How to explain The Books, well good first off. Secondly, it’d probably be the best or maybe worst music to do serious drugs to. Collecting samples from many mediums, The Books stitch together amazing compositions. We’ll post some below and you can play through.

This box set compiles essentially everything they’ve done. Which since they’ve been pretty damn consistent , quality wise, is a pretty great pack of music. Though you have to have $150 to shell out to own this. What do you think? Worth it?

From the label:

A Dot In Time.¬†collects the entire audio-visual output of the Books via 95 songs on 7 vinyl records, a 2-hour DVD, a 56-page picture book, and a cassette-shaped USB flash drive containing every song in high-quality MP3 format. Included in this set are all of the highly acclaimed original studio albums, remastered in 2011: Thought For Food, The Lemon of Pink, Lost and Safe, and The Way Out; also included is the previously unreleased double-album Music For A French Elevator and Other Oddities, a 45-track compendium of rare and previously unreleased tracks, all remastered in 2012 exclusively for this release. The Freedom From Expression DVD is also included here. Previously unreleased and compiled especially for this box set, it collects every video ever made by the Books, including several previously only seen in live concerts. Packaged in a sturdy, gorgeous full-color box, this is the exhaustive and perfectly fitting conclusion to one of underground music’s most vital players of the past decade. This deluxe box set is strictly limited to 1,000 copies.
