The live show he did for it was probably one of the best shows I've seen him do, and I thought the film. was almost as enjoyable, but it's the only solo album he's done that I don't really like listening to. Considering the film and all that other stuff were part of the project, it's definitely not a complete miss.
Anyway, I'm still sad to see DD/LY at the bottom of so many lists. Give it another shot. It's really good.
