Worst Albums of 2018


The Top Ten

1 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. - AnnieCallie

3 Primal Heart - Kimbra
4 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

Lazy lazy LAZY! What happened to music with meaning in it? - AnnieCallie

It’s not a BAD album, it was just super overloaded and a little bit underproduced. The 1st album had really good productions, there is still good songs here but it’s mostly pretty boring because it’s nearly 2 hours long.

There are 26 songs on this album and each of them are about 4-5 minutes long.

I like Migos but there could’ve been a lot done to make this better. 5/10 - AlphaQ

5 Rise to Glory - Loudness
6 Thunderbolt - Saxon
7 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

8 Unsung Prophets and Dead Messiahs - Orphaned Land
9 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

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

10 Total Xanarchy - Lil Xan

Worse than I expected - StupidUsername12

Bad album, bad boy

True to its name, it gives off the feeling of xanax, which is a polite way of saying "This is boring and drowsy." - BlarchBlaces

Good lord it’s ugly…-1/10 - AlphaQ

The Newcomers

? You are Out - Lama Doodle
? Gemini - Macklemore

The Contenders

11 Pounding the Pavement - Anvil
12 Reputation - Taylor Swift
13 Heart Break Kodak - Kodak Black
14 Camila - Camila Cabello
15 Coma Noir - The Atlas Moth
16 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

17 Ice! - Lil Flexer
18 Pestilence - Hadeon
19 Lil Boat 2 - Lil Yachty
20 We Beefin’ - Wendy’s

Why the hell does this exist? - CaptainMowzker

Why/10 - AlphaQ

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

21 Man of the Woods - Justin Timberlake
22 Scorpion - Drake
23 Music for Cars - The 1975
24 Ephorize - Cupcakke
25 America - 30 Seconds to Mars
26 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

27 Falco: Sterben Um Zu Leben - Various Artists
28 Ye - Kanye West

Kanye West is trash - DaWyteNight

29 Memories Don't Die - Tory Lanez
30 Joyride - Tinashe
31 F.A.M.E. - Maluma

Ugh. - ZeroBlaster

32 Everything is Love - Beyoncé & Jay-Z
33 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

34 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
