Default Underrated Albums

what in your opinion are the most under-rated albums?

for me, The Who Sell Out is hugely underrated as is TNT and '74 Jailbreak by AC/DC, Led Zeppelin III - to me its better than IV/Zoso and Heavy Soul by Paul Weller.

Underrated-

1. Jazzy Jeff & Fresh Prince - "Code Red"
VASTY underrated. It's dope all the way around, a great chill out album. It got caught up wit the emerging "gangster" rap scene so it didn't sell that well, but probably Will Smith/ Jazzy Jeff 's top album. But then you would have to count the classic He's The DJ, I'm the Rapper and Homebase. Well top 2 then.

I like his stuff from Let's Get Killed and the Ocean's 12 soundtrack, but I haven't heard anything from Bow Down To The Exit Sign.
