I find it saddening when a band releases an album and it gets so much hate, simply due to the fact that it wasn't the exact thing the fans and critics wanted at that time.
So, here are some albums I feel should get a little respect.
1. David Bowie - "Young Americans"
Bowie's one and only disco-funk experiment record actually isn't bad. It's still definitely got a nice sound to it, though it doesn't sound anything like "Ziggy Stardust."
2. Iron Maiden - "Somewhere In Time"
Why is this album never on the top anything list of any metalhead? I mean, come on, WASTED YEARS!
3. KISS - "Carnival of Souls: The Final Sessions"
Yes, this is the infamous KISS grunge rock record that Gene Simmons didn't want released, as the band was trying to become a nostalgia act. It's pretty fun and has the only Bruce Kulick lead vocal ever.
4. Black Sabbath - "Born Again"
The group of musicians on this album was originally going to be called something other than Black Sabbath and that might have been a good idea, as "Born Again" sounds the least like Black Sabbath of any of the 19 albums in the bands studio discography.
