Albums That Haven't Aged Well


The Top Ten

1 The Emancipation of Mimi - Mariah Carey
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
4 Destiny Fulfilled - Destiny's Child
5 Butterfly - Mariah Carey
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
8 Take Care - Drake
9 Tha Carter 3 - Lil Wayne
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 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.

13 Kiss of Death - Jadakiss

Wrong. - RobertWisdom

14 Watch the Throne - Kanye West
15 Daydream - Mariah Carey
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 Good Kid, M.A.A.D City - Kendrick Lamar

This is not even old! - JoLeKosovo

20 In a Perfect World... - Keri Hilson

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

21 Love vs. Money - The-Dream

He sucks anyway

22 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.

23 Justified - Justin Timberlake

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

24 Dizzy Heights - The Lightning Seeds
25 Armed Forces - Elvis Costello
26 Smells Like Children - Marilyn Manson
27 Portrait of an American Family - Marilyn Manson
28 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.

29 ... Baby One More Time - Britney Spears
30 Recovery - Eminem
31 Sounding the Seventh Trumpet - Avenged Sevenfold
32 A Night at the Opera - Queen
33 Kid A - Radiohead
34 Life After Death - The Notorious B.I.G.

Nope. - RobertWisdom

35 Charmbracelet - Mariah Carey
36 Rainbow - Mariah Carey
37 We are the Streets - The Lox
38 The Slim Shady LP - Eminem
39 Money, Power, Respect - The Lox
40 Goodies - Ciara
41 The Marshall Mathers LP - Eminem
42 A Gangster and a Gentleman - Styles P
43 My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy - Kanye West
44 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

45 Intuition - Jamie Foxx
46 We are Young Money - Young Money
47 The Black Album - Jay-Z
