Well worth the wait,
This review is from: Andromeda Heights (Audio CD)
I'm a big fan of the Sprouts but when I first bought this album, years and years ago, I really detested it. I felt betrayed. There didn't seem to be one decent track on the entire piece of plastic, so it lay at the back of my collection gathering dust. I never entirely forgot it though. There's just something patently absurd in the thought that the sprouts could produce a totally rubbish album. Now and again I'd dig it out and give it a whirl. Very slowly (and I mean very, very, very slowly) odd bits began to filter through, slowly infecting the rest of the album with merit. I'm not sure what happened, (simple magic perhaps) but times change, attitudes shift, tastes mellow, ears evolve, expectations diminish, predjudice disipates - eventually, the album's true genius did materialize. Hopefully it will happen more quickly for you than it did for me, but if it doesn't...persevere.
