I agree with a lot of these. What's the story with Futures though? I never heard of one.
That’s just all old shit, man. Time goes on. The whole Futures thing, when we started making a record with Mark [Trombino], we were nowhere near ready to start making a record. It was an unfortunate result of a lot of bad decisions in the way things ended up. It doesn’t matter. I wouldn’t want to work with people who aren’t extremely passionate about their ideas and their contributions, as long as in the back of your head everyone knows they’re on the same side. Everyone’s trying to make the best song recording possible. Things can get really heated in the battle for that, but in the end everyone’s on the same side.

Muse - Black Holes and Revelations. After Absolution, they had nowhere to go but down, and they found a new stratosphere instead.

Honestly, for me, that album was The Black Parade from MCR. Three Cheers was an eye opener for me and I was praying their next release would be just as epic. Was not disappointed. Oh one more I just thought of! Catalyst from NFG. GREAT album!

The Cab's "Symphony Soldier"

This x100. I expected it to be kind of "eh" since they only had a few good tracks on their debut but boy was I wrong. Such an underrated album.

Blink-182- "Neighborhoods"

Say what you want, but this album is better than a lot of fans give it credit for. "Kaleidoscope," "Wishing Well" and "Even if She Walls" are some really great cuts.
Love this album so much. Didn't disappoint me one bit. It's actually exactly what I expected, and that's sometimes better than getting..an album that you didn't expect to be incredible because you're not letdown at all. Kalediscope will be one of my favorite blink songs

A few that jump to mind for me that I had very high expectations for:

Eisley - The Valley
Emery - The Question
Mayday Parade - A Lesson in Romantics
Paramore - brand new eyes
Relient K - MMHMM
Saosin - Saosin
Underoath - Define the Great Line
Yellowcard - When You're Through Thinking, Say Yes

Define the Great Line would probably be #1 for me. They were already my favorite band at the time, and the hype leading up to that release was pretty insane (video playing on MTV, constant articles and interviews, a leak of the unmastered version, etc). Totally surpassed my already sky-high expectations at the time.
