Help PG on Amazon! Two reviews so far and people are complaining about what is left out the Box set. Let's set the ratings right with an onslaught of 5-Star reviews from the Lunatics.
It's bad enough that PG is underappreciated by the music world, but fans should be thankful for all that is offered in the box set.

Oh, Otter! You are a sight for sore eyes here and I love and admire your boldness and bravery for coming here, to Peter Gabriel's website to give him credit and to ask other fans to do the same!! Good for you! And thank you for this thread!
I've not received my pkg yet, but should do so by the end of the week and I will do my best to add a comment to the amazon page -- I don't usually read or write reviews but I think I can muster up something on a more positive note. I'm sure there's bound to be something I like about the pkg!

i only review what i purchase on amazon. the good amazon news: the 25th anniversary deluxe edition has a 4.5 star rating based on 183 reviews.
my intent is not to be excessively negative, but to provide feedback to PG management:
reports here in the forums indicate that the downloads are working properly. however, several reviewers have noted a "five second drop out at 1:11" of "that voice again." i am unsure if this is a problem with B&W, but this error needs to be fixed immediately.
for consumers of the box set: the audio downloads are 24 bit/48 kHz flac files. windows media player or itunes will not play flac. use a player that supports this format such as winamp.

Thanks for that info, Mozo -- I'm really not at all techy, but one thing I do know -- (or at least think I know ) is that I don't have winamp . . . guess I'll be trying to figure that one out. (This will now just be another excuse for me to consider getting a new computer ).
The Amazon reviews sound like good news. I'm glad of that. As much as I usually like to wish for Friday anyway, I'm really hoping for it this week because I should have my package by then.

i have not used it for awhile, but a basic version was available as a free download. be assured that you will receive your box set before caste. the fate of the universe depends on it.
