Albums that grew on you would make a good Thursday discussion (maybe it already was one). Because yesterday I named TAI's Santi as my favorite sophomore album, but I hated it at first. The same goes for Sam's Town by The Killers. I didn't realize how good they were until revisiting them a year or two later. I had to mature a little, idk...
I'm sure many other people feel this way about certain albums.
I really don't like admitting this, but one of the biggest sophomore albums for me is Sing It Loud Everything Collide -- I'm not into bands like this, their first album was really as you would expect it to be. Bad. But that second one, I really liked, awesome summer album start to finish. Biggest sophmore Sophomore Comeback to me and I am a huge the format and brand new fan, so that's kinda saying something
