Top Ten Music Artists with Both Great and Terrible SongsMartin_Canine
The Top Ten
What I absolutely love about them:
The meaningful songs, the dark spooky songs, the songs with that taste for a kill. I love such humorously dark characters as are those they portray on records.
Also some of their comedy tracks are funny in a dumb way.
Great Milenko and The Mighty Death Pop are great albums as a whole. Except for the song "House of Horrors". That is just nonsense and a waste of a great beat.
What I dislike:
Their pseudo-metal songs. The 2 Bizarre albums. The songs that have massive gross out humour. Some of their stupid sound effects. That they often can't stay focused. - Martin_Canine
E-Rotic was a novelty eurodance group in the 90s to the early 2000s.
Their songs have stupid sexual content that is not very graphic but rather silly. They had songs called "Fritz Love My Tits", "Max Don't Have Sex With Your Ex" or "Help Me Dr. D**k". Enough said. They were musically simple and meant to sound silly and catchy.
However, the producer was David Brandes, and two of the singers were Lyane Leigh and Lydia Madajewski. All of them were also members of that awesome short lived band Missing Heart, an electronica/eurodance project with strong New Age and Native American influences. They were the opposite of E-Rotic: their lyrics were poetic, romantic and meaningful, their instrumentals were melodious and soft. However, whilst E-Rotic was successful in both Germany and Japan, Missing Heart never had any hit and disbanded after only one album. A shame actually. My assumption is that Brandes still had numerous songs left that were ...more - Martin_Canine
From his beginning to this Christmas album, I didn't like his music at all. The melodies were not only bad, but annoying. His singing didn't sound too good either. On the holiday album he already had a more mature voice, but really, rap versions of Christmas songs is not what I want to hear to get in Christmas mood.
What I still like about his first albums is that he wrote most of the songs. Little people this young do that.
"Believe" was a good pop album. I think people hated it just because it was by Bieber and because he used the word "Swag" that people don't like because it's overused. It was really catchy though and well-sung with lyrics that are not bad, just what was to be expected from love songs. It's a guilty pleasure you can have lots of fun with.
I seriously consider "Purpose" one of the greatest albums of the 2010s. It is pop perfection. Perfectly written, perfectly produced, creative and experimental but still catchy and ...more - Martin_Canine
Yeah, his newer stuff is great, but his older stuff is bad. - Martinglez
For most of her career, she's one of the favorite artists of all time. I really like her rough and badass rock chick attitude, and also how she manages to openly express her sexuality without ever seeming slutty, in fact she does it in a very tough and feminist way. It's as if she puts those guys who brag about how much sex they have in their place by saying she's the baddest of them all.
She's a pretty cool person overall, doesn't really fit in the sweet delicate girl stereotype, but she doesn't even seem to try that much. Her music is just the way she is.
And then there's "Funstyle", one of the weirdest (not in a good way) albums I have ever heard. It sounds like a cheap parody of music, throwing all kinds of junk together: lyrics with some extra plastic on top, the silliest sounding instruments and melodies you can imagine, and grotesque singing. Starting from the terrible cover artwork up to the music it contains, it feels as if she lost her ...more - Martin_Canine
She got worse as she progressed.
