Top Ten Most Overrated Albums

Magnolia

The Contenders: Page 4

61 The Fame - Lady Gaga

People hate thriller just because it's the best selling album ever and the sales were really high. Thriller is not overrated but this one definitely is

A person won't hate an album for how much it sells, and calling something overrated does not mean a person hates it. Overrated is when something is given too much hype.

62 Horses - Patti Smith
63 Rubber Soul - The Beatles
64 Lemonade - Beyonce
65 Chocolate Starfish and the Hot Dog Flavoured Water - Limp Bizkit
66 The Dutchess - Fergie
67 E=MC² - Mariah Carey
68 Elephant - The White Stripes
69 Ten - Pearl Jam
70 Music Box - Mariah Carey
71 Beautiful World - Take That
72 Body Language - Kylie Minogue
73 The Circus - Take That
74 Janet - Janet Jackson
75 Let's Talk About Love - Celine Dion
76 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.

77 Pinkerton - Weezer

El Scorcho only gooder song, way different from their first album, what a let down.

78 Dive - Sarah Brightman
79 Kid A - Radiohead

It is very bad. I just can't understand how anyone would ever want to listen to it, does not live up to its hype or even come close.

Bland and overrated.

I just listened to it. It's not that good. There are of course good parts, but it's not the masterpiece that people refere to it as

Funny how Ok computer is higher than this album yet this is the one that actually has comments to validate their vote. I had to vote this because, as much as I love Radiohead. I can't stand watching it become a band that feeds on its hype through the past of time. Kid A is a great album there's no doubt about it. But Radiohead's trademark was and always will be Ok Computer. Kid A doesn't live up to its hype. In short, I would not choose it as the only album I could ever listen if I I had to choose only one for the rest of my life. Its not that special. Thou musically is ground breaking. It lacks of the spirit and raw heart which Ok computer has plenty of. Pd. Ok Computer shouldn't be on this list.

80 And Justice for All - Metallica

What is so good about this album? Some claim this is Metallica's best album. I don't even see how this is even close to being a good album. Most songs suck, this has too much hype

Listen, I love this album and I love Metallica. This album got way too much hype, though.
