The Worst "Popular" Metal Albums


I realize the importance of these albums to the genres, and the influence they have had. however I do not find these albums really that great and pleasurable due to the competition and elimination through these decades of musical evolution. I respect these bands for releasing something so creative, conceptual and also brought us to the new dimension in the past.

My opinions are solely personal which are based on its musical value in modern era, not for its historical significance.

I received complaints from some members about rating their favorite albums at low scores. Unfortunately I am not able to do anything which is against my own will in order to please some of you.

I apologize in advance for my poor english which restricted me for answering some of your questions and requests. On the other hand I was not able to convey my message efficiently due to the reason above mentioned that had caused a lot of misunderstandings.

Definition :
Overrated : A term used to describe something that gets more hype and credit than it's actually worth.
Classic : (adjective) of the first or highest quality, class, or rank. (noun) Something noteworthy of its kind and worth "remembering".

****************************************************************************************************
1) All albums listed are considered OVERRATED in my personal point of view.
2) Opinions are solely personally, I hope interference from the website owners could be reduced to minimum.

Great. Now that God Buster completely understands the most important point of the posts I made, let's see how his list develops.
(I apologize in advance to Koarlabos for stealing his popcorn).

I completely understood your intention.
Unfortunately I am not able to do anything which is against my own will in order to please you.
Please go ahead making your own list, try duplicating all the albums on my list and rate those in high scores as you wish.
My english is not good therefore most of the time I was not able to give you the answers that "you wanted", on the other hand I was not able to convey my message efficiently that caused a lot of misunderstandings.

No contracdiction for asking people who are lazy to read the entire story to check carefully before repeating the old stuff.

Right ! I am not interested to answer your questions, I am not wasting my time. This list is only a list based on my personal opinions, there is no so called "answers" and "solutions". Your praised reviews on each album listed are welcomed to be posted here.


I'm not asking any questions though, nor did I ever criticize the fact that you hate these albums (well, except for "Tales..." by Amorphis, admittedly). Futhermore, if you actually bothered to read what I said, you'd know I don't care for most of these albums, so why the hell would I want to post "praised reviews"?

Written by Dr. Strawberry on 12.09.2014 at 10:16

Everything is clear now...
Why are you so desperate for having more people to view your list ? What are you earning from there ? You're really childish.


I simply posted a subtle link to my lists here, since Diverge referred to my lists. The point of lists for most people (including me) is discussing them with other people. If you don't like doing that then I don't see why you would create a list like this (a list that contains a lot of very popular and influential albums). I'm pretty sure you know full well how popular these albums are and why people are verbally attacking/criticizing you for it, yet you act like it's the strangest thing in the world that people do so, by constantly repeating that it's a list based on personal opinions, which is something everyone here already knows from the get-go I'd assume.

Quote:
You don't like my list mainly because what you rated high on your list were rated low on my list. More people agree with me will cause detriments to your...?


Nope, you're wrong. There are only a couple of albums on here that I actually really like, so my dislike for your list isn't because of that. To be honest, I don't particularly care for your list, since I haven't even listened to most albums. And as I said a million times already, I don't care about most of these bands at all.

Probably the other way round, I should stop responding to their comments.

I'm sorry, but I agree with the guy, there are many "classic" albums that are overrated. The problem is, as mz pointed out, if you choose more than three from the same band, you just look like you're in a crusade against said bands, and against all "classic" albums in general. Starting from that point, if you think like that, as I said in the first comment, you can just put them all in there, since they'll all be overrated for x or y reason.

This is the way I see it as well. Yes, there are some albums that are overrated, don't stand the test of time, etc.
But calling, for example, all of Black Sabbath's 70s albums or all of Death's albums overrated is going too far.
