Yep, definitely a great album. It's the one time on the last few discs that he tried to do a varied album with a load of different styles and actually did them all well.
None of them are as good as Brutal Planet or Dragontown, obviously, but DD is far better than both The Eyes and Nightmare 2.
Along Came A Spider gets better and better with repeated listens.
