Hmm... when exactly did Bono describe ATYCLB as "punk rock"? "Titanium soul", yes, but "punk rock"?

Anyways:

PJ Harvey - Dance Hall at Louse Point, an album she's done with John Parish.
I adore the rest of her work, but this one just didn't go well with me.

Electric Soft Parade - I've read gushing praise about their debut so I gave it a try. Inoffensive, but soooo average.

I don't see why
people over here feel the need to put down ATYCLB every 2.87 weeks (yes, I'm keeping stats on this)

so, actually, I would have been disappointed if it wasn't mentioned here (I love that album though)


I don't think there's an album I'm really disappointed about

Oh yeah, and

Oasis - Be Here Now. What a clunker; I like their latest one a lot though.

I have to disagree with you on Jeff Buckley here. Not just on the merits of the album (hey, everyone has his/her own taste), but more because it's the only album he made during his lifetime. So in that sense I wonder how it can be a disappointing album when he hasn't released any more albums? No, I'm not counting his posthumous (sp?) work as he never finished it.

As for me, I don't own any album I'm disappointed it (well... I do have Phil Collins' No Jacket Required, but that's just one of the worst albums ever and maybe apart from ...But Seriously he has never released an acceptable album).

C ya!

Marty

Neil Diamond's 'Songs for Drifters' was, I felt, a disappointment. At least compared to his past work.

Queens of the Stone Age - Songs For The Deaf - I bought this based on a couple good words put in on this forum and a couple others I visit. Not impressed at all. Not even satisfied really. It sounds generic.

REM - Reveal - I think Bono was being a bit too generous when he praised this album so much before it's release. A lot of the songs have potential but fall well short, and there are only 4 on there that I actually like.

I have drifted in and out on the subject of REM, and have now settled on the opinion that Reveal is the worst album they've ever released. Which is saying a lot cause REM are (yes, still present tense I believe) a really good band.

Monster suffered by following Automatic for the People, Out of Time and a whole lot more. It was a sort of fuck-off album but has some great moments even so.

ATYCLB, coming from a band like U2, is so bad that I cannot begin to describe it. So, that's disappointing, but then again most people were really happy with it, so it probably doesn't count.

And 'Invincible' was kinda disappointing too, seeing as how Michael Jackson is the King of Pop and put in seven years of constant work with up to 58 songwriters labouring around the clock at gunpoint etc.

hmmm.... for me the most disappointing album ever was Disney Classics Volume 1 - the whole last half is crap I don't even know!

Disney on Ice was a bit of a letdown for me... poor old Walt just hasn't been the same since they put him in the cryogenic vat.

Radiohead-Kid A and Amnesiac
Oasis-Everything after WTSMG
Suede-Everything after Dog Man Star, basically Suede WERE Bernard Butler.
Primal Scream-Screamadelica and Give Out But Don't Give Up were wonderful, everything after is white guys trying WAY to hard to be black.
