These are five albums from bands I like that let me down.
|1||The Mars Volta|
This album seem to be rushed out on to the market. Shoddy production, overabundance of noises, uncoordinated musical styles. This is by far the weakest of the Mars Volta albums.
|2||A Perfect Circle|
Instead of using their tremendous abilities to release a third album of original material APC phoned it in and released a mediocre at best cover album. Passive is the only saving grace.
The only song I liked was "Anna Molly," the rest was very uninspired by their standards.
On Letting Go
I loved Juturna when it first came out, I thought they had great potential; however, despite promises of musical evolution, they released the same record, only worse.
I really don't understand the appeal of this album, and I know I am in the minority in that regard. It was ballsy for them to do, and I respect that, but this is not an album that I like listening to. Give me The Bends, In Rainbows, and of course OK Computer over this album any day.
|Where's St.Anger, Audioslave, Black Rain, so on...?|
|with albums he doesn't care about|
|I could see Kid A being a bit of a letdown if you read all of the hype it gets on here. It's killer, but it didn't change my life like it apparently has done to so many people.|
|1 is great. I really don't understand all the hate on this album on Sputnik. Yes, it's their weakest effort, but still has some incredible stuff on it. Still 4 material.|
5 is overrated as is all of their stuff on sputnik, but it's far from disappointing.
|1 and 5 rule, just so you know.|
|It's weird that you're saying you don't enjoy Kid A rather then that you think its overrated. I like that you're saying that instead of ITS NOT TAT AMAZIN, but I enjoy the shit out of that album.|
|I don't understand the hate of 3m it actaully really bugs me. Every song is really enjoyable, I really, really like it. |
|love 3, 1 is quite good too, and I agree on 5 even though it's better than In Rainbows imo|
|Roar at 1. People who think it's bad usually haven't listened to it enough. I'm not necessarily saying this about you but this took seven listens for me not to hat...now it's my second favorite volta album. Frances still wins but Day of the Baphomets is their second greatest song period.|
|5 is their only album I don't find overrated, it's classic. 4 was a letdown.|
