Top Ten Worst Albums by Good Artists

The Contenders: Page 9

161 Unapologetic - Rihanna Unapologetic - Rihanna
162 These Days - Bon Jovi These Days - Bon Jovi
163 Eminem - Recovery Eminem - Recovery

This is a great album, a improvement after those 2 album which bombed. Plus Lil Wayne isn't even bad on this album. Sure he sucks, but this is the only song that Lil Wayne manages to improve. - Mumbizz01

164 Three Days Grace - Life Starts Now Three Days Grace - Life Starts Now
165 1989 Taylor Swift 1989 Taylor Swift

The album featuring the single worst song in the history of popular music, "Shake it Off". Darned thing ruined everything about life for me.

166 Jethro Tull - Under Wraps Jethro Tull - Under Wraps
167 The Flaming Lips and Heady Fwends - The Flaming Lips The Flaming Lips and Heady Fwends - The Flaming Lips
168 Raditude - Weezer 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.

169 Smells Like Children - Marilyn Manson Smells Like Children - Marilyn Manson
170 Ultraviolence - Lana Del Rey 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?!

171 The Red Shoes - Kate Bush The Red Shoes - Kate Bush
172 The Beekeeper - Tori Amos The Beekeeper - Tori Amos
173 Hot Space - Queen Hot Space - Queen
174 Ghosts I-IV - Nine Inch Nails Ghosts I-IV - Nine Inch Nails
175 Yellow Submarine - The Beatles 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

176 The Black Keys - Turn Blue The Black Keys - Turn Blue
177 Kasabian - 48:13

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

178 Screaming Bloody Murder - Sum 41 Screaming Bloody Murder - Sum 41

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

179 Take Me Home - One Direction 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.

180 Sexy As Hell - Sarah Connor 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
