If you heard the Cars 3rd album "Panorama" when it came out, it sounded like a piece of shit. But after I listened to it 30 times, things started to come through that made it interesting to listen to that were unintelligible on a few listens. The Cars were like that, they invented things that weren't what was expected, with a few exceptions that were pointed out earlier. They set the trends, they didn't follow them.
