Feist.

It's not that I never gave her a chance before, I just didn't care for it when I first heard it. Now I love it!

I couldn't get into Sigur Ros based on (). I remember a thread where melon shamed me (in a melony lighthearted way) for not liking them. So I picked up the live EP to give them another chance and put it on while making dinner and put it on repeat because I didn't want to be bothered with changing records while I was cooking. It played over and over and by the time the dishes were done I was obsessed.

Incubus. I'm still not crazy about them but after having one of their CDs lie mostly dormant for many years it was nice to discover on relistening that I really like it.

Tom Vek.

The first few times I heard his songs, I thought they were obnoxious. Then one more play of "I Ain't Saying My Goodbyes" clicked with me. I bought the album, and it was nice to groove to.

The Corrs.

Before I thought all they did was cover songs (Dreams, Stars Go Blue), but after including them on my Yahoo Launchcast, I now have a CD of their songs I downloaded, and am now working on a second!

I'm like Sarcene, it's mostly vocals that either suck me in or put me off. Explains Radiohead... because it can be quite understand a word that serial whiner sings sometimes I reckon.

Same kinda thing with me for The Mars Volta, I like some of the music but then whoever starts singing and I've had enough.

That's how I am with the VAST majority of metal.

My big one is Joy Division. I first got interested in the mid 90s when Nine Inch Nails covered Dead Souls for The Crow soundtrack. JD's Permanent compilation had just come out, so I bought a copy but I didn't like what heard. I thought Ian sounded too much like Jim Morrison and I never did like The Doors. Then one day about 8 years later, I was listening to the radio and "Love Will Tear Us Apart" came on and it finally clicked.

The poppy sound and slightly annoying breathy vocals on the earlier John Mayer stuff almost had me at the point of dismissing him entirely, and then I listened to his awesome Try! album.
