Top Ten Disappointing Follow Up Albums

The Top Ten

1 Revival - Eminem
2 Views - Drake
3 Everybody - Logic
4 Birds in the Trap Sing McKnight - Travis Scott
5 Point of Entry - Judas Priest
6 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

7 Pink Bubbles Go Ape - Helloween
8 Van Halen II - Van Halen

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

9 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

10 The Magician's Birthday - Uriah Heep

The Contenders

11 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

12 Destroyer of the worlds - Bathory
13 Come Out and Play - Twisted Sister
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
