Have to jump in here again... Sure one can't give a totally complete review of an album just after one listen. But most time first impression does give you a hint anyway. When an album doesn't get a reaction from me at all. I just find it boring. Then that first impression probably won't change no matter how many listens. Then there are albums that I just hated after first listen. Queensryche's Rage For order and Dream Theaters - Images and Words being perfect examples. But there was still something about them. And now to this day those are still some of my favorite albums of all time. It just took some time to "work" them in :-) It was just not what I had expected after the debut albums.
Or Ozzy's Ultimate Sin. For the first few months I thought that was the GREATEST album I've ever heard. Then It slowly started to fade. Still a good album though...
Some stuff that didn't grab me at first listen the last few years include the latest Johnny Lima or Great White. But there was still something about them, and then I always take another listen later. Sure enough they proved to be killer albums.
See you listen to some Slayer, Coco. They also took some time to work it's way into my record collection. I always thought they were kinda interesting. With Seasons In the Abyss, they finally got it 100% perfect. At least for me....
Sometimes you just wanna have some bubblegum partymusic. Then I put on a Pretty Boy Floyd or Poison. Or when you feel really pissed about something you just put on a Fight or Slayer. Journey for the most part though never gets a reaction from me at all. To be fair I think they have made some killer tunes though. Wheel In The Sky or Separate Ways really gets my foot stompin' :-)
