For instance, suppose you've heard of, idk, Genesis, then it might be better to start with Nursery Cryme than with Foxtrot even if the latter is a better album. Actually, I thought NC was more appealing than Foxtrot on first listen when first encountering it when I was about 15 y/o. Sometimes earlier albums are a bit simpler and more accessible than the later ones. I recall thinking the weird rhythm of Watcher of the Skies not being as immediately captivating as Musical Box.
