Pretty self-explanatory. These albums took a while to grow on me, but I thoroughly enjoy them now. Enjoy! Recommendations welcome :)
1The Mars Volta
De-Loused in the Comatorium


For a while my favorite TMV album was Bedlam in Goliath, but upon recent listens I fell in love with De- Loused. No wonder it's their highest rated (I never understood that until now)!
2Radiohead
OK Computer


This was my first Radiohead album and, while it didn't take long to grow on me, I severely underestimated it on my first few listens.
3Porcupine Tree
Lightbulb Sun


Definitely not as accessible as some of their more recent albums (Deadwing, FOABP), but I have come to find this album on par with their best work. I don't really know why, but I just connect with this album.
4Isis
Panopticon


I didn't like that there wasn't as much melody in this as in some of the other atmospheric metal I had been listening to, but I realized that a lack of a concrete melody is not really detrimental in any way. Actually, there are very distinct progressions, just not what I was used to. I really enjoy this album now.
5Wolves in the Throne Room
Two Hunters


Understandable considering this was my first real foray into any kind of black metal outside of Agalloch. Love this and Diadem of 12 Stars now.
6A Perfect Circle
Thirteenth Step


When I first heard this I was disappointed that they didn't really sound like Tool. Then I realized that it's not Tool. Then I loved it.
7Gustav Holst
The Planets Suite, for orchestra, Op. 32


Totally underestimated this on first listen. The suite really captures a wide spectrum of emotion. I only wish he did an "Earth" track, although I suppose F#A# (INF) is the "Earth" album...
8Godspeed You! Black Emperor
Yanqui U.X.O


Speaking of Godspeed, this album is really underrated because it doesn't hit you right away like Lift Your Skinny Fists... or F#A# (INF). But Rocket Fall On Rocket Falls and Motherfucker = Redeemer (Part One) are two amazing tracks.
9Neutral Milk Hotel
In the Aeroplane Over the Sea


My first indie album, I wasn't really ready for it. Since then I've listened to some more indie and grown to appreciate this more. I think this and Beirut's The Flying Club Cup are my favorite indie albums right now, but I have a lot to listen to.
10Tool
Lateralus


I feel like 50% of the people who don't like this album haven't listened to it enough. While I believe that it is possible to dislike this album, I think it deserves many listens before an opinion can be truly formulated. At least that's how it worked for me...
