Underrated Albums

The title is literal. These albums do not have a lot of ratings (under 10), which is a shame because they're all great. I'm gonna keep it brief though.
1Bent Outta Shape
Stray Dog Town


one of my favorite albums ever
2Benny The Jet Rodriguez
Home. Run.


props to hep kat for this one. shame they broke up.
3Future Virgins
Late Republic


Maybe my circle is small but these guys don't seem to be talked about much which is too bad because this is one of the stronger punk albums I've heard in the last 5 years.
4The Sidekicks
Sam


One of the best punk EPs I've heard. They also put on a hell of a show a few days ago opening for the Menzingers.
5Teenage Cool Kids
Denton After Sunset


vocalist is now vocalist of parquet courts, who rock, as do these guys. All 3 albums are worth checking out.
6Toys That Kill
The Citizen Abortion


I know 'fambly 42' got a little bit of recognition on here when it came out in 2012, but their debut is pretty great as well.
7Weston
Got Beat Up


classic 90s pop punk right here...only 8 votes smh
8Bangers
Crazy Fucking Dreams


really solid punk from the UK. This is their best imo.
9David Dondero
South of the South


Why this guy doesn't get more recognition is beyond me, though I know Conor Oberst has been vocal about how he was an influence on him. I first discovered Dondero when he opened for Against Me! in Buffalo, 2007 and 16 year old me was instantly drawn to him. He was dressed like a drifter who just wandered in...I remember his guitar string breaking...and then Against Me! came on and killed it making for one of the best shows I've ever been to.
10Fresh Coats
A Train Wreck Named Desire


I've listened to this one countless times. 8 great melodic punk tracks, about 16 minutes long, that's it. available for free on ifyoumakeit.com
11Shotgun Jimmie
Transistor Sister


One of my favorite songwriters out there, and the man I've seen live the most...Jimmie's a beauty and worth checking out if you're into indie rock/pop/singer-songwriters. This is probably his best.
