    Default Most Underrated/Overrated albums of the year

    I don't know about overrated but I'd say Embryonic from Flaming Lips was probably the most underrated. It's definitely underappreciated and was forgotten about when most people did their best of the year lists.

    Tom showed 1 post in why the whole overrated/underrated thing is generally a stupid discussion.

    It should have been #4 or higher on most people's lists.

    Underrated is overrated, in other words.

    Because of that statement, I think the album is now overrated.

    Black is highly underrated.

    I think MMP, Bitte Orca and Veckatimest are totally underrated because you never hear anything about those albums. Pitchfork and everybody else just completely ignored them. WTF? Now Glaring From Spacious Woods and Mountains of Eternal Frost is just so overrated. Nobody stops talking about that damn album everywhere you go!

    I think it is white that is truly underrated. Unless we are talking about being white. That is still totally awesome. Well, except for all the sunburns.

    I think Bromst is a giant pile of shit. But it's probably just a normal-sized pile of shit. So it could be looked at as underrated in that sense.


    Do you guys see why this "overrated/underrated" shit is stupid? Album A could be better than album B, but album A could also be talked about in a more negative way cause it's "overrated." When that should be irrelevant. Talk about albums based on what you think of them, not in comparison to what other people think of them.

    Spelling everything out for people is overrated.


    That is to say your earlier statements

    Made your point in an interesting fashion. But, like the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, you are tarnishing your good name and early, important, vital work with banal offerings.

    I feel like I have to dumb it down for people sometimes. I appreciate the encouraging words, though. You're an underrated person, John.

    Animal Collective are unlistenable. I really wonder what people see in that band.

    Tommy, I just wanted to use this thread as a resource to find good (underrated) albums that I haven't heard yet, nothing more. I just threw "overrated" in there as well because I thought "why not?" I've only heard Bromst once, now I'll listen to it again. I'm downloading Rock Plaza Central right now. It's pretty simple really.

    That's a better title than this, though there's probably already a thread for what you're seeking.
