Top Ten Worst Albums by Good Artists

The Contenders: Page 10

181 Black Sabbath - 13
182 The Flaming Lips and Heady Fwends - The Flaming Lips
183 Raditude - Weezer

So bad it's here twice. Go listen to "Can't Stop Partying" and then cure yourself by watching the "Buddy Holly" video until it breaks YouTube harder than "Gangnam Style". Keep some refreshments nearby.

184 Smells Like Children - Marilyn Manson
185 Ultraviolence - Lana Del Rey

One of the better things about music last year, produced by half of the Black Keys and released by a great artist, and you're gonna ignore this in favor of that "Problem" BS?!

186 The Red Shoes - Kate Bush
187 The Beekeeper - Tori Amos
188 Hot Space - Queen
189 Ghosts I-IV - Nine Inch Nails
190 Yellow Submarine - The Beatles

Except for Hey Bulldog and the other 2 all ready released, the other songs probably at the bottom of popular Beatles songs - westofohio

191 The Black Keys - Turn Blue
192 Kasabian - 48:13

I feel like this is the Ghost Stories of Kasabian. - Rorywilbren

193 Screaming Bloody Murder - Sum 41

This album is terrible! Although the Title track is awesome.

194 Take Me Home - One Direction

One Direction have released four chart-topping albums since 2010. They went from being a classic boyband to a more mature, catchy group. Their first album, Up All Night, is pure pop with cheesy songs. However, the songs are sweet and more real, because the band was working hard at the time. However, Take Me Home, their second album, was rushed and the cheesiness turns in to inauthenticity. Their songs and image became manufactured and unrealistic at this time. The hit single "Live While We're Young" was clearly written to attract attention for the band, even though the song and video were fake.
Now the band has matured into accomplished artists, and have left the pain of this album behind.

195 Pink Floyd - Ummagumma

Wish I could vote for this. I came to the list to see it here, and I voted for Metal Macine Music. Whatever. The live part is actually pretty good, but the studio section is horrible. Sysuphus (penned by Wright) is a four part piece, the first two parts are good, the others are incredibly boring. Grantchester Meadows is okay, I guess, but drawn out and too long. Several Species Of Small Furry Animals Gathered Together In A Cave And Grooving With A Pict, which is totally the easiest title in the world to remember, is the worst song by Pink Floyd. It features... Mouth noises by Roger Waters?... And Scottish poems? *rolls eyes*

The Narrow Way is the best song of the album, which is saying something, because it isn't the greatest thing in the world. It does feature the first vocal performance by Gilmour. And...finally there is The Grand Vizier's Garden Party, which is a snore.

196 Pink Floyd - More
197 Sexy As Hell - Sarah Connor

This is one of the albums with the worst produced beats I have ever heard. Connor tried out a departure from her more soul-oriented sound by replacing it with a pseudo-Britney-esque imagery - you know, trying to sound kinky, creating a bad girl persona and doing some heavy breathing. However, I'm not buying it one second. She tries way too hard while delivering too little. Her voice is too gentle, too nice, not playful enough. On the other hand, one of her first singles was "French Kissing", on which she perfectly fulfilled this album's premise. I widely blame the terrible production for why the album fails at creating a sensual undertone. The cheapest kinds of synthesizers, the trashiest drum machines, the cheesiest stereotypes of EDM, executed on amateur level at best.

It comes to no surprise that the album's best moment is "Still Crazy in Love" - a love ballad. Sarah's always been ahead of the game when it comes to this genre, having a simply angel-like ...more - Martin_Canine

198 The Soft Parade - The Doors
199 Frei - Lafee

After the first seconds you'll think LaFee plays a prank on you. There's something that sounds like a bass guitar and a terribly cheesy synthetic strings. LaFee sings something about her breaking free over this terribly constructed... let's call it a beat. What she means is breaking free from her old label and management, now starting all over again. And then it kicks in: a parody of EDM. There are kicks and claps and there is this one sample that sounds like you would speed up the synth line of an Aqua song and pitch it up. All of a sudden you realize that you've been halfway through the album. And while you're still wondering if you really picked up the right album (the typical LaFee sound has heavy distored electric guitars, keyboards, piano, choir and overall perfectly blends together gothic-oriented Heavy Metal with catchy teen angst anthems), you come to a point where you kind of understand why LaFee, who once topped the German charts, never released anything ever again after ...more - Martin_Canine

200 Talk That Talk - Rihanna
