Worst Albums of 2018


The Top Ten

1 Day69 - 6ix9ine Day69 - 6ix9ine

This album made me feel something I never expected: Bored out of my mind. This wannabe tough-guy persona, the repetitive, endless attempts at being offensive for the sake of being offensive, and the complete lack of any sort of humor makes this 12 track album feel twice as long.

So basically, this album is the musical equivalent of rustlers on here. - Zach808

This isn't an album. It's an April Fool's joke gone wrong. - Swellow

Don't expect much from someone named 6ix9ine.

There isn't one song without the n-word in it.

2 Invasion of Privacy - Cardi B

Now I'll admit some of the production on this album is pretty good, but that's all that is good. Cardi is a trash rapper and her voice is so annoying. I doubt most people who like her actually like her for her rapping, they probably just like the beats and the hooks. As a rapper, she sounds like a 12 year old and her lyrics take no creativity or skill to come up with. She might even have a ghostwriter (I don't know if it's true but I wouldn't doubt it.) Her lyrics have no kind of personality or anything to them so it really wouldn't matter if someone else wrote them. - DaWyteNight

This album is home to I Like It, which I thought was going to be my least favorite song of the year until Drake's In My Feelings came along. She Bad is also almost as bad, and although I haven't listened to the rest of the album, it's probably trash. - allamassal

Worst album by far. Can't stand her voice.

Pathetic album...
Nicki minaj was, is and will be the queen of rap...

Retardi B sucks đź’€

3 Total Xanarchy - Lil Xan

Not a surprise this is on here. Most rappers that have lil in their stage name are trash. Except maybe Lil Uzi Vert. - CharismaticKat

Worse than I expected - StupidUsername12

This is appalling - coryrevv

4 Kamikaze - Eminem

This album sucks. Stans beware...

Surprised to see this on the list? - DaWyteNight

5 Beloved Antichrist - Therion
6 M A N I A - Fall Out Boy

To this day, this band has not recovered from being featured in the Ghostbusters 2016 soundtrack. - Zach808

Will FOB Stop Making Music already? - AlphaQ

They better change..

Huge disappointment. They went from pop-punk classics, to pop-rock radio hits, to EDM-pop trash. What's next, them making country garbage? - Catacorn

7 Culture II - Migos

What the hell is this album? I'll tell you what it is: it is a cash grab! Why else would they make 24 songs that mean absolutely nothing (other than maybe Culture National Anthem) and can be easily intertwined, all in the same style of music that made them popular? Not only that, this album is boring. The beats go absolutely nowhere, their idea of a hook is just repeating a phrase over and over again, and every song uses racial slurs or derogatory terms against women! There's two tracks I wouldn't mind listening to again (Culture National Anthem and Notice Me), but as a whole, this is one of the most boring, pandering, and unnecessary albums I have ever heard in my life! - AlexZedKawa

A couple decent songs here, but oh man, do these guys not have the ability to keep an album this long from putting me to sleep. - Zach808

MotorSport and Walk It Talk It are just lazy, artless sound. Songs like those are why so many people dislike hip-hop. 1/10 - allamassal

Look yeah... it really just sucks

8 Scorpion - Drake

This album is home to the worst mainstream song of 2018, and is for some reason doing really well on the Billboard charts. - allamassal

KIKI DO YOU LOVE ME. This album was bad and had waay too many tracks. Only good tracks were Nice For What, God's Plan, Nonstop, Emotionless, Don't Matter To Me, Mob Ties and Talk Up - THICCBOI


9 Primal Heart - Kimbra
10 Rise to Glory - Loudness

The Newcomers

? Syre: The Electric Album - Jaden Smith
? Reckless - Nav

The Contenders

11 Thunderbolt - Saxon
12 Reputation - Taylor Swift

Although the first two singles off this album were awful, this was a 2017 album. - allamassal

A reputation is something Taylor does not have. At least, not anymore.

This is just cringe - THICCBOI

Absolute garbage - THICCBOI

13 Unsung Prophets and Dead Messiahs - Orphaned Land
14 America - 30 Seconds to Mars
15 Ye - Kanye West

Kanye West is trash - DaWyteNight

Overrated man

This is a masterpiece. What idiot put it on here. You people saying Kanye's trash probably listen to 6ix9ine and Lil Pump so shut up. - THICCBOI

16 Pounding the Pavement - Anvil
17 Man of the Woods - Justin Timberlake


18 Camila - Camila Cabello

Bad letdown. People thought Camila was going to be different but she just Taylor Swift 2 - THICCBOI

Never Be The Same is just mediocre, although Into It is slightly better. I haven't listened to the rest. - allamassal

19 Tha Carter V - Lil Wayne

Terrible! - DaWyteNight

20 Music for Cars - The 1975
21 Everything is Love - Beyoncé & Jay-Z
22 Gemini - Macklemore


23 Coma Noir - The Atlas Moth
24 Sweetener - Ariana Grande

I guess to me, it's only bad because it's really disappointing. "No Tears Left to Cry" and "breathin'" are the two best songs on the album. Ariana really hasn't delivered on this album at all so not surprised she is heading straight back to the studio to work on her 5th album. - crowdiegal

No Tears Left to Cry and God Is a Woman are two songs I like, but The Light is Coming is one of the worst songs of 2018. - allamassal

I’m disappointed. Almost every song is annoying and whiny. - saturatedsunrise

25 Ephorize - Cupcakke
26 Ice! - Lil Flexer

Most cringe worthy album starting from the title to the lyrics to the beat and the rapper - THICCBOI

27 Pestilence - Hadeon
28 We Beefin’ - Wendy’s

Why the hell does this exist? - CaptainMowzker

We have officially hit the bottom bois - cjWriter1997

Why/10 - AlphaQ

We now have a trap mixtape released by a fast food chain. It’s officially time to stop. - Zach808

29 Father of Asahd - DJ Khaled

It's not out yet, but the first single "top off" is terrible and seeing as it's a DJ Khaled album I can already say without hearing it that it will be more mediocre trash. - DaWyteNight

DJ Khaled gonna come on this list and be saying "we gonna keep winning, we the best music". Well here is another one on the bad albums chart - THICCBOI

You can tell it's bad when DJ Khaled says his son produced it - THICCBOI

In light of "Top Off" and 'No Brainer", we can expect more terrible generic crap from a guy who is threatening to turn into a parody. - crowdiegal

30 Daytona - Pusha T
31 Joyride - Tinashe
32 Falco: Sterben Um Zu Leben - Various Artists
33 Dita Von Teese - Dita Von Teese

Horrible album

34 Amerikkkant - Ministry

Complete rubbish.

35 Nation of Two - Vance Joy

I'd probably like this if I didn't spend most of 2014 having to hear Riptide repeated everywhere, and if the last real indie folk album I listened to wasn't by Natural Snow Buildings, but here we are.

You know how back in the '70s people thought rock music had subliminal messages brainwashing their children into praising Satan? I've got that feeling about this, except instead of brainwashing your child into sacrificing goats, it's brainwashing your child into buying cars and PBR. - BlarchBlaces

36 ? - XXXTentacion

3/10 sad piece of nothing - AlphaQ

37 Cry Pretty - Carrie Underwood
38 Ta13oo - Denzel Curry


39 Heart Break Kodak - Kodak Black
40 Lil Boat 2 - Lil Yachty

Teenage Emotions - Effort = This.

I miss the Lil Boat 1 days where Yachty often had GoodBurberryPerry produce his songs.

Lil Boat 1 was filled with corny lyrics but decent melodies.

Lil Boat 2 is just filled with lifeless 30 Roc-produced songs and weak rapping and you could just label it as any rapper of today.

Baby Daddy sounds like something XXXtentecion would sing, and Self Made is the only half decent song on the album.

41 F.A.M.E. - Maluma

Ugh. - ZeroBlaster

42 Kids See Ghosts - Kids See Ghosts
43 You are Out - Lama Doodle
44 And Justice for None - Five Finger Death Punch

Hey, hey, hey, this album is my all time favorite. this is an awesome album that I absolutely enjoy.

45 Survive the Summer - Iggy Azalea
46 Memories Don't Die - Tory Lanez
47 Bobby Tarantino II - Logic

Gotta love that cover. I think he's supposed to look intimidating while bandaging his hand, instead it just looks like he stared off into space.

Anyway, mixtape isn't that good. Logic's not an interesting or charismatic rapper, he really doesn't do anything to distract from that, beats and flow are alright, I guess. Pretty standard for this new wave of conscious rap (even if it's braggadocio instead of conscious), as I've dubbed it. But, upon hearing the intro skit for the first time, part of my soul turned a deep shade of grey, took a long hard look in the mirror, handed in its resignation, and is now making a living hunting wolves in Alaska and selling their skin online. It's that bad. - BlarchBlaces

48 KOD - J. Cole

KOD is what people who are too cool for trap but apparently not cool enough for Danny Brown listen to. KOD is the edgy version of those guys who came around to your school to teach you about the dangers of drugs. If streaming services were restaurants, and you said you wanted to listen to DAMN., the response would be "I'm sorry, sir, we're out. Is KOD okay? " - BlarchBlaces

49 Liberation - Christina Aguilera
50 Eat the Elephant - A Perfect Circle
