|10 good songs from bad (or mediocre) albums|
I'm mainly trying to pick songs from bad albums here, but I made a couple of exceptions. Also these are in no order. Do you all agree with these picks, do you dislike these songs anyway, what songs from bad albums do you all like?
Castle - Arguably the best 'Hailey song' of his entire career. The story-telling structure in this song was one if its strongpoints. It being a letter was interesting (although familiar) and the rest of the album could have benefited from ideas like it.
Speedin' Bullet 2 Heaven
Handle With Care - Not the best Kid Cudi song, but far from the worst, which is impressive considering this is one of the worst albums of the decade. The way this one builds up shows that Kid Cudi can handle this style, if only for one track.
Survival - The beat on this thing is already fairly unique, if a bit forgettable. Not to mention this is one of the only tracks on this album that is more Hip-Hop than pop. It does feel a bit like an intro but I think that's the point, this is still one of the best Drake songs I've heard.
Ganja Burns - She agrees that this is the best song on the album. The 2 songs after this, as well as this track are the only 3 good songs on a 19 track album. The flow on this song is great and some of Nicki's best, The beat borders on beautiful and the hook surprisingly isn't bad.
|5||Fall Out Boy|
American Beauty/American Psycho
Immortals - There isn't really much to this one being enjoyable. It sounds like Just One Yesterday but a bit more streamlined. Just One Yesterday may be my best song on Save Rock and Roll. With all of that said it was easily the most enjoyable song on ABAP.
|6||Escape the Fate|
Remember Every Scar - I was very split between picking something from I Am Human and Hate Me, but ultimately I Am Human has more songs that aren't bad, it just has one of the worst song orders I've ever seen. Hate Me barely has anything of value, but with that said Remember Every Scar is a diamond in the rubble.
Notes From the Underground
Eraser - Honestly an interesting look into Sheeran's views on his fame, it's better than the umpteenth love song.
|10||Three Days Grace|
I Am Machine - I was going to pick Painkiller but it would have looked silly. What I mean by that is that I just said Ed Sheeran has made too many love songs, as much as I love 3DG, I believe there are too many love/breakup songs in their catalog, and Painkiller added to that despite it sounding good. I Am Machine wasn't a love song and still is a jam.
