How is the extra disc of Among the leaves?

I ordered Among the leaves, but they sent the single disc version(ACTUALLY, I HAVEN'T OPENED IT, IT LOOKS LIKE THERE COULD POSSIBLY BE ANOTHER DISC UNDER THE FRONT COVER. CAN YOU TELL THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE ONE AND TWO DISC WITHOUT OPENING IT)?. I haven't opened it in hopes Caldo Verde would answer my email and send me the 2 disc version. I haven't heard Among the Leaves yet(because I didn't open it yet), I was wondering if I should open it and say screw it, or send it back and get the 2 disc version? Or if I should open it and not care about the 2 disc version. Any thoughts? Is Among the leaves any good? The extra disc worth having? I've liked everything Kozelek has done, though Admiral for me was not as amazing as the other stuff....

Re: How is the extra disc of Among the leaves?

It's hard to say.  I would definitely want it in my collection if I didn't have it already, but the bonus disc is not really essential for the average Kozelek fan.  I really enjoyed the two alternate studio tracks on it (but neither are better than the album versions), and the 3 live tracks are okay but they're nothing to go crazy over.  The 2CD version does come with complete lyrics to all the songs, but I'm not sure if the single disc does.  Maybe someone else here knows the answer to that?

Copies of the 2CD version are still available on Ebay if you want one.

It does some with the lyrics. I opened it and just said F it. I'll probably buy the double disc, unless someone on this forum is nice enough to burn me a copy of it smile

I would pass on it unless you are a completist.

I burned the second disc and can send you the ZIP if you like, but I can't seem to figure out where the PM function is...

It's entirely possible that I'm an idiot, but I can't seem to find any email link. Here's what it looks like from my side of things: http://imgur.com/a/Ld5wJ

*shrug*

At any rate, I'm still happy to pass the second disc along to you, lance. Email me at colin[dot]bernatzky[at]gmail[dot]com.
