Worst Albums of 2016


The Contenders: Page 2

21 This is Acting - Sia This is Acting - Sia
22 Train Does Led Zeppelin II - Train Train Does Led Zeppelin II - Train

If Train is comparing their crappy adult contemporary to a mediocre rock band with 20+ cases of plagiarism then they need to break up. - Swellow

23 Unleashed - Skillet Unleashed - Skillet
24 Dystopia - Megadeth Dystopia - Megadeth

Better album than Super Collider, but not that great to be honest. They haven't released anything outstanding since Countdown to Extinction, which was 24 years ago. - IronSabbathPriest

I hate voting for this, but seriously it wasn't bad at all. - Elina

I honestly prefer Dream Theater's The Astonishing.

25 Star Wars Headspace - Various Artists Star Wars Headspace - Various Artists

While Flying Lotus, ATTLAS and Bonobo do bring some good songs to the table, they don't distract me from the fact that this is a sluggish, gruelling and long compilation with the only connection to Star Wars being the obnoxious speech samples. - ArchAces

Flying Lotus, Baauer, Galantis, Bonobo, ROYKSCOPP and ATTLAS all provide solid numbers here. The rest... 5/10 - ProPanda

26 My Wild West - Lissie My Wild West - Lissie
27 Sremmlife 2 - Rae Sremmurd V 1 Comment
28 Taking One for the Team - Simple Plan Taking One for the Team - Simple Plan
29 E.A.R.T.H. - B.O.B
30 Waves - Kanye West
31 Adore Life - Savages Adore Life - Savages
32 Collage - The Chainsmokers Collage - The Chainsmokers V 1 Comment
34 For All Kings - Anthrax For All Kings - Anthrax

This and Dystopia shouldn't be here - Metalmaniakkk

35 Things Our Bodies Used to Have - Good Willsmith
36 Bewährung Vorbei Ep - Fler

In the early 2000s Fler was one of the pioneers that made German rap big. He is technically very limited, but his gangster rap was dark and atmospheric, and most of all creative and original. He had a distinctive style.
Now it's 2016 and he released 5 tracks with a duration of 15 minutes all together, all of which sound exactly like Drake. Same flow. Same beats. Same pronounciation. The only difference is that he raps in German. And with worse lyrics. Drake raps about personal things, relationships, feuds and his childhood. Fler raps about fellow rapper Kollegah's (arguably Germany's number one rapper of the 2010s) lack of realness. Yeah, Fler. Tell one of the most original and skilled German rappers about being real while copying a successful and well known superstar. Sure. - Martin_Canine

37 All Grown Up - Brokencyde
38 Hardwired... to Self-Destruct - Metallica Hardwired... to Self-Destruct - Metallica

Oh come on, someone already added this? This isn't even the worst rock comeback album I've heard this year. Not by a long shot. The first disc is pretty good, though the second one has way too much filler (though that last track is great). - Zach808

39 Views - Drake Views - Drake

Boring and generic music by a rapper who is at this point a lost cause. Drake needs to find a new occupation as it's very obvious he can no longer rap without making other artists look like embarrassments. - Swellow

Between the hollow One Dance, the sludgy Pop Style, the whiny Hotline Bling, and the straight-up reprehensible Child's Play and Feel No Ways, this album is an utter trainwreck. There are about two or three songs that are decent (nothing special though), but other than that... - WonkeyDude98

If you ignore Too Good, Hotline Bling and maybe One Dance. This is a decent 7/10. - AlphaQ

Why are DJ Snake's Encore, Sims' More Than Ever, and Saor's Guardians higher than this? - ProPanda
