Top Ten Most Overrated Albums


The Contenders: Page 3

41 Tha Carter - Lil Wayne

When lick the (w)rapper is the most creative line on the entire album, you know something's wrong.

all rappers annoys me except few but annoying someone ugly beast puts an underrated chinese democracy in this list - ronluna

42 In Rainbows - Radiohead

Radiohead is my 2 favourite band but got to say did not like in rainbows! The bends, ok computer, kidA are way better!

WHAT!?! "OK Computer" was far more overrated and "In Rainbows" is ' awesome - NarrowArtist147

43 Life After Death - The Notorious B.I.G.
44 The Massacre - 50 Cent
45 Spiceworld - Spice Girls
46 Master of Puppets - Metallica

The definition of overrated. Some people be claiming this is the most influential album of all time. It's just some kinda well written metal. - mikeford

This is way to far down the list, yea it's a pretty good album, but doesn't deserve ALL the hype that it gets - Maclammy

Not that good, one or two songs are decent but its not as great as people make it seem

47 A Night at the Opera - Queen

Queen never made a great album, face it. So quit pretending that this is one. Just because Bohemian Rhapsody is on does not make it so that you could fool me into thinking that. Not to mention that BR is the second most overrated song of all time, behind Layla.

48 Blackstar - David Bowie

This was a good album, but the hype machine and the aftermath of Bowie's death just destroyed it for me. - IronSabbathPriest

You know what im sick of heaing about this album on this site my god this album is being praised as "one of the greatest of all time" when

1. It isn't

2. Its only praised so heavly because Bowie Died

I have listened to this album and thought it was just OK but nowhere near the best of all time and possibly not even Bowies best album. (This is not better than Ziggy Stardust)

Bowie doesn't sound very good here i can't hear what he is saying clearly, this wouldn't be a problem if their was a instrumental worth while but i find the instrumentals boring the lyrics are good but nothing special except for maybe Lazarus but many rock musicians have written songs before their death and never get as much attention as this has. In way this makes David Bowie in the same place as Nirvana, Avenged Sevenfold, and somewhat Led Zeppelin and The Beatles and maybe Linkin Park as a artist being praised heavily just because of their or one of their members passed away R.I.P. ...more - christangrant

49 Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band - The Beatles

Okay, I love Sgt. Pepper, but it's not as revolutionary as you are told it is. That honor goes to Pet Sounds and Revolver. Sgt. Pepper is amazing, but it's basically just Revolver on steroids.

Agree it overrated. When you listen to the songs and not get caught up in the experience that was this phase of the Beatles' development, they just aren't that great.
I'm much more of a Revolver and Abby Road fan.

This isn't psychedelic rock in the slightest. - SwagFlicks

Wait, wait, wait... I know what you want to say: "How is it overrated, it's one of the best albums ever! "
And I agree, it's one of the best albums ever.
BUT: To Many People say it's the best album... But it's not even in the top 3 of the Beatles:
1. Revolver
2. Abbey Road
3. Rubber Soul
4. Sergeant Pepper

50 Appetite for Destruction - Guns 'N Roses
51 21 - Adele

Way overrated

52 The Joshua Tree - U2

This is one of the greatest albums of all time. Achtung Baby is more overrated.

53 Californication - Red Hot Chili Peppers

By the what's better

54 Paranoid - Black Sabbath
55 Danzig - Danzig

This is Underrated - christangrant

56 Wild Ones - Flo Rida
57 Spirit - Leona Lewis
58 X - Kylie Minogue
59 The Dark Side of the Moon - Pink Floyd

I truly enjoy this album, blast it in the car, memorized the lyrics, but I need everyone to really take a step back for a second. Let me play devil's advocate (not my own feelings)... It's a progressive album, but does that make it one of the best? Anyone can record several unused/unheard-of instruments into a repeating melody and claim it is the modern standard in the evolution of music. So let's put DSOTM on the same level as every album that was not so "progressive", three to (maybe) five songs actually stand out. Band On The Run had the title track, Jet, Nineteen Hundred And Eighty Five, and Let Me Roll It. Pronounced Leh-Nerd Skin-nerd had extraordinary hits like Free Bird, Simple Man, Tuesday's Gone, and Gimme Three Steps. Sales don't account for the greatness of an album, neither does the impact on the time. What makes an album truly the best is universal application, hit after hit after hit, and a little bit of everything. I'm not claiming that DSOTM isn't a long standing ...more - RilesLee

In my personal opinion of course, I think the wall is by far much better than dark side

I used to think that until I realized how awesome dark Side is. Wall tells an awesome story and is one of the best albums ever, but Dark Side encompasses the entire human existence. - epicness2099

It's OK but greatest album of all time? No!

Overrated? Absolutely!
Bad? Not even close.

60 Chinese Democracy - Guns n Roses

we waited 15-16 years for this.. it was really not worth it - Dickey96

wasn't worth the wait at all -_-; - daecla
