Top 10 Worst Albums of 2021

Not everything here is my opinion and I have not listened to everything, I only added entries to create this list. Just add what you think are the worst albums of 2021!
The Top Ten
1 Life Rolls On - Florida Georgia Line

Painfully generic as you may expect. Most ballads are too sappy, some songs mix country and rap in the most questionable way possible, and the lyrics are full of obnoxious clichés in modern country music. Also, can they just stop saying "Yeah baby!" at the beginning of each song or between verses?

Should be one. Florida Georgia Line is so bad they are the Blood on the Dance Floor of country.

It's Florida Georgia Line, I mean come on... what do you expect?

2 Jordi - Maroon 5

This album is the bona fide definition of Maroon 5's constant ambition as the trend followers they are. They take popular pop sounds and beats and strip them to the bare minimum. Following the recent uptick in redistributing deceased artists' demos by slapping them on new tracks, they do this unceremoniously not once, but twice in their 12-song catalogue.

Red Pill Blues was the diagnosis of Maroon 5's stardom nearing its end, and Jordi is the shambling corpse that remains.

I think Sputnik Music described it really well: "Every song layers Levine's singing/clumsy rapping over the most cringe-inducing trap beats, and most of the time he sounds like a middle-aged stepdad trying to sound 'hip' to get in good with his stepson. It's transparent cultural and trend pandering, and even when Levine adheres to his bread and butter, the melodies are more vanilla than usual."

3 Music - Songs from and Inspired by the Motion Picture - Sia

The soundtrack is just as lifeless and offensive as the movie itself. It features some of Sia's worst songs, rehashes several melodies and beats from Sia's previous hits, and Sia's vocals are more ear-grating than ever. If you don't want your brain to shut down, don't listen to this album!

Very disappointed to see what Sia has become. She used to be a talented songwriter with incredible vocals. Now she's turned into a caricature of herself. She fell from grace so hard.

I don't care for what Sia is doing these days. So sad.

4 Welcome to the Madhouse - Tones and I

This album is a strong contender for the worst album of the year. Not only are Tones and I's vocals extremely annoying, but it also has some of the worst pop clichés in recent history. Most songs sound the same, and some songs even sound unfinished. Let's hope she fades into obscurity and takes singing lessons (or just stops singing).

This album shows that she has no talent. I don't know why people find her unique, in my opinion.

The most frustrating thing about her is that she (probably) can sing with a normal voice but chooses to use that voice.

5 Brother - Tom Sawyer

I mean, it's a Tom Sawyer album. You know what you're getting into by now. Stolen and unchanged instrumentals from songs like Beat It, Don't Start Now, and Savage Love, repeating the same title of the song over and over again. Boring and dull, and a failure as a comedy album. It's nothing.

Rating: 2/10

Best Songs: No.

Worst Songs: Everything else.

6 Faith - Pop Smoke

Disappointing posthumous album that is overshadowed by its star power. I hope this is the last posthumous Pop Smoke release we'll have.

7 Dog Boy - ZillaKami

What an abomination of an album! It basically sounds like 6ix9ine mixed with Blood on the Dance Floor and Limp Bizkit's worst songs. Not only are the vocals one-dimensional and headache-inducing, but the lyrics are unnecessarily violent and the beats and guitars are extremely generic. I just hope this won't be the future of hip-hop.

8 Bobby Tarantino III - Logic

Such a disappointing return for Logic. Although there are a few okay songs, the rest is just incredibly bland, corny, or plain forgettable. Maybe he just shouldn't have come out of retirement.

9 Country Stuff - Walker Hayes
10 Cartel - Yung Lambo
The Contenders
11 The Tree of My Own Pee - Depp Gibbs
12 The Battle at Garden's Gate - Greta Van Fleet

Not a bad album, but more often than not, the band failed to impress me. They sound like Led Zeppelin or Rush minus the charisma, and Josh Kiszka's vocals become ear-grating after a few listens. I'm sorry to anyone who likes Greta Van Fleet, but that's my opinion on them.

This album is boring and generic. The vocals sound like a strangling cat, and it's horrible. They are just a poor attempt to combine Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, Rush, and Queen. Very dull.

13 Music of the Spheres - Coldplay

Despite having one excellent song and two decent singles, this album really fell short of expectations. As someone who has been listening to Coldplay's music since my younger years, I can say I was sorely disappointed, which is a first when it comes to Coldplay.

Whereas albums like A Head Full of Dreams have kind of grown on me since their release, I feel like Music of the Spheres is the album I will most likely want to forget. The music is superficial, Max Martin was not a good producer choice for Coldplay, the interludes bring little to nothing to the table, and the album sounds kind of unfinished.

Also, there are three songs I want to point out, and not for the right reasons. "Let Somebody Go" (with Selena Gomez), where the lyrics are awfully trite and Chris Martin's vocals just don't mesh with Selena Gomez's (compared to Rihanna and Beyoncé, who were able to complement Chris Martin). "People of the Pride," which is incredibly bland and has a gnarly guitar riff that sounds like something out of a truck commercial. And also "Biutyful," which is easily the worst song Coldplay has ever done. I don't even know where to begin with this one.

The nameless vocoded vocals that dominate the song are simply unlistenable after only 10 seconds, Chris Martin's vocals cannot save the song from being abysmal, and the lyrics and title sound like something a primary school student would've written.

Overall, this album is not a disaster, but it's easily Coldplay's weakest album to date.

14 The City Introvert - The Prize Fighter Inferno
15 The Mission to Make Speeder Flop - Yung Lambo
16 Tha Shop - Tending Bike
17 Nobody is Listening - Zayn
18 Let the Bad Times Roll - The Offspring

My God, has The Offspring fallen off hard. It took them nine years for this album to come out (it has been delayed several times!), but it sounds like it was only put together in a couple of days and sounds very lazy and uninspired.

They also decided to throw in some older songs like "Coming for You," as well as a boring piano ballad version of "Gone Away," and for whatever reason decided to remake the classic "In the Hall of the Mountain King." I doubt that The Offspring will ever recover from this.

19 The Lunar Injection Kool Aid Eclipse Conspiracy - Rob Zombie

It's surely not a very good album (despite having a lot of tracks, almost none stand out), but it's decent. Also, The Triumph of King Freak is one of the best songs Rob Zombie has ever done, and Howling Man and The Ballad of the Sleazy Rider are good tracks.

20 Zoom In - Ringo Starr
21 Human - OneRepublic
22 The End of an Era - Iggy Azalea

Every album by Iggy Azalea is worse than the last. The production in this is ear-grating, her flow is mediocre, and her lyrics are awful. Thankfully, we won't be hearing any more music from her for a very long time.

23 Criminal Genius - JackG
24 Visionland - YBN Nahmir

Hey, look, it's the Soul Train guy. This album gets a bit too much hate. There are some good tracks and beats as well as nice features from G Herbo and 21 Savage, but you also have awful performances by the Soul Train guy and abysmal hooks.

Anyway, where is Michigan Boy Boat, the Rich the Kid and Wayne collab album, Sincerely Twitter's Favorite, Culture 3, Unbothered, and Live Life Fast? They are also deserving to be here.

Two words: Soul. Train.

Other than that, the rest of the album is paint-by-numbers rap that you would get from an average SoundCloud rapper, with generic beats and laughable singing. It's a shame that YBN has fallen so far.

25 A Lantern and a Bell - Loney Dear
