65 Jay-Z - Vol. 3-Life & Times of S. Carter Jay-Z - Vol. 3-Life & Times of S. Carter

No one seems to remember just how bad this really was. The only good songs on the album are "So Ghetto" and "Big Pimpin".
Ohh and he got at 50 Cent on "its hot" that was classic. Those are the only good parts of the album.

66 David Bowie - Never Let Me Down David Bowie - Never Let Me Down V 1 Comment
67 Pink Floyd - A Momentary Lapse of Reason Pink Floyd - A Momentary Lapse of Reason

Pink Floyd always stood incredibly high before Roger Waters wasn't part of the tower's fundations anymore. It toppled back then. -

69 Metallica - Load Metallica - Load
70 Usher - Raymond V. Raymond Usher - Raymond V. Raymond
71 Duran Duran - Red Carpet Massacre Duran Duran - Red Carpet Massacre

Worse than liberty... And that's really saying something!

72 Iron Maiden - Virtual XI Iron Maiden - Virtual XI
73 The Smashing Pumpkins - Zeitgeist The Smashing Pumpkins - Zeitgeist

I will agree that this album is probably the worst in the Smashing Pumpkins discography but they're are a handful of relatively good songs here and there. Worth a listen every now and then.

I like the smashing pumpkins but this was a very disapointing album and its a shame that this is sure to be there last album.

What are you talking about this was amazing

74 Nickelback - Curb Nickelback - Curb

When did Nickelback become a "Good Artist"?

Whoever hates me cause I like nickelback is ridiculous but after all the right reasons they started to go mainstream and this album is good if you like grunge

75 Original Me - Cascada Original Me - Cascada

I normally love Cascada and I tried so hard to like these songs, I... Just... Couldn't. Please don't be offended if you like it, I just don't enjoy this type of stuff.

76 Van Halen - Diver Down Van Halen - Diver Down

Anything after Fair Warning is just awful.

77 Yes - 90125 Yes - 90125

Not bad, just a bit overrated. - IronSabbathPriest

79 Coldplay - A Head Full of Dreams Coldplay - A Head Full of Dreams

At first I was a bit excited for this album, but the red flags immediately started flying when I saw the cover. I then did my research and found out it was produced by the same people who produced most of Rihanna's and Katy Perry's albums. I still wanted to keep an open mind, so I listened to Adventure of a Lifetime and I was done. Coldplay had officially sold out.

At least Ghost Stories was something different, not just a copy of an album that they've done before.

80 The Clash - Cut the Crap The Clash - Cut the Crap

Joe Strummer is spinning in his grave...
