    Albums that were a major disappointment?

    I'm not a mega mainstream music fan, but when my government cheque for $60 came in(Not Welfare), I decided to take a swing by HMV and pick up three Albums. The three Albums I bought were Kanye West's 808s & Heartbreak, Sevendut's Chapter VII, and Killswitch Engage's As Daylight Dies Special Edition.

    I havent heard the Sevendust and Killswitch Engage albums in full yet, but I have heard the Kanye West album in full. and I have to say its a huge disappointment. It has the two smash hits, Hearless and Love Lockdown, but other than that the rest of the album is rather forgettable. Before these three albums I bought Ne-Yo's Year of the Gentleman and Chris Brown's Forever Special Edition. With both albums there were the two smash hits which broke mainstream music stations, and there were also at least three other tracks which have the potential to make it. With Kanye's album, I think his radio play is pretty much done after Heartless. Another song may make it, and might be out now, but around my area the only two tracks released from his album are Heartless and Love Lockdown.

    Anyhow so as the title suggests, has there ever been an album that you have bought that you were disappointed by?

    Saint Anger was, in fact, a huge letdown to Metallica fans, sadly, but I wouldn't call that the major disappointment of the decade. For me, that'd have to go to GnR for Chinese Democracy, because that one just blew chunks. Thankfully I bought it off itunes, so I got it (somewhat) cheap, but my god, that has to be the worst letdown I've seen for music "talent" in years.

    Then your expectations must have been pretty damn low.
    The thing was highly overproduced and sounds absolutely pathetic. I can't even make it through the thing in one sitting.

    Given that this "album" took much longer than the average to put together, you'd think they could actually put something good on it, rather than the trash that exists now.

    Mudvayne's newest CD was a let down. I liked three or so songs and found them very FTW but for the most part, it's nothing compared to Lost and Found.

    The thing I found with 808's is not that it's a bad album it's that Graduation was so fucken good.

    Like Graduation was fucken amazing it set the bar for Kanye's next album super high, and while 808's isn't bad it is no where near the level of Graduation which makes it a letdown.

    The Candyass album by Orgy was a huge let down. Jeez I thought they would have at least one decent song on the album other that Blue Monday.

    In my opinion, almost every Metallica album after load was a disappoinment to me. I mean yeah Garage Inc. and Reload had a few good songs but over all it was pretty meh.

    Graduation, Late Registration & College Dropout were all great Albums from Kanye. 808's & Heartbreaks was without a doubt Kanye's Weakest Album.

    And it's not a bad album it's just the others raised the bar so high.

    Yeah I Agree After hearing What everyone was saying about it I wasn't gonna even bother to download it. But then i changed my Mind & decided to download it but expecting the worse. Turned out to be better than i thought. but no where near the level of his other three albums.
