This One Grows On You Over Time

My initial impression of Return of Saturn was that it was good but a little too depressing. I listened to this one next to the more electronic Rock Steady and found Return of Saturn was the weaker CD.

However, after a few listens I find that Return of Saturn is more rock oriented with steady rhythms and slightly more captivating hooks than the aforementioned Rock Steady. I always liked Simple Kind of Life, Bathwater, Staring Problem, Ex-Girlfriend, and Dark Blue. However some of the other tracks such as Comforting Lie, Too Late, Marry Me, and Suspension Without Suspense seemed to buzz around in my head. I am looking through the song titles and maybe one or two tracks seem even a little forgettable at this juncture in the listening process.

Since many of the songs reflect on breakups, I realize that depression often settles in. Sometimes I would rather listen to more hopeful lyrics in my music. But I can certainly appreciate the creativity that artists experience when they go through traumatic and heartfelt experiences. Fleetwood Mac's Rumours was a grammy award winning recording because of this. And No Doubt's Return of Saturn certainly rates strongly in this area as well.
