I love discussions like this, but what a weird thread filled with mentions of bands that I don't think have any redeeming music whatsoever, like Mr. Mister, and albums that, for whatever degree I like them, I think are pretty comparable, like U2 and Motley Crue. (although, I guess Theater of Pain had some filler).

Achtung Baby is great, but take your choice between Zooropa or Pop being that horrible follow-up.

Also, The Black Album is Metallica's drop off point.

Looking around for some albums I feel like had massive drop-offs but I feel like most of my favorite artists had steady declines.

KISS had a fantastic album in SONIC BOOM, but followed it up with crap called MONSTER.

One-million times yes. I also missed this thread the first time and looking at the responses, I was confused how people thought Black Album->Load was a worse drop off than AJFA->Black Album. When the Black Album came out, people were pissed. It is now remembered fondly for Sandman and Unforgiven, but at the time it paled in comparison to the glory of Puppets and Justice.

If I'm going with "at the time" feelings of anger toward a follow-up that have completely changed over time, STP's "Purple", Pearl Jam's "Vitology", and Nirvana's "In Utero" are the three main culprits. I love and cherish all three albums now. But as a stupid teenager, I wanted more "Core", "Vs", and "Nevermind".

    Everyone loves Jay-Z now, but he went from the awesome Reasonable Doubt to doing In My Lifetime, Hard Knock Life, and The Life and Times of S. Carter which had a good song peppered here or there, but overall were garbage.

Agreed. Everyone bought his albums after "Reasonable Doubt" with hopes that he could match at least part of that greatness again. Unfortunately, he didn't have a solid album until "Blueprint".

For me it's No Doubt's "Return of Saturn." I loved "Tragic Kingdom," but ROS was a huge downer of an album. I don't like break-up albums. You can't dance to a break-up album.

Agree about Encore. That was a bad album made more so by the fact that it followed up the combined awesomeness of The Slim Shady LP, The Marshall Mathers LP, and The Eminem Show. It took Eminem years to recover, and you could argue that nothing until 2011's Recovery is really up to his previous standard.

Linkin Park's Minutes to Midnight and A Thousand Suns were strange and disappointing departures from what worked in their debut Hybrid Theory and Meteora.
