10 Good Artists/bands That Got Horribly Shite: Exhibit C

Something something good something something something shite.
Standing on the Shoulder of Giants

Most of Oasis' success and legendary status is down to A) their classic first two albums and B) the in-fighting between the leading men the Gallagher brothers generating continuous interest. Beady Eye, which is essentially OAsis minus Noel Gallagher, have failed to make as much an impact as Noel was their primary songwriter. High Flying Birds, Noel's project, is consequently much, much better and definitely worth checking out.

By no means an utterly shite album, the band's self-titled fourth effort just lacked in heart where previous efforts performed with aplomb.
8Biffy Clyro
Only Revolutions

Though never really shite, the Biffy's fifth album saw them saking off their darker, proggier roots and venturing into radio-friendly sounds. The commercial success was worth their while but followup 'Opposites' was a disastrous double album that had a few decent songs but ultimately buckled under the weight of its own ambition.

Of course, when you make an album that is considered a landmark in a genre, you're constantly under pressure to live up to such a standard and few ever succeed in keeping with the hyperbolic acclaim. Unfortunately, Nas' fourth album was an exercise in failure. He got better again, but this album is definitively shite.
6Goo Goo Dolls
Dizzy Up The Girl

Ugh, 'Iris' such shite. Before this, the Goo Goo Dolls were a pretty awesome punk/alt rock band signed to Metal Blade. They had already achieved success but went one step further with their sixth album, which still had some pretty cool songs but they just got shite after that.
5Michael Jackson

The King of Pop's disappointing followup to the amazing 'Bad' leaned more towards that title. 'Dangerous' is still not a bag album with some great tracks but also a lot of shite. Subsequent albums had even more shite. Not the only reason why Jackson didn't bow out on a high note but still...

Okay, so this album was really just Prince fulfilling contract commitments with Warner Brothers, but people were still obviously going to buy the record and fans deserve better than this. Then again, a lot of what came after was shoddy as well. His prowess as a stage performer even at the age of 56 is still amazing, but his albums since the mid nineties have been mostly forgettable.
3Guns N' Roses
Use Your Illusion II

The weaker of the Illusion albums also heralded the demise of the classic band. Matt Sorum was already in place of Steven Adler but following the departure if Izzy Stradlin the band was just never same. The next album was a passable covers record but then came the most talked about hiatus from album recording in history. Back in '08, 'Chinese Democracy', whilst a decent album in its own right, fropped and did not live up to the band's previous successes. The name Guns N' Roses means nothing now, just Axl shite-ing on a legacy.
Apocalyptic Love

Legendary axeman Slash really made committed faux pas here. Not the worst album ever but the lack of decent hooks and memorable songs makes this one for hardcore Slash fans only. At least Myles Kennedy's vox are alright here. Not up to either of their standards though.
Once Was Not

With their spectacular sophomore record 'None So Vile', Cryptopsy proved themselves as one of the greatest death metal acts of all time and whilst that can never be taken from them, they are also the centre of death metal's worst catastrophe. 'Once Was Not' is not a terrible album by any means but it is workmanlike and unmemorable. However, what came next was beyond the boundaries of abominable shite. 'The Unspoken King' was essentially Cryptopsy gone deathcore. Vile and certainly not in a good way, this duo of albums have been slightly made up for with their recent self-titled release. Forgiven but not forgotten, I say...
