albums you've lost your connection with (& why)

Inspired by SoccerRiot's excellent (yet hurtful) review of Muse's Absolution. Here are some albums I used to love, but now they don't really resonate with me. It will never diminish what they meant to me and how much I love them, but I don't feel a particular desire to indulge in them these days.
1The Offspring
Ixnay on the Hombre

I can't even remember the last time I listened to this album in full. It was probably in 2009 while writing my review for it. I don't by any means dislike it, but it certainly doesn't resonate with me like it used to. Dexter's voice is bit more grating than I remember, and the moments that used to get my blood pumping just don't excite like they used to. Every once in a while this will hit the spot, but those moments are few and far between anymore.
2Sum 41
Does This Look Infected?

I still remember the sensation of being in love with this album very clearly. The winter of my 8th grade year was consumed with endless hours of this in hand. Then, I slowly started to grow up. As time wore on, Sum 41's antics wore thin. The heavier moments didn't bruise like they used to and the sugary pop-punk tasted a bit too sweet. I didn't mean to leave these guys behind, it kind of just happened.
Karma And Effect

I think even at the time I knew this wasn't great music,but I was on the cusp of teetering over into heavier territory and Shaun Morgan's scratchy bellow was juuust harsh enough that I could pretend I liked more "extreme" music without actually having to commit to it. I won't deny that a few songs still spark a little somethin' in me, but that place that used to house a flame now only homes a flicker.
