Trying out bands we don't like, part 1

Welcome to another edition of Nazzadan and his coworker Duck_King throw together a big spreadsheet of music and listen to it at work to pass the time. The theme of this episode is bands that at least one of us doesn't enjoy. We found the highest rated album here on Sput by that band, listened to it, and gave a short 1 sentence synopsis of what we thought as well as the rating we gave it on the Sput 1-5 scale. Me - Me DK - Duck_King

DK: 3, First two songs were their classics, and the rest was a bit dull.
Me: 3, Boring at times but had some high peaks
2The Offspring

DK: 3, I realized I just don't like Dexter Holland's vocals, but instrumentally they're good.
Me: 3.5, I liked most of the songs that aren't their big hits. Title track rules.
3Linkin Park
Hybrid Theory

DK: 1.5, I was gritting my teeth through the entire album. Dog shit.
Me: 2.5, Good points, the rapping just got on my nerves. The flow sucked and his voice is bad, Chester is okay
Ten Thousand Fists

DK: 3, I was a bit disappointed in this. Most of the songs sounded the same.
Me: 3, Started to sound way too samey but the t/t is a jam
My Private Nation

DK: 2, Maybe I'm a cynic, but all these songs sound like they're engineered for $
Me: 2, Dragged on and on, but it least it wasn't their dogshit most recent album
6Simple Plan
Get Your Heart On!

DK: 3.5, Went in ready to hate this, and I can honestly say it was way better than I expected.
Me: 3, Some of the features were good and the songs weren't terrible
7Good Charlotte
Good Charlotte

DK: 2, Early 2000's whine rock and generic riffs.
Me: 2, Glad I never got into this band in my youth.
8Bloodhound Gang
One Fierce Beer Coaster

DK: 1.5, I guess even douchebags need music. There was a single track I didn't hate.
Me: 1.5, Very not funny, I guess what's funny has just changed since the mid 90s and the jokes didn't age well
...And Out Come the Wolves

DK: 4, Very good album. I really don't like ska, but this was enjoyable to listen to.
Me: 4, Very good, fusion of punk and ska totally worked imo. Will listen again

DK: 3, Better than I expected. Went on too long, and relied on too many DJ gimmicks.
Me: 3.5, Almost a 4, but went on for a bit too long. Could have been 1 track shorter or more varied
The Art of Drowning

DK: 2.5, I didn't hate it, but it didn't really grab me either.
Me: 4.5, I already loved this. AFI starting to cross over, borderline masterpiece
12The Killers
Hot Fuss

DK: 3, It was alright. I've heard most of the hits off this album, but I just never cared for it.
Me: 3.5, Already heard it, already liked it, first half is super strong then tapers off
13Panic! At the Disco
Vices & Virtues

DK: 3, Some of the tracks were interesting, but nothing overtly pulled me in.
Me: 3, Didn't like it as much as Fever, but made me want to hear their newer stuff
14The Smashing Pumpkins
Siamese Dream

DK: 4, Well crafted and engaging.
Me: 4, Very good, but not as good as Melon Collie imo
OK Computer

DK: 3, I respect the artistry, but I just can't get into this.
Me: 4, Really like the album, but I guess I still don't "get it" when it comes to it being a masterpiece
16Puddle of Mudd

DK: 2, Sounded like a dollar store Alice In Chains.
Me: 2.5, Average bland pop-grunge
17Sugar Ray
Lemonade And Brownies

DK; 2.5, I give it a .5 because of the RR3D song. Aside from that, it was all over the place
Me: 2, Fucking annoying and changed genres every other song
18Smash Mouth
Fush Yu Mang

DK: 2, SOME-body once told me this album's pretty shitty.
Me: 3, Campy cheesy stoner fun
My Own Prison

DK: 3, A bit cheesy at points, but this was well put together and I didn't mind it.
Me: 3, Very safe grungy rock by a man with puffy cheeks
20Jars Of Clay
Jars Of Clay

DK: 3.5, I get now why these guys are Christian rock classics. Well put together album.
Me: 3.5, Liked it quite a bit, much stronger than their other material im familiar with
