On the topic of changing opinions:

Adding a new component is always fun, but opinions change on their own. When Pamela Thorby: Garden of Early Delights arrived in mid-April I immediately 'took a scunner to it' (disliked it) and wondered what Polly Nomial was on when he wrote his glowing review. Well, a month passed and two nights ago I played it again -- and now I love it. Shock of the new, mellowing into appreciation as my brain absorbs it.

Such is not always the case; some SACDs are permanently regrettable....

I have also come back to several recordings hoping to have my opinion changed, but find that it has stayed the same.

I very often postpone reviews for having experienced this phenomenon in the past - glad I'm not the only one!

But some are, as you say, instantly & persistently dire!
