Top Ten Albums You Like But People Seem to Hate


The Top Ten

1 St. Anger - Metallica

It is not their best but people confuse that with it being a bad album. It's a good album, stop saying negative things about it just because it is the lesser music of a great band! - Songsta41

It's way better than Lulu.

2 No Prayer for the Dying - Iron Maiden

Includes classics such as Mother Russia, Run Silent, Run Deep and the Title Track. - IronSabbathPriest

This album is #28 on the best Iron Maiden Albums list. Behind all the live albums, EP's, and singles, and why? It's not bad, why do people keep saying that? - Songsta41

I really LIKE this album with all my passion.
It had some very dope songs!
I know albums like Piece of Mind and Number of The Beast are better, but does that mean that this album is bad?
This album is awesome! I don't understand the hate.

3 Falling Into Infinity - Dream Theater

A good album. Peruvian Skies, Hollow Years, Lines in the Sand and Trial of Tears are all awesome songs! - IronSabbathPriest

4 Jugulator - Judas Priest

Cathedral Spires is one of my all time favorites. Epic song with great vocals from Tim Ripper. - Metal_Treasure

5 Headless Cross - Black Sabbath

The title track is so awesome. - IronSabbathPriest

Black Moon is an amazing song.

Black Sabbath stuff of the 80s is very underrated, not only this album. - Metal_Treasure

6 With Teeth - Nine Inch Nails
7 ...And Justice for All - Metallica

Their Black Album is hated but this one... Hated for what? - Metal_Treasure

Yeah, it is very loved among fans - gemcloben

An all time favorite in my books. - McKing1003

This Is My Favorite Metallica Album. - FettiMC

8 Tales from the Twilight World - Blind Guardian

@IronSabbathPriest - long long ago (maybe 300 days ago) I submitted a similar comment but as you see it's still not available. Actually about 50% of my comments never appear and it causes problems on my own lists, too, when some items need descriptions but they don't appear. - Metal_Treasure

Wait, people hate this album? It's not their best at all but there are many great songs! - IronSabbathPriest

I think these songs are great - Lord of the Rings, The Last Candle, Welcome to Dying, Traveler in Time.
Blind Guardian is really a great band if their least appreciated album has songs like these ones. - Metal_Treasure

I can't say people 'hate' this album because it's practically impossible to hate a Blind Guardian album. But even Blind Guardian fans seem to not like it enough and I can't understand that.

The Last Candle is awesome - the intro scream, the chorus, the outro. Hansi's voice is superb!

Lord of the Rings, Welcome to Dying and Traveler In Time are also great songs.

These songs are awesome live.

YouTube this (it's audio only):

Blind Guardian - The Lord Of The Rings [Live Tokyo Tales] - Metal_Treasure

9 Chinese Democracy - Guns N Roses

This I Love - listen to it

10 Turbo - Judas Priest

Again, people say it is glam. When it's actually not that bad. - IronSabbathPriest

I may not like glam which this album isn't really glammy. But this is in my top 10 judas priest albums

The Contenders

11 Metallica (The Black Album) - Metallica

Hated by metal fans and loved by non-metal fans. Why hated? - sellout issue...
I am a metal hardliner and I don't like what Metallica did (changed their sound from thrash to less thrash and to just heavy metal).
But I also think that the album itself is great and I love each and every song on it. - Metal_Treasure

12 Slaves and Masters - Deep Purple

I guess people hate it because they don't hear Ian Gillan vox. I agree that classic Deep Purple is with Ian Gillan but it doesn't mean the album is not good.

There are some very cool songs on this album:

The Cut Runs Deep, King Of Dreams, Fortuneteller, Love Conquers All. - Metal_Treasure

13 All the Right Reasons - Nickelback
14 Bark at the Moon - Ozzy Osbourne
15 Power Metal - Pantera

People don't like the album because it is pre Cowboys From Hell, and is glam metal. - IronSabbathPriest

I completely agree.
The cover art is a bit misleading - yes, they look so glam and silly. But music inside is not typical glam and for that reason it's not bad. This was their transitional album - from glam to groove (Cowboys from hell came out after this album).
One of my most favorite speed metal songs is from this album - 'Burnnn!'.

This song is just awesome - riff, solo, speed and Anselmo's amazing non-harsh vocals (he hits Halford-esque high notes). - Metal_Treasure

16 Yield - Pearl Jam
17 Machina/The Machines of God - Smashing Pumpkins

Stand inside your love is such a beautiful song

18 There Is Nothing Left to Lose - Foo Fighters
19 Stranger In Us All - Rainbow

The last Rainbow album, 1995. No bad songs here - great riffs and melodies from Ritchie Blackmore, and vocals from Doogie White (considered as Bruce Dickinson's replacement but lost out to Blaze).
Hall Of The Mountain King, Silence, Ariel, Cold hearted woman, Black Masquerade, Still I'm Sad.

Pay special attention to the song 'Hunting Humans (Insatiable)' - this is a unique piece with its musical dialogue between the guitar and the singer. I've never heard such a beautiful thing before. I also like the whisper at the very end "Don't cry".

The second half of 'Hall Of The Mountain King' is awesome.
Every song sounds different and I love that. - Metal_Treasure

20 Significant Other - Limp Bizkit
21 Long Live Rock N Roll - Rainbow
22 Dark Horse - Nickelback
23 God Hates Us All - Slayer
24 Load - Metallica

I love this album so whoever has a problem with it can suck it

25 Born Again - Black Sabbath

People hate it because it's with Ian Gillan and not Ozzy.
Very cool songs - Disturbing The Priest, Keep It Warm, Zero The Hero.

Ozzy liked at most Zero The Hero. I think it's not a bad song but it's too monotonous to my taste and it doesn't showcase Gillan's vocal skills. - Metal_Treasure

26 Antichrist Superstar - Marilyn Manson

Probably Manson's best album and one of the best (if not the best) Industrial Metal albums of all time. Like the other dude said its hated because it has Antichrist in the title so of course ignorant Christians are gonna protest against it without even bothering to find out why its called Antichrist Superstar or bothering to find out the meaning behing the songs. - ComaWhite21

People hate it because it has Antichrist in the title. So people think you're a satanist if you like this album. Which is really stupid.

In this case, never judge an album by it's cover. Especially this one.

Really? This album is hated? It has excellent reviews and at least over here Marilyn Manson has lots of fans. - Martin_Canine

27 Without You I'm Nothing - Placebo
28 Mechanical Animals - Marilyn Manson

Any Marilyn Manson album is bound to be judged because it's Marilyn Manson.

29 Swagger - Gun
30 Holy Wood (In the Shadow of the Valley of Death) - Marilyn Manson
31 Mondo Bizarro - Ramones
32 Gold - Ryan Adams
33 Reload - Metallica
34 Keeper of the Seven Keys: The Legacy - Helloween
35 The Marshall Mathers LP - Eminem

I fail to see how this is considered "hated". Everyone praises it. - IronSabbathPriest

36 Black Sabbath - Black Sabbath
37 Korn - Korn

Hated mostly because of the dark subject matter in the songs (not to mention the album cover) and how it was the first nu metal album and that it started the trend of nu metal which is controversial among most metalheads seeing how most of them hate nu metal. But it's still a pretty great album.

38 The Great Milenko - Insane Clown Posse
39 Life Starts Now - Three Days Grace
40 Their Satanic Majesties Request - The Rolling Stones

The title is ridiculously obvious.

The title is way too obvious.

41 Reign In Blood - Slayer
42 Christ Illusion - Slayer
43 The Downward Spiral - Nine Inch Nails

Most people seem to hate it because of it being linked to the Columbine High School Massacre, but it's a really good album and I recommend you check it out. One of the best industrial rock albums of all time.

44 Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band - The Beatles

Probably because it has Aleister Crowley on the front cover. So people think you're a satanist if you like this album.

45 World Painted Blood - Slayer
46 Spiritual Healing - Death

I like this album. - IronSabbathPriest

47 The Slim Shady LP - Eminem
48 Yesterday and Today - The Beatles
49 Kill 'em All - Metallica

Probably hated because of the title and the bloody front cover art.

My all time favourite - gemcloben

50 The Sickness - Disturbed
