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

Ironically enough, this is my favorite RHCP album. - JC_How

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

I'm not really into Rocka Rolla, Turbo, Ram It Down, British Steel and Point of Entry (to answer your second question) - Alkadikce

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.

Edit: The Final Frontier is incredible as well! - Alkadikce

Better than X Factor and No Prayer for the Dying at least. Actually, it's rather good album. - Merkwurdigliebe

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. God Hates Us All is worse - Alkadikce

5 Ummagumma - Pink Floyd

I haven't listened to its entirety but I found it interesting. But I'm generally intrigued by weird musical experimentation. - JoLeKosovo

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

Update: I changed my mind about this. It really is the worst Metallica album if Lulu doesn't count.

Update: I changed my mind again, Load is worse, but St. Anger is still the worst objectively - Alkadikce

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

It's not that bad compared to Lulu

7 Save Rock and Roll - Fall Out Boy

Arguably the last good album of Fall Out Boy before they took the decent from being a respectable band into a trainwreck. I've never been a Fall Out Boy fan, but if I did, I probably wouldn't even bother listening to any albums after this. I've heard Young and Menace before and my ears are still scarred.

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

Yeah, it really is the worst Weezer album. I would honesty rather listen to Raditude. Make Believe has like 1 song that is ever worth listening to.

The Contenders

11 The Ritual - Testament

Hated for the same stupid reasons as Metallica's Black Album (even though the black album has minimal pop elements in my opinion). It's a pretty good attempt at non-metal music just like 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

That's a compil isn't it? - JoLeKosovo

I personally love this album. - Stalin

15 Rise - Skillet
16 Be Here Now - Oasis
17 Epic - Blood on the Dance Floor

I think their albums are equally bad. - Alkadikce

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

18 Reload - Metallica
19 When the Storm Comes Down - Flotsam and Jetsam
20 Indie Cindy - Pixies
