3 Somewhere In Time - Iron Maiden

One of my favourite iron maiden albums! don't why it get so much hate. - EzP2

4 Alice In Hell - Annihilator

Yes it's the bands most known album but its not credited as much as much it should.

Pantera should remaster this album, let this album as well as the 3 Glam albums before it for people know where Pantera came from and to celebrate Dimebag's legacy - christangrant

If this band had more albums and stuck together longer then they could of beat any thrash band. - Sabbath

14 Space Police: Defenders of the Crown - Edguy
15 Axiom - Infernal War
16 Circle of Snakes - Danzig
17 Reload - Metallica
18 So Far, So Good... So What! - Megadeth

Up there along with Peace Sells and Rust in Peace for me.

A lot of bands have what I call a "sandwich album." one that comes in between two popular ones making it more underrated. Megadeth has SFSGSW, Iron Maiden has Somewhere In Time, Slayer has South Of Heaven, Metallica has..AJFA. Just a few examples. - TheMaelstromKing

Iron Maiden has Dance of Death (more underrated than SiT), Death Angel has Frolic Through the Park, Exodus has Pleasures of the Flesh - Alkadikce
