ITT: Underrated albums by artists/bands who are themselves not underrated
Okay, it's not as objectively good as the earlier ones but it's catchy as fuck.
The Blue Oyster Cult guy did balls up the production somewhat, but this is definitely a gem that a lot of people overlook.
>inb4 Sandinista, it is rated perfectly fairly generally, just admit it has some major flaws
Woah, I've never looked closely at this album cover and always thought it was a sheet of warped industrial metal. I never noticed the hair, what is actually being photographed here?
i thought it was a good transition to soul, it sounds very thematic and also has a lot of saxaphone.
Also, Diamond Dogs should be known as one of his greatest creations because he produced the album on his own and played lead guitar AND sax throughout the album.
Oh, and Sweet thing has the best Bowie vocals ever recorded
I guess I never saw the whole cover before. It all makes sense now.
That's a fair point especially with Teenage Wildlife for me. What I was mostly getting at is that Scary Monsters is a album that receives praise and exists in the public conscience. Compare that to an album like Buddha of Suburbia which to most people does not even exist. Before I started browsing on /mu/ it seemed as if Bowie died in 1986 with no media or fans even acknowledging he made music after Blue Jean or maybe his songs in Labyrinth.
Man, none of these are underrated at all, these all get the praise they deserve. Theyre all good albums but not great albums
wtf this is and filosofem tend to be considered his best
Probably Blackstar actually. I don't think that's just because of his death either. Though I think I only saw one review saying the scary monsters thing for this one so they blew their last chance
Scary Monsters isn't underrated, nearly every time an album came out since a critic would call it "his best since scary monsters" And it's generally considered his last great album by casual fans.
This. And Buddha.
Psychedelic Coil was the best
Most people that know Rhcp don't value this album for what it's worth.
This is a great album, it's just unfortunate that Stop Making Sense rendered it obsolete. All of the good songs on SiT are rendered much better on SMS and the rest really aren't that great.
The greatest hip hop album to date
it won 5 grammys you fucktard
these aren't underrated, these are just good
these aren't underrated, these are just bad
>Not Det Som Engang Var
>Not Seven Swans
My second favorite Ae album. I like how the melodies are buried under a bunch of chopped up notes, so you have to listen real closely to figure them all out.
Despite being a big Depeche Mode fan, I've always put off this album for some reason. It's actually pretty damn good. It feels like a more minimal, synth-heavier version of Construction Time Again.
Fat Old Sun is one of the most beautiful songs ever
One Hot Minute is a great album, it just doesn't compare to any others released by them during that time period.
