The 20 most underrated R&B albums of all time


No. 9 Van Hunt (2004) by Van Hunt

Another quiet banger is Van Hunt’s debut album full of impeccable melodies, heartfelt lyrics and varied musical soundscapes. From the Beatlesque piano pop of “What Can I Say (For Millicent)” to the slow burning “Seconds of Pleasure” to the surging enthusiasm of “Hold My Hand,” Hunt showed that he was a songwriter of the highest order, with enough panache to make even treacly records sound compelling.
