Sometimes, the albums which make indelible marks on your memory are the slow-growers. Perhaps it's been an eternity, and you still don't know what your opinion is about said albums, but one day -- it just all clicks. And when you finally "get" it, it sticks with you. You begin to wonder why it took you so long to appreciate such a mysteriously captivating record in the first place, and subsequent listens are evidence that the record has staying power.
Tallest Trees' debut album is one of those slow-growers with staying power, due largely in part to its complexity. Carefully plotted intricacies and layers reveal themselves over time, providing a listening experience that builds upon itself.
