I played it by choice once or twice in the last 15 years or so. Not out of dislike, it's just that I hit it pretty hard when I first got into it and once it's been absorbed I think the returns are diminishing - it's just such a long album and IMO less than half of the songs have inherently interesting qualities apart from the concept of the whole. I think it's a very important album and I had fun with it for a few years, but I happy enough to have these songs pop up occasionally on shuffle.
