    I really like Beginnings to in spite of the vocals. Some great guitar passages in 'Australia', and I love 'The Nature of the Sea', and 'Pleasure Stole The Night' I've always found moving.

    At least most of Strictly Inc is on the 'Chord Too Far' box, all but 3 songs. The Chord Too Far box has a lot of great unreleased music on the 4th disc, making the whole box worth it for me.
