Have you ever had a album or cd you thought was absolutely fantastic.....and then when that artist's next album/cd comes out, you are super psyched and absolutely can't wait to listen to it. So you run out and get it as soon as it comes out....and to your shock and dissappointment, it is absolute crap and you hate it.


Here are my "Top 5" of Very Good to Very Bad:


5. Scorpions - "Love At First Sting" >>>> "Savage Amusement"

4. Ozzy - "Ultimate Sin" >>>> "No Rest For The Wicked"

3. Motley Crue - "Shout At The Devil" >>>> "Theater Of Pain"

2. Ratt - "Invasion Of Your Privacy" >>>> "Dancing Undercover"

1. Def Leppard - "Pyromania" >>>> "Hysteria"

What was wrong with THEATRE OF PAIN? As shitty 80's hair band albums go, it wasn't that bad.

Not sure if this counts, but I recently picked up Queensryche's OPERATION MINDCRIME II, and as cd sequels go... it wasn't really 'bad', but it doeasnt hold a candle to the first one.

I thought Bush's "Sixteen Stone" was an excellent album, and very promising. I ran out and bought "Razorblade Suitcase" the day it came out. Two good tracks, and the rest was AWFUL. Killed them in my eyes. Subsequent releases didn't really help either.

Just looking at the artists alone, you were playing with fire there. Ozzy had multiple good albums... but Ratt? Def Leppard? Ouch.

Theatre of Pain was awesome when I was a teenager. It hasn't held up well. Shout was a good album but I only had a tape dub if it off of my neighbors tape... so it was rarely in the tape deck.

My biggest letdown - Men Without Hats, Pop Goes the World.

Hopefully it isn't replaced by Newcleus - AD2005.

But Pop Goes the World is such a good single. For me, it was Elastica's followup, The Menace. It got really good critical reviews, but after a six year gap between albums, it didn't light my world on fire. They have some much better b-sides and eps.

I am going with Creed on this one. I marked out every time I heard any song from the “My Own Prison”. Nice hard riffs and great vocals. Then came “Human Clay”……It may have had a song or two I liked but I was still dissatisfied with the purchase. Then there was the follow up to follow up album “Weathered”, Hated it.

And then…Alter Bridge –don’t care

And then….. Scott Stapp Solo…..Care even less than Alter Bridge

Creed went from the potential of being top notch successful band to riding the downward spiral of self righteous egos. I still listen to “My Own Prison” on occasion. However when I do I feel a bit embarrassed that I ever marked out for them!

Urge Overkill- Enter The Dragon.

In a year that had a virtual murderers' row of some of my favorite bands at the time, my favorite album in 1993 was Urge Overkill's Saturation. And so I was so hyped for the follow-up and it was not good. I was staggered as to how not good it was.

Motley Crue was not a hair band. Motley Crue was METAL, they just had big hair. Hair bands wanted to be pretty, Motley Crue didn't. As a major Crue fan, I'll admit that they softened somewhat with "Theatre", but "Girls, Girls, Girls" and "Dr. Feelgood" were decent metal albums. Winger was a hairband and Motley Crue does not equal Winger. (No offense Cerebus.)

I have to agree with the letdown with Hysteria. The saddest thing is I think I owned every tape/CD mentioned by Tripod.

However, I'd say my biggest letdown for a "next" album was probably Cinderella's "Long Cold Winter". Not that their debut album was awesome, but the follow-up just didn't cut it.

Yes, I did just admit that I liked Cinderella. I'll beat my head on my desk now.

Kid Rock's "Devil Without A Cause" was an amazing piece of work. I received at an age that no child should be hearing his foul mouth (I think I was 12) but the album was soooo tightly put together. It was eclectic and perfectly over the top.

Then the follow up, "Cocky"(I'm not counting "History of Rock" since most of it was just reworked old material) didn't match up at all. It wasn't just energetic, involving, or anything.

I've got three, all of which I like much better NOW, but completely hated at the time.

- Stone Temple Pilot's self-titled follow-up to "Core"
- Pearl Jam's "Vitalogy" on the heels of "Ten" and "Vs."
- "Use Your Illusion I & II" by Guns N Roses

All three of those sat unlistened to for quite some time.

Also, *I* liked "Long Cold Winter". And while we're owning up to liking bands that lots dislike, let me say that "311" is an AWESOME CD, while "Transistor" was LAME.

The fact that "Appetite for Destruction" holds up surprisingly well just shows you how far G&R fell in three albums.

AllMusic has both UYI albums rated 4.5 out of 5, which is just perplexing....

That album was called Purple (stonetemplepilots.com).

As for Pearl Jam, the problem with Vitalogy is that for every Corduroy or Immortality there's a Bugs or Hey Foxymophandlemama, That's Me, which I refuse to acknowledge as a real Pearl Jam song. My friend has a theory that Pearl Jam didn't care for their overgrown fan base after Vs., and were trying to cull the herd by putting that crap on there.

U2's The Joshua Tree is one of my favorite albums of all time, but it's sequels Rattle and Hum and Achtung Baby were horrid. Those two were so bad that I stopped listening to U2 for the better part of a decade.

You can also count me as one of the many REM fans who absolutely hated Green when it came out as the follow-up to Document. I've since mellowed on it, but I couldn't stand it at the time.

One other one that really disappointed me was Liberty, Duran Duran's follow-up to Big Thing and Notorious. I was a huge Duran Duran fan throughout the 80's and that album was just a huge let down from everything else they'd ever done. Despite the horridness of Thank You, Liberty still ranks as the worst thing ever released under the Duran Duran name.

Operation Mindcrime is probably my favorite cd of all time. Guitarist Chris DeGarmo leaving Queensryche and not being on Mindcrime II really killed that cd......just killed it.

I love Billy Bragg, but I found his England, Half English almost unlistenable when it first came out three or four years ago.

I didn't try again until earlier this year, and I still found it depressingly, disappointingly limp.

I blame his fatherhood. Stupid babies!

Whuuaaaaaaaa? Then again, I probably can't talk, seeing as I liked Zooropa and will fight to the death to defend my belief that Pop Didn't Suck.

I was a huge fan of the first Third Eye Blind album, but both subsequent releases REALLY paled in comparison.

First Lonestar CD was awesome, but after their debut album, they started to really get boring. After CRAZY NIGHTS was released, John Rich left, and the band dropped their country look, and went for a more radio-friendly sound with LONELY GRILL.

I haven't even bothered listening to anything new from them since John Rich left.

A bit surprised no one mentioned this yet, but what about Metallica putting out Load after the Black album?

Another one for me was Sebadoh. I loved Harmacy but thought The Sebadoh was blah.
