We have all done it. Sometimes we see some cool album cover or hear about a band and think "Gee whizz this will be awesome!" so you pop in the cd on your player (or your LP onto a record player.) and....its awful! so heres what im asking put together a list of bad albums that you have boughten that you thought were going to be great. i will start.

Ina-gada-vida Iron Butterfly-Listen i like the song inagadavida! its a cool little jam! so when i bought this album i thought that the songs were going to be just as good. boy was i wrong. All the other songs were awful with generic lyrics generic arrangements and cheesy 60s psychedelia abound.

The who live at royal albert hall 2000. I remember buying this album because it had a monster bass solo from the ox on it. (AKA john entwistle.) This was before i became aware that after keith moon the who sucked ass. So i bought it thinking it would be great. Seriously the most boring live album i ever got. boring performances. but i mean thats what the who have been all about ever since keith has died. Just going through the motions.

Lynrd skynrd.- I bought pronounced and nuthin fancy thinking they would be awesome. What i found is that skynrd has two or three melodies that they constantly use over and over again.

so basicly thats my list of all the albums that i would consider bad that i bought. How about you guys?

Before the internet, I used to do it a lot! Because I would go to used CD stores and get CDs I had never heard before. Too many losers to name.

As a freshman in college I joined some sort of Arista mail-order record club and ended up with many different bad albums. One I would have totally forgotten, but for a Dead link, was:

The band was "Silver" and the keyboardist was Brentski (peeking out from behind the mustachioed dude at bottom right). The LP was dreck.

Some ECM albums .... Jan Garbarek (the norwegian sax player) has some excellent albums, but some of them really [CENSORED] .......

Keith and Donna. That album blows.
Procol Harum. boring drippy psychedelia.
Quicksilver - this was the version of QMS without Cippolina, after Dino Valenti came in with his wussified songs. I did not know any better as I was just getting into them. Should have done a little more research.
Soundgarden - UltraMega. Man, this music sucks. Sold it immediately.

Oh yeah, I know that album. Other than "Green is the Colour" and "Cymbaline," it is pretty lackluster. However, that little section where these two songs come together is pretty funny. Green is the color of our kind into it's high time, Cymbaline." Gee, I wonder what they were up to!

I still have this one. It's pretty lame, at least by Soundgarden standards. Basically just a novelty. They did play "Flower" at the reunion show in April though. The cover of "Smokestack Lightning" kind of sounds to me like they are trying to figure out how their sound works. It sounds like Soundgarden, but it's not a good choice for them.

ultramega has very muddy production overall. Its an okay album not great by any means in my opinion anways. The only like sweet song i really love on that album is beyond the wheel. Other than that i dont really think its great. my Friends dad has a place that he calls his [CENSORED] box. Thats where he puts all his bad albums in there. I saw a john paul jones solo album! haha.

I've had the same problem with ECM, some records I love, but also some complete garbage.

Yes ... then they make such a nice looking covers, the minimalistic approach to merchendize .... well at least now they give you the option to listen to some of the music on line!

But ... there is a lot of sterile music there ..... Rolling Eyes

Cypress Hill IV.

I was pretty disappointed when I bought this one because I thought Black Sunday was a masterpiece and the other 2 albums preceding IV were quality.

The "ECM sound" has always seemed so bland. But, seeing the website (which is a mess to navigate), I will give them credit for having nearly if not all the back catalog still in print, at least for download (lossless, even). I wish more jazz labels were that easily available (BYG/Actuel and Strata East come to mind).

Haven't seen the site in a long time ... I generally prefer the raw "dirty" genuine sounds .... but I will check up ...
