It's not for everyone, I know. You may not even like it on the first three listenings. But, there's just something about Van Dyke Parks that draws you in upon repeated listenings. SONG CYCLE is definitely the strongest...but, JUMP! is also very good. I went from "This is odd" to "This is Unique" to "This is unique" to "This is pretty damn cool." Yeah, it took about four times through. Stay with it. It's like a diet. You may not see results at first, but if you stick with it, you'll be very happy with the end result.
