Albums You Dislike From Artists/Bands You Like

45 posts in this topic

I was looking through some things when I remembered that even though we may enjoy some of the artists involved with our tastes in music, we might not like every album that they put out. Whether it was because they took a new direction with themselves and misfired or you thought what they were doing just confused you, these are albums that you likely wouldn't come back to again from beginning to end unless you were forced to after your first listen to them.

I'll kick things off by saying that even though I really did enjoy these artists back in my middle/high school days (and still do in a sense today), I never really liked Korn's second album Life Is Peachy all that much at all. While there were a couple of songs that were still enjoyable to me (including their cover of Ice Cube's Wicked), most of the album just felt like it was forced and didn't hold much coherence with itself. It's like songs either were unfinished (such as Twist or their cover of Low Rider) or didn't hold much favor to me at all, even back then (such as A.D.I.D.A.S.). I mean, in a sense, the only reason why I went and got the album myself because I wondered what the fuck the shadowy figure in the mirror was supposed to be, and even then I didn't really get that answer all that well! To this day, I still wonder why people hold this album in particular with high regard.

What albums from artists that you enjoy did you not like as much as you had hoped you would have?

The Foo Fighters newest album Sonic Highways was an album that I didn't like because it was a pretty mundane and boring album.

I like Coldplay (mainstream compared to most other artists I like, but whatever). But Ghost Stories felt a little weak. Usually they pack very strong melodies in their songs, but with this album it felt like with each song they were making their way to a climax, which they ultimately never reached.

I don't know if I should say "dislike," but The Least We Can Do is Wave to Each Other by Van der Graaf Generator is one of their weakest efforts from the '70s. Outside of "White Hammer" and "After the Flood," there's not much to really latch onto. Sure, there's still that great interplay between Hammill, Jackson, and Banton (which makes me doubt whether or now I should even consider it as a candidate for this thread), but compared to the heavyocity of H to He, Who am the Only One and The Quiet Zone/The Pleasure Dome and the scope of Pawn Hearts, there's not much to really latch onto. It feels like a first draft of H to He with a marginally better remastering job.

I love Joan Jett so much, but honestly, Sinner is her most lackluster in her discography. I really don't know why other than it's kinda disjointed. I dunno.

Regarding Life Is Peachy, I actually consider that one of my favorites because it's so all over the place. After how relentlessly dark their debut was (not to say Peachy wasn't just as dark sometimes), I found it a refreshing change of pace to hear an album where half the time it sounds like they're just screwing around in the studio and having fun. How well the dumb shit that results from this (Twist, Lowrider, etc.) is received will come down to taste, but personally those moments still manage to make me smile a little. It's the kind of thing you wouldn't hear much from them after their commercial success really ramped up (the Earache My Eye cover on Follow the Leader being probably the last example of it). And having both the silly and serious elements together like that seems incoherent but fits the theme they were going for with the album title: for the most part life for them is all fine and fun on the surface, but the fun is there to try to balance or distract from the darker undercurrent, which never fully goes away (and indeed occasionally rears its head in ugly ways).

If any Korn album fails to impress me, it would be Untitled. It just strikes me as See You On the Other Side without the energy and all-in commitment to the idea that made that album endearing.

On the topic of another band, I haven't been able to get into any Lacuna Coil album from Shallow Life onward. Their work before then tended emphasize an overall sound/atmosphere in their songs, to the point that lyrics were really not all that important to me. It made for some beautiful/haunting moments that really stuck with me, and made them a favorite band of mine during my college years. With Shallow Life and Dark Adrenaline (haven't checked out Broken Crown Halo) they brought vocals to the front and made them the focus. And while I won't ever protest to hearing more of Cristina Scabbia, it really brings to attention how meh their lyrics are, and listening to so much of Andrea Ferro (who also seems to get more focus) sometimes feels like playing the Knuckles stages in Sonic Adventure 2 --- I deal with it because I have to in order to get back to the parts I like. Dark Adrenaline tried going with a heavier sound similar to Karmacode to try to improve things, but unfortunately all that did was make me want to break out Karmacode and listen to that again.

Besides BLKKK SKKKNHEAD, Yeezus by Kanye West was really underwhelming. At least 808's and a Heartbreak had some great hits like Love Lockdown or Heartless.

Also I'm not a fan of Nothing Was The Same and If You're Reading This It's Too Late by Drake

Synchestra is my least favorite album Devin Townsend has made.

But all things considered I don't really dislike it. I just don't adore it like I adore the rest of his albums.

I really get the impression with Encore that Eminem was sort of trolling his audience. We know from the albums he made afterward that he still has talent, so I wonder if for that album he just wanted to see how much stupidity he could get away with. It was as if he was asking, "if I just put whatever dumb shit I want in my songs, will you will still eat it up simply because Slim Shady said it?" The answer, of course, turned out to be no.

I think that Gary Numan particularly for the first half of the 80s made probably his best music (specifically Dance, I, Assassin, Warriors and Berzerker) but everything from The Fury onward becomes quite samey and not really as stimulating and it's also been hard for me to get into the Tubeway Army-era material. It's possible that this is an only temporary thing at least for the latter part though

Additionally I feel the same about Jethro Tull's post-Crest of a Knave output minus a select few songs and I also don't really like Kraftwerk's Radioactivity despite it being pretty cool considering the time it was made and what it does with sounds

I like the first two Scorpions albums with their dreamy, psychedelic vibe but not their acclaimed cheese cock metal streak.

I don't really like True Stories or Naked by Talking Heads, but then again I don't think a lot of people do. In my eyes, they'd have a near perfect discography if they stopped making music after Speaking in Tongues.

Wild Wild Life is a great song tho.

Two more:

While it's hard to call anything NIN has put out really all that bad, I find myself not really going back to listen to With Teeth all that much anymore. While it is still kinda interesting in the sense that it shows where Trent Reznor's head was at, it also struck me as a tad underwhelming when considered as a follow-up to The Downward Spiral and The Fragile (the latter of which also took forever to come out but had a ton more to it). Given the amount of radio play it got it's hard to deny it was still a hit, but another album like that and it probably would've gotten stale pretty quickly. It's probably a good thing Trent cleaned himself up and that Year Zero was such the well-executed idea that it was, otherwise I have a feeling he might've eventually followed the theme of With Teeth himself and faded off into nothing. 

Rob Zombie's Educated Horses is...okay, but again, not one I ever find a reason to go back to. It's great that the guy is as willing to experiment within his style as he is, it's just that Horses just doesn't connect with me at all. Lacks the heavy industrial sound of his first two solo albums, or the presence of John 5 in his last two (seriously, Rob Zombie and John 5 are like friggin peanut butter and jelly together).

I also like every album by the Police except for Outlandos D'Amour. never really did get into "Roxanne" and i think they sound better with the more crisp and sophisticated less punk-y sound that they had on the later albums

Aerosmith is my favorite group of all time, though I can't say that everything they did was good. Two albums come to mind in particular that did have a few good tracks, but are really lackluster compared to the rest of their discography, and if you're thinking Honkin' On Bobo is one of 'em, you're wrong. No, I'm talking about these:

ID2HzRl.jpg68tOdOE.jpg

I gotta say though, the album covers on both of these are pretty damn cool, especially the latter since I love sci-fi B movies.

As both a Skrillex fan and a Diplo fan,I can't believe they put out this flaming piece of shit from another dimension.  It is basically if 2 Chainz was on drugs to be convinced to be on this crap,but seriously.  If anything says "featuring/feat. 2 Chainz" it's already confirmed to be terrible.  (Also,I think I saw product placement for Beats on the album cover.)
