So what albums have you guys had hiding in a cupboard for years, forgotten and unloved, and you recently pulled them out and they were better than you remembered.

To risk ridicule here :-  Stereophonics - Word Gets around.

They seem to me to be a pretty decent band but Just Enough Education to Perform has turned them into the butt of many a joke.

Soundgarden--Superunknown and the soundtrack to the new Psycho movie.

Damn, I'm back in my "metal" phase.

If Soundgarden is metal, then I'm gay.

Rage Against the Machine - Self Titled and The Battle of LA
The Crystal Method - Vegas
Ministry - Psalm 69 (there's your metal.)

Smashing Pumpkins -  Siamese Dream was appreciated a lot more after  the 'We hate/love them' thread a few weeks back made me dig it out.

Word Gets Around, much like Definitely Maybe, is actually a good record. I've been thinking recently about bands that are vastly popular, yet somehow underrated, because people just think "oh yeah, they're a good band", but never listen to their records. For example, New Adventures in Hi-Fi by R.E.M. is one of the best records ever.

my roommate randomly played Matchbox Twenty a few weeks ago, and I got really into it.  Not because their music is especially good but more because of the positive memories attached to when I liked them as a middleschooler.

Psssssst - has anyone heard the new 'phonics single? I can't stand that guy's voice, but it's actually really rather good.

Just been sorting through my music on my computer and found an entire album which sounds like a bizarre cross between King Adora, Pink Grease and some generic shitty emo band - which is all well and good, except I have no idea who the hell it is or where it came from, as I know I haven't downloaded it...

NIN - The Fragile

Actually, I hadn't forgotten about it.  I just always thought it was way too long and convoluted.  

So anyway, last night I finally got around making an edited mix of it.  And I found that if you cut about 60 minutes out of its 104-minute runtime, you can come up with a pretty nifty album.  :)

I found The Members - Sounds of the Suberbs (greatest hits) at the bottom of my wardrobe a few weeks ago. Dont ask how it got there, because I have absolutely no idea. Sounds much better than i remember,

Was listening to my copy of Pan American's self titled album I ordered by half mistake years ago and its pretty good. Its just really minimal electro dub that would barely be loud at max volume.

Good lord, has Matchbox 20 actually been around long enough to induce nostalgia?

As for me, I recently dug out the first Velvet Underground record and liked it a lot more than I remembered. I'd always thought their third album was their best, but now I'm not sure.

They are referred to as "Bush X" in Canada because we already had a band named Bush here.

In middle school, the album I listened to over and over whenever I could was Beck's One Foot in the Grave.

Kind of recently, I listened to it for the first time in something like five or six years.  It was amazing because the songs were good, they made me remember the bittersweet (mostly bitter) things that made songs like 'I get Lonesome' so true, and I knew all of the words.  Then I listened to the other middle school album, Dub Narcotic Sound System's Out of Your Mind, which I'm now sad I lost.

Anyway, yesh, good.
