Box 1991–2008 is a summary of the Swedish rock group Kent's career. The Box contains almost everything the group has ever recorded between 1991 and 2008. It contains every B-side, many demo recordings and every studio album. It also contains the first official live recording the group has ever made of a concert, a live recording of a new, previously unreleased song called "Håll ditt huvud högt" (Hold your head high) made during a concert in the band's hometown of Eskilstuna in July 2008.

Content[edit]

The Box contains every studio album the band has ever recorded, except for their English releases of Isola and Hagnesta Hill and their respective singles, and also every B-side released after 2000 (all pre-2000 B-sides were released on the compilation CD B-sidor 95–00, which is also included in the box). It also include some demo recordings and four songs that were recorded pre-Kent. Two songs that were released when the band went under the name of Havsänglar (Sea Angels) and two recorded when the band was called Jones & Giftet (Jones & the Poison). All albums have new covers and the box contains inner bags drawn by lead singer Jocke Berg. The box also contains a 96-page-long interview with the band made by Swedish journalist, columnist and writer Jan Gradvall. The box also contains tour history, song lyrics and private pictures.
