I hated the Band's brown album for years. The only song I liked was Whispering Pines. A few months ago, I dug it out, and I've probably listened to it about sixty times in the past month.

I loved just about every Dylan album but Blonde On Blonde when I was in middle school...junior year in high school, I fell in love with that one too.

Elvis Costello's Imperial Bedroom left me cold when I first heard it (I was really into Blood & Chocolate, Get Happy!!!, and Trust at the time). Nowadays it's about the only Costello album I listen to with any regularity.

Didn't care for Revolver the first few times out. When I started skipping stuff like Good Day Sunshine and putting And Your Bird Can Sing on repeat, it clicked.

I didn't like XTC's Wasp Star (my namesake!) at first, because I was expecting, well, "Apple Venus Part 2." When I stopped listening for a certain sound and just accepting the album for what it was, I fell in love with it.

I've had a copy of Fresh Fruit For Rotting Vegetables by the Dead Kennedys for a good three or four years, and I only really started to appreciate it as a classic a couple of days ago.

Little Creatures by Talking Heads was an album I always thought was a bit too pop-oriented and therefore a bit of dud. Took a good year or so for me to realise it's actually one of their best albums, and a real credit to the band's diverse musical talent.

Most of my favourite reggae albums took quite a while to grow on me too. 96 Degrees In the Shade by Third World, Marcus Garvey/Garvey's Ghost by Burning Spear and Gregory Isaac's Extra Classic are a few examples of this.
