I've always maintained that if Coldplay switched singers with Keane, I would like the former so much more.

That, and I have a soft spot for Is It Any Wonder. So yeah, they're bland, but just above the hurdle of mediocrity IMO.

Violator is such an awesome album that you should fan out chronologically and reverse chronologically from there. Get Music for the Masses and Songs of Faith and Devotion next

Thanks. That confirms much of what I've read.

Dave Matthews Band has the unfortunate distinction of getting progressively weaker with each album. As much as I love "Under the Table & Dreaming," "Stand Up" is about as mediocre an album as I have heard. "Emotional Rescue" by the Rolling Stones is another worthy nominee for the Most Average award. R.E.M.'s "Around the Sun" is another...and I am sure that there are plenty more.

I'm curious what leads you to believe in this statements, seeing as how they haven't put out anything good in many years.



Robby peaked in 1989, had a couple decent albums in the 90's and that was it. He's done as far as I'm concerned. Not quite to Billy Corgan "Smashing Pumpkins" lows, but I sure don't see The Cure improving anytime soon.

Bloodflowers was fantastic and the self-titled album was quite solid as well.

They only released 2 albums in the '90's, so saying they "only released a couple decent albums" then really isn't a bad thing in my opinion.

Bloodflowers was very good, but the last two were easily their worst. About Depeche Mode, Music For the Masses and Songs of Faith and Devotion are definitely their best ones, along with Violator.

Another one that comes to mind as the most average is Around the Sun by R.E.M.

The Fray makes me want to hurt myself...

Coldplay's X&Y was pretty mediocre, but I think Viva La Vida is good (less falsetto, thank God), except it wasn't exactly the band's Achtung Baby like they kept promoting it.

God, the Red Hot Chili Peppers suck. I would consider Blood Sugar Sex Magik quite mediocre, and that's supposedly one of their very best albums. There are a handful of solid songs, but the rest is passable funk with a talentless jackass rapping over the top.

I would have included X&Y, but that album is far below mediocrity. It wishes it was mediocre.

I'll never listen to them again because there's just so many turds in their proverbial punch bowl, but I used to absolutely love Before These Crowded Streets and still contend it's a nice album.

Definitely. I think the next year was the one with the Trail of Dead tune. MVP was the last great baseball game.

I'm the same way for "Bedshaped," for one reason or another.
