What are some albums that were originally poorly received by critics or fans (or both) that are well-liked now?

There are some classic examples like In Reverie.

Also, what are some recent albums that have been received poorly that you think will become well-liked/classics in the future?

It's destined to be a classic. Our society just isn't advanced enough at this point in time to understand Kray

Fixed, and we're already well on our way. Lady Gaga managed to do it while ripping off Madonna every step of the way. Image-based music is ridiculous in every possible incarnation.

It isn't the best example but it seems like Say Anything's self-titled has grown on many fans over time compared to when it was initially released.

Yep. Everyone hated on Hate Everyone, yet don't acknowledge songs like Cemetery and Ahh....Men are some of the best songs he's written.

very few musical acts ARENT image based in some way, plus what's wrong with going for a certain visual aesthetic with your music? imagery is art, it doesnt take away from it if its done right and it can seriously enhance the experience if its done really well.

King of Limbs by Radiohead could be a classic eventually. I personally love it, but know a lot of Radiohead fans who hate it.
