That's a great point! When we can get accustomed to what sounds our ears readily pick up, then its a lot easier to hear more subtle elements layered in. I guess its like watching a movie 20 times, its not boring because we know whats going to happen, its interesting because we're seeing and understanding things we wouldn't have noticed with only a cursory view.
