[10 Albums] more Underestimated and Misunderstood that does not deserve the treatment that has received by the critics and the general public since it came to the market or have more critics had more relevant in the world of classic rock. I hope you all can give your lists of discs underestimated ... thanks-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
01.- Preservation Act (1973 & 1974) THE KINKS - In my humble opinion the most abused and misunderstood work of all time. In spite of not being the best work created by Ray Davies, it is still one of the theatrical works with a melodic creativity brutal and very well cohesion musically on all the Act 2. He did not get the idea of making big singles because it was an operetta. It is necessary to differentiate what is an Operetta and discs of conventional songs. And neither is it a question of comparing the songs of the first musical stage of the group, it has nothing to do with one stage with the other stage as they do a great majority. This album in its totality has very nice melodic pieces very versatile. Elegance and aesthetically musical of immense artistic value.. Wonderful play for lovers of the best music. a jewel
02.- Minstrel In The Gallery (1975) JETHRO TULL - You do not have bad reviews, but it does not have the importance of huge album that should deserve. Musically with a very complex melodic and musical structure that becomes a delight for the lover of the best music.
03.- Eldorado (1974) ELECTRIC LIGHT ORCHESTRA - Same as the previous one, it does not have bad reviews but they stay very short. It should be an album remembered by everyone. It's the bad thing about conceptual albums that do not have the same treatment as a conventional album. Loose songs tend to taste more than cohesive albumns without great songs.
04.- Every Good Boy Deserves Favour (1971) THE MOODY BLUES - Wonderful album and barely known by the public in the vast majority. It was his second masterpiece after the brilliant Days Of Future Passed. In full maturity created to achieve some of the peak works of his discography and even contemporary music.
05.- The Who By Numbers (1975) THE WHO - It is not a masterpiece, but it is an album of the hidden ones within the discography of The Who. In my humble opinion it was his last great album.
06.- Queen II (1974) QUEEN - Possibly it is the band's most unknown album and it approaches nude masterpiece. An album with a very complex musical structure but at the same time a musical delight. Wonderful
07.- Demons & Wizard (1972) URIAH HEEP - As an album of the band is not badly considered, but it should be a very considered album within the world of rock, beauty in all their vocal harmonies with touching Operistics and progressive. Musically speaking a gem.
08.- Lace And Whiskey (1977) ALICE COOPER - It is an album also very mistreated by the critic and the public and without being a musical jewel if that is an extraordinary album. Highly recommend.
09.- Red Rose Speedway (1973) PAUL McCARTNEY & WINGS - Album of the most beautiful that can be heard in the discography of Paul. There are not many great songs except My Love, but if you get some beautiful and creative melodies. The album is very well cohesive of beautiful melodies and very achieved and with great meddley of pure beauty. Possibly eclipsed by the huge album "Band On The Run" edited in the same year as the "Red Rose Speedway". That does not remove from a record of much merit.
10.- Oddesa (1969) BEE GEES - A musical jewel that coming from some of the most famous groups in history is very little known today. In fact the first and/or best stage of the Bee Gees their albums are very hidden.
11.- Waiting For The Sun (1968) THE DOORS - Is another great and underrated album, in this album (the third of his career) we find a fascinating tour of extraordinary ballads, beautiful psychedelic pop tunes, fibrous rock songs. The lyrical pop of "Hello I Love You" (a subject that almost entailed a judicial litigation with Ray Davies, in saying that it was a plagiarism of "All Day And All Of The Night", the elegant "Love Street", with A hypnotic combination between organ and piano, or the disturbing "Not To Touch The Earth" are the beginning of an impressive record with classy themes. The suggestive melody lulled by a wailing guitar in "Summer's Almost Gone" next to "Wintertime Love", delicious mix between waltz and pop, the anti-war "Unknown Soldier", where the Doors demonstrate again their little valued melodic talent, "Spanish Caravan", a curious approach from the Doors from Californian acidity to flamenco sound," Yes, The River Knows, "excellent ballad full of style, or the aggressiveness of rock "Five To One" are passages of first-rate music lovers that not even Boring Indian song "My Wild Love" can detract.
12.- New Morning (1970) BOB DYLAN - It was an album that had very good reviews when it came to the market, but does not stop being a cover in his extensive discography, is not really known by the general public. Planet Waves (1974), Blood On The Tracks (1975) and Desire (1976) were more commercial and more recognized, but in my humble opinion were never better works than the New Morning, although they were a trilogy of very good records.
In short, they are huge albums that are not exactly the best albums of their corresponding recordings, except for Eldorado (Electric Light Orchestra), which I think is, the rest are very important works with enormous artistic value, despite not having decent sales.
Pd.: These discs should not be missing in any discotheque of a music lover ........
