View Full Version : What's the WORST albums of 2006 so far?

I'm not the CD hog like I used to be, so I don't hear every new song by every band that comes out. But one that I did buy, that I am completely ashamed to say I did buy, is Def Leppard's "Yeah". Understand, I am a child of the 80's, and when I think of Def Leppard, I think of the albums High n Dry and Pyromania. Good rockin' party albums.

"Yeah" is complete shit. COMPLETE shit. Complete SHIT. It's like they 1) are trying and failing to become some type of pop band, almost in a boy bandish way, or 2) they made an album just for the sake of making an album. Actually, it brngs to mind when Neil Young was stuck in a record contract, and his label demanded he make two rock n roll albums. He did, but they were 50's sounding, "golden age" albums. They bombed, he was released, and then went on to make platinum selling albums. If this scenario is true with Def Leppard, they might save a little face. Or, most likely, they have completely lost it, and need to go away.

This has been therapeutic.

So, what other albums would you rate as "worst" so far this year?

Most of the songs on Yeah fall pretty flat, as most of their material after Hysteria has done (with the exception of Retroactive), although there were a couple pretty good tunes, most notably their rendition of "Rock On." However, since the album is all covers, I don't really count it as an indicator of their progression or decline.

It just seems like they are trying to "de-rock" themselves, and reinvent the group as some pop band. At least that's what I came away from it thinking.

Is it worse than Slang? That was horrible. Ive actually enoyed Def Leppards last 2 albums "X" and "Euphoria". But, they are definately far far from their glory years of 20-25 years ago.

Hmm..i just read that "Yeah" is a collection of Cover songs....no original material. Interesting....

Yeah, that's why I said earlier that I don't really count it as an indicator of their progress or decline (though pretty much everything they've done since Hysteria indicated a decline, at least from a metal standpoint).

They actually released albums after "Hysteria"?

Hysteria itself was a horrible, horrible piece of crap...of course, stupid drunk girls everywhere loved "Pour Some Sugar on Me"

It had a couple good songs on it ("Gods of War," "Don't Shoot Shotgun," "Run Riot"), but for the most part, I agree, it was the real start of their decline.

I wasn't aware they had some peak to decline from.

Pyromania was their high point and it wasn't very high.

I saw them perform on some VH1 show about a month ago and the lead singer has totally lost it. They sucked HARD.

I can't think of one in particular, but there have been several disappointments. I was looking forward to the Shinedown CD until I heard some of it on the radio. It sounded like they weren't trying very hard.

Most anything on the radio right now is crap. The good song to crap song ratio is about 10:1.

Most dissapointing for me so far is KT Tunstall's "Eye to the Telescope". I bought it for "Black Horse and the Cherry Tree", but that's the only song on the album that doesn't make me think I'm listening to funeral music. Damn boring IMO.

Ouch. I'd put that among my best CD's of 2006....haha. Actually I bought a Canadian version of it last year, so maybe it's among the best of 2005 for me. I'd like to see what happens if she plays the piano a little more though... that's actually her more natural instrument.
