Some people latch on to some songs quicker than others and likewise others can say no pretty quickly no because they hear singer they don't the sound of, or aimless song sections on first listen. I know PJS won't pick up a pen on any review until he's heard an album 6 times, but I'm just not built that patiently, but then again, my words aren't going across the middle of magazines for people to read and re-read, so his respect for that situation is wonderful.

You can't just categorise everyone and every song in one dismissive statement. Of course come people get deeper into it than others, its no crime either way.

A singer who drops off every 3rd note or bends every other syllable for the sake of it, will put me off in 2 seconds, a directionless succession of notes doesn't make a melody, no matter how many times you suffer it. Some parts of songs grow on me, but it needs impact to knock on the door of my wallet in the first place.

Similarly, 3 notes of any Hartmann song has me jumping round like a madman, he has the knack of landing the lyrical & musical phrasing and dynamics that just work first time through, but he also leaves all manner of little bits in the corners of his songs that you'll pick up as you live with the albums.

.... and I loved Journey's Eclispe on first play and am still finding new bits almost 2 years later

Music - there's nothing to match it dudes
