2020's Most Underrated Albums

These are all great albums that flew under the radar, to some extent. To make it on the list, it must have fewer than 50 ratings (as of 11/24/20) and be at least a 3.5/5.
15Blue Oyster Cult
The Symbol Remains


It's easy to cast this album aside and doubt its quality, but you're doing yourself a disservice if you do so. Some of Blue Oyster Cult's heaviest and wackiest songs are on this record.

My rating: 3.5/5

14Yours Truly
Self Care


A very good female fronted pop-punk debut that fans of Tonight Alive and Paramore are bound to enjoy.

My rating: 3.5/5

13Sordid Pink
Sordid Pink


Formerly known as Destiny Potato, this group delivered one of the most unique blends of pop and progressive rock/metal that I've ever heard. It's surely not for everybody, but more people need to give this a chance.

My rating: 3.5/5

12The Atomic Bitchwax
Scorpio


Do you like badass garage rock? Then you have to give this one a try.

My rating: 3.5/5

11I DON'T KNOW HOW BUT THEY FOUND ME
Razzmatazz


The database wiped this album a while back, but it never had a lot of ratings to begin with. Former members of Panic! At the Disco and Falling in Reverse team up to make an unexpectedly good synth pop album.

My rating: 3.5/5

10BRKN Love
BRKN Love


A very solid hard rock album; fans of Royal Blood will probably love it.

My rating: 3.5/5
3 ratings on Sputnik
9Dear Youth
Heirloom


A very solid debut that any fan of emo/pop-punk will find enjoyment in.

My rating: 3.5/5

8Crystal Lake
The Voyages


Though it may not consist of new material, any fan of metalcore would be missing out if they didn't give this a listen.

My rating: 4/5

7Seahaven
Halo of Hurt


The newest album on this list, but my goodness is it good. For those of you who are fans of Brand New (especially their later work), this is for you.

My rating: 4/5

6King Mothership
The Ritual


This is probably one of those "love it or hate it" kind of albums, but it's a very enjoyable theatrical pop-punk/emo album, for those of you who are into that.

My rating: 4/5

5Scarypoolparty
Doom Hologram


Easily one of the most unique genre-bending albums of the year. This isn't his debut, but it was my first exposure, and I'm already a fan.

My rating: 4/5

4Honorary Astronaut
EP001


With how much this site loves Dear Hunter, I'm surprised this didn't get more attention. If you like Casey, then you'll like this EP.

My rating: 4/5

3PRIZM
All Night


Female-fronted synth pop that has a TON of highlights. Hopefully this group only gets more popular with time.

My rating: 4/5

2Tallah
Matriphagy


Although this barely qualifies for the list, Tallah put out one of the best nu-metalcore albums in a long time. Just like 3, I hope they only get more popular with time.

My rating: 4.5/5

1Devon Kay and The Solutions
Limited Joy


Solid and catchy pop-punk with ska influences. More people should really check out this band.

My rating: 4.5/5
