Generally “discredited” albums you like:

 251 Al The Killer, Fri, 19th Oct '12 7:06:36 AM from The Swamp. Relationship Status: I'm Clockwork and she's Quartz
Eh.
I really like The Year of The Black Rainbow, by Coheed and Cambria. Many fans don't like it, for some reason.

[up]I like it as well. I really wish Chris Pennie had stayed with the band; I like his drumming better than Josh Eppard's.

Amnesiac isn't well liked? I guess it's more of an "overshadowed" album than a "discredited" one - I notice even the most positive reviews on metacritic still basically call it a bunch of Kid A leftovers. The most discredited Radiohead is of course Pablo Honey, which I quite like when I'm in the mood. I'd even say it's got a couple of their best songs ("You" and "Blow Out").

Couldn't agree more, for all the hate 'Pablo Honey' gets I still think it holds up better as a cohesive unit than 'The Bends' or 'Hail To The Thief', and the aforementioned opening and closing tracks stand out in Radiohead history as good 'uns. I'd say 'Amnesiac' is almost as good as 'Kid A'; but I find 'Morning Bell / Amnesiac' rather tedious compared with the inspired pop genius that was the 'Kid A' version of 'Morning Bell', and I think that tilts the scales in 'Kid A's favour.

In terms of albums that I like more than the general consensus one stands out in particular. Blur's '13', which for some strange reason gets an awful press. '13' has to be my 3rd favourite album, losing out only to 'Kid A' and Cardiacs' 'The Seaside'.

No Prayer For The Dying by Iron Maiden. I understand the complaints, but it's only bad by Iron Maiden's lofty standards. Let's face it, bad by Iron Maiden standards is still pretty damned good. Fear of the Dark in the same vein.

I think you'll change your mind if you get the chance to hear them play Afraid to Shoot Strangers live.

Just awesome like that
[up][up]That's a discredited album of theirs? It's the only one I've listened to in full. Plus, I'd think it'd be more popular and regarded considering that it has their most popular song on it.
Insert witty and clever quip here.

love lockdown, you lose.
One of my favorite albums is Fall Out Boy's "Folie a Deux". I'm one of the very few, fan of the band or otherwise, who would say that. I just love bombast, what can I say...

Her Satanic Majesties Request by The Rolling Stone is a pretty good album. Yes, it's a poor man's Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, but it's a pretty good album on it's own.

Also, Standing On The Shoulders of Giants by Oasis is also pretty good. I know a lot of people don't like Who Feels Love but I like it.

Most of the reviews I read for Lee Brice's Love Like Crazy were negative, but I gave it 4 out of 5 when I reviewed it for Roughstock: http://www.roughstock.com/reviews/lee-brice-love-like-crazy-cd-

Thunder, Perfect Mind
[up][up] I thought that most people had already copped to the fact that Her Satanic Majesty's Request is a great album in its own right.
On the topic of the Stones, I really like Emotional Rescue (especially the title track), which is pretty much discredited by even the Stones themselves.

As someone already mentioned earlier, Year of the Black Rainbow by Coheed and Cambria. Same goes for Be Here Now by Oasis and Iron Maiden's Virtual XI.

"Blood! Your precious blood!"
Master's Hammer's clownesque third album Šlágry, considered a massive "fuck you very much" moment by most fans.

"Is this your wife? What a lovely throat."
Yes' Tales From Topographic Oceans.

I sat down to listen to this after reading scathing reviews on it and then hearing my father's view on the album. Personally, it's one of my favourite Yes albums. It blew me away anyway.

But I think this one's a given for me anyway. [lol]

The Tigers- Human Renascence

One of those albums that killed an entire genre...but i love it...the compositions are beautiful and intricate.
For anyone feeling the feels, PM box is open.

From the legendary Iron Maiden:

No Prayer For The Dying

Fear Of The Dark

A Real Dead/Live One (early 90's live albums)

[up]Whenever people say they don't like FotD, I point to Chains of Misery, Be Quick or be Dead, From Here to Eternity and especially Afraid to Shoot Strangers. I saw them play it live, and that riff just resonates with you if you let it.

Also, I think my Favorite Pink Floyd album is The Final Cut. There's a lot of emotion to it, and songs like When the Tigers Broke Free, Southampton Dock and Not Now John, as well as the titular The Final Cut, are awesome!

I actually think Jugulator by Judas Priest is a very good, underrated album. True, not everything on that album works ("Decapitate" stands out as a pretty bad song), but tunes like "Bullet Train", "Cathedral Spires", "Burn in hell", and even "Death Row" are all priest classics IMO.

[up][up] It's probably one of my top three if it isn't my favourite, too.

Never Say Die and Technical Ecstasy by Black Sabbath. I don't love either album, but they're both so frequently out-of-character for the band that I find them interesting. Plus, I feel like "It's Alright" would be a classic rock radio staple if it were, say, a Wings song. *.

Off topic rambleage: Sometime I want to make a mix cd that has the theme of "good but completely out of character" songs - Black Sheep Hits, Surprisingly Gentle Songs, Early Installment Weirdness, one-off bits of Genre Adultery, basically anything that would make someone who's casually familiar with a band say "whoa, that's (insert artist here)?!?"
I support this idea and I think I'll try to make one myself.
