As much as it pains me to say this:  Tori Amos's Strange Little Girls.

And not so much "failure" as "massive disappointment".  I thought she would do her usual Tori thing (like she did with her version Nirvana's Smells Like Teen Spirit).  But it was just woeful and I remember feeling very betrayed and let down at the end of the CD.

There was one saving grace though: Rattlesnakes.  It was the closest she came to her usual Tori Magic Touch.

Paid a huge signing bonus by Elektra, and with an enormous ad campaign, JOBRIATH's first album tanked badly, with a followup that went completely unnoticed.

Stone Roses - "Second Coming" was considered a massive disappointment by a lot of Stone Roses fans

there's even a joke about it in SHAUN OF THE DEAD when they're deciding which LP's to throw at the 2 zombies in then garden:

"Second Coming?..."

Eyehatgod's Dopesick



Sandwiched between two excellent albums (Take As Needed For Pain and Confederation Of Ruined Lives) this is EHG's weakest release. Heavy as f**k, but generally hookless compared to their other works

Sounds like I'd like it.  I'll have to remember Dopesick... I'm into music I can listen to hundreds of times and still find interesting. and tuneless music is reminiscent of ambient music which might turn out to be an eternal soundtrack.

Faith No More "Album of the Year."

I love this band. They tapped a nerve and found success with their first album "The Real Thing." They then followed up that up with the deliberately obtuse and experimental "Angel Dust." (Proof of concept that good music is good music, my mom really enjoys "Angel Dust.") They then followed up that album with "King For a Day, Fool For a Lifetime." It was ignored, but it's an amazing album.

Several years later, "Album of the Year" came out. It's almost lifeless. Like all of the band members lost interest in the project at the same time. There are songs I like here, but who cares? The band members certainly don't.

I agree I didn't like Album Of The Year much, but I know a couple of big FNM fans who think it is their best album, strangely enough. Angel Dust is great though, I don't think they could've topped that no matter what they did afterwards...

Metallica- St. Anger
I can take Load.  It actually has some okay tunes on it.  St. Anger on the other hand... Let's not have any solos and let's make it sound like we're recording in a basement and Lars is banging on garbage cans!  Yeah!  Awesome!  Wait a second.  BAAAAAARRRRRF! 

Motley Crue- Generation Swine
You are Motley Crue, not Nine Inch Nails.

Iron Maiden- Virtual XI
It's metal, but do I like it?  No, sorry.  You've had better sessions, Maiden.

Ill Nino- Confession
I'm not the biggest nu metal fan, but I liked the first Ill Nino album.  The second one turned down the roaring vocals, turned up the whining, and turned out irritating. 

In Flames- Reroute to Remain
I can forgive most of their latter efforts.  I liked Come Clarity, didn't totally hate Soundtrack to Your Escape (yeah, you read that right), and even liked their newest album and Clayman.  But RtR?  Oh man, it's a kick in the nuts.

Tool- Lateralus
The more these guys have tried to sound progressive, the less I've begun to like them.  It's sad, because I like prog rock and prog metal.  I'm just not a big fan of the same riffs for two minutes straight.

Kiss' albums from "Lick it up" to "Hot in the Shade" are what I call major failures. On each of these albums, only one or two songs were worth listening to. The rest was just putrid, half-assed, boring, uninspired, unmemorable, lame, cheesy, awful filler. I'm surprised that they managed to survive during the 80's with that crap.

Hey, AHD, I'm not sure wether you're into metal or not, but EHG are a great band that're considered to the the godfathers of what we metalheads like to call "sludge metal" - picture Black Sabbath on a mixture of whiskey, heroin, and exhaust fumes and you're almost there. BTW, I also LOVE ambient (ie: Rapoon, Lull, etc...) as well.

A Perfect Circle's "eMotive."

I really like A Perfect Circle. I thought there first two albums were great.

Then the released "eMotive." This was an album to protest the Iraq war, released in 2004 when it was in full swing with patriotic support. What they did was cover a bunch of anti-war songs from the '60s in their own style. The results were terrible, a complete throwaway album.

Here's their cover of the much loved John Lennon song "Imagine." (Not loved by me, I think that song is insipid.)

Small | Large


Don't get me wrong, I'm not against musicians throwing their politics into their music. I'm actually much in favor of it. Not germane, but I was as against the Iraq war at that time. This album was terrible, though. As a protest it was stupid, and as music it was eminently forgettable.
