    What commercially unsuccessful albums have you bought at a get-rid-of-them discount only to find that they are great albums and the whole world was wrong?

    I have a few in my collection that come to mind:

    Starclub - Starclub (1993)
    The Grays - Ro Sham Bo (1994)
    Five Guys Named Moe (1990) The Canadian band not the musical
    Stephen Duffy - Music In Colours (1993)

    Nonpoint album (probably "Statement", but i thought at the time it was self-titled) with bonus live 3-song sampler CD, first song was "What a Day", third was a nice remake of Santana's "Evil Ways" with a harder beat than the original. middle song not memorable. i don't remember that any of the songs on the main album were good except "What a Day".

    and:

    actually a lot of hit bands show up in the bargain binds. and if not known to us before, we couldn't really say the world was wrong about them.

    i guess if you really kept up with the scene you could say that, tho.
