  • What's the WORST album you ever purchaced?

    Been seeing a lot of threads relating to good music lately, and I started thinking...

    What's the worst album you bought, thinking it was going to be good or at least OK?

    Mine is Psychostick. I heard a few clips, thought it sounded OK and decided to try my luck. I'm actually a bit embarrassed I own it.
    I don't care about your genre, it's all rock 'n roll to me.

    Guitars
    '00 Hamer (not sure the model)
    '96 Peavey Predator
    Yamaha FG-110 Acoustic
    POS Conrad hollow body bass
    Amps
    Line 6 Spider Valve Mk II
    Roland V405

    It's not much, but I'm proud of it.

          Man, that reminds me I own St. Anger... I just can't get past the snare drum on that album. I just want to scream at Lars to flip the lever down so it actually sounds like a snare.

              Hawthorne Heights - Skeletons.

              I really like their first album, the second album was a significant decline, didn't get the third, don't know why Skeletons would have been any better. I traded it back in in two days towards another disc.

                  Lou Reed's "Metal Machine Music".

                  Maybe "worst" isn't exactly the right word to describe it; more like "unlistenable", and that was intentional, so can it be considered the worst if it hits its mark?

                  Most disappointing was Captain Beefheart's "Trout Mask Replica". The hype was so intense, all signs pointed to instant Nirvanna, and... I never got through the album even once, too ****************ing annoying. I've still got it though; every 5 years or so I put it on for recalibration purposes - ah, THAT'S rock bottom!

                    The 2nd Nativity In Black. Two artists (Slayer and Pantera) were the best ones imo on it. The rest...

                      I bought Joss Stone's Soul Sessions album for my wife, who liked her version of Fell in Love with a Boy. The album version has a different (and not so good) vocal take, and all the other tracks have a different producer. They just sound like a lifeless recording of some bored old men from a cruise ship band limping through a few soul cliches.
                      We're all quite used to buying albums which don't live up to the promise of the single, but that one actually felt like a ripoff.

                        back in the late 90s; a co-worker was like "man, you like pearl jam right? dude, check out creed. you'll love them."

                        i didn't (and still don't) really listen to the radio or follow any of that **************** so i had no idea who this band was. so ... you know ... i bought it to check it out.

                        i threw it out the window of my car on the way home from the store and never talked to that **************************** again.

                          Lester Bangs called it "The Greatest Album Ever Made"
                          One chord is fine. Two chords is pushing it.
                          Three chords and you're into jazz

                            I love the first album, like the second and that duet with Klaus Meine is pretty awesome, what's wrong with this one?
