Worst Albums of 2015


The Top Ten

1 A Head Full of Dreams - Coldplay

Go away, trolls. - Swellow

It's coldplay's worst album...

2 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

A song that can also be called the reason modern-day rap music sucks. - Swellow

3 Title - Meghan Trainor

That face alone can put you off. - PositronWildhawk

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

4 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!

Many beautiful and touching ballads. Only 2 songs are bad but I guess haters gonna hate.

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.

I personally thought it was awesome. Not awesome music-wise, but just insanely entertaining

6 Royalty - Chris Brown

Oh man this was awful.

Chris followed up X, his best album in years with this crap.

Best song: Back to Sleep
Worst song: pretty much everything else - DaWyteNight

7 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

8 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

Too much belting. How did he survive his tour without a sore throat

9 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

10 Fetty Wap - Fetty Wap

Who wants to hear the same song 20 times? - DaWyteNight

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

The Contenders

11 Tangled Up - Thomas Rhett

yUcK - AlphaQ

The worst "country" album of the year.

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

12 F** What They Talkin Bout - Tyga
13 Made In the A.M. - One Direction
14 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

15 Late Nights - Jeremih

One of the worst "r&b" albums ever recorded. Jeremih must've been high when he recorded this, and even higher when he decided that it was good enough to release to the public. I mean, Jeremih was never an amazing artist, but at least what he made before this was halfway listenable. - DaWyteNight

16 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

17 Rodeo - Travi$ Scott
18 Love Stuff - Elle King

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

19 The Buffet - R. Kelly

I was so disappointed when this came out. It only had a few great songs, some okay songs, and then the godawful ones. Get Out of Here With Me is a masterpiece, Backyard Party is smooth, Wake Up Everybody was pretty good even though he was ripping off Barry White and Teddy Pendergrass in one, and then there were a bunch of forgettable songs, but songs like anything goes, let's make some noise, switch up and poetic sex are just terrible. I tried to listen to this album in full but I just couldn't do it, it's one of the most boring and uninspired albums ever. Only a 4/10 for this one. Try again Kelly! - DaWyteNight

20 Uptown Special - Mark Ronson
21 Reflection - Fifth Harmony
22 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.

23 Blurryface - Twenty One Pilots
24 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

25 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!

26 Get Weird - Little Mix
27 True Colors - Zedd
28 Made - Big Bang
29 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!

30 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

31 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

32 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

33 To Pimp a Butterfly - Kendrick Lamar

Overrated - DaWyteNight

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"

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

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

34 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

35 Dreams Worth More Than Money - Meek Mill

If you lose to drake you suck!

36 Know It All

This does not deserve to be here. - Swellow

37 The Ark Work - Liturgy
38 The L-Shaped Man - Ceremony
39 Apocalypse, Girl - Jenny Hval
40 New Alhambra - Elvis Depressedly
41 Cherry Bomb - Tyler, the Creator
42 Back on Top - The Front Bottoms
43 Sometimes I Sit and Think, Sometimes I Just Sit - Courtney Barnett
44 Are You Satisfied? - Slaves
45 Repentless - Slayer
46 Beauty Behind the Madness - The Weeknd
47 Cuffing Season - Eric Bellinger
