Top Ten Most Overrated Albums


The Contenders: Page 5

81 X - Ed Sheeran
82 Reign in Blood - Slayer

Critics say "This is the heaviest metal album of all time" even though Kreator released an even heavier album the exact same year this one came out.

So over rated. Slayer has albums better then this, but this gets all the credit. Remember, heavier doesn't equal better.

83 Rust in Peace - Megadeth
84 The Bodyguard - Whitney Houston
85 Invincible - Michael Jackson
86 Dookie - Green Day
87 Awakening - Jackie Evancho
88 Close to the Edge - Yes

Yes is one of my all-time favorite bands. This album is frequently considered to be Yes' best album. Some even consider it to be the greatest progressive rock album ever. It is neither. Good but endlessly over-rated.

89 25 - Adele
90 Am - Arctic Monkeys
91 Anti - Rihanna
92 Take Care - Drake
93 Red - Taylor Swift
94 HIStory: Past, Present and Future, Book I - Michael Jackson
95 Exile On Main Street - The Rolling Stones

Not bad at all, but much worse than other Stones records like Beggar's Banquet, Sticky Fingers or Aftermath.

96 Amused to Death - Roger Waters

Honestly, I hate this album. It's basically a remake of Radio KAOS

97 Wish You Were Here - Pink Floyd

I love Pink Floyd as much as the next guy. Everything from the 70's they made (although I haven't listened to Obscured by Clouds and never plan to) was mind-blowingly great. However the fact that this album is paired up with Dark Side and The Wall confuses me. "Welcome to the Machine" is a complete waste of seven minutes. Everything else is mediocre except "Shine on you Crazy Diamond" which is amazing, but who has time to listen to two eleven minute songs in their free time.

98 Port of Miami - Rick Ross

Not exactly over-rated, since nobody outside of those locked up in the prison system thinks this album, or Rick Ross in general, are any good at all.

99 Journals - Justin Bieber
100 Believe - Justin Bieber V 1 Comment
