|Most Disappointing Releases 2018|
These artists either let me down, frustrated me, or pissed me right off.
Let me know of any i may have missed.
What a shit way to start 2018. After Bloodstone & Diamonds, and Unto the Locust, I was expecting a lot more than what Robb Flynn and Co delivered.
How to Socialise and Make Friends
After their excellent debut, and the release of "The Opener" in 2017, (the first single off this album), I had high hopes for a great follow up album. Alas, all i got was a bland offering, that sounded way too much like their self titled album. Don't get me wrong, I like Georgia Maq's vocals and lyrics, and Kelly and Thomo can stomp out a great rythym section, the end result was just not the what i had hoped for. Still a good album, but not a great album.
I didn't have high hopes for a great Animal Collective album in 2018, and this did not prove me wrong.
Not even close to Opera Oblivia, DISSAPOINTED!
The American Dream
From interviews I read before the album dropped, the terrible singles, as well as the original drummers departure, this album was a 100 to 1 chance of satisfying my needs, it failed.
I Don't Think I Can Do This Anymore
I Don't think i can do this anymore, is not just what the band is telling itself, but it is what I said when i got halfway through this mediocre album.
Lamp Lit Prose
One of those albums you put on a playlist, but find yourself skipping each song.
Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino
Just could not get into it!
Welcome to the Neighbourhood
After hearing "Halo", I was hoping for some catchy grunge-punk. What I got was some sleepy boring brit cockrock.
