A few years ago I came across a review of an album by Fastball which said it was the best thing they had ever done. It made me realize that there are probably a lot of good albums put out by bands that are well past their commercial peak that never get heard beyond fandom. Which albums do you think would qualify?
Even if the piano player can't play, keep the party going.

Failure's recent output comes to mind... 'The Heart is a Monster' and 'In the Future Your Body Will Be the Furthest Thing from Your Mind' were the first things to come to mind.

Cheap Trick - quite a few of their past few have been pretty darn good - “We’re All Alright!” I thought especially good (listen at least twice). I mean, the lyrics are still straight from the teenage heart, but the licks and hooks are there. For me, they went straight down hill post Heaven Tonight, especially in the 80’s when the label wouldn’t let Nielsen write all the tunes - yet the ones he wrote then sucked, so, I guess they were right. Their very best: In Color.
