A Few Ablums That Took A Year Or More For Me To Enjoy

These are some albums that I owned for at least a year before I really started to understand and/or appreciate them.

This album flows through moods flawlessly, not to mention the musicianship and emotional content is to die for.
2Devin Townsend

Overall I'm not as much of a fan of this guy as I wish I was, because he's spoken of very highly. But after some time I realized what a massive piece of music this was, not to mention very emotionally driven, when he's not goofing around with the lyrical content.
3Porcupine Tree
The Incident

Gave it a few listens, through it down for about a year and a half, and then I realized how great it is in its entirety. It flows more like an orchestral piece than a progressive rock album, and there is some great material to be had here.

I, like many others, wrote this off as a Meshuggah clone. But after some time I realized how much this band executes their "unique" style on this album. The fusion of melodic guitar backdrops, complicated and rough-to-memorize rhythms, bass that can be heard, and appreciated, a drummer that keeps the whole thing flowing wonderfully, and a vocalist more suited in an operatic setting. There are some wonderful moments here, especially the last three songs.
No Heroes

Although I liked Jane Doe I really never understood its status as a masterpiece, but then again it came before my time. This one seemed to be overshadowed by its predecessor's success, but it's really quite good. Many different types of styles mashed together on here. Maybe sloppily by some context, but a worthy listen for anyone intrigued by a grinding style with tempos all over the damn place.
6Minus the Bear
Planet of Ice

This album felt like bland, monotone alternative rock to me for the longest time, but the overall flow and feeling of this is like nothing else. Refer to the name. This is a perfect record for the winter season. Dense when it needs to be, desolate when it can be. Definitely took me a few spins, but it became all the more rewarding.
