Top Ten Most Underrated Albums

The Contenders: Page 12

221 Sounding the Seventh Trumpet - Avenged Sevenfold

Very underrated, this probably aren't the best Avenged Sevenfold but actually got very cool songs

222 Hail to the King - Avenged Sevenfold
223 Playing to Win - The Little River Band

The 2nd LRB Album with John Farnham as lead vocalist, but not even Farnham's strong vocals couldn't save LRB slide out of commercial favour.

224 By the Way - Red Hot Chili Peppers

This is the Chilies best, but it gets overlooked to Californication. Californication is good, but does not have as many great songs as By The Way. Universally Speaking and Tear. By The Way and Californication have equally great hits, but when it comes to the tracks, By The Way breaks into 1st.

225 Revolver - The Beatles

A lot of people know Revolver, but it gets overlooked to Sgt. Peppers and Abbey Road. It's better than both by miles.

226 Sublime - Sublime

No one seems to know this band, and this is there amazing album of absolute domination.

227 The Unforgettable Fire - U2

It's tied with Joshua Tree, and I'm not saying Joshua Tree is overrated, it's great, but this should get the same amount of credit. Achtung Baby is great, but this masterpiece is better. It has a sound to it that just hits.

228 Physical Graffiti - Led Zeppelin

This is better than Led Zeppelin 4.

229 Mother's Milk - Red Hot Chili Peppers

This can stand it's own to Blood Sugar Sex Magik, for Give It Away there's Higher Ground, for Soul To Squeeze there's Taste The Pain, and then Show Me Your Soul, Knock Me Down, Fire, and especially Johnny Kick A Hole In The Sky, takes the cake. There isn't an Under The Bridge, there will never be, but as an album it's better.

230 Under a Blood Red Sky - U2

This U2 live album takes the best songs from Boy, October and War and performs them live. U2 live is unlike any live experience, being the ideal live band, and the live versions of Sunday Bloody Sunday, I Will Follow, and New Year's Day is unbelievably good.

231 The Piper at the Gates of Dawn - Pink Floyd

So great, but overlooked. I don't think Sid Barrett is as good as Gilmore, but he deserves recognition. This highly psychological blast of light is great. If it was a cat, I'd say,
There's no ways can describe that cat!?!?!

232 The Killers - The Killers

The Killers are one of the best bands of the 21st century, and there debut album has great songs such as All These Things That I've Done and Jenny Was A Friend Of Mine.

233 Magical Mystery Tour - The Beatles

It gets credit, but until it is recognized as one of the Beatles best, it'll be won't be overlooked, but you'll only be able to see it's hair. It has Strawberry Fields Forever, I Am The Walrus, Penny Lane, All You Need Is Love, Hello, Goodbye, The Fool On The Hill, and more.

234 The Dreaming - Kate Bush
235 Warren Zevon - Warren Zevon
236 Jack - John Farnham
237 Code Blue - Icehouse
238 A Rush of Blood to the Head - Coldplay
239 Whispering Jack - John Farnham

It maybe the highest selling album in Australia and spent 26 weeks at number 1. But still underrated among critics and was never given a chance in the U.S.A. You're The Voice is once in lifetime song

240 Lite Roast - Sammy Hagar With Vic Johnson
