I've stopped trying to be a TD completist... far too expensive. And I'd be dishonest to myself buying and keeping albums I don't like, just because they're there and they have TD written on it. (I prefer spending my time enjoying the TD output I like instead of endlessly ranting about releases that don't fit my taste - what's the point?)

Regarding the compilations: Some of them look promising, maybe I'll buy them later, but with my budget my top priority is the new stuff. I see the point of TD releasing them for listeners new to TD. I don't understand people buying all the compilations just because they exist and because they feel they have to buy them - and then later blaming TD for ripping them off. Spend your cash on something you enjoy and not on something you know you're going to hate.

I'm a sucker for compilations of many bands not just TD. Especially if they do contain THE best of which in a lot of cases doesn't happen. Theres usually one or two songs left out you think should be there. TD are bringing out a lot...As long as I can afford them I'll snap them up.

Must agree. These days, I have to be picky about what I spend my (all too infrequent) "mad money" on. If TD has something brand new (like One Night in Space), then I'm all for it. Remixes and re-releases must be fairly substantially different from the originals for me to part with my money. The Dream Mixes fall into this category.

That's exactly my point of view as well. As TD are moving in such a great direction with their recent new compositions, I don't feel the need to buy the new compilations as well just for the sake of owning them. I already have most of these tracks and the ones I don't own I still have the opportunity to download them (and create my own personal compilations :wink: ).
I believe that there are many people out there who enjoy these compilations. Still as I don't have that much money I concentrate on new music, that's no problem for me.

Well chaps Im a TD Completist (CD wise) and always will get everything that's released.

I like the way TD are set up with releasing on there own label, at least you know a high percentage of your hard earned lucre is going to the true artist not some big wig in an ivory tower.

Im not particulary keen on compilations, but i have got these and the previous ones and they do get regular listenings,sound quality is top notch.

If money was no problem then I'd buy them, but with limited finances, I have to concentrate on the new material.

Mick,
There not essential purchases, and if I were in your position Id stay with the new releases, you most definately can't go wrong.

Have you got One Night in Space EP ?
