I got to say that I actually liked that, although it gets kind of old after a while. I would like to see that style mixed with some other more accessible stuff. It just doesn't stand well on its own for me. Although I can see myself warming up to this kind of stuff in the future, it just might be a matter of devoting time to getting to understand it better.

Trout Mask (or Beefheart in general) doesn't sound inaccesible to me anymore, once you get to that point where you "get it" it almost has a pop-ish feel to it, it almost feels catchy at times.
