15 Albums I (Mistakenly) Overlooked The First Listen

ABC order. Pretty self-explanatory list, with small little details in the rdescriptions. Maybe rrcomment with stuff you hated/disliked the first rtime and now love. Recs if youve gotem.
1Against Me!
Reinventing Axl Rose

Only enjoyed a couple of songs for some reason. I was probably too anxious to get more into punk to give it a better listen
2Arcade Fire

I didn't care for Arcade Fire for the longest time. Listened to this album and Neon Bible and had pretty neutral feelings. half the songs having the same title confused me and i didn't really give it a fair chance until earlier this year.
3Between the Buried and Me
The Silent Circus

This first time I heard this I thought it was garbage and screaming, now I really enjoy it
4The Flaming Lips
The Soft Bulletin

This is a weird one because I heard and loved Yoshimi by the time I heard this. I was probably expecting it to be more in your face
5The Gaslight Anthem
The 59 Sound

I don't know, I just though it wasn't that good. I liked Sink or Swim more than this one for the longest time.
6LCD Soundsystem
LCD Soundsystem

Couldn't really get into it for some reason. Not until right after the last time they toured in my city
Master of Puppets

I already had ...And Justice For All but for whatever reason it took me a couple listens for this one
8Modest Mouse
The Moon & Antarctica

Both my stoner music friend and my folk/'bassist in a cool band' friend really loved this but I couldn't get past the first two songs for a few years.

Muse is one of my dad's favorite bands (Bruce, Grateful Dead, Muse, Wilco- if I had to guess about past 1) but i didn't like the distorted voice and overdriven instruments.
10Neutral Milk Hotel
In the Aeroplane Over the Sea

This was pretty far into my 'indie' discoveries but at first the only song I liked at all was the title track. Now I love em all
11Of Montreal
Hissing Fauna, Are You the Destroyer?

This one just confused me. I didnt know what to make of it at all- was it lame blip bop pop music, or something better. I knew when I saw them live the next week at a festival
OK Computer

My best friend loved this album when we were 8/9 but i didnt enjoy it for a long ass time
13The Strokes
Is This It

heard it during my metal phase, I don't think I have to go deeper into it

Doesn't everyone not get it the first time? By two I was neutral and by the 4th go through I was singing along
Yankee Hotel Foxtrot

I didn't know what to make of Wilco, are they country (bad), alt-country (worse), mod rock (even worse), or some weird band my dad likes? Took a while to figure out the answer was none of the above
