Worst Albums of 2015


The Top Ten

1 Sremmlife - Rae Sremmurd

These guys couldn't rap to save their lives.

One of the tracks is called "Unlock The Swag". That's all I should have to say.

Worst album of all time. - WonkeyDude98

The hate for these guys is unreal. Like why all the hate? Songs like “My X” are extremely savage but still manage to be fun and bouncy. “This Could Be Us” is just beautiful and an extremely fun listen. “No Flex Zone” and “No Type” are really good too. I don’t get it. I actually enjoy their music.

2 A Head Full of Dreams - Coldplay

Go away, trolls. - Swellow

It's coldplay's worst album...

3 Speedin' Bullet 2 Heaven - Kid Cudi

What the hell was up with Kid Cudi when he made this? Kid Cudi lost his mind on this album. This is without a doubt the second worst album of 2015 (the worst one being Miley and her Dead Petz). - TheMusicNerd

4 Tangled Up - Thomas Rhett

The worst "country" album of the year.

This should be #2, right behind SremmLife. - WonkeyDude98

5 Miley Cyrus and Her Dead Petz - Miley Cyrus

Oh Miley. Even from you, this album is too bad. I forgot how music artists have the potential to make some of the worst things in human history. This is not only the worst album of 2015, it's also one of the worst albums of all time. - TheMusicNerd

I felt like I was going to have a seizure after listening to some of the songs.

This was atrocious.

The fact that BB Talk and Dooo It! are songs on this album are bad enough, but...this piece of torture is over an hour and a half long... - WonkeyDude98

6 Full Speed - Kid Ink

Another Kid Ink Album that sounds like pop/rap. It just annoys me - Mumbizz01

How can anyone even consider this disgrace to be music? - PositronWildhawk

I only heard one Kid Ink song (Hello World) and I thought it was pretty good. I've never heard the stuff on this album, though. - RalphBob

7 F** What They Talkin Bout - Tyga
8 Title - Meghan Trainor

That face alone can put you off. - PositronWildhawk

What's wrong with To Pimp A Butterfly? - froogylowlo

9 Rebel Heart - Madonna

Little Monsters? No, Positron logged out and wrote all those anti-Madonna comments

Finally Madonna made a good album since 2005 and those kids keep saying trash like "She needs to retire"? Did you even listen to this album? Or you just come here and spread hatred and useless 'statements'? - PowerGirl

I'm sure, all those hateful comments were written by annoying Little Monsters! Haha Grow Up!

There are good songs on this album, but they are counterbalanced by the TERRIBLE songs on this album. Strong 6/10. - WonkeyDude98

10 Fan of a Fan: The Album

Who could call this piece of junk collaboration album music? Just sex, booze, partying and drugs, combined with two terrible rappers. - Swellow

The Contenders

11 Dreams Worth More Than Money - Meek Mill

If you lose to drake you suck!

12 Purpose - Justin Bieber

Don't get me wrong: it's not a BAD album, in fact I enjoyed a lot of songs on here, such as Love Yourself and Children. But when this album was bad, it was horrible, such as I'll Show You and Get Used To Me. Overall a strong 5/10. - WonkeyDude98

It's still Justin Bieber, and it's terrible lyric-wise, and just boring. It's better than his earlier works, but I could fall asleep listening to this.

This album was actually quite decent. This album doesn't deserve to be here. Justin Bieber finally made something good and you're scolding him for that? - TheMusicNerd

This was actually decent, and I normally hate Bieber. - RalphBob

13 Handwritten - Shawn Mendes

I bet 90% of the people who hate on this album didn't even listen to it in it's entirety. They probably just went: "Oh, a guy that is better looking than me, he can't have talent! " I'm a guy and I see through that crap. Judge people off their talent, not musical stereotypes.

It's literally Justin Bieber all over again. "It's someone who is more famous than me and gets all the girls I hate him! " - AsianBlood

5.5/10. Pretty decent for a Vine star. However, there's still trash on this album like Stitches. - Swellow

14 Tetsuo & Youth - Lupe Fiasco

Yup. This was a good album. I did not dislike it at all. - WonkeyDude98

Yup. This was a bad album. I did not like it at all.

15 Non Fiction - Ne-Yo

How could Ne-Yo make an album so atrocious?! This is the guy who has the potential to be one of the best artists of our time. How did he let this slip through? This album is horrible. The songs that have good production have terrible lyrics, the songs that have good lyrics are boring as hell. This album is a 3/10 from me. - TheMusicNerd

16 Reflection - Fifth Harmony
17 Made In the A.M. - One Direction
18 DS2 - Future

Wow, it's been a while since I've heard an entire album this bad, but this somehow manages to be both forgettable and abysmal at the same time. Boring, depressing beats, monotone vocals that have been autotuned so badly that they sound horrendous, and generic lyrics that almost every mainstream rapper has already put out. Provided you can hear what he's saying at all through that autotune. There's nothing special about this album besides the horrendous vocals, which ruin any chance of making this album pleasant to listen to. Final score: 1/10. - Zach808

19 Blurryface - Twenty One Pilots
20 Uptown Special - Mark Ronson
21 True Colors - Zedd
22 Made - Big Bang
23 To Pimp a Butterfly - Kendrick Lamar

Kendrick Lamar is an acquired taste, but Dre's production is perfect, and Lamar shows his fullest talent and future potential. The only list it belongs on is "Best of 2015"

Why is this here? It's one of the greatest rap records of all time

How is this album here? This album is one of the greatest things to happen to music. - TheMusicNerd

Why is this album on this list? It's great!

24 Emotion - Carly Rae Jepsen

No. This is a fantastic album. Not the best of the year, but definitely close. - WonkeyDude98

This album is actually pretty good - VideoGamefan5

Gosh! Worst album of the year, ever!

25 Drones - Muse

This is the worst album I have ever heard. Nothing new, only which has been done before. All the songs sound the same, the lyrics absolutely sucks, and they didn't put any effort into the songs.

Also, why are To Pimp A Butterfly and E-Mo-Tion on this list? They're both pretty good

26 25 - Adele

I actually don't find this one bad at all despite it being inferior to 21. Yes, Hello is overplayed, but many of the songs in this are really good soulful ones. Adele is a great person in real life, and this is not an exception. - Swellow

This album is boring as hell. The only song that can even remotely cheer you up is Water Under The Bridge, but even that song couldn't save this album. I don't get how this album became so overrated so quickly. This album gets a 4/10 from me. - TheMusicNerd

This is an album that makes you want to puke out. One of the worst albums EVER heard. - SelfDestruct

27 Love Stuff - Elle King

Some of the songs were OK, but Ex's and Oh's was the lousiest one in it. - Swellow

28 Four Pink Walls - Alessia Cara

This shouldn't even be on this list. She's actually better than other artists this year. - Swellow

Alessia Cara can sing, but her songs are a bit boring. But she's new. I'm sure she'll only get better. We're watching!

29 Fetty Wap - Fetty Wap

I'll admit: this album wasn't great. It ran too long, the content got old by track 5, and it had its flukes. (Looking at YOU, Couple Bands) But honestly this album is just a lot of bouncy fun and Fetty Wap can sell it. 7.5/10 - WonkeyDude98

30 Know It All

This does not deserve to be here. - Swellow

31 Get Weird - Little Mix
32 Confident - Demi Lovato

She tried too hard to be edgy and get rid of her good girl image, but it unfortunately didn't work. I loved her album Unbroken and her album Demi was also pretty good but I know what happened with this. I hope she can redeem herself with a new album.

Like with Bieber's Purpose, this album's highs were rare, but incredibly high. Its lows are also rare, but incredibly low. Confident and Cool For The Summer are easily the best and worst for me respectively, but everything else for the most part is...meh. 5/10 - WonkeyDude98

33 The Ark Work - Liturgy
34 The L-Shaped Man - Ceremony
35 Apocalypse, Girl - Jenny Hval
36 New Alhambra - Elvis Depressedly
37 Cherry Bomb - Tyler, the Creator
38 Back on Top - The Front Bottoms
39 Sometimes I Sit and Think, Sometimes I Just Sit - Courtney Barnett
40 Are You Satisfied? - Slaves
41 Repentless - Slayer
