This post has been prompted by listening to a particular CD that until recently I'd kind of dismissed as "used to like it - not sure if I really still want it" and that album is this one;
Bring It On by Gomez.
It was a Mercury Prize winner, back in 1998, and that is one reason I bought it, plus the fact that the track "Whippin' Piccadilly" got a fair amount of airplay at the time and I liked the song.
I liked Gomez so much at the time that I bought their follow up album Liquid Skin too.
Then, in around 2000, I went off them. I just stopped playing their albums and kind of forgot about them completely.
Anyway, I was refilling the car stereo CD changer cassette on Sunday and my gaze fell on Bring it on and, on impulse loaded it up.
I have been listening to it in the car since Sunday, playing it three times so far and guess what?
Yep, I really like it.
So, who else has had similar happy revisitings?
Or, for that matter, unhappy ones? I have one of those too. I bought the first Muse album when it came out and didn't like it much. I tried it again last year and still didn't like it. That one went for 50p in a car boot sale.
I am keeping the Gomez though and will have to give Liquid Skin a spin or two as well.
