    Everyone's got some tunes in their collections that's killer stuff and has probably never received its just recognition. Thought this would be a good thread to share your favorite hidden gems (old or new). I'm always on the lookout for something good I haven't heard before.

    Here's some stuff I think is highly underrated (in no particular order):

    UFO - Strangers in the Night
    Rush - Fly by Night
    Pat Travers - Go For What You Know
    DLR - A Lil Ain’t Enough
    April Wine - Harder Faster
    Rainbow - Down to Earth
    The Who - Quadrophenia
    Max Webster - Universal Juveniles
    Coney Hatch - Self-Titled
    Pantera - Cowboys from Hell
    Tesla - Psychotic Supper
    Kings of the Sun - Full Frontal Attack
    Soundgarden - Down on the Upside
    Matthew Good Band - Audio of Being
    Big Sugar - Hemivision

    The whole first album by Loudness is way underrated! If you can get past Wok and Woll Kwazy Nights, then you can dig it. Everthing that you posted that I have heard is good as well [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]

    Have heard the Badlands and Arc Angels. Very underrated bluesy rock. Will check out Pride and Glory. Definitely like Zach's stuff with BLS.

    Kiss - Alive, underrated? Maybe with the critics, certainly not with the fans or their peers. How many people played their first air-guitar to an Ace Frehley solo? A classic. Since we have no fire-breathing smilie, I'll stick my tongue out (ala Gene) [img]tongue.gif[/img]

    I guess what I meant is that most people view Kiss as a complete joke musically. I know that personally I grew out of them when I was about 8 or 9 years old. But ALIVE! still blows me away. It's definately one of my all time favorites, even though I think KI$$ has evolved into a total parody of itself. Also, I have to agree that one of the first guitar solos that I ever learned was "Strutter". You definately need to listen to Live At Leeds if you haven't already. I think that it deserves to be put in the same category as Zeppelin and Sabbath as one of the first Heavy Metal recordings IMHO.

    The original, self-titled Union album.

    In fact, I have always thought about writing a book called "The Best Albums You Never Heard" or "The Best Albums No One Bought" and make it full of reviews of all sorts of great albums (from every genre of music) that, by record sales, would have been considered flops. However, if you really listen, the albums really are gems.

    Some of the albums I thought I'd include:

    Union
    Robbie Williams: The Ego Has Landed
    Robbie Williams: Sing When You're Winning
    Van Halen III (yes, I've already said I liked this album)
    Garth Brooks: In The Life Of Chris Gaines
    Journey: Arrival
    Bee Gees: Size Isn't Everything

    There ya go. Anyone else can throw in their thoughts.

    I like alot of Garth Brooks' country tunes but I was too scared to buy his alter ego album. Was it really a good album?

    I've already claimed on many occasions that I think The Bee Gees are great, but is that album considered "hard rock"? Seriously, how recent is it and what's on it?

    Aww, screw it Hemp, can't we just have this thread be about great underated music period?

    </font>[/QUOTE]Sorry...I did say that I was listing music from all genres. So no, of course the bee gees weren't hard rock.

    As for the Chris Gaines album, the whole "alter ego" shit was stupid. The concept was horrible. But, ultimately, an album is not about what's in the liner notes. It's about what's on the cd itself. And, the music is awesome. It's not rock by any means. It's basically pop (not teen pop mind you). It shows off Garth's excellent vocal skills.

    I'm sorry Jeff, I was just flipping you a little bit of shit. I love all types of music except for opera, and I think that alot of Garth rocks. One of my very favorite songs of his is "Two Pina Coladas". I don't know if you have ever heard it. Other "newer" Country artists that are worth a listen IMO are Dwight Yokam and Clint Black. They rock. [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img] Anyway, what's on that Bee Gees record and what year was it released? The "Saturday Night Fever Soundtrack" is definately a "deserted on a desert island with only 10 CD's" one for me.

    The Pawn Kings (w/Andy Timmons) - The Pawn Kings (fuckin' badASS blues...)
    Vinnie Moore - Out of Nowhere/Meltdown (couldn't choose between the two!)

    And that's just the rock & blues stuff...

    That's just what immediately springs to mind without really thinking about it. Everyone here should check out at least one song off of each of the records everyone else has mentioned, I guarantee everyone will walk away being turned on to something they really dig!

It featured an AWESOME song called "For Whom The Bell Tolls." There's no bad song on the cd though.

    OH yeah, if that Vinnie Moore album was his first then right on. Can't see why no one mentioned Lynch Mob? Me the only one who liked it? Also the Live Maiden album that came out way back when rocked out pretty good.
