|Overlooked, Underrated, and Underappreciated Pt. 2|
Part 2 of my dive into obscure alternative music that mostly originates from the 90's
Apparently this album is Ben Gibbard's favorite album of all time?
Under the Western Freeway
|3||The High Llamas|
These guys are criminally ignored on this website. More beach boys worship but i love every overblown second.
|4||Super Furry Animals|
Fuzzy, scuzzy, filthy power pop.
|5||The Flaming Lips|
The Soft Bulletin
So...these guys are actually good? Who'da thunk.
You're Awful, I Love You
Not 90's, but criminally underrated nonetheless. Catchy, morbid, and bleeding with moog synthezisers and melodica, I am all over this.
Sad and pitiful. I like it.
This Year's Model
Not 90's. Like the cars, but cooler.
|5 is essential. Though I'm not sure they are Overlooked/Underrated/Underappreciated.|
|* Trashcan Sinatras -- "Cake"|
|Yeah, Flaming Lips have a lot of acclaim. |
|5 is amaze but not underatted at all|
|edit: oh my bad .... *|
|no way anything by elvis costello or the flaming lips could really be that underrated|
|I know literally no one who even knows who either of them are. I assumed they were underrated because I've heard so little about them. Here too. Not a lot of convo on either.|
|High Llamas are great. Best song is Checking In, Checking Out|
|1 was big|
2 was under the radar big
3 was underground big
4 was big
5 was bloody big
6. Never heard of it
7 was critically big (album is one of the best ever)
8 was massive
Nice list though.
|I low key hate 5 but cool list!|
|list got me light headed|
strapping myself into a diving bell for part 3
|Demon of the Fall|
|Yeah, I don't know where you're getting this info from but most of these were big/very big. Essentially if an artist gets attention from mainstream press & has the attention of the average music fan (who doesn't frequent music websites daily) then they're big.|
I do find the number of ratings on Sput weirdly disproportionate in a lot of cases, so don't pay attention to that.
