Biggest Disappointment of 2016

Who shit the bed in no specific order
1The Fall of Troy

Great riffs and songs completely handcuffed by awful, brutal production. The bottom end is almost completely absent from this thing, leaving it sounding thin and empty. The attempts to "remaster" it were also equally bad.

These guys are hitting a rut, this was really uninspired and very disappointing after offering some new ideas on III.
3Submotion Orchestra
Colour Theory

Really bland. I think they're relying too much on their deep, hypnotic sound too much to create interest and not doing enough to put forth any interesting ideas.
4Kanye West
The Life of Pablo

I think I just have to come to terms with the fact that there will never be another Dark Twisted Fantasy.
5Lady Gaga

Some good songs, but it's pretty obvious she's going through an identity crisis.
6Johnny Foreigner
Mono No Aware

Songs that go nowhere. A really frustrating listen.
Along the Shadow

It comes across as very unenthusiastic. Anthony is a great singer, but the production makes this whole thing sound very bland.
8Macklemore and Ryan Lewis
This Unruly Mess I've Made

Production and beats were very safe, and I guess Macklemore just forgot to rap about anything interesting.
9Hail the Sun
Culture Scars

Lost their aggressive edge, which was really the only thing keeping them from sounding completely generic.
10Dance Gavin Dance

Someone needs to sit me down and explain to me why this is anything better than the million other bands doing the same over-produced, uninteresting stuff.
