|Cds With 1 Song That Keeps It From Being A 5. Part 1.|
Pretty much every 4.5 album has 2-3 songs that are just okay, and that knocks it down to a 4.5 or 4. But there are also a lot of albums that have 1 song that is either so bad or extremely bland, wwhich just kills the mood and makes the album a non-classic. Here are a few examples.
Computer Blue: Cheesey, Unimaginitive, and plain boring. Plus it doesn't really fit with the other songs IMO
All I Need: One of the worst Jay-Z songs on one of his best albums. Not to mention one of the worst beats Kanye West has ever done. Every other song on this album is just awesome, this song just drags the Blueprint down.
|3||My Bloody Valentine|
What You Want: By no means a bad song. Just kinda boring compared to every other song on the rest of the album. I can't skip any other track on Loveless, but I find myself getting bored of this song. That said, I still might move this from a 4.5 to a 5 one day.
Katzenjammer: Seriously. Why is this album so underrated? Even amongst stoners and Kyuss fans, this album gets no love. It's personally my favorite Kyuss album. Even Katzenjammer is a great song, it's just nowhere near as good as all of the other songs. Mainly since the version on the Sons Of Kyuss is better and I'm kinda disappointed they kinda tamed it down. Nontheless, it's a classic in my book. And I will be reviewing it soon.
Seamus: You can call it nitpicky, but this song just totally spoils the album for me, considering how nearly perfect the rest of the songs are.
|6||The Mars Volta|
The Bedlam In Goliath
Soothsayer: Sry guys. I actually like the song now, but it's just garbage compared to the rest of the album.
D'evils: Filler to me. But every other song is pretty much classic. Actually fuck that, they are classic. Just not this.
|8||Nine Inch Nails|
The Downward Spiral
I Do Not Want This: It's grown on me a lot since the first hundred times I've heard it, but still seems like filler to me.
Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers)
Tearz: A good song, but just doesn't fit with the classics on this album. Every other song is just amazing. Still, closer to a 5 than a lot of the other albums on here.
Master Of Puppets
The Thing That Should Not Be: I know i'm gonna catch hell for this one, or be called Cliche. I like the song to be honest, but it just doesn't go anywhere IMO. All the other songs are just way better.
New Star in the Sky (Chanson Pour Solal): The rest of the album is ambient genius. This song is just boring filler to me.
Yo-Yo: Actually a really good song, but I really have to be in the mood for it, which I don't have to be for the rest of the album.
The Golden Section: I hate putting this on here. This album was a 5 for so long, but even the Golden Section really fits with the album, it's just a guy talking about death. And all the other songs are beyond classic. Plus the production is just okay, which I didn't want to admit for the longest time. Still one of the few albums I still consider a Classic despite rating 4.5, I can only say that for 3 other albums.
Dr. Octagon: I like the lyrics, but the beat just bores me to tears. The album is perfect otherwise. Even Bear Witness, and the Gynocologyst skit (Which might be my favorite skit of all time BTW)
Europe Endless: I'm probably going to have to up this to a 4.5. This song goes on too long and the lyrics are just cheesey, even for a Kraftwerk song. But the rest of the album is just amazing
Swordsman: A great song, don't get me wrong, just doesn't belong on the album IMO. Another album I might up to 5 anyway.
|17||Eric B. and Rakim|
Paid In Full
Extended Beat: So many hip-hop heads try and defend this song, but I think everyone secretly knows its a shitty way to end such an awesome album
Slump: One of the other 3 albums I consider a classic despite rating 4.5, in fact I might bump it up to a 5 again. But this song is easily the worst on the album. It's just flat out boring.
Straight Outta Compton
Quiet On The Set: Some people would say somethin 2 dance 2 ruins the album. But I love that song. This son has a bland beat, and the Lyrics aren't really good compared to the other great songs. Still a classic album to me, tho.
The Marshall Mathers LP
The Real Slim Shady: Some say Amityville, but again, I like that song. No doubt there's a flaw on this album. I never really like The Real Slim Shady, despite starting out as a gigantic Eminem fanboy. When I got the album, needless to say I almost always skipped this.
