Whenever I hear a song I like for the first time, I go to the album to listen to it in context. Artists (foe the most part) put their songs together in a specific order and I want to view it through that lens. Sometimes it's trash and you move on, but sometimes you find "perfect albums". They take you on an adventure through the course of the album

Some of mine are:

Random Access Memories - Daft Punk

The Mistress - Yellow Ostrich

In the Aeroplane Over the Sea - Neutral Milk Hotel

Plastic Beach - Gorillaz

Daylight - Aesop Rock

And many more

My first listen to Plastic Beach, I hated it. As I had bought it on a whim and money was tight at the time, I gave it a few more shots over the next couple of months and now it's one of my favorites. It's probably the album that convinced me to give music I don't immediately like a second chance.

Almost all albums I love most took several listens to get into. Music that sounds great on first listen often becomes boring quickly. More challenging stuff takes its time but in the end delivers much more pleasure.
