It's not like buying a live album, it's like buying half a live album. The whole thing probably amounts to 3 hours worth of live material (too lazy to check how long the first 4 combined are, but I'm pretty sure it's less than 3 hours). 3 hours of live material is a little bit more than a live double album. A live double album typically goes for about one-and-a-half times the normal price of a CD. Paying 4 times as much for the same stuff = us getting boned. Put it another way: the Wrath of the Norseman set was over seven hours of material and cost $15. More than that, it was DVD footage, rather than just audio, which is more expensive to produce (price of all the cameramen and editing video on top of the cost of recording and mixing sound). But even pretending that it was audio, 7 hours of audio for $15 versus 3 hours for (call it $14 for each CD x 4) $56. That's like a ten-inch cock rammed balls-deep into our collective assholes. Needless to say the WotN set being 7 hours for $15 was one of the most insane bargains I've ever seen and they shouldn't be expected to show that level of awesomeness in the future, as it's a fucking high bar, but still...this is a pretty raw deal for long-time fans. I would be completely happy if they just released the second discs to all the albums - i.e. just the live material - and charged $30 for it.
