So it's been out for awhile. Did anyone get it and what did you think?

I found the videos, while enjoyable, to be almost too self-consciously esoteric.

I found the album to be pretty great though. Playing around with his own mythology and adding to it at the same time. I think the run of Heathen-Earthling-The Next Day is pretty strong. The Next Day feels younger than Hours did a decade ago.

"If You Can See Me" might be one of the creepiest songs in his catalouge.

There is a double cd/dvd version of the album out now that, but I have yet to pull the trigger on it.
