The Ol' Change Of Mind

Albums I admittedly did a 180 on. Clearly, some albums take a little longer than others to show their true colours. Some are a tease, they work well at first and you lose interest. Some come off as average and get better as you listen to it.
1Lupe Fiasco
The Cool


Before: 2.5, After 3.5 (+1) - While he has better hit songs on "Food & Liquor", this album made me change my mind because of how little weak songs there are. It's actually easier to listen to than the latter because you don't usually hate the songs.
2The Dillinger Escape Plan
Ire Works


Before: 3.5, After 4.5 (+1) - Took me a while to see this album as a almost classic, but DEP actually manage to create a solid album, even if it feels more mainstream than the other ones.
3Anberlin
Cities


Before: 3.5, After 4.5 (+1) - This used to actually be my least favorite Anberlin album, the reason it makes this list is because now I consider it their strongest album. Maybe the lovey-dovey lyrics got to me at first, but now I actually get why they're so good.
4Brand New
The Devil and God are Raging Inside Me


Before: 3, After 4 (+1) - I listened to the album "Daisy" before this, so in comparison, at first "Daisy" seemed better and catchier. But then I went through a phase of depression a few years ago, and was shocked at how often I felt like listening to this album.
5Karnivool
Sound Awake


Before: 3, After 4.5 (+1.5) - This album is the reason I made this list in the first place. Nothing grabbed at me when I first listened to it a month ago, but wow now I feel like listening to it every day practically. The first five songs are outstanding.
6Thousand Foot Krutch
Phenomenon


Before: 2.5, After 4 (+1.5!!!) - This had the biggest jump of anything I've changed drastically. I actually really didn't like this at first, but eventually songs like "Break the Silence" and "New Design" stick out one by one and invade you head.
7Eminem
Relapse


Before: 3.5, After 2.5 (-1) - Now we begin with the losers of the list. When this came out I tried overly hard to like this album because I'm an Eminem fan at heart. But prolonged listening showed me just how weak this album is and how annoying his voice is on it.
8Metric
Live It Out


Before: 3.5, After 2.5 (-1) - "Fantasies" started me on my Metric overdose. I immediately searched for this album after hearing "Empty" and "Monster Hospital". Unfortunately, the songs died on me a bit and some (Hand$hakes) actually started to piss me off. That wavy whiny voice she has in that song is up there in "Ke$ha territory".
9Tool
10,000 Days


Before: 4, After 3 (-1) - I was definitely one of those people that confused how good "Vicarious" was to the rest of the album. There are some great songs, but after hearing their earlier stuff, it's disappointing to see how little they can match how good they were before.
10Deftones
White Pony


Before: 5, After 4 (-1) - This is the saddest album on this list. It's always disappointing to rate an album perfect and then realize that "White Pony" is actually weaker on average than their other albums like "Diamond Eyes" and "Around the Fur". It's still very good, but not even close to their best. I guess it would be hard though since they make such excellent music.
