Top Ten Albums that are Hated on TheTopTens but Have Positive Reviews on Laut.deLaut.de is a German music review website that rarely awards a high star rating and are very often awarding extremely low rating, even if an album is only mediocre. However, the website found these albums to be amazing. Too bad many TopTenners hate them.
The Top Ten
I am guessing from the tone of the intro that these are mostly cases where you agree with Laut. de? Also it interests me that it got such a positive reception do you think that would also reflect it's general status in Germany because all the English language critics seemed to dislike it. I think it is in the top ten lowest rated albums on metacritic. - Powell
Americans hate rock rap in general, and TopTenners hate Lil Wayne.
Germans like the combination because it sounds energetic, and American rappers are generally considered more original than German hip hop.
Laut.de generally praise Wayne for his "lyrical madness" ("lyrischer Wahnsinn") and say that on this more rock oriented album he had the opportunity of going full throttle and letting out all his energy. - Martin_Canine
Laut.de has only reviews two albums by ICP, but both reviews essentially review the duo in general.
They praise the dark carnival concept and say that such a huge and thought out concept is unique in all music history, the humor of the songs, their moral tales, the fact that much of their violent content is actually relatable even if exaggarated, and their general creativity.
Laut.de is not an exception, in German speaking countries ICP have several fans in more serious circles, and while not famous like mainstream artists, have a good reputation. - Martin_Canine
Here we have another case of cultural differences:
In Germany, Kollegah and SpongeBozz made multisyllabic rhyming and an epic sinister tone a thing. While it was originally praised and came off as natural, several used multisyllabic rhymes so forcefully that they ended up sounding like cheap knock offs.
Now trap came across as a counter movement and was more about the flow, being carefree and fun, and not trying too hard to rhyme. Since American rappers are generally considered more original in Germany, they got much praise for it, among them Young Thug and Rae Sremmurd. - Martin_Canine
Laut.de praised the many different musical influences that are united in this album brought together by two different masterful artists.
I don't have much knowledge about that type of music, but I know it is considered the low point of both artists. - Martin_Canine
They praise Nicki Minaj's charisma and her dominance on the beats, repeatedly stating she "rides the beats". They say she sounds majestic and is a born mistress of ceremony. - Martin_Canine
See "Pink Friday". - Martin_Canine
See "Jeffery" by Young Thug. - Martin_Canine
See "The Amazing Jeckel Brothers". - Martin_Canine
The only positive review of a Miley Cyrus album so far.
They praised the experimental nature of the album and the braveness of the release at the peak of her career. - Martin_Canine
The only positive review of a Justin Bieber album so far.
They praised that he matured very much since his last albums and is now more of an artist than a performer, and how self aware he became. - Martin_Canine
