Albums you've bought but wish you hadn't

This usually happens to me when I buy albums on a wim. Sometimes, however, I luck out and get something I really like.

The last album I bought and wish I hadn't was the Scissor Sisters. I had heard Take Your Mother Out. It was kind of catchy - I love glam rock. I bought the album only to find what I would describe as a Bee Gees tribute band. I can totally see these people doing some sort of 70's broadway musical. I'm sure there are more disks like this in my collection. How about you guys?

I buy a lot of albums I end up really disliking. Most recently, Finger Eleven.

All That You Can't Leave Behind.

Also um, several albums by Ben Harper.

And Faith No More's 'album of the year' (this was many moons ago).

Truth is I pawned my CD collection for money a few years ago, and in hindsight there were only about ten albums I felt the need to re-acquire. It pays to have discretion.

Oasis - Be Here Now (first album I ever sold at the second-hand CD shop)

Daft Punk - Homework (2 good songs amidst filler)

"Three Musketeers" soundtrack - only because at the time I liked that Sting, Rod Stewart & Brian Adams song.

Usually I'm very careful about what I buy though, and most of my "gut feeling" purchases have been successful too.

And there were times when I'd listen to an album a year or two after I bought and hated it and voila, I've changed my mind about it.

there's a band who did a song called neighbourhood freaks. i bought their album because i thought i liked another of their songs.
i didn't and it was a shameful lost opportunity to buy something worthwhile.
i cant remember the name of the group now. they're woeful.
