Why don't bad/average albums ever trend?

I feel like the trending albums section of the site should include those that underperform (score-wise). There's no reason that the new Charli XCX shouldn't be trending right now, it definitely has the high number of ratings to warrant it. I know there's been other examples in the past too but I can't think of a ton right now.

I know the average ain't great, but how isn't this trending? It's got 73 ratings at the time of me writing this, which is more than like half the list of trending albums right now.

Another example from earlier in the year. I don't remember ever seeing this trend but it definitely got the attention of a lot of users on this site.

You're Welcome

The only example from last year I can think of right now. Sure the album is dogshit, but it racked up 100's of ratings within like a week. Wouldn't it make sense for this to be labeled as a trending album?

Anyway, thanks for coming to my TED talk.
