Top 10 Most Underrated Albums

Ever loved an album which everybody seems to hate? Ever discovered that sometimes the overall score isn't what it "should've been"? This is a typical occurrence in general every metal bands. A good band will always eventually end in the "lesser corner" where we constantly compare to the "better corner". These are the most underrated "shit" ever in my opinion. In no particular order.

1. Evergrey - Monday Morning Apocalypse
2. In Flames - A Sense Of Purpose
3. Sonata Arctica - The Days Of Grays
4. Metallica - Load
5. Kamelot - Poetry For The Poisoned

SF's Top 20 For 2008

Like my own 2009 top list, it's been extremely hard to narrow down to a final twenty because of so many releases in recent years. But twenty it is and of course, I cheated again with my other two lists of overlooked albums and influential albums. These lists are by no means a definition, but a musical statement and hopefully you reading this list can find out something you haven't heard of before and enjoy it as much as I do. Yes, some big names are missing, some are too obscure while some are too mainstream, but I listen to what I like. Just be sure to give them a go with youtube and internet downloads readily at your disposal ^ ^ Some that didn't quite make it into the list but would want to mention them anyway as they are awesome nonetheless: Bison B.C., E-Force, Hail Of Bullets, Keldian, Draconian, Deadlock, Shadowkeep, Battlelore etc

1. Oceans Of Sadness - The Arrogance Of Ignorance
2. Textures - Silhouettes
3. UnSun - The End Of Life
4. SepticFlesh - Communion
5. Poisonblack - A Dead Heavy Day
