What are your favorite albums that no one knows about?

What are some albums you love that no one seems to know about?


Here's a recent example for me





Barring the fact that this is one of the worst cover arts I've ever seen, I was blown away by how good this was relative to the amount attention it's gotten since 2008. IMO this is not only one of the better big beat albums, but it's also an extremely solid hip-hop album -- two genres that don't always mix very well. The album has no reviews online, and I haven't seen any discussion about it anywhere when googling the album. I found out about it on Deezer. The artist isn't very well known at all outside of the underground circuit, despite having a huge catalog of albums to his name.




^ Some of the songs could've been solid club bangers had they gotten more attention.


So what say you guys?

Re: What are your favorite albums that no one knows about?

This is probably the most obscure album on the list. Reminds me of a beat driven Pere Ubu or The Pop Group (to check the latter comparison, listen to the album Citizen Zombie... some three decades after Touch and Let Go).

Other Highlights: I Need You; Only in the Night.


Lesley Woods is the Janis Joplin of post-punk. Incredible voice (listen to Pretty Boys, Peel Session version). Paul Foad and Jane Munro are terribly underrated musicians (Gang of Four comparison fits). Feminism done well.


Other Highlights: Come Again; Set-Up


The Ruts, The Crack. Only the one album. The drug overdose of Malcolm Owen put an end to them. Returned as The Ruts D.C, but I do not consider it the same band. Owen was it.


Other highlights: Jah War (did the reggae thing much better than The Clash); Babylon's Burning.


Spoiler for Momus' Circus Maximus:
Music nerd-cum-journalist-cum-obscure pop prince. Here, he's a pared-down Bowie. And he sure puts some effort into his lyrics

Other Highlights: Paper Wraps Rock; The Lesson Of Sodom (According To Lot)


Spoiler for The Bodines' Played:
The closest any band got to The Smiths' jangle and warble, while taking their own spin (Push Kings, Hurricane #1, The Housemartins... all rate a mention).


Note: Second song (I Feel) not on Played.
Other Highlights: Skankin' Queens; Scar Tissue


Spoiler for Jandek's Ready for the House:
His prolific output gets a bit repetitive, but the debut album is a singular masterpiece

Other Highlights: Cave in on You; They Told Me I Was a Fool


Moondog's Moondog (1969), James Chance's Buy, Rip Rig + Panic's God...

Not sure what fits and what doesn't.

Re: What are your favorite albums that no one knows about?

Hello I think have a favorite album that people might not of heard is The Very Best Of The Gentry's - Cinnamon Girl.

I like the track He'll Never Love You the vocals are good it is one of favourite song of all time
https://my.mail.ru/mail/churilovoleg...172/14793.html


cinnamon girl also has good vocals


Their cover of wild world is als good.


The lead singer on the later track is amazing after 1968.

This was all before the loud jackets and megaphone.


Yours

Unless there are some UK hiphop fans here then I doubt many people will have heard of some of these... (non UK hiphop fans should definitely give them a listen though, we got some ill heads out here.)

Never heard this album, but I know of Kyza Smirnoff via a collab that he did with Cyrus Malachi on Ancient Future. He's dope, and has good chemistry with Cyrus on the track in question (Slang Blade).


The UK hip-hop scene is stacked right now. EDIT - Speaking of: I've been getting into Liltle Simz a lot in the last month, I predict that she's going to blow up soon. The girl is only 24 but raps as if she was in her mid 30s, and she started dropping hot mixtapes at the age of 19.

I guess doom metal band Murkrat is fits the criteria. It is very much a solo act, I really enjoyed her self-titled debut which I found by coming across the first song she released called "Believers"...



Enjoyed the whole album and also her follow up as well the work she has done with her other band The Slow Death (which isn't very popular either). Here is my favorite song from her second album Drudging The Mire...




Black Mare would be another one, Sera Timms's vocals are enchanting and I've been following her work across different projects for a while now.



Both very underrated I'd say.

I'll probably add more later since I am still trying to gauge what exactly constitutes "nobody knows about"

Re: What are your favorite albums that no one knows about?

The main one is Sixteen Stone by Bush. While widely known in the US, it’s surprising how Bush and that album especially are quite obscure in Britain. Despite being a British band (IIRC they only had one moderate hit here). My favourite song from the album is Comedown. It featured some of the band’s most major hits like the aforementioned Comedown, as well as Glycerine, Everything Zen, Little Things and Machinehead. The album also features numerous underrated jems like Bomb, Body and Alien.

Also ‘Hope Is Important’ by Idlewild. Idlewild are generally only known for their 2002 studio album. However, I’ve always loved their 1998 debut record. Great raw, abrasive sound influenced by grunge and hardcore punk. Favourite tune from the record is ‘4 People Do Good’.

Anyone else a fan of The Jesus Lizard? I always loved JL’s 1991 release ‘Goat’. Despite not being very well known, the album, produced by Steve Albini, would be an influence on later works. Especially some of the other examples of records produced by Albini like Nirvana’s ‘In Utero’ or Bush’s ‘Razorblade Suitcase’. In general, it’s a great noise-rock album. South Mouth is the best track IMO.
