    The problem with threads like this is that when you arrive late, a lot of the albums you think of have already been mentioned, so sorry for the repeats.

    Pink Floyd: Meddle, Atom Heart Mother, More

    Genesis: Trick of the Tail, Wind & Wuthering

    King Crimson: In the Wake of Poseidon, Islands

    The Who: Who Sell Out, Isle of Wight

    Rolling Stones: Goats Head Soup

    Velvet Underground: Velvet Underground, Loaded

    Fleetwood Mac: Then Play On, Future Games, Bare Trees

    Sonic Youth: Evol, Daydream Nation

    Wow, and I thought I was the only one in the world who knew of 'Then Play On' and 'Bare Trees'. Excellent albums.

    Philip -
    I concede the point that Fear of Music isn't exactly a neglected album, but it usually gets shoved aside in discussions about the Heads by Remain In Light from an artistic standpoint, and Speaking In Tongues from a commercial standpoint. Now, More Songs About Buildings and Food would be a true "other" album, but I personally don't think it's all that great an album, sooo....
    I'd also throw in with Van Halen's Diver Down. Uneven, perhaps, but a prime example of why I still much prefer the David Lee Roth-era incarnation of the band -- they just seem to be a much more fun gang to listen to. "Big Bad Bill (Is Sweet William Now)" or "Happy Trails" aren't exactly guitar-pyrotechnic barnburners, but that was the point. A nice change of pace from the usual bombast and "crotch-rock" of the era.

    These are my favorites the non-hardcore fans overlook:

    Yes - Going For the One (Especially Awaken).

    Pink Floyd - Animals (Just dig it for some reason)

    Rush - Permanent Waves (Better than anything else IMHO)

    Kansas - Masque

    King Crimson - Discipline

    Also,

    King's X - Gretchen Goes to Nebraska

    Fiona Apple - When The Pawn... (much less popular but soo much better)

    Steve Vai - Flex-Able

    -Mike...

    Rush - Hemispheres

    Usually, 2112, A Farewell.., P Waves, and Moving Pictures get the kudos for being Rush's creative high points (and each has one or more "hit" songs that have gotten airplay on rock stations for 20+ years). However, Hemispheres may be the most accomplished album of the lot in terms of ambition, technique, and philosophical complexity.

    Led Zeppelin - III -

    This is where Zep rose beyond the standard, mindless noodlings of British metallers like Black Sabbath, and became utterly unclassifiable. There has never been a better blend of hard rock and folk music than this album (Sorry, Jethro Tull fans).
