If you don't like Light sleeper, I'd say your either not giving it a fair listen or to be harder, you just don't want to. Its one of those records that flows smoothly from start to end - usually the hallmark of a very decent record. 

 

Or ...

Perhaps it was a million miles away from the type of album you hoped to get from Neil & Liam, so you put it aside for a month, then revisited it a couple of times with a set of headphones and a fresher, more open, frame of mind, and now ... 

Yes, you can admit that the album’s soft ambience is well-crafted, and that there are a few nice snatches of melody here and there, but still ... you find that none of the songs, nor the album’s feel as a whole, really grabs you enough to make you WANT to have another listen.

I suppose that if I liked having dreamy, ambient-heavy, sparse-on-melody music playing in the background while I did other things (or did nothing at all), this album would get more spins, and I might develop a better appreciation for its subtleties.  But, alas, I do not.  It's nothing against Neil & Liam, it's just not how I relate to music, theirs or anyone else's.

Hey, I don’t knock or question anyone for liking “Lightsleeper” — art is subjective, after all — but nor do I want be labeled as unfair or stubborn for NOT liking it.  ;-)
