Top Ten Albums You Like But People Seem to Hate


The Top TenXW

1No Prayer for the Dying - Iron Maiden

Includes classics such as Mother Russia, Run Silent, Run Deep and the Title Track. - IronSabbathPriest

This album is #28 on the best Iron Maiden Albums list. Behind all the live albums, EP's, and singles, and why? It's not bad, why do people keep saying that? - Songsta41

2Falling Into Infinity - Dream Theater

A good album. Peruvian Skies, Hollow Years, Lines in the Sand and Trial of Tears are all awesome songs! - IronSabbathPriest

Pretty good, it's just not Dream Theater standards! - CastlevaniaFanboy128

3St. Anger - Metallica

It is not their best but people confuse that with it being a bad album. It's a good album, stop saying negative things about it just because it is the lesser music of a great band! - Songsta41

4Headless Cross - Black Sabbath

The title track is so awesome. - IronSabbathPriest

Black Moon is an amazing song.

Black Sabbath stuff of the 80s is very underrated, not only this album. - Metal_Treasure

5Turbo - Judas Priest

Again, people say it is glam. When it's actually not that bad. - IronSabbathPriest

I may not like glam which this album isn't really glammy. But this is in my top 10 judas priest albums

6Chinese Democracy - Guns N Roses
7...And Justice for All - Metallica

Their Black Album is hated but this one... Hated for what? - Metal_Treasure

Yeah, it is very loved among fans - gemcloben

An all time favorite in my books. - McKing1003

This Is My Favorite Metallica Album. - FettiMC

8Tales from the Twilight World - Blind Guardian

@IronSabbathPriest - long long ago (maybe 300 days ago) I submitted a similar comment but as you see it's still not available. Actually about 50% of my comments never appear and it causes problems on my own lists, too, when some items need descriptions but they don't appear. - Metal_Treasure

Wait, people hate this album? It's not their best at all but there are many great songs! - IronSabbathPriest

I think these songs are great - Lord of the Rings, The Last Candle, Welcome to Dying, Traveler in Time.
Blind Guardian is really a great band if their least appreciated album has songs like these ones. - Metal_Treasure

9With Teeth - Nine Inch Nails
10Bark at the Moon - Ozzy Osbourne

The Contenders

11Slaves and Masters - Deep Purple

I guess people hate it because they don't hear Ian Gillan vox. I agree that classic Deep Purple is with Ian Gillan but it doesn't mean the album is not good.

There are some very cool songs on this album:

The Cut Runs Deep, King Of Dreams, Fortuneteller, Love Conquers All. - Metal_Treasure

12Metallica (The Black Album) - Metallica

Hated by metal fans and loved by non-metal fans. Why hated? - sellout issue...
I am a metal hardliner and I don't like what Metallica did (changed their sound from thrash to less thrash and to just heavy metal).
But I also think that the album itself is great and I love each and every song on it. - Metal_Treasure

13Yield - Pearl Jam
14Machina/The Machines of God - Smashing Pumpkins

Stand inside your love is such a beautiful song

15Stranger In Us All - Rainbow

The last Rainbow album, 1995. No bad songs here - great riffs and melodies from Ritchie Blackmore, and vocals from Doogie White (considered as Bruce Dickinson's replacement but lost out to Blaze).
Hall Of The Mountain King, Silence, Ariel, Cold hearted woman, Black Masquerade, Still I'm Sad.

Pay special attention to the song 'Hunting Humans (Insatiable)' - this is a unique piece with its musical dialogue between the guitar and the singer. I've never heard such a beautiful thing before. I also like the whisper at the very end "Don't cry".

The second half of 'Hall Of The Mountain King' is awesome.
Every song sounds different and I love that. - Metal_Treasure

16Long Live Rock N Roll - Rainbow
17There Is Nothing Left to Lose - Foo Fighters
18Jugulator - Judas Priest

Cathedral Spires is one of my all time favorites. Epic song with great vocals from Tim Ripper. - Metal_Treasure

19Antichrist Superstar - Marilyn Manson

Probably Manson's best album and one of the best (if not the best) Industrial Metal albums of all time. Like the other dude said its hated because it has Antichrist in the title so of course ignorant Christians are gonna protest against it without even bothering to find out why its called Antichrist Superstar or bothering to find out the meaning behing the songs. - ComaWhite21

People hate it because it has Antichrist in the title. So people think you're a satanist if you like this album. Which is really stupid.

In this case, never judge an album by it's cover. Especially this one.

20Power Metal - Pantera

People don't like the album because it is pre Cowboys From Hell, and is glam metal. - IronSabbathPriest

I completely agree.
The cover art is a bit misleading - yes, they look so glam and silly. But music inside is not typical glam and for that reason it's not bad. This was their transitional album - from glam to groove (Cowboys from hell came out after this album).
One of my most favorite speed metal songs is from this album - 'Burnnn!'.

This song is just awesome - riff, solo, speed and Anselmo's amazing non-harsh vocals (he hits Halford-esque high notes). - Metal_Treasure
