A Love Supreme.

I listened to the whole thing in a car ride with my father and felt like I was being tortured. 5 years later I gave it a listen, remembered the themes and loved it.

No joke - just listened to "Never Mind the Bollocks, Here's the Sex Pistols" for the first time (after only hearing bits and pieces over the years). The album completely blew me away. Johnny Rotten's performance (as well as Steve Jones) is incredible.

Wilco - Being There. The lyrics were really too cheesy for me that in the beginning. At the prompting of some people here, I gave it a new listen and have enjoyed it thoroughly since. Not sure why the change of heart, but love it now.

Now I have found albums that I didn't know about until well after they were released that I got into but this is the only one that didn't speak to me and then did.

For me it is Pavement, specifically the albums Slanted and Enchanted and Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain. For years I would dismiss them and even make fun of them. Then I heard one song on a podcast and something hit me or clicked. Now I love those two records.

I loved S&E from the get-go and have always been a little lukewarm on Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain. I didn't like Wowee Zowee for quite a while but now it might be tied with S&E for my favorite Pavement album.

Everything Bruce Springsteen did before 1984. I finally got it around 1986 one night when a juke box in a bar played Thunder Road 3 times in a row. I was mesmerized. But it was more like 1992 when I really became a huge fan of his '70s stuff.
