|Atari's 2015: Overlooked and Underrated|
rather than just doing a generic AOTY list, I'm going with my favorite "underrated' albums of 2015. These are all great, but none of them really got the attention they deserved.
|1||Downfall of Nur|
Umbras de Barbagia
My pick for most overlooked release of the year and overall my favorite bm release of 2015.
|2||In Cauda Venenum|
In Cauda Venenum
another great bm release that was sadly overlooked by most of the site
|3||Red City Radio|
Red City Radio
overlooked punk with gruff vocals. a bit more poppy than their previous work, but just as enjoyable
|4||Sangre de Muerdago|
O Camino das Mans Valeiras
I feel like there were several great overlooked neofolk albums in 2015 but this one is especially good
Momenta Quintae Essentiae
first Nhor album I heard. came out pretty recently and didn't get much exposure. really nice piano work on this one
Zamknely Sie Oczy Ziemi
this should be on more end of the year lists honestly. experimental drone folk whatever you wanna call it, it's great
another excellent but overlooked neofolk album
other than downfall of nur, this is the 2nd best overlooked bm release of 2015 imo. fans of Panopticon should definitely check it out!
it might just be an EP, but considering it's the frontman of Captain, We're Sinking, I'm surprised it didn't get hardly any exposure
|10||You, Me, And Everyone We Know|
another overlooked EP for fans of Say Anything
I Feel Weird
nothing terribly original but a fun listen.
|12||The Early November|
I guess it got a fair amount of attention but still deserves to be on more EOTY lists.
one of the most overlooked emo/punk releases of 2015. It's great and there's a lot of variety. I recommend the closing track.
|14||Versus The World|
underrated band/underrated album
came out pretty recently but deserves more recognition. props to manosg for reviewing this one. great bm
You Were Never Alone
waaay better than their last album so surprised sput seemed to generally ignore this one. nothing groundbreaking but fans of their older work may be pleasantly surprised
I think the last time I checked this had like 3 votes. come on people, Finland's nest rules. album is highly minimalistic but worth checking out for any fan of instrumental music
|18||Dan Andriano in the Emergency Room|
great follow up to the alkaline trio vocalist's debut
