Last week, with a tasty and tempting €25 Golden Discs voucher on offer, I asked for your favourite underrated/obscure gem from the Noughties (2000-2009)?
The response – your incredible entries – created another unforgettable playlist of overlooked masterpieces.
Sadly, there could be only one winner.
Trains by Porcupine Tree
Rosette Of Sirius writes:
‘It’s one of those songs that you wish you could hear for the first time over again….
And if you’ve never heard of [Porcupine Trees’ founder] Steven Wilson, he’s quite possibly one of the most underrated recording artists ever. His production values, arrangements and his exploration of multi channel and high resolution audio produces some of the best recorded music I’ve ever heard.’
So Weit Wie Noch Nie by Jurgen Pappe

‘A 2002 song by German electronic musician Jürgen Paape The great memories I have from this warm, smooth piece of musical art and the lovely voice that makes it so nice.’
More Than Everything by Bombay1
Clampers Outside writes:
‘I believe I have a genuine find in this beautifully minimal track from the 2005 album Strobl by Bombay1….
A genuinely unique minimal sound, the pluck of the cello sets a wonderfully slow pace, coupled with a simple piano accompaniment, and the vocal, that gentle soul bearing, bitter sweet vocal. I honestly struggle to hold back a tear on every listen… melancholic, yet full of warmth .
Oh…. and the video is a simply perfect match…. and contains nudity, a la skinny dipping…Stop that, its very tastefully done :)’
