Top Ten Most Underrated Bandsheaven
The Contenders: Page 17XW
Unjustly associated by too many people with their disco output only - but they proved, before and after that, that they were capable of very different kinds of music. And even their disco output is among the best of that genre.
Great Prog Rock band, but too unknown. Annie Haslam pitching of 5 octaves is just perfect
They sure are very underrated indeed. It appears that a lot of people notice their most famous songs ("Always", "A Little Respect", "Sometimes") but they (especially critics as well) do not notice the extreme talent and chemistry this pop duo has. They have hardly won any major music awards (Grammy's etc. ) or just awards at all (just one award in their entire career for nearly 30 years), their songs hardly got to No. 1 in the charts, their debut album "Wonderland" flopped and did not get the attention that it deserved, hardly any of their albums and songs get a brief mention on the best albums/songs of all time lists (even though I believe they should since a majority of them have stood the test of time in my opinion), hardly any famous and well-respected musicians in the entire music industry cite them as influences and some casual listeners can be homophobic towards this band. But most of their music is among the most beautiful I have ever ...more
They got all of the skills, if not more than Black Sabbath (much as I love them too). Just listen to any song off their debut or be Forewarned and you will be sickened at how underrated they are and that they aren't even receiving a portion of the respect and fans that they should have.
Simply and excellent and under-recognized "band". If you want to know why I say "band", look it up. Anyways, they do a wide variety of genres, and bring the best out of all of them.
A great band that broke up too soon and was underplayed. Listen! - Hajj
They were among the best proponents of Progressive Rock during the 1970s, on par with King Crimson, I should say. But for unfathomable reasons, their music did not reach the number of ears it should have. In terms of musical ability, I'd rank them right up there - alongside Crimson, Pink Floyd. It has indeed been a loss for humanity - missing out on the genius of Andrew Latimer!
An amazing alternative band from Boston, MA. Some of their greatest songs are "Ruby Falls", "Amsterdam", "Red Oyster Cult", "The Beginning of the End", and "Satellite"!
