Albums you disliked, but grew on you?

Recommended Posts

I must confess it took me quite a while to fully appreciate "Exile on main street". It's now one of my favourites. Right now I'm digging Zeitgeist by the Smashing Pumpkins, it's a grower.

I wouldn't say I disliked any of them but it took me a while to get into the Beach Boys' Pet Sounds and Big Star's Radio City and #1 Record.

Black Sabbath - Sabbath Bloody Sabbath

Very different from the first four albums. It took a while to grow on me, but it ended up being my favourite.

Nirvana- Nevermind

Got it just to hear what all the fuss was about & except for "Teen Spirit" just didn't get it. After about a year gave it another chance & liked it.

The Beatles - Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band - didn't like it at all during the first couple of listens. I then stopped listening to it for a couple of weeks, then gave it a chance and liked it.

The Rolling Stones - Exile On Main Street - this did take quite a bit of getting used to, but I got there in the end! B)

Yes- Fragile - I really struggled to actually like this album for quite a while! :wacko:

In Through The Out Door.

I so wanted the new album to be Presence v2.0 that I could hardly stand hearing much of ITTOD.

But now it's quite legitmate in my personal opinion.

10,000 Days, Tool.

Very moody and laid-back compared to previous albums.

Now it's one of my absolute favorite albums overall, not just by Tool.

Houses of The Holy - This was only the 2nd Zep album I ever heard(IV was the first), and I was initially dissapointed that it didn't rock as hard as IV(except for The Ocean).

Jethro Tull - A Passion Play, Didn't get this one at all the first time I heard it.

Now I love both those albums.

Presence. I didn't dislike it, so much as I thought it didn't rise to the level of the albums that preceded it, or the one that followed it for that matter. It also took me awhile to warm up to Hots On For Nowhere and Tea For One.

The Rolling Stones - Emotional Rescue

The B52's - 1st album

Red Hot Chili Peppers - By The Way

All of their albums take a while to grow on me .... but then they're incredible.

The latest Tom Waits album "Bad As Me" released late last year. It's a labor of love to get into any Waits album but if you do there's nothing quite like it in modern music. This album especially is pretty remarkable........and it only took me like 15 listens this time.

The Clash's Combat Rock, their most accepted album by the public yet I always felt it was their most compromised album. It's only in the last year that I "got it" in terms of what the band was trying to accomplish in terms of the album. Still my least favorite of their albums but I now actually enjoy it instead of disdaining it.

The White Stripes - Get Behind Me Satan. I wouldn't say I disliked it at first listen, but it didn't really hook me at first. Now it's far and away my favorite of theirs.

The only good song was Chinese Democracy, Shacklers Revenge was ok. GNR sounds like a cat piss mockery of what it used to be, at least bands that hold onto their legacy like KISS and now Sabbath do sound good.

Roar.

The Clash Combat Rock is a great album.

Cut The Crap is much worse.

Give 'em enough rope and Sandanista! are their best albums.
