Rediscovering stuff you *didn't* like as a kid - The online computery journal thingy of a turtle

01:08 am - Rediscovering stuff you *didn't* like as a kid
Back in the '80s, when I was a big Hall & Oates fan*, I bought an LP copy of Daryl Hall's first solo album, "Sacred Songs". I listened to it and found it... kind of boring and weird.
Now, in recent months, I became curious about it and looked it up on Wikipedia. Seems it was a partly experimental joint effort between Daryl Hall and Robert Fripp of King Crimson, and made use of Fripp's trademark weird guitar sounds. I became curious enough that I looked for a copy on Amazon. I found one used. (It's out of print!) And I listened to it again. It's certainly weird, but now I'm musically experienced enough to appreciate it, and it's now become one of my favorite albums!
What records, movies, books, TV shows, etc. did you look at/listen to as a kid and were bored by, but learned to appreciate later in life?
