Greatest Overlooked Rock Music

A Listmania! list by nb (golden, co)
The list author says: "This is a list of 10 albums that from start to end have great songs that have been, to some extent, overlooked by the public. I don't want these albums to ever be forgotten."
Headless Children
1.  Headless Children by W.A.S.P.
The list author says:
  "Discovered this band when ZRock was broadcasting on the radio in the early 90s. Fantastic songs; however, the bass guitar is weak in the production."
Used & New from: $4.22

Straight Between the Eyes
2.  Straight Between the Eyes by Rainbow
The list author says:
  "Much more commercial than the Dio led Rainbow. Joe Lynn Turner was a great replacement on vocals."
$5.98   Used & New from: $1.47
4.1 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (37 customer reviews)

Back for the Attack
3.  Back for the Attack by Dokken
The list author says:
  "Dokken's best album, unfortunately, before they broke up."
$7.07   Used & New from: $0.99
4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (104 customer reviews)

Moontan
4.  Moontan by Golden Earring
The list author says:
  "This album only has 5 songs, which are intricate and long. It took a few listens to fall in love with it. The songs are so good that Radar Love might be the worst song on the album!"
$9.99   Used & New from: $3.03
4.9 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (72 customer reviews)

Lights Out
5.  Lights Out by UFO
The list author says:
  "Absolutely the best guitar work from Michael Schenker combined with one great song after another. Guitar solos on "Lights Out" might be the best of Schenker's career."
$16.95   Used & New from: $5.13
4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (91 customer reviews)

Secret Treaties
6.  Secret Treaties by Blue Oyster Cult
The list author says:
  "Right before BOC hit the mainstream. "Astronomy" is one of their finest songs."
$12.95   Used & New from: $0.95
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (100 customer reviews)

Lovedrive
7.  Lovedrive by Scorpions
The list author says:
  "First Scorpions album without Ulrich Roth. All great songs."
$7.27   Used & New from: $2.77
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (70 customer reviews) | 2 customer discussions

Free-For-All
8.  Free-For-All by Ted Nugent
The list author says:
  "Ted booted Derek St. Holmes for part of this album and replaced him with Meatloaf. Ted sings only one song on this album, which is generally a good thing."
$4.75   Used & New from: $1.98
4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (39 customer reviews)

Bridge of Sighs
9.  Bridge of Sighs by Robin Trower
The list author says:
  "Robin Trower didn't have a lot of good albums, but all of the stars aligned on this one."
$19.83   Used & New from: $8.28
4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (231 customer reviews) | 3 customer discussions

Rocks
10.  Rocks by Aerosmith
The list author says:
  "At this point in my life, Aerosmith was by far my favorite band. Their first 6 albums were great, but this was my favorite."
$6.99   Used & New from: $2.88
4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (213 customer reviews) | 2 customer discussions
