10 horribly underrated albums

Recommended Posts

Okay so I made this top 10 the most underrated albums, they are all just as good but some are more underrated than others and that's how I ended up doing this list :) if you want post your list below :mhm:

I didn't include britney albums because it would be boring to have her whole discography here

10. Madonna - Confessions on a Dancefloor (2005)

Okay I admit I don't particularly stan Madonna but this album, mainly dance music, shits all over anything she's ever released. Ray Of Light who?

9. Shakira - She Wolf (2009)

I must say, her English throughout this album isn't that good. Some lyrics are cringeworthy, like 'Why wait for later?/I'm not a waiter' but the flow of the album is perfect and the songs are well produced. However, this masterpiece is not aknowledged as it should be.

8. Skrillex - Recess (2014)

I can't at people calling this Skrillex's worst album. Yes, it might be taken away from dubstep and you can find over the top tracks like 'Doompy Pomp' but the different sound Skrillex chose for this album is experimental enough to be good. One of my favourites as a Skrillex fan

7. Nicki Minaj - The Pinkprint (2014)

Well even Nicki's record label called this piece of art 'The Shitprint' but I believe it's because Nicki got back to her roots in this one and went for a harder rap style. Most of the lyrics are strong and meaningful and in some tracks Nicki showcases her voice more than ever. I only skip that shitty collab with Beyonca.

6. Paris Hilton - Paris (2006)

Why the hell is this album so overlooked? I enjoy the beats and her breathy voice. The lyrics are fun and it's a guilty pleasure you should be bopping to.

5. NSYNC - No Strings Attached (2000)

Yes it was a commercial success but why is it so forgotten right now? It's full of pure pop anthems like 'It's Gonna Be Me' and you can get in the groove with songs like 'Just Got Paid'. There are also hot tracks like 'Digital Get Down' and 'Space Cowboy'

4. Bridgit Mendler - Nemesis (2016)

This EP is so flawless I can already consider it an album. It got lots of backlash from the fans saying it was not 'mainstream' enough, but it surely is filled with chill songs

3. The Weeknd - House of Balloons (2015)

This was an old mixtape but it got released in 2015 with remasters and hell they are hot. The songs are dreamy and chill, with really provocative lyrics. What else could we ask for?

2. Brooke Hogan - Undiscovered (2006)

I still can't figure out the reason people liked 'The Redemption' more than this. Why???? This album has a perfect flow and though some songs are corny they are all fun and you can feel like the queen of the world while bopping to this. Typical 2006 urban beats.

1. Heidi Montag - Superficial (2010)

WTF! PEOPLE HATE HEIDI AND THAT'S THE ONLY REASON THEY HATE THE ALBUM! Although there is some over the top vocal production and a few parts are offkey, I'm sure this would be as great as Flawless Fatale if the production was slightly better. The songs are catchy and fun, perfect to dance!!

I agree completely. Though, I don't love The Weeknd. I like Bridgit, too, especially Atlantis. But I didn't really like the new EP.

 

I know why some people don't like Superficial. Heidi is not made to be a singer, it's heavily autotuned. But it's perfect for a club - that shit gets put on all layers of vocals in mixes. That's personally why I love Body Language so much. 

 

Another underrated is The Redemption by Brooke. It's better than Undiscovered and features bops like Ruff Me up :uhhuh:

 

Discipline by Janet is also one of my faves. It may be my fave Janet CD ever. :crying3:

Paris is one of the most underrated albums in history. It's a very well produced album, pretty much every song could be a single, and she sounds pleasant without a huge deal of autotune. People only hated on it because it was Paris, without even giving it a chance. If it was anyone else I'm sure it would have been a huge hit.

Honestly, Bionic. If you get ride of all the last minute garbage that was added to the track list, your left with some of her best work to date. 

 

Bionic 

Monday Morning

Birds Of Prey

Elastic Love 

I Am

You Lost Me

Little Dreamer 

Stronger Than Ever 

Vanity

hell, even Woohoo is a BOP 

 

This album could have been a critically acclaimed masterpiece had she/label kept focused. Releasing filler of the year NMT with its acompaning MV was the knife in that Albums back and gave people a reason to compare her to Lady Gaga. Had she released something like Monday Morning as the lead it would be a different story. It would have been fresh and ahead of the curve for 2010, seeing how that sound didn't take off till late 2011-2012.

I enjoy the album, but mostly as a guilty pleasure. I don't feel that is overly great, she's not a vocalist and the lyrics are :zoomzoom: but I do love Stars Are Blind, Nothing In This World and Screwed. SAB would have been big had it been somebody other than Paris.

YASSSSS CONFESSIONS.

 

 

For me, I'd have to say, my "underrated" albums are

  • Ashley Tisdale - Guilty Pleasure
    Slayed my life when I was like 14 and it still slays my life to this day 11bn0hz.jpg 
    Bitch has only released one song since but she's now doing youtube covers 11bn0hz.jpg
    I told her to cover DLMBTLTK 11bn0hz.jpg
    If she don't I'ma be mad 11bn0hz.jpg  


     
  • La Roux - Trouble In Paradise
    This was a complicated album that I waited 5 years for and it doesn't sound anything like Bulletproof or In For The Kill or Quicksand 11bn0hz.jpg
    This one is just Elly, she and Ben, her co-producer and the other half of the group "la roux" split, so she continued to work on the album with his permission. So the group "La Roux" went as a solo act, meaning people can now call Elly Jackson "La Roux" and actually be saying it correctly and it bugs the hell out of me but 11bn0hz.jpg
    It' new wave (not vaporwave) and it's also pop at the same time 11bn0hz.jpg
    And it's only 9 tracks long 11bn0hz.jpg


     
  • MACINTOSH PLUS - FLORAL SHOPPE kf3zp5.jpg
    You should know I had to include this one because if I didn't mention vaporwave in a thread about music, it just wouldn't be me, now would it? :queenflopga:
    But this is the album that literally started the "vaporwave" trend. It's going to be forever a part of history :queenflopga:
    And this album is just beyond "strange" or "psychedelic". It's got a weird, strange, warped view on the world.
    It samples songs and you can find the samples in a youtube video that compares the album.
    Either way it's weird as fuck and inspired an entire genre. Beyonce who? 2rzb62q.jpg


     
  • Miley Cyrus and her Dead Petz 1zyfts8.jpg
    Like... People think I'm joking when I say this album is genuinely good, but like, you have to have a psychedelic outlook on life to understand this type of music.
    (I mean, if you don't like the flaming lips or at LEAST Kesha, you probably wouldn't get this album.)
    People think it's just Miley trying to get attention, but this album was released for free, and Miley paid for it herself 11bn0hz.jpg
    And it's just a really personal album with a really good flow and it's not her "being stupid". There's only one song on the album where she's "thug", and it's Dooo it!, which even then is still a masterpiece 11bn0hz.jpg
    And then there is the fucking pop MASTERPIECE that is FWEAKY 11bn0hz.jpg Like it's #2, where dlmbtltk is #1.
    Tbh I feel like you'd probably would have to have dropped acid to get this album 11bn0hz.jpg
    I feel like a slab of butter that is melting in the sun 1zyfts8.jpg  
    Aggression melts away now that you and me are one 1zyfts8.jpg
