Top Ten Worst Albums by Good Artists

I feel like this is the Ghost Stories of Kasabian. - Rorywilbren
This album is terrible! Although the Title track is awesome.
One Direction have released four chart-topping albums since 2010. They went from being a classic boyband to a more mature, catchy group. Their first album, Up All Night, is pure pop with cheesy songs. However, the songs are sweet and more real, because the band was working hard at the time. However, Take Me Home, their second album, was rushed and the cheesiness turns in to inauthenticity. Their songs and image became manufactured and unrealistic at this time. The hit single "Live While We're Young" was clearly written to attract attention for the band, even though the song and video were fake.
Now the band has matured into accomplished artists, and have left the pain of this album behind.
This is one of the albums with the worst produced beats I have ever heard. Connor tried out a departure from her more soul-oriented sound by replacing it with a pseudo-Britney-esque imagery - you know, trying to sound kinky, creating a bad girl persona and doing some heavy breathing. However, I'm not buying it one second. She tries way too hard while delivering too little. Her voice is too gentle, too nice, not playful enough. On the other hand, one of her first singles was "French Kissing", on which she perfectly fulfilled this album's premise. I widely blame the terrible production for why the album fails at creating a sensual undertone. The cheapest kinds of synthesizers, the trashiest drum machines, the cheesiest stereotypes of EDM, executed on amateur level at best.
It comes to no surprise that the album's best moment is "Still Crazy in Love" - a love ballad. Sarah's always been ahead of the game when it comes to this genre, having a simply angel-like ...more - Martin_Canine
After the first seconds you'll think LaFee plays a prank on you. There's something that sounds like a bass guitar and a terribly cheesy synthetic strings. LaFee sings something about her breaking free over this terribly constructed... let's call it a beat. What she means is breaking free from her old label and management, now starting all over again. And then it kicks in: a parody of EDM. There are kicks and claps and there is this one sample that sounds like you would speed up the synth line of an Aqua song and pitch it up. All of a sudden you realize that you've been halfway through the album. And while you're still wondering if you really picked up the right album (the typical LaFee sound has heavy distored electric guitars, keyboards, piano, choir and overall perfectly blends together gothic-oriented Heavy Metal with catchy teen angst anthems), you come to a point where you kind of understand why LaFee, who once topped the German charts, never released anything ever again after ...more - Martin_Canine
This isn't even a bad album, it's actually good. Sure was produced by Mr. Porter. But it has great songs. Like "Backstabber and Infinite" - Mumbizz01
It's a sad departure from his old electropop and dance sound. Dance floor ready classics like "I'm In Love With Music", "Dance With You", and featured tracks with DJs David Ferera ("Give Me Love Tonight") and Vito V ("Live Tonight") were awesome, and All Night was good, but then, ever since his latest song Baby Ya Right, he's gone downhill. I'm not saying I hate the genres of music he chooses to make, but it's just not the same Lukay I know.
