High Rated Albums I Used To Hate...and Those I Still Do

Back in 2012 I posted a list about overrated albums. I've actually grown to love some of these since then, and some I still just don't get.
1Those I Now Enjoy
2Rage Against the Machine
Rage Against the Machine

Not really sure why I disliked this one. Maybe I thought it was too messy or
something??? Either way, it's amazing and some of the best guitar and bass you'll
ever find on an album. Oh, and it has energy to boot.
3The Offspring

I used to hate its simplistic song formation, its simplistic riffs, etc., but after a while
a realized that they were just playing to punk's strengths. It's pretty catchy and
fun to listen to.
Throwing Copper

After really getting into the song "Lightening Crashes", I can't dislike the album
anymore. It's just to serene and emotional.
5Those I'm Still Hating On
6Red Hot Chili Peppers
Blood Sugar Sex Magik

Absolutely no rhyme or reason to this thing. Kiedis can't write lyrics and seldom
creates songs that don't seem randomly put together. Not dissing Flea though, or
Frusciante when he was in there - those guys had/have serious talent.
7Alice In Chains

Too much drugs. It really does show.
8Rise Against
Appeal To Reason

They completely took out their edgy punk sound, which made The S & W such a
perfectly balanced album, and what was left was a collection of soft punk songs
that sound the same. (Re-Education and Hero of War being exceptions.) I'm not
really sure why I included this because 3.4 isn't high rated.
9Green Day
American Idiot

Not a positive change in sound. (Kinda similar to ATR above)
10The Smashing Pumpkins
Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness

Siamese Dream was like...the best thing ever. Its forte was guitar, a sprawling
psychedelic mess of it too. In Mellon Collie, the guitar never really takes front
stage, leaving it as simply a constant background fuzz. Secondly, Corgan wrote so
many songs for the album that filler was just inevitable. If it wasn't a double album
it definitely would have been decent.
