If there's an underrated artist in this site is Elton John, in the 70's he pulled out a Bowie releasing one great album after another. He hasn't done many interesting things since but with 8 albums (or so) been pretty consistent he is already a legend.

Take a look at the artist rankings and note some of the bands ranked above Elton. It's really rather insulting, he is certainly an underrated artist on this site.

There are 2 Elton's the early seventies version and the M.O.R. Elton of the nineties onwards. The nine studio albums released between 1970-75 are his best. Later albums like Made In England,Songs From The West Coast and his album with Leon Russell are the best of the rest.

Solo por sus discos de los años 70 merece estar en un lugar más alto.

Seems to be one of the more underrated artists/bands on this site. His earlier work was fantastic. Honky Chateau is especially underrated I think. Great from start to finish.

Had Elton John quit before he aligned himself with Disney, re-wrote the lyrics to "Candle in the Wind," suddenly grew hair, and opened the closet door, he'd be one of my all-time favorites. But, for almost twenty years now, he has lost his rocking edge and has slipped into easy-listening hell. Oh, how I miss the Elton John of the seventies. Still, his early body of work contains so much wonderful stuff that it can overshadow his later mess.
