regrettablealbums20 The 20 Most Regrettable Albums Ever

We all make mistakes. That’s why Yikes put quirky erasers on pencils, right? Unless you’re talking about Jeff Mangum or Kate Bush — artists who opt in and out when necessary — pretty much any talented individual stumbles given a long enough timeline. Now, we don’t know any of these artists, and we didn’t prod them for answers, so the idea that any of these 20 albums are “regrettable” in their eyes is a total assumption on our part.

Having said that, we can’t help but wonder how they’d think otherwise.

The second thing to remember in making your gourmet meal is to buy only the finest of ingredients and to use exactly what the recipe calls for. Now, only the finest gourmet cheese such as Gruyere, Emmental and Comte along with wine and spices are blended to savory perfection.

Poilane’s bread has won him famous fans over the years: Frank Sinatra and Lauren Bacall used to enjoy a loaf from time to time, and Robert De Niro is a customer. All you need to do is look at the simple process of ordering things through call up or through the net. Gourmet foods are most likely one of the most talked about food items and least understood.

Each company is screened and their testimonials are reviewed before being allowed admittance to the event. If you really want to amuse your taste buds then you must surely try out the delightful and extraordinary food items that come under the gourmet category. If you go to a Peruvian restaurant you can ask them what options they have and the list in indefinite.

No qualms about your #1 or #2 choices whatsoever. But let’s be honest, a handful of Dylan albums could contend for his biggest regret ever, and I think “Under the Red Sky” and “Self-Portrait” were more horrifying mistakes than “Empire Burlesque.”

While I generally agree on the list, you’d think you’d have picked “Lulu” as Metallica’s (and Lou Reed’s, for that matter) rock bottom.

There are a lot of notable (tragicomedic) lyrics I could mention, but “I am the table” stuck in my head as it makes no sense in any context imaginable; their reasons behind publishing such a (both lyrically and musically) poor record is beyond me.

So tired of list-based “articles”. And we don’t care about what the worst albums are. People here are looking for good music, and we want to see articles about music that is worth listening to. Not some other’s opinion of some of the most regrettable albums. Lame post, CoS.

I disagree. Criticism is a valid (if, apparently, dying) aspect of rock culture, and talking about mistakes is part of learning about the history of the album.

Two things:

  1. How can anybody say Jeff Mangum “opts in and out as necessary”? He opted out and stayed out. He has never opted in.
  2. American Life is a good album. Not quite as good as Ray of Light or Music, but better than anything that came after it.

Wow. I’ve never 100% agreed with one of these lists before.

Although, honestly I’d add any weezer album that isn’t the Blue one…. lol

I thought Animals was their low point and Final Cut was excellent. Shows how opinions differ. :)

To be fair to Cut the Crap, “This is England” is a decent song.

The “young guns” did not play on Zeitgeist, nor were they even in the band yet. Why expect to read a well researched Pumpkins review on the net though?

I am the hugest Pumpkins fan. I think “Oceania” is right there with their best albums, but “Zeitgeist” is really bad, maybe their only bad album I wanted to like it so badly, but it’s just not good. A couple good songs, that’s all.

Machina II is the regretable one. This album is preety cool actually.

Agreed Zeitgeist is on of my all-time favourite albums losers.
