Compulsive First Listens

Albums that I liked so much on a first listen that I had to listen to over and over again. Some of them I don't even like that much any more. What albums did you hear that blew you away so much you couldn't stop listening for days or even weeks ?
1Iron Maiden
Iron Maiden


Grabbed me first time and has never let go.
2 Queensryche
Operation Mindcrime


Played it to death and still regularly listen.
3Rush
A Farewell To Kings


Totally blew me away first time and still does for some reason.
4Bob Dylan
Desire


First Dylan I bought and played to death.
5Judas Priest
Stained Class


This seemed perfect to me on first listen.
6Beck
Mutations


Got to me enough on first spin for lots of repeats then grew and grew and grew.
7David Bowie
Scary Monsters


Just blew me away and still love it.
8Frank Zappa
Hot Rats


Became compulsive fast.
9Gorillaz
Demon Days


Don't know why it got under my skin but I was addicted.
10Kate Bush
Hounds of Love


Wanted to play it again even before it had finished.
11Love
Forever Changes


Friend lent me it wasn't that interested but 1 listen and was already a favorite.
12Massive Attack
Mezzanine


Sceptical but then listened and immediately addicted.
13Moby
Play


I dont even like this that much any more but for some reason I played it to death.
14Porcupine Tree
Deadwing


Got to me immediately. They've done better but this addicted me.
15 The Prodigy
Fat of the Land


Hardly ever listen now but was compulsive for a while.
16Queen
Sheer Heart Attack


I must have played side 1 of this endlessly 20 or 30 times when first heard.
17Royksopp
Melody A.M.


Got to me immediately.
18Sparklehorse
Good Morning Spider


Bought this on a whim, grabbed me and still does.
19Ulver
Kveldssanger


Couldnt stop listening for some reason.
20Crystal Castles
Crystal Castles (II)


Randomly saw potsy and trebor rating this high on here so thought I'd try it and can't stop listening to it now. Must have played the track 'Birds' 20 times already.
