    I've often described some albums as 'growers' - those which take a number of plays before you really take to them. I guess a classic example would be Trout Mask Replica.

    I bought Radiohead's OK Computer on release back in 1997, and didn't really care for it. But finally it has grown on me, after a particularly long incubation period!

    Once you have absorbed Beefhearts weird notes it is hard not to make your brain repeat them for weeks
    Sadly over the years i am certain i missed to many great records only because it didn't hit me with the first listen.

    an example of a "grower" for me. When a friend lead me to Van Morrison in the late 70's, I fell in love with, and played Tupelo Honey, Moondance, and the live "It's too late..". I then excitedly bought Astral Weeks. I thought it was ok, but was disappointed. I didn't play it much, but it grew, very slowly over time...decades actually, to be one of my favorites. Now, if I want to play Van, I'll usually pull up Astral Weeks, Inarticulate Speech of the Heart (another "grower" for me), or Into The Music.

    maybe "growers" deserves it's own thread?

    Mystique by Special EFX. Found it in a charity shop in the UK for 20p. It's sort of got an easy listening / jazz / electronic vibe going on. Imagine if Siegfried and Roy had decided to form an ambient jazz duo. And yes they pose with a leopard on the front cover.

    Amidst all this rock and roll mayhem, I'll post this one listening to it now. Later on in their career the Everly Brothers ventured into what became known as country rock territory. They influenced a host of other musicians with this album, covers of a variety of country-ish songs.

    Very enjoyable. They were still in good form as classic Everly duet singers, and you can hear the influence on the Birds and others.

    This is one of my favorite albums. I often listen to it while driving to work every day.

    A friend recently lent me this Rumor and Sigh by Richard Thompson which I quite liked

    Did a little research on the artist and found he was a founding member of Fairport Convention so I found a deal for a 5 album box set on Amazon. Way different than the Rumor and Sigh album, they're all pretty good but I especially like this folksie "What we did on our Holidays"

    Love Richard Thompson. Still touring, if you get a chance to see him live, don't hesitate. Phenomenal guitarist and overall performer.

    My personal favorite is "You? Me? Us? but I own and listen to allot of the others. "Watching the dark" is a good 3cd retrospective including some fairport convention.
