The Bowie box set got scathing reviews on Amazon, and SuperDeluxe is a quite popular and respected blog.

... who unfortunately raved about PR Deluxe, not even noticing any of the sound glitches or the absence of certain edits. I was baffled by their review at the time.

It's the difference between knowing the material intimately (he's a big Bowie fan) vs well... not.

In that case it wouldn't have been so hard to read the Steve Hoffman and Prince.org boards for fan feedback before writing the review, would it? If you're going to be the leading authority on reissues on the whole internet, either you must know your shit or you must check what those who do say before praising a shitty product. Particularly since this isn't about opinions about the artistic content but simple, factual quality control. I always thought this blog was pretty cool and really reliable. Now I doubt it is.
