I will agree that the opening of the review of Rise & Shine is unnecessarily harsh -- something that was brought to my attention earlier today, actually -- and we at AMG may revisit the lead to the review, but it ran as is because Thom Jurek is so excited about Rise & Shine, we decided to run his review as he wrote it. After all, it is a very, very good record.
In regards to the box set, the review on AMG will either run on Monday or a week from Monday, depending on how the rest of the week unfolds. I will say this -- there has never been a box set as good as this. No other box satisfies the needs of the hardcore fans while giving the uninitiated a complete picture of the band. I'm still working out the particulars in my review, but I can't imagine anybody being disappointed in this box set.
One final note -- we're preparing a bunch of lists to debut in May, such as Great Double Albums or Great Compilations. I will tell you that we're running Five Guys Walk Into A Bar as the number one in our Great Box Sets list. That won't convince anybody here, since everybody is already ready to buy the box, but anything we can do to get people to discover the Faces we will do. And there really hasn't been a box set as good or necessary as this.
