    Usually, great "lost" albums would be those which, for whatever reason, don't achieve the critical acclaim or commercial success that they perhaps deserve. Sometimes they are "ahead of their time". I know it's off-topic but in hip-hop I would rate Beastie Boys' "Paul's Boutique" as a great lost album. It was totally out of step with what the public expected, it didn't do very well at the time but many hip-hop people nowadays name it as groundbreaking, influential etc.

    Excellent, Love / Hate are one of my favourite bands. Their lyrics are "interesting", but the music has a very unique style. Check out their website, and find out what happened to them and also find info on their final three albums.

    The latter albums may not be as good as the two you mention, but there are still some classic L/H goodness amongst them.

    yep, i've got all the other love/hate albums and Jizzy's Just A Boy, like you say they all have at least some great tracks. i think the first two and maybe Let's Rumble are the ones most likely to be considered great though. i actually saw these lunatics on tour with Skid Row just before Wasted... came out and they were even madder live than they sound! i'd recommend anyone visit Jizzy Pearl's website, some great stories and anecdotes, you can buy his album and if you go to the love/hate site you can actually download all of their music for free! if i can find Jizzy's url i'll put it in but put his name in google and you should find it okay

    hehe, I saw them around the same time at a small club in Brum. Great night. I only recently heard about Just a Boy, ordered it from Play, but its been out of stock for a while.

    As there don't appear to be any rules I have decided to just include stuff from my collection that I really enjoyed but didn't do much sales wise...

    Danko Jones - Born a lion - hard rocking blues trio
    Fishbone - Truth and soul - mental funky ska
    Vent 414 - S/T - Miles Hunt's first post Wonder Stuff group. Produced by Steve Albini
    Cry of Love - Brother - like Bad Company only better
    Big Yoga Muffin - Wherever you go, there you are - pop, electro, rock and dance fused to perfection
    Lock up - Something bitchin' this way comes - Tom Morello's pre RATM band. Funk rock stuff but with that signature guitar work

    If thats your bag one of the all time underrated hard rock albums IMO is Kerbdog's 'On the Turn' another Irish trio that blend aggression and melody in a similar way. Pure brilliance, akin to Therapy meets Helmet.

    Also the Kyuss admirers, QOTSA were Kyuss more or less! The main songwriter, Josh Homme was in both. Your right though both excellent.

    Another highly recommended underrated rock album is Devin Townsend's 'Ocean Machine - Biomech' such a brilliant album its hard to say just how good it is!

    "On the Turn" is definitely a good one. Also try "Bastinado" by Wilt (basically Kerbdog with a different bassist and a slightly poppier sound).

    My favourite is without a doubt: Something to Write Home About by The Get Up Kids. Perfect melodic songs to my ears. Sort of emo I suppose but not in an angst ridden kind of way.

    Leads me onto This is Really Neat by Crackout which is a sort of heavier version of the above.

    Anyone into punk should also check out 4ft Fingers and for the more adventurous, Capdown.

    A few mentions here of 'greatest rock/metal albums' that got limited airplay at the time (apart from Tommy Vance of course). For me its 'Breaker' by Accept - german 80's metal band, less mainstream than the scorpions. Lead and rhythm guitarists with matching Gibson flying v's, there's a dvd out there, all choreographed & very tongue in cheek but very effective. The lead guitarist, chap called wolf hoffman, went on to make a solo album of classical music covers - I gaurantee you aint't heard nothin' like it - finishes with land of hope and glory!!!

    Not really a great LOST rock album.
    Everyone knows this is a classic and I'm sure it shifted a few copies.
    Still sounds as fresh today as it did on release. Truly awesome album.
