Worst Albums of 2018


The Top Ten

1 Day69 - 6ix9ine Day69 - 6ix9ine

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

Don't expect much from someone named 6ix9ine.

Extreme mode: Write a review about the album without using the words "pedophile", "Skittles", "screaming", "n-word", "loud" or any synonyms. - BlarchBlaces

Challenge accepted. Already wrote one. Although I didn't check, I am sure I used none of these words. - Martin_Canine

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

2 Total Xanarchy - Lil Xan

Worse than day69 - Not_A_Weeaboo

Lil xan sucks. - DarkBoi-X

I listened to this album last night. It was just as bad if not worse than I imagined it would be. - Smashball23

This is appalling - coryrevv

3 M A N I A - Fall Out Boy

Can't you just let them try something new then what they have done for over 10 years

What happened to FOB - iliekpiez

For all fall Out Boy fans who gave up on them this year they dropped an EP later this year And 2/3 songs on It were PURE 2001-2009 FOB nostaliga maybe There actuly is hope for this band

What do we want? POP-ROCK HITS! When do we want them? RIGHT NOW! We seriously don't need some EDM influence on the pop-rock genre. That sounds like garbage... - MissRWBY202

4 Invasion of Privacy - Cardi B

Bodak yellow and Be careful is great. But the whole album? Literally a mess. Her voice annoying in many parts. She is just a new rapper which people overhyped in. Plus, she is so problematic and have no good manner. But I can understand because she was a stripper back then. I'd rather listen to nicki minaj than this.

You sexualized yourself in front of the camera. More like you are giving up privacy for some quick cash. - MChkflaguard_Yt

The most mediocre album of 2018. - jameshoward

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

5 Amerikkkant - Ministry

So bad even the cover is facepalming. - AlphaQ

Complete rubbish.

6 ? - XXXTentacion

This should've been number 2 only behind the skittle rapist. Just because he's dead doesn't mean I have to like his music. The song where he guilt trips a girl by threatening suicide if she breaks up with him went to number one on the charts. Need I say more

The? means "is this even music? ". - MChkflaguard_Yt

3/10 sad piece of nothing - AlphaQ

7 Ye - Kanye West

Kanye is overrated

This album is beautiful. The losers who say this album is trash are losers

This is actually good. - AlphaQ

Overrated man

8 Kamikaze - Eminem

Stupid mumble fans are commenting here

He needs to stop trying so hard to stay relevant, he is so last generation - Izalien

Eminem is now the pioneer of "Whine rap". This album sucks. - Mumbizz01

Lol people are just mad that this was voted by fans to be the best album of the year. And it wasnt even close.

9 Culture II - Migos

24 filler tracks, no lyrics, no substance, only repetitive adlibs and ear poisoning hooks. The only good songs were Narcos, Walk It Talk It, and Stir Fry. - jameshoward

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

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

10 Origins - Imagine Dragons

Worst Imagine Dragons album. -Avery

A few song are good, but it's a pretty mediocre album. - Userguy44

Trash - iliekpiez

Good album - DarkBoi-X

The Contenders

11 Deathreats - Tom MacDonald

Try hard

12 Binge - Machine Gun Kelly

I hate it.

13 Beerbongs & Bentleys - Post Malone
14 Dummy Boy - 6ix9ine

Even worse than Day69.

Better than Day69 at the very least. - MChkflaguard_Yt

It's 6ix9ine, anything else to say? - AlphaQ

You know as someone who listened to both Day 69 and this, I have got say this. Dummy Boy is worst than Day 69. Sure Day 69 was bad too, but in a way I could at least see the appeal of why someone could get into it. Dummy Boy on the other hand though, I'm not even sure if 6ix9ine fans would like it. 6ix9ine on this album tries to go for a more Pop rap style and it does not work. The guest features on here range from okay (A Boogie With Da Hoodie and Tory Lanez), to bad (Nicki Minaj, Lil Baby, and Kanye West), to absolutely Disgusting and Horrible (Anuel Aa and TrifeDrew). Kanye, why did you agree to this? First I love It with Lil Pump, then being featured on 6ix9ine's album (twice!), and now that terrible guest verse you gave on X's recent Posthumous album. Also Tory Lanez, you were featured on one of best songs off of Cashmere Cat's 9 album and made two good hit songs from 2016. You can do better than to work with 6ix9ine. The production here is pretty bad too. The more pop rap ...more - Smashball23

15 Scorpion - Drake

This is drake's worst album. In my feelings and God's plan are absolute cancer.

This album would've been a letdown if it had had anything to live up to. I mean seriously, who really takes Drake seriously as a rapper in 2018? 2018 Drake is a pop star who raps for all I care. - DaWyteNight

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

16 I Love Friday - Ilovefriday
17 Beloved Antichrist - Therion
18 Litmas - Jake Paul Litmas - Jake Paul
19 Weeaboo Paradise, Vol. 1 - Lil Meerkat

This had the Bohemian Rhapsody cover everyone is talking about. - ShrekTheGoat

This is just 24 tracks of Amateur soundcloud rap garbage. The rapping is just bad, the lyrics themselves are usually about nothing but Sonic, Fanfiction, Bodypillows, and Anime and just cringy. The Intro alone has him saying ''Make Ya Scream Meerkat'' over and over again. It's not even funny. The guest features on here are just as bad if not worse than our main performer. Like the atrocious autotune from Submarine Man on the song I'm Richer Than You. (A song which goes on for SEVEN MINUTES!) In fact, four or five of the guest features on here are just verses from other famous rappers like Sheck Wes, Riff Raff and 6ix9ine that Lil Meerkat just lazily edited into the beats. The beats here are poorly made like they were made in like two or three minutes. It also has a cover of Bohemian Rhapsody for some reason and it's awful. This feels like another one of those meme like novelty albums, only this one is not even funny. If you want good novelty rap, check out YouTubers Azerrz and Akeem ...more - Smashball23

20 Camila - Camila Cabello

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

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

21 America - 30 Seconds to Mars

Most disappointing album of 2018, why did does this have to sound like Boring Cheesy Electropop. - Soulstealer

22 Primal Heart - Kimbra
23 Cry Pretty - Carrie Underwood

More pop schlock. Great.

24 Oil of Every Pearl's Un-Insides - Sophie
25 Ta13oo - Denzel Curry

Denzel Curry taking L's every day now

SMH another overrated album

This album would've been disappointing if it had anything to live up to.

The first three or so songs were good, but then the album went downhill fast with generic trap bangers. I was expecting more from this album, but I guess denzel just isn't my kind of artist... - DaWyteNight

26 Rise to Glory - Loudness
27 Pray for the Wicked - Panic! at the Disco

This album is so bad, it makes 6ix9ine sound good! Every song sounded like it was made by a 4 year old, the vocals and instrumentals are God awful, and all in all, the absolute worst album I've ever listened to! It's horrible, generic, rushed and damn abysmal!

Explain why though. You say certain elements are awful, but you never explain why they are awful. - purple8

This album is great, why does this site hate panic so much sjsjsks

28 Man of the Woods - Justin Timberlake


29 Thunderbolt - Saxon
30 Catharsis - Machine Head
31 Everything is Love - Beyoncé & Jay-Z

No, everything is not love. What an idiotic title, but what else can you expect from beyonce and jay-z? - DaWyteNight

32 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

33 Music for Cars - The 1975

Yo what this isn't a album

34 Joytime II - Marshmello
35 Unsung Prophets and Dead Messiahs - Orphaned Land
36 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.

37 Gemini - Macklemore


38 Skins - Xxxtentacion

No this one is good - DarkBoi-X

39 Pounding the Pavement - Anvil
40 Zoo - Russ

What this is a good album! Who put it here? - DaWyteNight

Boring album, try better next time - LightningStrike

Another L for russ

41 Tha Carter V - Lil Wayne

This album was good - ShrekTheGoat

He's irrelavant

Terrible! - DaWyteNight

42 Ice! - Lil Flexer

Terrible album - LilliamPumpernickel

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

43 Astroworld - Travis Scott

This is pretty good to be honest

good album - ShrekTheGoat

Travis Scott sucks as a rapper - DaWyteNight

44 Coma Noir - The Atlas Moth
45 Father of Asahd - DJ Khaled

And it never came out... - DaWyteNight

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

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

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
