Everyone's different, Leon, that's the beauty of it. For me, if I haven't found something to hook me after 3 listens, I probably won't. To use your example, I was into that Midlake album from first listen.
I really struggled with 'Courage' initially :shock:

Glad you took to it immediately Nick, I believe I introduced Midlake to folk on here after someone on Waccoe recommended them to me, which must be over twelve years ago, doesn't time fly

I bought the Midlake album around time of release (the TTOVO) in 2006 on recommendation, thought it had promise out of the gate but it quickly faded and it got lost somewhere (think I lent it out) a few years later..Can't remember who to

Bought the Fleet Foxes debut a couple of years later which is a better listen all round...Big Thief are better than both for me,

Lloyd Cole - Guesswork, beautiful album from start to finish. Fans of John Grant will enjoy this. On first listen, it's rivalling Don't Get Weird on Me, Babe as the best of his solo work. His usual lyrical twists and wonderful delivery, with some electronica added for good measure. My only gripe is that some of the tracks feel a little strung out and could have done with being a minute or so shorter, but that's a minor quibble. Full album is on Spotify if you fancy a listen.

Interesting song writer at time is Lloyd Cole, I have a couple of albums on tape from the 80's but felt he tailed off badly..Will give this a alisten next few days see if the skill has returned

A couple of the Commotions are involved, faaip, I think it shows. Signposts where the band might have gone had they not split.

It's very Tool, think I'd have liked a slightly different direction rather a continuation of 1000 days which this is...It's almost Tool by numbers..Still better than most but hoping for more from the album
