Top Ten Disappointing Follow Up Albums


The Top Ten

1 Point of Entry - Judas Priest

A very weak follow up to British Steel.Not only that but it's their worst album ever.
Fortunately,the follow up to this was the masterpiece known as Screaming For Vengeance! - HEAVYMETALTHUNDER12345

2 Who Do We Think We Are - Deep Purple

Ian Gillan explained the situation and pointed out that fatigue and management had a lot to do with it: "We had just come off 18 months of touring, and we'd all had major illnesses at one time or another. Looking back, if they'd have been decent managers, they would have said, 'All right, stop. I want you to all go on three months' holiday. But instead they pushed us to complete the album on time. We should have stopped."
At that point members were not talking to each other and many songs were finished "only after schedules were arranged so they could record parts separately." - Metal_Treasure

This is what happens when you don't let individual band members take a break after exhaustive touring. Everyone was tired and not agreeing on the material, and it shows. - Gg2000

I don't know why they went so soft with this one,and it's overall a mediocre album. - HEAVYMETALTHUNDER12345

3 Pink Bubbles Go Ape - Helloween

Very weak album compared to the Keeper of the Seven Keys Part 2,and what's with that terrible cover? - HEAVYMETALTHUNDER12345

4 Revival - Eminem
5 Views - Drake
6 Van Halen II - Van Halen

One of the best examples of the Sophomore slump. - HEAVYMETALTHUNDER12345

I personally don't think it's that bad. - Gg2000

7 Load - Metallica

After a classic like Metallica (The Black Album) they came out with THIS garbage. It was SO BAD I stopped listening.

A good reason why Metallica isn't the best band ever. - Userguy44

8 The Magician's Birthday - Uriah Heep

I mean it's not bad but really disappointing compared to the masterpiece that it was Demons and Wizards. - HEAVYMETALTHUNDER12345

9 Dance of Death - Iron Maiden

Dance Of Death, Paschendale, No More Lies... This album is great, I don't understand why people don't like it

After they made a strong comeback with Brave New World,this is what we got...Well at least it has their best song of 2000s,No More Lies.But overall,it's a weaker album than Virtual XI. - HEAVYMETALTHUNDER12345

Eh? This album is pretty solid, the only reason why it is so hated is by the god-awful album cover - Pato_cargo

10 Destroyer of the worlds - Bathory

Quorthon went back to a heavier direction with this release but it didn't work well. - HEAVYMETALTHUNDER12345

The Contenders

11 Everybody - Logic
12 Birds in the Trap Sing McKnight - Travis Scott
13 Come Out and Play - Twisted Sister

After Stay Hungry they released this... - HEAVYMETALTHUNDER12345

14 Thank U, Next - Ariana Grande

Sweetener was ten times better

15 Pacific Daydream - Weezer
16 City Babys Revenge - G.B.H
17 Fun to the World - Momoland

So BBOOM BBOOM slapped and was dubbed "original" and "a bop"
Then MOMOLAND did the same thing again with BAAM
and that's why Fun to the World sold like 1 copy

18 Save Rock and Roll - Fall Out Boy
19 Yandhi - Kanye West

It's not out yet, but I'm calling it.

20 Damn. - Kendrick Lamar
21 Temper Temper - Bullet for My Valentine

This may be somewhat of an unpopular opinion, but 'Fever' was my personal favourite Bullet For My Valentine album. So many great songs such as 'Your Betrayal', 'Alone', 'Bittersweet Memories' etc.
So what do they do? Follow it up with an album that mostly consists of bad thrash metal. - SuperSonic17

22 St. Anger - Metallica

With Fuel and The Unforgiven II as the stand out singles from their last album before St. Anger, most people thought St. Anger would have some great songs that would be played everywhere, as with every other Metallica album. This definitely wasn't the case, with a brand new bassist hired out of nowhere, no songs where the lead guitarist Kirk stood out with solos, and a snare that sounds like the drummer Lars borrowed Oscar’s trash can to record with. So disappointing, thankfully Metallica followed up this one with 2 actual good albums later on. - yaygiants16

23 One More Light - Linkin Park

I'm very sorry but it wasn't as good as the other albums like Hybrid Theory, Meteora, and some of Minutes to Midnight.

24 Make Believe - Weezer
25 Weezer (Red Album) - Weezer
26 Raditude - Weezer
27 Steal This Album - System of a Down
28 Hypnotize - System of a Down
