Anyone else picked this up?
I have been listening to it all day, and I think the 1st single is definitely the strongest song on the album. I know on this album they produced all of the songs themselves, and while they are decent enough, the variety and imaginativeness on the tracks is lacking in comparison to earlier albums.
The running time is also light at less than 45 minutes. I don't feel so bad since it was only 9.99 at Best Buy (a sanitized version is available at Wal-Mart for around 9.35).
The coolest thing is the album artwork! The sleeve unfolds to reveal 4 foot long (both sides) 4 inch high panorama of Manhattan as observed from Brooklyn. It looks pretty accurate (although I think 1 bridge is omitted). I would really dig that sort of thing in a specialized frame to fit it.
