Compulsive First Listens

Albums that I liked so much on a first listen that I had to listen to over and over again. Some of them I don't even like that much any more. What albums did you hear that blew you away so much you couldn't stop listening for days or even weeks ?
1Iron Maiden
Iron Maiden

Grabbed me first time and has never let go.
2 Queensryche
Operation Mindcrime

Played it to death and still regularly listen.
A Farewell To Kings

Totally blew me away first time and still does for some reason.
4Bob Dylan

First Dylan I bought and played to death.
5Judas Priest
Stained Class

This seemed perfect to me on first listen.

Got to me enough on first spin for lots of repeats then grew and grew and grew.
7David Bowie
Scary Monsters

Just blew me away and still love it.
8Frank Zappa
Hot Rats

Became compulsive fast.
Demon Days

Don't know why it got under my skin but I was addicted.
10Kate Bush
Hounds of Love

Wanted to play it again even before it had finished.
Forever Changes

Friend lent me it wasn't that interested but 1 listen and was already a favorite.
12Massive Attack

Sceptical but then listened and immediately addicted.

I dont even like this that much any more but for some reason I played it to death.
14Porcupine Tree

Got to me immediately. They've done better but this addicted me.
15 The Prodigy
Fat of the Land

Hardly ever listen now but was compulsive for a while.
Sheer Heart Attack

I must have played side 1 of this endlessly 20 or 30 times when first heard.
Melody A.M.

Got to me immediately.
Good Morning Spider

Bought this on a whim, grabbed me and still does.

Couldnt stop listening for some reason.
20Crystal Castles
Crystal Castles (II)

Randomly saw potsy and trebor rating this high on here so thought I'd try it and can't stop
listening to it now. Must have played the track 'Birds' 20 times already.
