Albums with a Undeserved Average Score on Encyclopaedia Metallum

I made this list because i find lots of EM reviews to be pretty bad.The ''Undeserved'' score can be more or less than it deserves to me.

The Top Ten

1 The Last Stand - Sabaton

Really just goes to show that no community is perfect at making reviews everyone likes different things and albums usually are marked down when an artists changes it musical style - germshep24

Average score of 56%.This album is very good for me,sure they got less heavy but that doesn't make it worse.They called this ''Bland and ''Disapointing'',''Generic'' etc.Meanwhile they praise pizza thrash metal.The most diverse,creative complex metal sub genre ever (Sarcasm,it's actually the total opposite).This shows the strong bias most members there have towards extreme metal. - HEAVYMETALTHUNDER12345

2 Practice What You Preach - Testament

One of the best albums of all time! I don't know how it get that low score on metallum - EzP2

I don't know,69% for this album is to low for me. My favorite from Testament,and one of those few thrash metal albums I like. - HEAVYMETALTHUNDER12345

3 Purgatory - Iron Maiden

This is a single not a album.The List title should be Albums and Singles.Admin changed it for some reason. - HEAVYMETALTHUNDER12345

Only 1 review,5% score.Because there was nothing ''rare'' here.Purgatory was released before in the Killers album true,and the B-Side Genghis Khan too.But lots of singles are released after they were in a album.Some of those Metal singles are Symphony of Destruction - Megadeth,Sad But True - Metallica,I Want Out - Helloween etc.Does that makes them bad? No.The guy who made the review gave the score only because of this reason,he actually liked both tracks here.And I find all this absurd. - HEAVYMETALTHUNDER12345

4 Obsessed by Cruelty - Sodom

Sodom in general is pretty praised, even their worst album is ranked good on both Metal Kingdom and metal encyclopedia: 64% for Masquerade on encyclopedia and their pointless album The Final Sign of Evil is at a 68% and Metal Kingdom has all their albums in the 80% range outside of Final Signs of Evil which has the same ranking on both sites and there is nothing good about that album - germshep24

84% and this album sucks in my opinion.Sodom did better albums after this.Also In the Sign of Evil EP that came before this was pretty good.Also this shows the site is biased towards extreme metal. - HEAVYMETALTHUNDER12345

5 Seventh Son of a Seventh Son - Iron Maiden

I don't know,a 91% score for this album is to high for me,but this is just my personal taste after all.I just don't think it's that good,while better Iron Maiden albums have a lower score,Killers 84%,Number of the Beast and Iron Maiden 85%,Brave New World 79%,etc. - HEAVYMETALTHUNDER12345

Sometimes it seems to me that people just robotically give lower scores for newer albums and robotically give high scores for the old ones. - Alkadikce

6 Cold Lake - Celtic Frost

34% score.This isn't suprising at knowing how much hate this album gets,even by Tom G Warrior himself but still 34% is still to low. - HEAVYMETALTHUNDER12345

7 Grand Declaration of War - Mayhem

Average score of 71%.For me that it's to high,this is one of the worst albums made by a metal band ever. - HEAVYMETALTHUNDER12345

8 Enter Sandman - Metallica

This is a single not a album,admin changed the list title.It was Album and Singles,not only albums. - HEAVYMETALTHUNDER12345

Also,you can also add Singles,EP and Demos here.Pretty much everything that is reviewed there. - HEAVYMETALTHUNDER12345

71% average score based off two reviews.Not very suprising considering the hate enter sandman gets but it deserves a better score.Also I was suprised with the fact that it only had two reviews.Also the b-side of this single is a great cover of Queen's classic Stone Cold Crazy. - HEAVYMETALTHUNDER12345

9 Spiritual Healing - Death

It's Death metal sites are always kinder to bands that are highly influential to a genre - germshep24

This album is dope to me, and is probably my favourite Death's album after Scream Bloody Gore. - Black_Abbath

Got a average score of 90%.It's suprising becuase this album is considered as their worst by most fans.I also think it's not that good.While a better album by them The Sound of Perseverance got a 78% score. - HEAVYMETALTHUNDER12345

10 Grave New World - Discharge

This album is considered glam metal but except the vocals it isn't.It's just trad heavy metal.I accept the fact that the Hardcore Punk fans of Discharge hate this album because it's so different from their previous hardcore style,but I thought Metalheads would have liked it more.But apperantly no,this album got a average score of 30%. - HEAVYMETALTHUNDER12345
