What's your current grower album?
Some albums I listen to which I like hit me immidiately (such as Raise The Dead by Phantom Planet, excellent alt. rock record, which sucker-punched me like Mike Tyson at his best. Also, Loveless.) Then there are the (in)famous grower albums. What I'm asking is what's your current grower, the album you don't fully understand/like/appreciate but you're going back to it a few times, because you know it'll hit you eventually? Mine right now is the indie rock standard In The Aeroplane Over The Sea by Neutral Milk Hotel. The praise it has gotten, and the heights it has risen to in the world of indie music, are frankly astonishing (unintended pun!) I love a lot of things about it - the surreal cover, the surreal band name, the fact it's kinda sorta a concept album, but I'm not sure I GET IT. How could I go about this?
