Trying out bands we don't like, part 2

Continuation of the previous list. Rating out of 5, short 1-2 sentence review of highest rated Sput albums by bands we aren't fans of DK = Duck_King, my coworker Me = me, me
1Barenaked Ladies

DK: 2, There was one song on the album that didn't irritate me with zaniness.
Me: 2, Fuck these guys and their gigglesquee "lolrandumb" attitude
Frizzle Fry

DK: 4, Goofy and dirty. Fun to listen to.
Me: 4, Really enjoyed it, will probably never listen to another Primus album though.
Silver Side Up

DK: 2.5, I'd already heard all these songs way too many times on the radio.
Me: 2.5, Not as bad as I had thought, at best it was "okay"

DK: 1.5, Perfect example of why rock sucked in the 00's. Like off brand Nickelback.
Me: 1.5, Diet Nickelback, but the kind where the sugar substitute gives you mustard gas poisoning
5Theory of a Deadman

DK: 2, First song was alright, rest sounded like a slightly edgier Nickelback.
Me: 2.5, Bland, safe radio rock with a slight grunge edge. Best thing we've listend to since Primus
63 Doors Down
The Better Life

DK: 2.5, Was better than I anticipated, but nothing really stood out.
Me: 2.5, Considering I've only ever heard Kryptonite, this was pretty okay
Extreme Behavior

DK: 2, Only 1 decent track that was the big hit, and it wasn't even that great.
Me: 2, Well produced, his voice is unique, but the songs sucked and were boring/bad
Disclaimer II

DK: 2.5, Started off decent, but really started to drag and it was just too long.
Me: 3, Better than I expected, I dig the singers voice. Instrumentals are weak and the songwritings not great
13 Ways to Bleed On Stage

DK: 2.5, Sounded similar to Seether, with a little more variation. Still, I didn't really like it.
Me: 3, If I could give this a quarter rating, it'd be a 3.25. Definitely better than Seether
10Breaking Benjamin

DK: 2, Nothing outwardly bad, but it sounded like boiler-plate Nu-Metal, which I do not like.
Me: 3.5, Have listened to it plenty of times, guilty pleasure maybe? Don't care, rules.
A Rush of Blood to the Head

DK: 3.5, Didn't like the first half, including the hits, but I really liked Warning Sign, and it picked up from there.
Me: 3, Had a couple hits I recognized, very mellow/chill music. Will never listen again, but wasn't miserable.
Neon Ballroom

DK: 3.5, Sagged a bit in the middle, but a solid album.
Me: 3.5, Solid radio-grunge, wouldn't mind hearing songs off this again
Definitely Maybe

DK: 3. First track was good, the rest was solid, but I don't care much for their vocals.
Me: 3.5, Still don't see the big deal about these guys, but it was good british invasion throwback
14Rage Against The Machine
Rage Against The Machine

DK: 2.5, Never cared for RATM, and this album was just more of the same.
Me: 4, Started off thinking it was annoyingly edgy and angsty, but then I put myself in the time and age it was written in and it got way better
15Counting Crows
August And Everything After

DK: 3, Good album, but nothing really jumped out and wowed me.
Me: 3.5, Dug it from start to finish, Adam Duritz has a very unique voice

DK: 3, Was never a big fan. Decent songs, but the proto-hipster shit grates on me.
Me: 4. Opinion hasn't changed since the last time I listened to it. Great, fun album.
Sixteen Stone

DK: 2.5, Solid songwriting brought down by almost-parody vocals.
Me: 2.5, Song or two I liked, but overall not very good

DK: 1.5, This shit is like Linkin Park on the opposite side of the spectrum.
Me: 4, Grew up listening to this album, more mature than Enema(which I prefer)
19Third Eye Blind
Third Eye Blind

DK: 2.5, Liked it better than Blink, but I wasn't drawn in. Still, I didn't hate it.
Me: 4, Sad, emotional, catchy, good
20Dinosaur Jr.
You're Living All Over Me

DK: 4, Much more raw and engaging than I expected knowing their later work.
Me: 3.5, Catchy at points, boring and droning at others
