Worst Albums of 2016

The Top Ten

1 Blackstar - David Bowie

Seeing this at #1 is making me contemplate suicide. - WonkeyDude98

It doesn't make sense since blackstar is #1 on the best song of 2016 list - AlphaQ

The dedication of someone constantly voting for this to the top. I gotta say, I'm honestly impressed. - cjWriter1997

Who voted for this? - ProPanda

#1 worst album of 2016? HOW? - chevygolderado

2 Angelic 2 the Core - Corey Feldman

This album is the musical equivalent of The Room. It's so inept that it's actually funny. - Zach808

So this exists...and it's abysmal so far. It makes me feel that I'm drowning in bleach and that I'm being slashed again and again by an invisible knife. That's how painful this is. -20/10 - AlphaQ

So many things wrong with this album. It's truly an experience that can't be described through words. - cjWriter1997

3 Kidz Bop 32 - Kidz Bop Kids

I mean, Kidz Bop just takes already okay or bad songs and makes them worse. - MistyMay113

The Kidz bop kids suck. - Fullwalking2

Yeah, we need kids who haven't even hit puberty yet to 'purify' songs. - PhenomentalOne

4 Illuminate - Shawn Mendes

This list has been so polluted that the highest bad album on the list is only #5. End me. - WonkeyDude98

This douchebag is probably patient zero of the Nice Guy Syndrome. - MKBeast

5 Thank You - Meghan Trainor

This is where my vote actually goes. No, Me Too and Watch Me Do are worse than her older hits, those were already really bad. Meghan Trainor should quit singing. - Elina

Thank You for adding this to the list - Neonco31

6 Sremmlife 2 - Rae Sremmurd

Though they aren't the worst (but used to be) Rae Sremmurd will NEVER make a good album. Bet me as much as you want and we'll see more of their crap!

This is actually better than SremmLife mostly because of Black Beatles but in the songs it seems that Rae Sremmurd might have finally hit puberty and they have more power in their voice. Espiecally Slim Jimmy. But this album doesn't deserve more than a 1.5/5. In fact it deserves to be more hated than My World 2.0.

If anyone is asking bout SremmLife it's #1 and will stay like that forever - AlphaQ

All rae sremmurd albums suck in my opinion. - Fullwalking

SelfDestruct Should Feel Ashamed For Liking Sremmurd Crap - VideoGamefan5

Wow! Attacking me for my opinions now? It's not like I didn't predict it though. - SelfDestruct

7 Peach Panther - Riff Raff
8 Anti - Rihanna

Honestly I like this album a fair bit. Bar Woo, nothing really stood out as terrible (no, not even Work or Needed Me, the latter of which I actually like), and songs like Desperado, Sex With Me, and Kiss It Better were pretty great. 7/10 - WonkeyDude98

Give It A Break Guys, Why Does Everyone Hate This? , This Is Alright Stuff, I Mean It Has Love On The Brain, Which Is Great, If You Ignore Work, Sex With Me And Needed Me, Than It's A Mediocre 6.0/10 - VideoGamefan5

Rihanna did well on this album. While I guiltily enjoy Needed Me and maybe Work. Everything else was cool like Desperado. So 7.5/10 - AlphaQ

This is obviously Rihanna's best album. Needed Me, Desperado, Kiss It Better, Love On The Brain, Consideration, and even work was a good song in my opinion!

8/10 - MistyMay113

9 Nine Track Mind - Charlie Puth

GaH Charlie Puth is awful. How do my classmates like Charlie's crap? I mean he's du ll. t hough 1 Call Away (-1/5) wasn't as bad as the other. We don't Talk Anymore is rubbish. Besides don't say that Charlie Puth sucks in front of him because he will bite your finger.

At least he isn't signed to Mike WiLL Made It or as I call him Mike WiLL Ruined It - AlphaQ

I'd be shocked if there were an album worse than this. This is almost SremmLife level of atrocious. - WonkeyDude98

I think One Call Away is the only relatively tolerable track, but that's not saying much. It's painful, especially that stupid tribute to Marvin Gaye. - MKBeast

10 The Life of Pablo - Kanye West

Kanye, just stop. Just stop rapping! You have your money, just give up rapping and make the world a better place. - DaWyteNight

Only good thing about this album is that this made Desiigner's Panda more popular. - SelfDestruct

Panda is a terrible song. You can barely understand what the hell he's saying. - railfan99

The Newcomers

? Joytime - Marshmello

The Contenders

11 Views - Drake

Boring and generic music by a rapper who is at this point a lost cause. Drake needs to find a new occupation as it's very obvious he can no longer rap without making other artists look like embarrassments. - Swellow

Between the hollow One Dance, the sludgy Pop Style, the whiny Hotline Bling, and the straight-up reprehensible Child's Play and Feel No Ways, this album is an utter trainwreck. There are about two or three songs that are decent (nothing special though), but other than that... - WonkeyDude98

This is arguably Drake's worst album to date. - SwagFlicks

If you ignore Too Good, Hotline Bling and maybe One Dance. This is a decent 7/10. - AlphaQ

12 Lemonade - Beyonce

This is at #2! Keep it up and get it to #1! Great progress. - SelfDestruct

You know what! Beyoncé is god awful and this album is no exception! You know what! This is probably the worst album I have ever heard in my entire life! - SelfDestruct

Favorite tracks: Don't Hurt Yourself ft. Jack White, Daddy Lessons, Freedom ft. Kendrick Lamar, and Pray You Catch Me

Least Favorite Tracks: Sorry, Formation.

5/10 - MistyMay113

13 What Time It Is - IceJJFish

Time for you to quit rapping, IceJJFish. - AlphaQ

14 Glory Days - Little Mix

This album isn't bad. Not their best album, but still good. - MistyMay113

15 Wildfire - Rachel Platten
16 Coloring Book - Chance the Rapper

Everybody kept talking about how this guy is the next great rapper but he is nothing special. Basically the next Kendrick Lamar, an average rapper who uses weirdness and "artistry" rather than true rap skill to make people believe he is a phenomenal rapper, when he is really just alright at best. - DaWyteNight

17 Encore - DJ Snake
18 7/27 - Fifth Harmony

Total Crap


19 New English - Desiigner

New English? With him it should be called "no English! " - DaWyteNight

20 Joanne - Lady Gaga

Screw you, this album rocks. - Swellow

Just because she make soft rock album, doesn't mean it bad. - BeaM456

I really liked this to be honest - ProPanda

This wasn't terrible! - 906389

21 Islah - Kevin Gates
22 Collage - The Chainsmokers

This was an EP - ProPanda

23 Untitled Unmastered - Kendrick Lamar
24 Scissors - Blood on the Dance Floor

The fact that this is below everything except More Than Ever and Skeleteon Tree saddens me - ProPanda

25 This is Acting - Sia
26 All Grown Up - Brokencyde

This is basically I'm Not a Fan, for the most part, except instead of infuriating and disgusting me, it doesn't affect me.

Best Songs: Roller Coaster, Geronimo, Purplez Delight, Dance Off
Worst Songs: Vamonos, Los Locos, Fire!, Bad Onez, Fire, F*ck That, F*cked Up, Lost in Forever

3.5/10 - NiktheWiz

27 Suicide Squad: The Album - Various Artists

Suicide Squad Sucks - VideoGamefan5

28 Mind of Mine - Zayn

Da hell? Who added this to the list! SMH people now days have no taste - DaWyteNight

29 Hopelessness - Anohni

The awful song Obama is on it, enough said. - Swellow

Like WonkyDude said, it's ironically titled...

30 Wild World - Bastille
31 Swish - Kanye West
32 This Unruly Mess I've Made - Macklemore and Ryan Lewis

I want to like this album a lot more than I do (given I gave The Heist a 9/10, and absolutely loved Downtown). But the name explains its game, because this album completely lacks cohesion or focus, and despite some good songs, they aren't enough. Strong 5/10. - WonkeyDude98

Damn, this album makes rubbish music!
Macklemore, please quit music industry, you are absolutely talent-less guy.

33 Unleashed - Skillet

Yet another childhood rock band that sold out. *sigh* - Teravolt1422

34 Train Does Led Zeppelin II - Train

If Train is comparing their crappy adult contemporary to a mediocre rock band with 20+ cases of plagiarism then they need to break up. - Swellow

35 Blurryface - Twenty One Pilots
36 My Wild West - Lissie
37 E.A.R.T.H. - B.O.B
38 Waves - Kanye West
39 Dystopia - Megadeth

Better album than Super Collider, but not that great to be honest. They haven't released anything outstanding since Countdown to Extinction, which was 24 years ago. - IronSabbathPriest

I hate voting for this, but seriously it wasn't bad at all. - Elina

I honestly prefer Dream Theater's The Astonishing.

Best album ever - VideoGamefan5

40 Adore Life - Savages
41 Sit Still, Look Pretty - Daya

This is HANDS DOWN one of the worst albums I’ve ever heard. It’s so corny, basic, and unoriginal. Hide Away, SSLP, Talk, and stuff ALL sound the same. ICYMI and Words also copy off each other and rip off This Is What You Came For. I also detect a little You da One by Rihanna (Love Of My Life) and Ain’t It Fun by Paramore (Cool).

43 For All Kings - Anthrax

This and Dystopia shouldn't be here - Metalmaniakkk

44 Vroom Vroom - Charli XCX
45 Things Our Bodies Used to Have - Good Willsmith
46 Bewährung Vorbei Ep - Fler

In the early 2000s Fler was one of the pioneers that made German rap big. He is technically very limited, but his gangster rap was dark and atmospheric, and most of all creative and original. He had a distinctive style.
Now it's 2016 and he released 5 tracks with a duration of 15 minutes all together, all of which sound exactly like Drake. Same flow. Same beats. Same pronounciation. The only difference is that he raps in German. And with worse lyrics. Drake raps about personal things, relationships, feuds and his childhood. Fler raps about fellow rapper Kollegah's (arguably Germany's number one rapper of the 2010s) lack of realness. Yeah, Fler. Tell one of the most original and skilled German rappers about being real while copying a successful and well known superstar. Sure. - Martin_Canine

47 Star Wars Headspace - Various Artists

Flying Lotus, Baauer, Galantis, Bonobo, ROYKSCOPP and ATTLAS all provide solid numbers here. The rest... 5/10 - ProPanda

48 Taking One for the Team - Simple Plan
49 F*** Everyone and Run (F E a R) - Marillion

It's not the title that bugs me. I just can't find myself to enjoy any of these songs.

50 Sex Love and Pain II - Tank

Remember how I said that R. Kelly's Black Panties was one of the worst failed attempts at a "r&b" album ever? Well this isn't much better. This is nowhere near the first SLP album, and it is filled with awful features, beats and lyrics. There were only a few good and memorable songs, the first song on the album "SLP2" was pretty good, and the song with Boyz II Men, but almost everything else was either forgettable or trash.

Still not as bad as Jeremih's Late Nights or Chris Brown's Royalty but it's up there.

4.5/10 - DaWyteNight
