Do you think Natalie Imbruglia is under-rated?

I am listening to some of her tracks on Youtube now and I honestly think this absolutely stunningly beautiful woman is so talented. She is a complete 10 out of 10 for looks that is for sure. Truly, one of the world's most beautiful women.

Left of the Middle in particular is a classic album. Leave Me Alone is as good as most of the singles. It's a pity that the single Want in 2009 was largely ignored and her subsequent album scrapped.

Her 1st album was brilliant and she has released some good tunes over the years but i wouldnt say she was underrated. She needs to step up her game. She was a guest judeg on X-factor in 2010 and came across as dull. She should`ve released her lastest album then whats with delays.
And thats just my opinion!!!

Great artists, great albums! I don't think she's released any bad ones actually.

Loved her as a young teenager in the early 00s but she never bettered herself since Left of the Middle.

White Lillies Island had some nice songs.

Counting Down the Days was good too but nothing spectacular.

I don't think she was under-rated but I would be interested in another album definitely.

I think she's great. White Lilies Island is one of my favourite albums ever! Yes I do think she's underrated. People don't seem to look past her debut album which may have been her most commercial album but (imo) her weakest in terms of song quality. It's a shame she hasn't had as much success in recent years. I hope she does release more albums as I always enjoy listening to her music and voice.

I think her taking such a long time between each album hasn't done her any favours. She's released 5 studio albums in 15 years and I think that's what cost her the big success she achieved with "Left of the Middle". "White Lillies Island" would have done far better had she not mulled over it for 4 years and had it out earlier. I remember her label were unhappy at the time it was taking her to record it and they offered her a bonus if she delivered it sooner.

She's released some great music over the years. It's a shame "Come to Life" wasn't the success it deserved to be as it's a great album. "Lukas" would have made a great summer single.

Just been listening to Identify again and it's one of my favourite songs of hers, the one Billy Corgan wrote. Hauntingly beautiful. Natalie has a lovely voice.

Not sure if her success is underrated as it's seems to have waned as is common for lots of artists! However I do think her voice is underrated. Her voice is simply stunning, so clear & effortless, it reminds me of Karen Carpenters voice!

Not a fan to be honest. I can't warm to her. I did like Torn and Wrong Impression though.

I like the single Shiver and i thought the video was very good as well. I think it was supposed to be based on the Bourne films, although it reminded me of a French spy thriller.

And yet you felt it necessary to mention her looks three different times during your post but didn't give an opinion on her music/lyrics/performances in your op?

I think so. She certainly didn't deserve to have some **** on the X Factor asking her "Who are you??"
