Hated Albums I Have A Soft Spot For

Here are some unpopular albums that I don't hate as much as many do. What are some unpopular albums you have a soft spot for?
1Judas Priest
Turbo


I'll just say it: I think everything post-Painkiller sucks dick for the most part. That being said, I just can't bring myself to hate this as much as many do. Honestly, I think Turbo Lover, Locked In and Out in the Cold are sweet songs. If this is a guilty pleasure, then I'm guilty as charged.
2Porcupine Tree
On the Sunday of Life


Here it is, one of the most hated PT albums, if not the most hated. In all honesty, the last few times I jammed it I didn't feel the need to skip any track. I could hear it up to the very end and enjoy it for what it is. Sue me.
3Queensryche
Hear in the Now Frontier


Conventional wisdom says that everything post-PL sucks. So why do I like this? Maybe it has to do with being an alt-rock fan. Q2K, Tribe and American Soldier don't irritate me all that much either. OMII and DtC do suck balls though, as does the Tatesryche album. But I'm probably alone in saying I've a soft spot for this era of the band. Guess I'm not the coolest guy around.
4Pearl Jam
No Code


For starters, it's not cool to be a PJ fan. You'll prob get more social approval if you prefer SG, AiC or even Nirvana. Well, if it's not cool to be a PJ fan, it's even more uncool to say you like anything they did post-Vitalogy, sometimes post-Vs., hell, post- Ten in the most extreme cases. In all honesty, I can listen to anything this band did, top-to-bottom, without skipping a track (Vitalogy being the notable exception, and I haven't heard Lightning Bolt). Hipster in me.
5Megadeth
Cryptic Writings


This is another one of those albums that's not cool to like. Most people seem to think that the band went to shit after Youthanasia, only to come back reborn with The System Has Failed (of which I'm not a big fan). While I'll concede that this isn't a perfect album, it grew on me over time and I certainly think it's one of their more interesting 90's releases. Unpopular opinion, but whatever.
