Most Underrated Rock and Metal Albums of the 2000s

Feel free to add your own. As long as they were released in the 2000s and aren't very recognized.

The Top Ten

1 In Absentia - Porcupine Tree
2 The Antidote - Moonspell
3 Hail to the Thief - Radiohead
4 Remedy Lane - Pain of Salvation
5 The Mantle - Agalloch
6 Transatlanticism - Death Cab for Cutie
7 From Beale Street to Oblivion - Clutch
8 A Twist in the Myth - Blind Guardian

I agree it's underrated. An album with some of the best vocals by Hansi - Fly, Another Stranger Me, Skalds and Shadows, Otherland, This Will Never End. I listen to this album for the vocals (it has the best vocal harmonies). The album sounded softer than their usual stuff because they focused on vocals, added more progressive sound, etc. Songs are very well written and performed but some fans probably expected something heavier. Some fans liked it though. I like it. - Metal_Treasure

9 Demons & Wizards - Demons & Wizards

It's not well known because Demons & Wizards is a metal supergroup and a side project of musicians from Iced Earth and Blind Guardian. There are no bad songs on this album, even the bonus track is great. Dare to say the best vocal performance ever by Hansi is on here - My Last Sunrise.
This band released 2 albums - in 2000 and 2005. Both are highly recommended. - Metal_Treasure

10 Seasons - Sevendust

The Contenders
