Jessica's gone on vacation on the dark side of town forever...
LOL. That is E X A C T L Y how it started here. The first couple of listens it rubbed me wrong in so many ways, like stroking a cat against the grain it actually made me angry. Like you, I couldn't understand what the fuss was about. But then a few weeks later something inexplicable happened: a song shuffled through my playlist one day at the office and I was kinda noddin' and toe-tappin' and s***. Had a kinda New York in the 70's feel with an infectiously tight groove and some quirky lyrics. Hmm. I liked it. A lot. Looked to see what IS this?? and BAM. Destroyer. I was stunned. Don't know if it was the juxtaposition with the other songs on that particular day or my disposition or what, but I put it back on from the beginning and listened through it's entirety--twice--and the rest is history. I'm hooked. That sort-of lazy, muzak-y elevator feel that you aptly described is now exactly what I DO like about it, especially on work days when mellowing down a notch is essential for survival.
All this said, I respect that you're giving it multiple chances but wouldn't blame you one bit if it never comes around. But who knows? Maybe outta the blue one day when the mood is juuuuust right...... you'll find yourself back in that elevator..... and enjoying the ride.
