Default Underrated albums...

Post bands and what you think their most underrated albums are, don't have to have an explanation
for example:

KISS




Critics and fans alike when they do mention this album they usually say "Kiss returned to their roots with this one" in some ways it's not true though it's VERY underrated anyway, and one of their heaviest albums ever, more steady, driving liek metal, their early stuff was classic rock inspired, not that any of it was bad, but still a highly underrated album...

Alice Cooper



Just.. completely underrated, very flexible and versastile album for him still ahs the cutting lyrics his stuff prior to this did and quality musicianship throughout.

Lot to choose from… But I'm gonna have to give my vote to XTC's "Skylarking".

They were basically considered new wave at the time - But this album kind of changed people's perceptions about them. It was practically brilliant from beginning to end, and drew heavily from the Beatles and the Beach Boys. Absolutely fantastic lyrics, songwriting and composition by both Andy Partridge and Colin Moulding on every song… plus it ultimately lead to the great side project "Duke of the Stratosphere".

Bleach
- Nirvana

Nirvana, is origin of many bands today. We have their first album, bleach, to thank for that. Most of Nirvana's success is aimed at Nevermind, an incredibly album. But, without Bleach, what kind of start would they of had?

me too Zipper catchs Skin aws awesoem Special Forces was great too, Sepcal and Zipper were liek sort of new-wave/punk-ish (in a way) but all great lyrically, still.
Didn't care for Flush the Fashion too much though me and an old friend sued to joke and call it 'Flush this Album'

The Pixies - Bossanova

Underrated band and an underrated album from this underrated band. (Not generally considered to be their best I don't think).

Set Yourself On Fire by Stars. I don't know anybody besides me (other than people I've introduced it to) that's heard it. Good indie-ishness.
