This is the first album in a long time that I will put on and listen to in its entirety. I usually listen, decide which are my favourite songs, then head straight for them every time.
Not this time though.
My first listen to this album really was just so misleading. I didn't like it, and couldn't get a feel for it.
I now love it. I don't know whether its because I've now heard the songs live, or whether I'm just in a better frame of mind (sure that's a large part of it ) but it doesn't really matter.
I certainly have my favourite songs on the album, and my not so favourite, however I still feel the need to listen to it in its entirety.
It is kind of like a conversation; if you only take in bits and pieces of it, you miss the point.
