Atavanhalen Vs. The World - Underrated 2010

Welcome to the end of 2010, with your host Atavan. Underrated, Best Gigs, Best Albums, Best Songs. Yo VIP - let's kick it.
5Kings of Leon
Come Around Sundown

Y'know, for an album from one of the biggest rock bands in the world, this really didn't seem to get much attention, let alone the attention that it deserved - after several obsessive listens, this falls just short of Youth and Young Manhood as my favourite Kings of Leon record.
4My Chemical Romance
Danger Days: The True Lives of...

Lot of hate for this one, too, even though there was plenty of fun to be had with this record. Really exciting, good energy, thankfully not a carbon copy of TBP - they gave it a red-hot go and I think it payed off.

So this got a fair amount of backlash - and if you were to judge it purely on the singles, you'd probably think it was fair. That said, there was some of Em's best work in years on this record, in particular Talkin' 2 Myself and 25 To Life.

Yes, this is a motherfucker on first listen. When you really get into the music, however, it's something else - at times, so good it's scary.

An album I completely adore that really deserves far more attention than it's gotten from a lot of press.
