Soundgarden / Superunknown five-disc super deluxe edition

superunknown

Soundgarden‘s 1994 album Superunknown will be reissued in June as a lavish super deluxe edition box set.

The grammy-winning record is remastered and becomes part of a five-disc package that takes in b-sides, demos, and rehearsals. The fifth disc is a blu-ray which offers up  a hi-res 5.1 surround mix and hi-res stereo audio.

The discs reside in a 8.5” x 12” hardback book (approx. 70 pages) complete with lenticular cover. Lengthy liner notes are provided by Rolling Stone journalist David Fricke.

Other formats will include double vinyl LP, a two-CD deluxe and the making-up-the-numbers one-disc remaster.

Superunknown is reissued on 2 June 2014.

    Another Deluxe Boxset I can NOT afford to purchase! No wonder the music industry is gradually selling less and less CDS with such ridiculous prices your average persons wage can not afford to spend money on!

  2. Michel says:

    stand alone Bluray… ? why not.. ?

  3. Hans says:

    Something for the millionaires amongst us. Nearly 100 euros? I can buy around 7 other CDs on my wish list with this money. No thanks even if I like soundgarden.

  4. Josh says:

    Interesting that (according to Amazon US) the second disc of the 2-disc version offers a ‘best-of’ of the three bonus discs from the super deluxe version. Seems like a good alternative to the very highly-priced 5-disc version.

  5. John says:

    I didn’t see what the 2 disc set will cost in America, but my nephew borrowed my CD a couple of years ago, and I never got it back. So, I’m likely to fork it over.

  6. Justin says:

    Do we have any idea who mixed the 5.1? Please let this be released separately.

  7. Michael1984 says:

    I love this Soundgarden LP as much as I love the band, but jeez why so expensive? How much studio time did it take to prepare these 20+ year old demos & rehearsals? Gimme a break.

  8. John M says:

    I think the price is reasonable love this album I will be getting the Super Deluxe Box of Superunknown!!

    This is a Super deluxe box set. They’re NOT meant to be affordable to everyone. They’re targeted at die-hard fans and exclusivity seekers. For those who can not afford this or don’t want anything fancy, there is a simple much cheaper Deluxe edition.

    My only wish is that they released those 4 CDs as lossless digital downloads, because even if I can financly afford the box set, I am not a fan of big fancy box sets.

    Nearly $100 on Amazon US.
    Umm, no.
    Its a good album but its not $100 good.
    If its over $50 it better be freakin’ amazing and this isn’t.
