Here are some of my worst.
fuel's angles & devils. that cd blows so hard.
The Fray - How to Save a Life, Coldplay's X & Y, maybe the newest R.E.M. CD (old stuff is still awesome), U2's Achtung Baby & How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb.
I don't buy that many CDs, and most of what I buy now is artists I directly want to support, so quality ratio is still damn good
I am not going to say these were horrible albums, just a really big disappointments to me.
Third eye blind- blue (I loved their previous work, and was waiting on that one for a long time, and I just really didnt like it)
Bad Religion- Everything after process of belief (they used to be one of my favorite bands, and their music is just crappy to me now)
Pennywise- everything after straight ahead ( not digging any of the newer stuff)
Kamelot- poetry for the poisoned (loved all of their other work, I think it was apparent in the sound that nobody was digging it anymore, and they just finished that album to be done)
Metallica- st anger (Do I really need to explain this one?)
Alexisonfire- old crows, young cardinals (loved all of their past work. That cd just didnt do it for me)
I am sure there are more, but those are the ones that are the most prevelant in my mind at the moment.
As someone who was raised on Meteora and Hybrid Theory, yeah...
And people might disagree with this:
Besides That Was Just Your Life and All Nightmare Long, the album just didn't do anything for me. I found it kinda boring. I'd hate to say it, but I prefer Load over DM. I also really hated the guitar tones. Not sure if it was because of the production, but they sounded very thin and muddy.
I'm going to have to say Cannibal Corpse first cd.Except its kinda like a really bad 80's horror movie.It's soooooooo bad that it's good.Two for one kinda thing I love and hate it.
Minutes to Midnight has to be the album that made me stop liking Linkin Park when I was like 11. First time I ever experienced selling out.
The first chickenfoot cd was extremely boring imo and I reallly don't like Sammy Hagar(only in for Satch)
this was probably the last blind purchase I ever made
The worst CD I've ever bought was some random local rap CD from some dude in Venice Beach, California. Worst rapping ever.
Black Sabbath - Technical Ecstasy
STP - Tiny Music...
Meshuggah - Obzen
Buckethead - Electric Tears
The latest efforts by Avenged Sevenfold and Escape The Fate are a bit of a let down.
I know a few people will be thinking "Were any of their albums good?"
I usually try to listen to things before and I only buy if I am super pumped about it.
Trying to think....
One i bought that was absolutely awful was The Used - Artwork.
God in heaven....so bad...
If there's one good thing about the availability of music on the 'net, it's that it protects you from getting bitten by sucky blind buys.
Last one I can remember where I bought and thought "Wow... that was a waste of money" was Rush's Vapor Trails. More because of the crappy mix & master than the songs.
thanks for this thread! Made me go look at my cds and find many lost classics to go listen to!!
Re-discovered Martin Taylor - Solo
Rabih abou Khalil,
Sworn Enemys first cd. I had heard Arch Enemy from a friend, and thought to myself "im gonna go buy me some fuckin Arch Enemy n rock out". Well by the time I made it to the cd store, I couldnt quite remember the band name and asked the guy at Quonset Hut what it could be. I could only remember the 'enemy' part and he said something like "oh yeah bro, thats Sworn Enemy you want bro, this shit goes hard, bro, bro". So i went out to the car, popped that fucker in, and drove away. It was so generic and boring I turned around, and tried to return it. I explained the mistake, and figured since the guy in there knows me since I buy metal cds on a weekly basis, he'd understand that I didn't want generic hardcore, but some ass kicking metal. He didn't see it that way. I was so pissed I threw the disc on the floor n smashed it right there.
a few i regret buying but i wouldn't say they were horrible
Amon Amarth -Surtur Rising
Immolation -Majesty & Decay
KoRn -KoRn III: Remember Who You Are
Slayer -World Painted Blood
Snoop Dogg -Paid Da Cost To Be The Boss
The Faceless -Planetary Duality
Get Rich Or Die Trying soundtrack (this one is pretty shit )
Not sure about worst but most disappointing was definitely Spys4Darwin
The worst cd I ever purchased was a tape cassette.
It was metallica's album with the black cover and the snake on it.
it had just come out.
I took it to my friend's house and we listened to it.
I was so depressed.
We played guitar together for a little while.
We listened to a song he had written called "I hate the weather"
As I was leaving his house he said "hey man don't want your new tape?"
And in his doorway I stopped for a moment and said "naw man.. that's alright"
Selling out? Linkin Park was never really close to being an underground act, they gained popularity pretty much as soon as "Hybrid Theory" came out.
The only song I liked from it was All Nightmare Long.
