Yep ... listened to the 2CD version, and to be fair I need to listen again. 
My sole spin was been in a car, while I was out of town, so I was paying 
closer attention to directions & such so I wouldn't get lost.

On first listen, it's so-so at this point.

It's definitely something different, something gutsy, and a little 
pretentious ... easily half the tracks are spoken word with some backing.

The songs seemed good, althought they didn't blow me away on the first 

The speakers in the dramatic parts are interesting choices (Steve Buscemi, 
Willem Dafoe, etc).

Anybody get a more detailed listen?
