I finally got my hands on a copy of it. I've only made it through once, and it's already blown me away.

There's so much going on when listening to it, multiple listens are required to start to comprehend.

I just turned it on, laid down, and started to listen. The first time going through it a few specific things caught my eye:

-The lyrics in "The Missing Piece" and "Life is Looking Up": just the way it came across, the earnestness it added to the story was amazing.
-The instrumentation through the entire song, particularly in "Meet the King". The band dork in me was thrilled.
-The way Shawn Harris sounds in "Doctor Doctor" kept me intrigued. Either I haven't listened to The Matches enough to pick up how he could sound like that, and any music prior to that song he might, or that really was something new.

I got a bit lost from "Toba the Tura" to "A Hundred-Year, Minute-Long Intermission" I'll have to pay a bit more attention to those songs, and the story as a whole the second full time around. The first bit of the story and the last bit of the story made sense, but connecting the two lost me. Maybe its because of where I got lost.
