** During Music/TheBeatles' later years, their post-''Sgt. Pepper[='=]s'' work got mixed reviews upon their release. ''The Beatles'' (Music/TheWhiteAlbum) was criticised for its satirical songs in a turbulent, political climate, as well as for its lack of coherence stemming from tensions flaring between the band-members. ''Music/AbbeyRoad'' got flack for its overuse of synths and perceived overproduction, which made the album feel overproduced to many people. In the years since their release, both The White Album and ''Abbey Road'' are now considered among the greatest albums of all time for the very reasons they were criticised in the first place.

Added DiffLines:

* At it's original release in 1990, ''Pale'' by Music/ToadTheWetSprocket was largely ignored and was considered "weak and amatueurish" compared to Fear and Dulcinea. As years have passed, it's become a cherished indie classic. Applauded for it's introspective lyrics, mind-blowing vocal performance of Glenn Phillips, and wide use of dynamic range, it's slowly being re-evaluated as one of the greatest albums of the 90s. It's vinyl pressing, something of which it only got one print of, runs for a pretty penny on E-Bay and it's said to be one of the best albums ever engineered for the format.

** The Boo Radleys - Originally only majorly popular in Britain, their albums ''Wake Up'' and ''Giant Steps'' have both been seen as BritPop and Shoegazing classics respectively. America and several other countries have finally become much more familiar with them.
** Music/{{Slowdive}} - Considered "worse than Hitler" by the Music/ManicStreetPreachers, this band is now beloved for their more subtle approach to the genre. ''Souvlaki'' is hailed as a modern day classic, when it was originally hated by fans and critics for still trying to be Shoegazing despite it being a dying fad.

* Music/{{Slayer}}'s ''South of Heaven'' album. Upon its release, the album was criticised for its slower tempos and more melodic style, a deliberate decision taken by the band as they felt they could not top the speed of ''Music/ReignInBlood''. Today, it's regarded as one of the band's best albums and one of the better (if not necessarily "best") thrash albums of the 80's.

* Despite being their lowest charting single at the time, performing so poorly that plans for a third single were scrapped the day before shooting for the video began, DuranDuran's "Serious" is now recognized my most fans as one of the best songs they've ever written.

* Though Music/BillyJoel had strong sales after 1977, and respect in many quarters, he was regularly critically drubbed, especially by TheEighties (his most visible period). It hadn't helped that he was well-known as a balladeer/soft rocker thanks to massive hits like "Just The Way You Are" and the very poppy, uptempo SeasonalBaggage tribute, "Uptown Girl". By the time Joel had retired from releasing pop albums, respect for his albums and songwriting increased, and works like ''The Stranger'' and ''The Nylon Curtain'' were reappraised.

* To varying degrees, HairMetal is this. During TheNineties it was outright verboten to speak positively of any band associated with the genre, with only the original fanbases still clinging said acts daring to stay on the defensive. Of course, there were exceptions in HardRock acts just barely categorizable as such riding the trend (Music/DefLeppard, Music/VanHalen, Mysic/GunsNRoses), but for the most part it was DeaderThanDisco. That is, until the inevitable backlashes against AlternativeRock and later NuMetal made Hair Metal much more palatable to the public, along with pop culture's prevalent [[TheEighties '80s]] nostalgia and the success of ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoViceCity''.

* Music/SpikeJones: Very popular during the 1940s and 1950s, but most people only saw him as a musical clown, parodying hits and doing sketches and skits more typical of a circus act than a regular musician. As a result nobody took him seriously and failed to see that his arrangements and orchestrations where actually quite complicated to pull off, especially considering all of it was done ''live''! Only after his death did music historians finally merit him.

* Music/MilesDavis: His funk-influenced 1972 album ''On the Corner'' was critically panned and a commercial failure upon its release. Now it's recognized as a huge influence in the development of hip-hop, electronica, and drum and bass, as well as being one of his best albums.
** His 1974 album ''Big Fun'' received the same treatment, though it was more a case of being ignored than being reviled. Four ~25-minute songs coming out at the start of the disco era will do that to you. ''On the Corner'' inspired vitriolic hatred because jazz purists saw Miles' increasing use of tape editing and rock/funk influences (including the use of electric instruments) as ruining jazz purity. His wont for ''On the Corner'' to be mastered for AM radio fidelity simply so kids would hear his new album and get back into listening to him instead of James Brown [[BrokenBase was the last straw]] for some fans.
** Taking a broader view, the fusion era in general; at the time Miles and Teo Macero editing performances on these records was very controversial and alienated jazz purists, but the albums are now usually recognized as masterpieces.
