Top Ten Overhated Albums by Great BandsPony These are those albums that get a lot of hate, but don't necessarily deserve it.
The Top Ten
Another hated album. No guitar solos in a Metallica album sounds pretty bizarre, if you ask me. The steel drums don't help either. But, Lulu is 1000 times WORSE. - Pony
I didn't like it - EliHbk
I love this album! - Brobusky
I enjoyed this one. it has a simpler more raw sound. Purify, St. Anger and Frantic are great. - marmalade_skies
Sandwiched in between two iconic albums, this is the only album to feature Dave Navarro, of Jane's Addiction fame. - Pony
I know it is not Weezer's best work, but it is not their worst album. We can all agree that Raditude makes Make Believe look like Pinkerton in comparison. - Pony
I will admit its not the best LZ album, but it still gets a lot of hate. At least "Fool In The Rain" is a good song. - Pony
The second half of the album is orchestral music from the 1968 film. That's what's to blame for this album being belittled. It's not a full album, technically. But it's still all beautiful music. - BKAllmighty
I know it was only the soundtrack and songs from previous albums, but that doesn't mean the album should get hate. - Pony
Why couldn't they just put their unreleased works as disc 1 and the soundtrack as disc 2 - marmalade_skies
No, this one sucks - Bboymakinwitthefrekfreak
Nickelback? Great? Hell no!
Stop hating on nickelback }:(
The legendary band has only one album that fans are critically divided on- Caress of Steel. While there are decent songs like "Bastille Day", there are not one, but TWO lengthy songs. Half of Rush fans like it; others hate it. I personally thought it was okay. - Pony
I'm part of the half that loves it. I might even call it one of their best albums! - Songsta41
Great album, but too many haters. Even the band dislikes the album! - Brobusky
This is actually a good album, the only reason why people don't like it is because it sounds different from their earlier albums. - Rorywilbren
I really like this album!
I know it's very different from their earlier albums, but Linkin Park was just experimenting.
And what's wrong with a band experimenting with a new sound?
It sounds surprisingly good. - Kiyomi
It's so sad that such a talented band sold out like this. The intro to Changes is good, but aside from that, it's all too radio-friendly for them. - Songsta41
Hated because it changed the sound of Yes into a more radio friendlier sound. - Pony
How can you hate this? I don't understand. - BKAllmighty
This album doesn't deserve the hate it gets, especially considering that this is their first album. It has a cool grunge-style sound and has some good songs, like Creep. - Rorywilbren
Many people hate it because although it is their first album, it is nothing compared to Kid A and Computer Head. I like their song "Creep", though. - Pony
I actually think Radiohead's less good album is The King Of Limbs, this is actually underrated
My 2nd favorite Radiohead album - Bboymakinwitthefrekfreak
It is hated because some people generally didn't like the experimentation they did on this album. - Pony
Is hated just because it's between the two most hated Weezer albums (Make Believe and Raditude)
While the 90's were an awful time for Maiden as a whole (and for metal in general), this album wasn't a reason for this. It isn't a great LP by any means, as Bayley was the wrong choice for the band (highlighted by songs like Sign Of The Cross where he drains the energy out of the songs) and it doesn't push the boundaries of the band's sound. However, it does have its good points, which are often overlooked. The tracklist is very solid here, thematically rich (particularly on a song like Fortunes Of War) and (for better or worse), a new vocalist seemed to quick in some energy into this tired band. It was a step in the right direction after two duds and still holds up, regardless of both the context it came out in and what it spawned (Virtual XI, anyone? ). Hopefully this album will be re-evaluated and will break the shackles of its poor reputation, but until then, this album remains an underrated gem from a brilliant band. - Mrveteran
X Factor is boring and mediocre overall, but Virtual XI was miles worse.
I get it. Anette's voice is different than Tarja and Floor. That doesn't make her bad, though.
Why do people hate this? It's amazing! - NikBrusk
Some didn't like it as much as previous Metallica albums. - Pony
Hated because "the sound is weird" Now Metallica fanboys are a completely crybabies
It's great - Brobusky
So glad to see this on the list. This is my personal favorite album from Oasis. The songs are massive and epic sounding. It's also a decently lengthy album being around 72 minutes long. It you look past the fact that this album is hated by a lot of the fans and the band themselves, it's truly a fantastic listen. The Gallagher brothers were not getting along during the recording of this album so I suppose they have an excuse for detesting the album. Regardless, still a masterpiece in my opinion. If you don't want to listen to the whole thing, at least listen to Stand by Me, Magic Pie or All Around the World. Definitely the highlights of the album.
