Top 10 Albums that Haven't Aged Well


The Top Ten

1 The Emancipation of Mimi - Mariah Carey

Not a fan but I disagree - RobertWisdom

2 Survivor - Destiny's Child

It's really popish but I'd say it holds up. - RobertWisdom

Destiny's Child's songs haven't aged well at all - they were all just generic song at the time of release and are even worse now.

"Emotions" was an amazing album, it's three singles are some of the best in Mariah's catalogue - it was heavily inspired by 70s and 80s music - stuff that is coming back into fashion now.

3 The Blueprint III - Jay-Z

Was never a good album. Jay-Z is rather overrated. - RobertWisdom

4 Destiny Fulfilled - Destiny's Child

It's just not a good album. - RobertWisdom

Glad somebody agrees with me on this, I only like their first two albums. - DaWyteNight

5 Butterfly - Mariah Carey

This album is held so highly by the lambs and they would probably go on a 5 hour rant if anybody says anything bad about it, but it doesn't seem like anything that special to me. Mariah's voice wasn't at it's best on this album, and the song quality wasn't that great. - DaWyteNight

6 Emotions - Mariah Carey

One of the weakest albums by M. Carey - Alexandr

Na, this was one of Mariah's better albums. Her 2000's stuff is mostly unlistenable. - DaWyteNight

7 Tha Carter - Lil Wayne

The Carter II >>> - DaWyteNight

8 Take Care - Drake

Even when I was a Drake fan I was disappointed with this album. - DaWyteNight

9 Tha Carter 3 - Lil Wayne

I don't see how some people call this a classic or "Lil Wayne at his best" - DaWyteNight

10 A Girl Like Me - Rihanna

Not a fan of Rihanna but "Break it Off" is still a great song. - RobertWisdom

The Contenders

11 Mariah Carey - Mariah Carey

Probably Mariah Carey's best album. - DaWyteNight

12 Kiss of Death - Jadakiss

Wrong. - RobertWisdom

13 The College Dropout - Kanye West

Looks cheesy - Maddox121

Liked this album in 2004 but not now - Alexandr

It just sounds like little kids trying to make music now that I listen to it.

Used to like it, but not anymore. High pitched sampling just hurts my ears.

14 Watch the Throne - Kanye West
15 Daydream - Mariah Carey

Mariah Carey's discography as a whole is pretty...disappointing (in my humble opinion) - DaWyteNight

16 Off the Wall - Michael Jackson

Hahaaahahaa! Great Joke! :-D - RobertWisdom

MJ is the king, no doubt but the album isn't interesting anymore (at least for me) - Alexandr

Timeless! Great vocals, production, and absolutely destroys the music of today. - RobertWisdom

Hell no it still sounds good to this day - DaWyteNight

17 My Way - Usher

It's a classic. I'm still bumpin' "You Make Me Wanna" - RobertWisdom

It was okay but it kinda falls into that generic late 90's r&b style and Usher's voice hadn't fully developed yet to stand out. - DaWyteNight

18 Exclusive - Chris Brown
19 It's About Time - Christina Milian
20 Hybrid Theory - Linkin Park
21 Ten Thousand Fists - Disturbed
22 A Night at the Opera - Queen

Got to be kidding - Maddox121

23 Kid A - Radiohead
24 Life After Death - The Notorious B.I.G.

Nope. - RobertWisdom

25 Rainbow - Mariah Carey

A few decent songs but a lot of filler - DaWyteNight

26 Good Kid, M.A.A.D City - Kendrick Lamar

This is not even old! - JoLeKosovo

27 Chris Brown - Chris Brown

I liked this when I was younger, but now it honestly isn't that great (except for Ya Man Ain't Me and Say Goodbye.) The rest is just your standard pop-r&b, catchy but nothing special. - DaWyteNight

28 In a Perfect World... - Keri Hilson

In a perfect world this album wouldn't have been made. - DaWyteNight

29 Love vs. Money - The-Dream

He should stick to producing other people's songs - DaWyteNight

He sucks anyway

30 Kiss tha Game Goodbye - Jadakiss

Kiss the Game Goodbye? How about "Kiss the Kiss Goodbye", because nobody in their right mind should be forced to listen to the whole CD.

31 Justified - Justin Timberlake

Nonsense! This album was always ahead of it's time. - RobertWisdom

Na this was a good album and much better than what he releases nowadays. - DaWyteNight

32 Dizzy Heights - The Lightning Seeds
33 Armed Forces - Elvis Costello
34 Smells Like Children - Marilyn Manson
35 Portrait of an American Family - Marilyn Manson
36 Antichrist Superstar - Marilyn Manson

Don't get me wrong people, it's a really great album. But most of the studio vocals are pretty bad. In a few songs Manson sounds like he's whispering into the mic.

37 ... Baby One More Time - Britney Spears

Britney Spears hasn't aged well in general. - DaWyteNight

38 Recovery - Eminem
39 Sounding the Seventh Trumpet - Avenged Sevenfold
40 Charmbracelet - Mariah Carey
41 We are the Streets - The Lox

Who in their right mind would ad this Hip-Hop classic? - RobertWisdom

42 The Slim Shady LP - Eminem

I hate Eminem but come on. Get this off the list. - RobertWisdom

43 Money, Power, Respect - The Lox

Alright, the trolls are out. - RobertWisdom

44 Goodies - Ciara

Ciara has a sweet voice that works in her more upbeat songs, but she honestly can't hold down an entire album with her limited range on her own. - DaWyteNight

45 The Marshall Mathers LP - Eminem

I'm an Eminem hater and even I say get this off the list. - RobertWisdom

46 A Gangster and a Gentleman - Styles P

This is a troll item. - RobertWisdom

47 My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy - Kanye West
48 Intuition - Jamie Foxx

Way too much autotune and filler tracks. - DaWyteNight

49 We are Young Money - Young Money

It's just a bad album in general. - RobertWisdom

50 The Black Album - Jay-Z

This was one of Jay's better albums. - DaWyteNight
