Most disappointing album

Guest Berry

Recommended Posts

Which new release have you anticipated with excitement for months, only to find when it's released that it's complete shite? I remember nearly wetting myself while I looked forward to Skid Row's Subhuman Race, but I sold it after only a few listens because I was so disappointed. I've kept hold of Scorpions' Eye II Eye, but it rarely gets played apart from the excellent A Moment In A Million Years.


On the other side of the coin, I seem to be one of just a handful who actually like Def Leppard's Slang. Musical taste is a curious thing!


By the way, I'm running a sweepstake on how long it is before someone mentions Dokken. :D

T-Bone, please do me a favor and go and listen to your Motel California again. I love Ugly Kid Joe and Motel was a great album!, Listen to songs like "It's a Lie", "Would You Like To Be There", "Dialogue", "Shine", "Undertow" and "12 Cents ". It's a great album. You can't expect another Menace To Sobriety, which in my opinon is the best hard rock album ever.

I agree I have hundreds that I could put down,but the one that sticks out bigtime are The Cars- Candy-o follow-up Panorama.That touch n go song sounds like Bonanza.I expected Little Jo and Hoss to come riding up.

I like Queensryche's Promised Land, but it took a while to grow on me. They lost me after that though.


The new Def Leppard is a good album, but it's not a good Def Leppard Album. It's more consistent and original than Euphoria, which tried a bit too hard to be Adrenalize part 2, but not quite what I was hoping for.

David, I listened to UKJ Motel California many times and I still don't like it. There doesn't seem to be any flow on the cd. It's like they abandoned their musicianship to try and be the next Rage Against The Machine. America's Least Wanted was great and they changed to a little edgier sound for the Menace to Sobriety cd, but it too was still very good. This was too much of a drastic change for me to give it any credit. Sorry :(

Diddo jason. Actually, I didn't like Push Comes To Shove that much either. Jackyls debut was the best.

I think Santers blew it big time with Guitar Alley. Following Racing Time with that crap was a huge mistake.


Anything Helix did after No Rest For The Wicked was kind of limp.


Twisted Sister after You Can't Stop Rock And Roll....no thanks.


I thought Frontiers, by Journey, sucked.

Well I was actually speaking as an entire album. 4 or 5 good songs and then nothing but filler does not make a god album. I also think it is where the rot began with Journey....until they put it right by ejecting big bird.


Substitute Chain Reaction for Edge Of The Blade and you have 5 good songs one after another...then? Nothing.

    • Imagine a world where Andrew Wood didn’t die and Mother Love Bone was still creating awesome music!
    • “My Icarian Flight” featuring the one and only ADV 😜  
    • lol, this was my thought process too. What about Confess?! I like both bands, but not at the expense of one of them. 
    • I do have to give him credit for sounding exactly the same as he did in 1989...
    • This band can not catch a break. 
    • Well mate here's the deal Firstly I saw them on their first ever tour with Kenny. Yep was great. Then I saw them about 10 times with Erik. Each and every time they were utterly fantastic. Erik is a beast live and one of the best singers I've seen period. Then he leaves and they get Kenny back 10 years on and way past his best imo and quite frankly pretty poor compared to what Erik bought.  For me, no matter how well they play its just not the same without Erik.  If youve never seen the band with Erik you probably wont understand. So yeah I stand by my comment.  I'll probably never see them live again tbh
