Albums that are Often Considered the Worst of a Band but They are Not

This list is the opposite of HEAVYMETALTHUNDER's list Albums that are Often Considered the Best of a Band but They are Not.

The Top Ten

1 One Hot Minute - Red Hot Chili Peppers

Is this album only hated for the different guitarist? I see nothing wrong with it, it's on par with the bordering albums (Blood Sugar Sex Magik, Californication). - Alkadikce

2 Jugulator - Judas Priest

"Cathedral Spires" is one of my favorite Judas Priest songs. Great vox by Tim "Ripper" Owens. But I would agree that generally, it's Judas Priest's Blaze Bayley era - the only difference is that Tim "Ripper" Owens is a much better singer than Blaze Bayley.
So, if Jugulator isn't the worst Judas Priest album, what is their worst one? Demolition? (currently at #1 on the list Worst Judas Priest Albums) - Metal_Treasure

Judas Priest's Blaze Bayley era - Alkadikce

3 Virtual XI - Iron Maiden

Hated for Blaze Bayley and the endless repetition in some songs. I highly prefer Blaze to Paul Di'Anno (his voice is more manly) and the repetition only destroys 2 of the 8 songs.

The whole album is very catchy and melodic and on the internet I dare to say that I secretly prefer it to The Number of the Beast since I won't get a punch. It contains two of my top 20 favorite Iron Maiden songs, The Clansman and Lightning Strikes Twice.

The worst Iron Maiden album title goes either to No Prayer for the Dying or The Final Frontier for me, both are boring and uninspirational and (in my opinion) their only bad albums. - Alkadikce

I am glad my list inspired you. - HEAVYMETALTHUNDER12345

I might give this a listen. - Userguy44

4 Diabolus in Musica - Slayer

Currently #35 on Top 10 Albums that are the Worst of a Rock Band - Alkadikce

5 Ummagumma - Pink Floyd

Hated only because it's more experimentive and avatgarde. I prefer this album to The Wall, which is too poppy to me. - Alkadikce

6 St. Anger - Metallica

Hated because it has no solos and the snare sound. The latter makes it one of the most recognizable albums in history. I also think that the title track and Some Kind of Monster are among the band's best.

I put it lower because it is hard to pick Metallica's worst album if Lulu doesn't count. Maybe it's Reload. - Alkadikce

7 Save Rock and Roll - Fall Out Boy

I don't know if people still stand by this opinion now that 'MANIA' has been released, still though, this album is considered bad because it's not as rock and roll as the title would have you thinking. But there are some good songs on this album (I'm quite partial to The Phoenix). - SuperSonic17

8 No Fixed Address - Nickelback

I'd have to say their worst album is between Curb, Silver Side Up, or the Long Road

9 Make Believe - Weezer
10 Soundtrack to Your Escape - In Flames

The Contenders

11 The Ritual - Testament

Hated for the same stupid reasons as Metallica's Black Album. It's a pretty good attempt at non-metal music, unlike Megadeth's Cryptic Writings (let's not talk about Risk). - Alkadikce

12 The Spaghetti Incident - Guns N' Roses
13 V - Maroon 5

I don't like the whole band but I think their latest album is even worse. - Alkadikce

14 The Beatles - The Beatles

I personally love this album. - Stalin

15 Rise - Skillet
16 Epic - Blood on the Dance Floor

Unpopular opinion: I love blood on the dance floor's music. I just think Dahive Vanity is a scumbag - Demon_Kitty

I think their albums are equally bad. - Alkadikce

To be honest I don't know why you wasted you're time listening to trash like this - HEAVYMETALTHUNDER12345

17 Reload - Metallica
