WOW!!! I can`t say I like everything on that list. I`m not a big fan of Pulp and Oasis is one of the very few bands in the world that I actively HATE!!! I believe they have set British music back 10 years. Nor am I a big fan of the Jam or U2. Much too ernest for me. I also much prefer the Blur of the last 3 CDs to their Britpop era stuff. HOWEVER!!!

There is much to love amongst those records listed. The TVPs, JAMC, MBV, Gorkys, Dexys, The Pixies, The Delgados and Broadcast all have made some wonderful music. Patti Smith`s first record is inspiring, Nick Drake is simple gentle and lovely. I haven`t heard the Adam Green CDs but I love the Moldy Peaches so I would be interested to know more about them. Nor am I familiar with the Hope Sandoval CD but the 3 Mazzy Star CDs are very special. And Finally, Yo La Tengo are in my opinion just about the best band in the world. No group has a greater appreciation of what makes for great music. You hear their passion, enthusiasm, wit, intelligence and warmth in everything they do. They are also amongst the nicest most down to earth unpretentious people in music.

Overall a great and varied list. Thanks andylover.

When I have some time maybe I`ll list 50 or 100 of my favorite CDs (and a good half dozen or so will be amongst those on your list.) But it`s so tough to narrow it down to even 100. There must be 500+ CDs that I would hate to be without.

wow, you know great music for sure! and i agree Yo La Tengo are amazing! i should be naming more underatted albums soon..but if i named my favorite albums i could go on i mean there are loads..i guess i should make a thread about that one too:)..but one thing to say..you CANT dislike Pulp, they are geniuses, "masters of the universe" of brit-pop..cmon they are like one of the best bands to exist..and one of my personaly favorites :) ..im interested to hear some of your favorite/underated albums though!

Well, it's hard to say what is underrated because how do you measure public/critical opinion with any precision?

I think Nick Drake and Laura Nyro are underappreciated and not well known these days.

The Pixies Doolittle is an awesome album.

Liz Phair's Exile in Guyville is famous among some circles, but I think that album was brilliant and provocative enough that she should have received greater recognition. To a lesser extent this is true of her later albums as well.

Most of the Beatles' albums get the recognition they deserve. Maybe Hard Day's Night doesn't get as much attention these days as the later albums, but I think the songwriting is amazing. Another one that has some gems is Beatles for Sale (1964).

One of the greatest jazz albums I have heard is An Evening with Herbie Hancock & Chick Corea, recorded live in 1978.

Andylover I totally agree with you! You CAN'T dislike Pulp :lol: I absolutly love them :D

I love all the Joy Division and old New Order album :worship: for me they are all underatted cause they are amazing..even after 25 years Joy Division's stuff sound soooooooo uptodate!

I agree with you I prefer the late stuff from Blur. I also love Mazzy Star. Have you ever hear the duo Hope Sandoval did with Jesus and Mary Chain's singer ? It's great :worship:

Shame on me I don't know Yo La Tengo but I'll make sure to listen to it very soon thx for the infos :cool:

Ive never heard that Jazz album you mentioned before though, maybe i should check it out even though im not a huge fan of the genra :) and yes the pixies- doolittle is a GREAT album! i dont really enjoy alot of Liz's newer material but this album is different i liked it more some reason

i agree, but i'd much rather prefer to here her newer songs on the radio then some of the mainstream shit that comes on over and over like 3doors down and Dave Mathews Band. Her music isnt astounding or anything but i think that particular cd is pretty impressive :)

To be fair, I haven't heard her entire new album, but from the 4 or 5 songs I have heard it seems like Liz Phair is trying too hard to be cutting-edge. I suppose I admire her audacity in trying something new, but she's in her thirties and has a kid and her life has evolved. I would love to see her take more of the confessional singer-songwriter approach than the provocative pop icon route. She will still have an edge to her just because she's always so honest and coy about sexuality and other matters. But tone down the production values a bit and try not to sound anything like Christina Aguilera! ;) She's still a very talented songwriter and I would like her to display that.

I enjoyed the raciness of Exile in Guyville, but I liked it just as much for the candor, cleverness, and sensitivity she displayed.

Fleetwood Mac.....Tango in the night......

I listened to both sides till the writing on cassette wore off when I had it in the 80's, I have met people with massive music collections and been surprised they haven't got it.

I have lot of greatest hits albumns like madonna, U2, Duran Duran as i still always have that fear with new albumns that 4 or 5 songs I wont like or listen to. Coldplay I would always trust to be good.

AndyloverI have to agree- Ride's nowhere is an excellent album. (It will always have a soft spot in my heart as I had my first (albiet awkward) make-out session with my first boyfriend to it.)

By the way- have you ever been able to see Sigur Ros in concert? They are just wonderful- such beautiful music that still translates well in a concert setting.

To add to the Flaming Lips idea- I would like to add In a Priest Driven Ambulance - it is an early one of thiers and quite different than some of thier more recent stuff.

I love The Stone Roses The Stone Roses. Just a fantastic album all the way through. (And perfect for sunny days!)

My fiance and I are huge fans of Gomez and if you ever can, catch them in concert- they are a blast and seem to have such a good time playing the music. Two of their albums In Our Gun and Bring it On are particulary wonderful. They seem underated here in the US but they seem get a good amount of press in the UK so maybe these two are county specific underated ablums! :)

We went to see a number of shows at South By Soutwest (SXSW) this year and the local and national press were talking up a number of bands but no one mentioned The Walkmen - who were just fantastic. I highly recommend their album Bows and Arrows.

An old jazz album tthat a couple of my generations in my family adore is Ahmad Jamal's If Not for Me- really some great jazz piano work.

Finally, I've noticed that when I play the soundtrack to About A Boy (done by Badly Drawn Boy) in my office at work a number of people inquire about who it is and comment that they like it. Now there are about three or so offices from which you can occasionally hear the album. But that album never really got a lot of press- I guess because it is a soundrack?

I am impressed! You have exceptional taste,

Im going to see Gomez this summer at Lollapalooza, i've been wanting to purchase bring it on for a long time now. Badly Drawn Boy are amazing. I first found out about them from the actual movie about a boy and then almost immediately purchased Hour of the Bewilderbeast and what a great album it is, but have you fed the fish perhaps is even better. Would anyone believe me if i said that about a year and a half from now I barely knew who Coldplay were. Lots of things have changed for me since then of course in the best of ways :)

All Conan knows is that after the relative success(public and critical) of Bring it On, they could not reproduce that success and have barely made an impact on the charts since.

And Badly Drawn Boy is not a they, it is a he. Damon Gough to be exact.

The Stone Roses- Second Coming; there's a criminally underrated album for you, sure is very different from their first one, maybe slightly bad production, but it still :rocker:

Electronic's first two albums a pretty good as well. :yeah:

Anyway, have you heard Swedish band the Knife? 'Heartbeats' and 'You take my breath away' are well woth a visit to your local peer-to-peer network ;) .
And if you like those, you might consider getting the album 'Deep cuts' from your IRL dealer. :wavey:

Since these albums really haven't received much limelight, I shall promote them:

En Vogue - Masterpiece Theatre (please, take that literally)
En Vogue - Soul Flower (take that literally too)
En Vogue - The Best Of
En Vogue - EV3

As you can tell, En Vogue deserves more attention ;)

Thicke - Brave new world
Jamelia - Drama
Honeyz - Honeyz
Alcazar - Alcazarized
Alcazar - Casino
Mis-teeq - Eye Candy
Mis-teeq - Lickin' on both sides

I am forgetting a lot here, but my mind is just blank.. I'll probably add more later.

I don't like Mary J. Blige nor Erykah Badu ;) I do like TLC though. So here's an addendum:

Liberty X - Liberty X
Liberty X - Being Nobody
TLC - FanMail
TLC - 3D
Noir Désir - Des visages, des figures

And, I didn't post this before, but I somehow have the feeling that Savage Garden is underrated a lot too, so:

Savage Garden - Savage Garden
Savage Garden - Affirmation
Darren Hayes - Spin

I shall be patriottic for once and stick up for some Belgian music (yes yes Big in Belgium):

Hooverphonic, started out as quite dreamy trip-hop but evolved to a quality pop band, culminating in a toned down unplugged interpretation of their songs in their latest album. Great female voice!

A New Stereophonic Sound Spectacular (definitely check out the songs Inhaler & 2Wicky)
Blue Wonder Power Milk (Eden, Club Montepulciano, Lung)
The Magnificent Tree (Mad About You, Vinegar & Salt, Jackie Cane)
Hooverphonic Presents... Jackie Cane (Sometimes, The World is Mine)
Sit Down And Listen to Hooverphonic (One, fantastic must-hear version of Vinegar & Salt)

dEUS: rock with great sense of melody. not afraid of experiment, but song still first.
Worst Case Scenario
My Sister = My Clock (Mini EP)
In a bar, under the sea
The Ideal Crash
No More Loud Music (the singles) great way to get started! Hotel Lounge has a high place on my best ever songs list

Conan is very right, Soulwax have made some great singles. I don't know their albums, but I'm sure they're high quality too!

Of course truly big in belgium are all those soft-house thingies that all sound pretty much the same...
