Top 10 Worst Albums of 2021

Not everything here is my opinion and I have not listened to everything, I only added entries to create this list. Just add what you think are the worst albums of 2021!
The Top Ten
1 Nobody is Listening - Zayn Nobody is Listening - Zayn Product Image
2 Jordi - Maroon 5 Jordi - Maroon 5 Product Image

This album is a snoozefest from start to finish made by a band on autopilot who forgot how to pull off a decent pop song. The guests on the album are only here to save songs from being a total bore and to compensate the lack of ideas. Heck, even "Girls Like You" and "Memories" are better than any song on this album. I liked Maroon 5 back in the 2000s and early 2010s but now they're just a male version of the Pussycat Dolls and have lost their mojo. I guess it's time for them to hang it up so Adam Levine can go solo.

If Adam Levine thinks there aren't anymore bands today in the mainstream, I guess the half-assed music he's been making with his "band" lately is the reason why.

If you want to make pop songs, make a good one. We have enough bad songs today.

4 Spaceman - Nick Jonas Spaceman - Nick Jonas Product Image
5 Sour - Olivia Rodrigo Sour - Olivia Rodrigo Product Image
6 Music - Songs from and Inspired by the Motion Picture - Sia Music - Songs from and Inspired by the Motion Picture - Sia Product Image

The soundtrack is just as lifeless and offensive as the movie itself. It features some of Sia's worst songs, rehashes several melodies and beats from Sia's previous hits and Sia's vocals are more ear grating than ever. If you don't want your brain to shut down, don't listen to this album!

Very disappointed to see what’s Sia has become. She used to be a talented songwriter with incredible vocals. Now she’s turned into a caricature of herself. She fell from grace so hard.

7 Life Rolls On - Florida Georgia Line Life Rolls On - Florida Georgia Line Product Image

Painfully generic as you may expect. Most ballads are too sappy, some songs mix country and rap in the most questionable way possible and the lyrics are full of obnoxious clichés in modern country music. Also, can they just stop saying "Yeah baby!" at the beginning of each song or between verses?

8 The Lunar Injection Kool Aid Eclipse Conspiracy - Rob Zombie The Lunar Injection Kool Aid Eclipse Conspiracy - Rob Zombie Product Image

It's a bit generic at times, but there are good songs in it. I don't think it should be at #4 personally.

9 Zoom In - Ringo Starr Zoom In - Ringo Starr Product Image
10 The Battle at Garden's Gate - Greta Van Fleet The Battle at Garden's Gate - Greta Van Fleet Product Image

Not a bad album, but more often than not, that band failed to impress me. They sound like Led Zeppelin or Rush minus the charisma and Josh Kiszka's vocals become ear-grating after a few listens. I'm sorry to anyone who likes Greta Van Fleet but that's my opinion on them.

The Contenders
11 Let the Bad Times Roll - The Offspring Let the Bad Times Roll - The Offspring Product Image
12 A Lantern and a Bell - Loney Dear A Lantern and a Bell - Loney Dear Product Image
13 Welcome to the Madhouse - Tones and I Welcome to the Madhouse - Tones and I Product Image

Despite a few decent songs, this album is too uneven and flawed. Some songs have questionable production choices and Tones and I's vocals are very painful to listen to on some songs. Luckily she is more bearable on some tracks, but this won't save the album from being a failure.

14 Visionland - YBN Nahmir

That album is so notoriously bad it sparked memes on TikTok and Twitter. On my part, I don't think it's the disaster people say it is. Sure it's generic, sure some songs are really bad, but there are still a few good moments in it.

15 The City Introvert - The Prize Fighter Inferno The City Introvert - The Prize Fighter Inferno Product Image
16 Faith - Pop Smoke

Disappointing posthumous album that is overshadowed by its star power. I hope this is the last posthumous Pop Smoke release we'll have.
