An album with no filler material (ie, an incredible album from start to finish) is quite a rare find indeed. I can think of a few off the top of my head: Radiohead's "OK Computer", Neutral Milk Hotel's "In The Aeroplane Over The Sea", Guster's "Lost & Gone Forever" and Glen Phillips' "Abulum". I preordered the CD when it was first available on Glen's site, waited, waited, finally recieved the cd, and was completely blown away. Though I had already heard most, if not all, of the songs through various live recordings and such, the full band versions on the cd are so well done, so incredibly textured. Some of them bear little resemblence to the original solo versions. As fans of Toad know, Glen has an incredible talent for songcraft. Throw that in with Ethan John's talent for production, orchestration, and guitar playing, you have abulum. It's hard not to gush about something so beautiful when most of the music put out these days is absolute drivel. The 11 songs alone, remixed in 6 channel surround, would warrant purchase of this dvd, but with the interviews and 16 or so live solo tunes, including Toad favorites Something's Always Wrong, Crowing, and Dam Would Break and unreleased tunes such as Easier and Sake of the World. At under 20 bucks, it's a freakin' bargain.
