Just thinking a bit about what Jonr said. Something good to do would be to hear and recognize it, I think. I always try to play things out on the guitar to see how it sounds.

Try playing E minor followed by A minor. It sounds good, but try E major followed by A minor. Sounds better right? Put your own words on it, but I would say that the tension really resolves.

As you maybe know already the difference between major and minor is only the 3rd. E major contains G# whilst E minor contains G as the 3rd. So what does this mean in our context. Well, it means a lot. The G# in E major wants to resolve up to A right? So it works as a leading tone. The G in e minor does not want to lead up to A, and therefore E minor to A minor doesnt resolve as well.
