance of material. Disc one features a 2016 remaster (by Andrew Walter at Abbey Road) approved by Charlie Burchill and the second disc gathers 12-inch remixes and instrumentals of the singles, a few of which enjoy their CD debut. Various edits and B-sides can be found on the third CD in the set while disc four features previously unreleased BBC John Peel and Kid Jensen radio sessions, recorded in February and August 1982. All ten tracks on disc five are previously unreleased; made up of alternative mixes and demos and the icing on the cake is the sixth and final disc which is a DVD, featuring Charlie Burchill and Ronald Prent's 5.1 surround sound mix, first released on the now long out-of-print DVD-Audio in 2005. This mix of the album is a unique 'full duration' mix which is different to the standard version. DVD also includes promo videos and a few Top of the Pops performances. Note, this is a DVD-V unlike the DVD-A/V disc from previous Simple Minds box sets.

The '90s were known for a brooding style of rock music, but also for several emerging and revisited genres such as trip hop or neo-swing. Following the eclectic path which characterized the later years of this decade, the series attempted to reunite memorable songs while meticulously avoiding overplayed clichés and filler tracks. The resulting playlist is a well-brewed tribute to Generation X.

With Mercury, U.K. rock outfit Long-View serves up an impressive debut album that owes as much to Coldplay as it does to Catherine Wheel. (…) While singer/brainchild Rob McVey most often recalls Rob Dickinson of the aforementioned Catherine Wheel – which isn't a bad thing at all – his resonant pipes go even further on "In a Dream," a slumbering, ethereal melody. And damn if the pop-touched spitfire "Nowhere" doesn't re-open the capsule shut by the demise of Kitchens of Distinction.

One of Scotland's finest imports, Simple Minds deliver a strong synth-reared release on New Gold Dream. This album harks the darker side of the band's musicianship, and such material alludes to their forthcoming pop-stadium sound which hurled them into rock mainstream during the latter part of the '80s. They were still honing their artistic rowdiness, and Kerr's pursuing vocals were still hiding. But Simple Minds' skill of tapping into internal emotion is profound on songs such as "Someone, Somewhere in Summertime" and the album's title track. But the dance-oriented tracks like "Promised You a Miracle" and "Glittering Prize" are lushly layered in deep electronic beats – it was only a matter of time for Simple Minds to expound upon such musical creativity which made them a household favorite through the 1980s.

Though it's billed as his band first and foremost, in ways it's more accurate to call the solo debut of Jimmy Chamberlin, the brilliant jazz-into-hard rock drummer who helped make the Smashing Pumpkins deservedly famous, a collaborative effort growing out of jams with a guy named Billy. Not with Billy Corgan, though he does show up to do vocals on the gently moody "Lokicat" – interestingly, with lyrics from Chamberlin, who wrote them throughout, aside from one song. Instead, Chamberlin's partner is one Billy Mohler, a journeyman songwriter and musician who's worked on a variety of efforts before this project.
