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
Smash


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.
4Live
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
Dirt


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.
