Top Ten Albums that are Considered Underrated Because They are Between 2 More Famous Albums


The Top Ten

1 Fireball - Deep Purple

One of my absolute favorite songs on this album is The Mule - a very underrated song with one of the most amazing complex drum beats I've ever heard, esp. in the context of 1971. - Metal_Treasure

Between In Rock and Machine Head,their best albums.But fireball is pretty good too,the title track,''No No No'' and ''Strange Kind of Woman'' are my favorite songs here. - HEAVYMETALTHUNDER12345

2 Killers - Iron Maiden

In between the self titled debut and Number of the Beast.For me,it's better than both of them.Every track is great,all killer no filler,the title is very suitable! Their second best to me,after Powerslave. - HEAVYMETALTHUNDER12345

3 Salisbury - Uriah Heep

In Between the debut and Look at Yourself,don't why this album gets very bad reviews,for me it's a classic album and one of their best.It has two of their most well known songs ''Bird of Prey and ''Lady in Black''. - HEAVYMETALTHUNDER12345

4 Somewhere in Tme - Iron Maiden

In Between Powerslave and Seventh Son of a Seventh Son. Now I don't know why Seventh Son of a Seventh Son is considered better than this, for me it's the weakest album by Maiden released in the 80s. The songs sound very similar with each other and the riffage ain't in the Iron Maiden standards. Somwhere in time has much more diversity and it's a way more intersting album. - HEAVYMETALTHUNDER12345

5 The Return - Bathory

In between the self titled debut and Under the Sign of the Black Mark,i would say it's better than the self titled,almost as good as Under the Sign of the Black Mark. - HEAVYMETALTHUNDER12345

6 So Far, So Good...So What! - Megadeth

In between Peace Sells and Rust in Peace. - HEAVYMETALTHUNDER12345

7 Vol 4 - Black Sabbath

In between Master of Reality and Sabbath Bloody Sabbath,not as good as Master but better than Sabbath Bloody Sabbath,Just listen to ''Under the Sun''. - HEAVYMETALTHUNDER12345

8 Spiritual Healing - Death

In between Pull the Plug and Human. - HEAVYMETALTHUNDER12345

9 You Can't Stop Rock & Roll - Twisted Sister

In between Under the Blade and Stay Hungry.A pretty good record,i suggest you to listen to it if you are a fan of the 80s hard rock.You won't be disappointed. - HEAVYMETALTHUNDER12345

10 Obscured by Clouds - Pink Floyd

In between 1971's Meddle and 1973's The Dark Side of the Moon. People usually forget this album, don't they? - galaxyfox

The Contenders

11 Leave Home - Ramones

In between the self titled debut and Rocket to Russia. - HEAVYMETALTHUNDER12345

12 A Night at the Opera - Queen

This album ain't underrated,the opposite actually - HEAVYMETALTHUNDER12345

13 Led Zeppelin III - Led Zeppelin

Positioned between II and IV. Of course, the fact that most of the music is acoustic also separates it from the others. I don't know if it's underrated in general terms, but I think it's definitely underrated compared to its neighbors. - Gg2000

14 Caress of Steel - Rush

Between Fly By Night and 2112. It's an important album because it's part of their transition to prog-oriented music. - Gg2000

15 Give 'em Enough Rope - The Clash

Between their self-titled debut album and London Calling. It's not quite as solid as those two, but it's still got some great material on it. - Gg2000

16 October - U2

Preceded and followed by Boy and War (neither are considered their best work, but they achieved more success and better reviews than October). Part of the reason that it was weaker than the others is that it was recorded too quickly (Bono had to rewrite the lyrics after a briefcase full of song ideas was stolen from them while they were on tour). Still a good album, though. - Gg2000

17 State of Euphoria - Anthrax

In between Among the Living and Persistence of Time. Very good album though - DoroExploro13

18 Warning - Green Day
19 Birds in the Trap Sing McKnight - Travis Scott

This is in between Rodeo and Astroworld - yaygiants16

20 One Hot Minute - Red Hot Chili Peppers

Christangrant thinks it's their only good one - Alkadikce

21 South of Heaven - Slayer

Sandwiched between Reign in Blood and Seasons in the Abyss. - Alkadikce
