Default It finally clicked with me

You ever have one of those albums that you own for a really long time and just can't get into, but then one day for whatever reason they just finally click with you? That just happened to me today with Husker Du's Land Speed Record. I like other Husker and Bob Mould stuff but for some reason it took me years of owning this album before really enjoying it for the first time today.

Who has had this experience before and with what album?

I remember when that happened to me with Zen Arcade, one of the most intense experiences of my life.

Oh yeah. I have been thinking about posting a similar thread but that would have been about those albums you have'nt heard for years and drag it out and just go wow!

I was listening to a best of Johnny Cash yesterday and although it has'nt been years, I listened to it and loved virtually all of it and it's not really my sort of music.

Most of Nick Cave's earlier solo stuff like Tender Prey & Your Funeral My Trial. Bought them about 7 or 8 years ago. It's only really the past year & a half I've really gotten into them.
Tender Prey is my favourite Cave album now.

I tried listening to The Smiths like a year and a half ago and they just didn't do it for me. They clicked for me like 3 months ago and now I can't get enough of them.

I had "Everything Wrong Is Imaginary" by Lilys for a couple months and I had only given it 2 listens through. Then for some reason they became my favorite band.

I had Bob Dylan's Highway 61 Revisited for ages and didnt think much of him, but then I got Blonde on Blonde and Bringing It All Back Home now i'm in love with him.

Big Star was like that for me. When I first listened to them about 15 years ago, I thought their songs were pleasant enough but nothing special. Then I listened to them again around 2000 and their brilliance just completely snapped into focus. The melodies, the hooks, the earnest, yelping vocals...perfect guitar pop music.

I actually still struggle to get into Tender Prey. I find it very hit-or-miss but since it seems to be such a fan favorite I keep thinking someday it will click with me.

I can really relate to this one. I hated Morrissey from when I first heard him in the late 80s all the way until about 2005 when for no reason I got "Panic" stuck in my head so badly that I had to run out and buy The Smiths Singles. Before I knew what was happening I suddenly really liked The Smiths.

I wouldn't even give Modest Mouse a chance for several years because I disliked their name and the musical inclinations of a lot of their fans so much. Then they started getting really popular and I started hearing really good songs by them. Before I knew it, I owned three of their albums.
