Underrated Bands.

Here's some albums by bands that I think are totally underrated. Kind of self explanitory =]
Magnetic North

This band is probably the best post-hardcore outfit besides thrice that I listen to. These guys do everything so well and have been doing so since the Satellite Years era-2002. These guys recently broke up, and it made me very sad because they had an extremely bright future. Fuck trustkill records. But really, this band is worth listening to, whether it be this album, The Satellite Years, or A Types. All 3 records are outstanding and I think they don't get enough credit.

I mean really... Stephen Wilson, and Aviv Geffen, one of the premier songwriters from Israel joining forces... did you expect it not to be great? Cloudy Now is one of the best songs I've ever heard.
3Brand New
Deja Entendu

This is probably one of the artsiest records that I have ever listened to and that may be a turn off to some people. But the amazing lyrical work of Jesse Lacey and the great backup of the band, not to mention some songs that are just amazing (The Quiet Things That No One Ever Knows is one of the few songs that I consider perfect). Definitely worth checking this record out.
4 The Fall Of Troy

This cd, like most of these has a pretty high rating overall on sputnik, but it's just SO good. A lot of people just wave their hand and say well the Ghostship Demos were better. I think this is TFOT at their best, and is better than Manipulator no contest. The guitar work on here and the progressive elements as well as the downright experimentalism on this album make it really shine.
5 Thrice
The Alchemy Index Vols. I-IV

I'm going to get a shitload of hate for this and I know it. But I think this is one of the most important releases of modern music to come about in the past 5-10 years. It's just beautifully executed and pushes the envelope of what we think of as music today. Doesn't get enough credit and people always say it is overshined by Vheissu.
