pauls boutique-beastie boys i know it was a fav of critics but it rarely got any play.

ice cube-death certificate i hear people say they loved earlier and later albums after he left NWA, but i think this may be his best.

lench mob-guerillas in the mist this was an awesome record from front to back but JD going to jail and cube doing movies kind of killed the group before too many people took notice.

pixies-surfer rosa most people that have heard the pixies know songs form doolittle, but SR was a great album as well.

judgement night soundtrack after run dmc and aerosmith hooked up an album featuring groups from rap and rock was bound to happen, and this one included many of the biggest names from both genres and was excellent from end to end.

Agreed. Paul's Boutique and TISFWO are my 2 favorite BBoys albums.

I guess you probably know about their tour-film DVD already. I think it's out next week. (I'm not a Demon Hunter afficionado, but I get weekly newsletters about new releases).

Some time ago I assembled a list of "50 albums that made me the man I am today" and these were both on the list. I remember walking past a record shop and seeing the promotional poster for the Judgment Night album and thinking "holy s**t!" It's not often that a film soundtrack assembles its own music (probably even less so today, marketing being what it is).

Good call. I haven't listened to that in ages. I have it on cassette, but no cassette player. Heh. Maybe I'll buy the CD someday. So much music, so little time...

Midnight Vultures - Beck

'Till the Medicine Takes - Widespread Panic

Old and In the Way (self title)

I think a lot of the MTV unplugged series are under-rated too... Except for Nirvana, which almost everyone thinks is phenominal, but the SRV and Clapton ones are a couple of my favs

That reminded me about my wedding morning. I had about three hours to kill so I put on the headphnones and went through most of my old cds. Selecting songs here and their. It was great. It was like I relived the previous 15 years of my life. A lot of those songs I hadn't heard in a long time and unfortunately haven't listened to since But those three hours will be remembered for a long long time.

Primus - Frizzle Fry

RHCP - Mother's Milk is much like Paul's Boutique in that it gets some critic's raves but is generally under appreciated IMO. Also, Uplift MOFO Party Plan is great!

Nirvana - Incesticide

Primus is underrated, period.

Good call, though!

Local H - Local H comes alive, I mean if you can make Toxic sound like an awesome rock song then you got to be good.

Midnight Oil - Diesel and Dust, also Blue Sky Mining

Helmet - Meantime

I'll stop, as it seems my list is turning into albums many haven't listened too, but should, instead of the original intent of this thread

Warsaw - (eponymous)



Warsaw was the precursor to Joy Division, and many people just think of it as a Joy Division album (so if you're looking for it in a record store or on a website, you might find it filed under J).

Tricky - Maxinquaye



I suppose I would call just about everything Tricky has ever done "underrated", but Maxinquaye is the album everyone should hear first, imo.

Note to self: Find these albums online and give 'em a listen.

Seriously, I've only recognized a few of the albums.

Also, since some people brought up Beck- What do you guys think of the Sea Change album? I thought it was incredibly deep and honest. It's an album I recommend to people often when they're going through tough times. It's depressing, sure, but I think it shows other people hurt too.

Fleetwood Mac's Rumours is one of my favorite albums of all-time. Also, pretty much anything by Alan Parsons.
