Top 10 Underrated Albums of the 2010s

LightningStrike
So let's go down to business now. The 2010s are almost over and while we wait for it to end soon, I just want to say this this is an ok decade to be alive in. Movies? Good. Video Games? Awesome and fun. TV shows? They're fairly fine. Politics? Eh. Music? Hmm... Not so much. But there's a lot of good underrated albums that didn't even came on the mainstream and I've been listening to alot of those and they're masterpieces! I also find some on Metacritic too. They rate albums in the right ways. Yeah, take that Rolling Stone! And here is the list:

The Top Ten

1 Wide Awake! - Parquet Courts

Catchy rock songs. Genius lyrics. Great production. This album is so underrated not even their music videos go to vevo. Which is sad because I find this album really appealing. - LightningStrike

One of the dopest punk albums of 2018 - cjWriter1997

2 The Suburbs - Arcade Fire

So what's with it? Is it the happy tunes that don't get your attention. You got to admit this album is so underrated you might even feel like you want more people to listen to this brilliance. - LightningStrike

Didn't this album won the grammy award for best album back in 2011? I mean, I love this album but calling it underrated is kind of weird after the critical and commercial success it have - Pato_cargo

I love the song suburbs! It's so joyful. - Pointingfingers

3 You're Dead! - Flying Lotus

Yes, these are Underrated - LightningStrike

4 The Monitor - Titus Andronicus

There are a few songs that are considered too political, the production is ok, and everything is just fine for an underrated album like this. - LightningStrike

5 Lonerism - Tame Impala

This masterpiece really needs to be more famous and there has been a lot of people that are trying to do exactly that. And this here is one of the major ones. - LightningStrike

This album is amazing. A modern classic, yet it's really underrated and unknown. You'd be hard-pressed to find albums as good as this in the mainstream now. I have a feeling this'll be remembered longer than the likes of Drake will. - NickelbackLinkinPark4Eva

Their album after this one I like more but this is cool - cjWriter1997

Love this Masterpiece - Pointingfingers
