|Toondude's Top 10 Worst Albums Of 2014|
So with the year finally drawing to a close, everyone on Sputnik is now wrapping rup their lists of their favorite albums of the year. But I'm kinda surprised to see ralmost no lists of people's worst albums of the year. So I might as well make one rjust for the hell of it. Now keep in mind, I didn't listen to everything that came rout this year, and this is just based on my opinion. I'm sure there are people out rthere that actually liked the albums on this list, but for me, they were rather rcrappy. This is also applies to albums that I rated 2.5 or below.
Isolate and Medicate
Seether is just pretty much a mediocre mainstream band overall, and this album is no
exception. Granted it is better than their last two albums, but even so, it's still a Seether
album, which basically means that it's not good at all.
An album that was pretty much dead the moment the artwork showed itself, In Flames
managed to create their most dull and uninspired album to date. Only the first two songs
really appealed to me. Other than that, nothing else to say.
|8||Black Veil Brides|
Black Veil Brides
Honestly, I think these guys could make a good album, and this did manage to come close.
However, this album basically proves that Andy fucking Ballsack just needs to leave this band.
His voice is so unbearably horrible that I'd be more willing to stab nails through my ears.
|7||Capture the Crown|
Reign of Terror
Other than the song "Red Light District," this was just an overall forgettable album. Not to
mention, the lyrics suck as well. While I will commend that it's not unbearably god-awful, it's
everything you would expect from an already mediocre deathcore band.
From Water to War
Yet another bland and overproduced Christian rock album that is honestly ten years too late. I
honestly thought their first two albums were great, but this just falls under the group of
albums that no one is going to listen to after two years of its release.
|5||Theory of a Deadman|
While a vast improvement over their last three albums, it's still your typical, bland radio rock
album. And if that's your kind of thing, then by all means enjoy it. But lets face it, Theory of
a Deadman will always be recognized as "that Nickelback rip-off" band.
No Fixed Address
It's Nickelback attempting to sound like Taylor Swift, what else did you expect?
Release the Panic: Recalibrated
It's bad to make a stain on your career (though granted I did actually like the original album),
but it's worse than to trying to "fix" is by rehashing the same damn production values of your
previous work to an album that was supposed to be different, and then apologizing for it. And
if that didn't make any sense to you, then let me put it to you straight. This sucks, the
original was WAY better.
|2||Family Force 5|
Time Stands Still
Crunkcore is still alive...? Wow.
|1||Thousand Foot Krutch|
Quite possibly the most uninspired, watered-down, lazy, and forgettable release I've listened to in years. And that alone is an achievement in
my opinion. Never in my life have I ever come across and album that was just unbearably dull and disgustingly awful. Pretty much the
moment I listened to the first song, I immediately placed that 1 rating on this album. Not only did Thousand Foot Krutch crap on their "legacy,"
they pretty much killed it. I doubt they'll ever get their thumbs out of their asses at this point.
|I'm sure people have their worst lists ready on them, but I haven't seen any on here yet. Maybe I'm just early.|
|right so i know im on my own saying this but im immensly annoyed BVB is on here, big fan|
|haven't heard any of those, thank god|
|I still think 2 is the worst, but yeah these albums really suck.|
|Toon army? Black and white shirt with a beer belly underneath?!|
|the year isn't over tho|
|the only one i listened to was 9 and maaan shit was terrible. not gonna check the others for obvious reasons|
|haven't heard any, thanks for the heads up|
|"Maybe I'm just early."|
yeah you are because there's almost a month left of this year
|why would you listen to any of these|
|I only listened to 1, 2, 3, 6 and 9 because my friends or brother like them. I knew they were gonna be crap, but I had to confirm the exact quantity.|
|Not trying to defend Isolate and Medicate,but I don't think it's really fair to say an album is
destined to be bad simply because the band that released it has a bad reputation. |
|Only heard 9 and that was just awful.|
|"Toon army? Black and white shirt with a beer belly underneath?!"|
i love you buttery. i'm even less of a sunderland fan than a magpies fan but still
|Yeah 9 would be on my worst list too.|
|Agree with most of you, 9 is horrible.|
|I think Unleashing My Demons trumped 10 times over anything on this list this year.|
|"the year isn't over tho"|
Well, there's nothing else coming out this year that peaks my interest so I figured better now than never.
|4 and 8 weren't really that bad|
|Yeah I kinda dug 8, hard 2.5|
|the taylor swift album needs to be here|
|so you think Nickelback is bad?
damn, your taste is soo unique :3|
Haven't listened to that, not planning on it either.
