Can't compile a list but I'll contribute 'Some Cities'. I'm sorry, there are some really great songs on it ('Almost Forgot Myself' is brilliant and 'Snowden' is awesome) but most of it just flies by, really.

I just can think in "X&Y", I used to like Coldplay a lot, I still enjoy Parachutes and AROTH, but this one...

Not sure I have 10 disappointments, but here's a few.

Juliana Hatfield.........Made in China
The Go! Team..........Thunder, Lightning Strike
Ben Lee............Awake is the New Sleep
Coldplay........X&Y (not so much a disappointment; I expected bland and I got bland)
Mars Volta.........Frances the Mute (put down the pipe and start writing some songs that clock in under 10 minutes)

Gotta agree with the reference to Some Cities. That one was so disappointing it hurt.

Kathleen Edwards... Back to You. Failer is one of my favorite albums of the last few years. This one's not bad, but it is lost momentum from Failer.

Switchfoot... Nothing Is Sound. I thought Beautiful Letdown was a solid album for what it was: about five shimmering three and a half minute sugar gems, with a handful of U2 style emotional anthems. This last album is just weak.

Son Volt... Okemah and the Melody of Riot. Again, a decent album, but not in the same class with the others - Son Volt releases or Sebastopol. Jay's last two, this one and Terroir Blues, have been discouraging.

Broken Social Scene. I may change my mind on this one over time, but I'd rather hear the same songs from bootlegs, which got my hopes up in the first place. I'm just not into the treatment that these songs got in the studio.

Choas and Creation in the Backyard.

Good but not lasting.

billy corgan - the future embrace

one of the biggest flops in recent music memory, other than zwan, so much so hes looking to re-recruit all the former members of the smashing pumpkins

depeche mode - playing the angel - just average i guess... but i dont really care because theyre only making music for the hell of making music these days

madonna - confessions on the dancefloor

Billy Corgan's album wasn't disappointing for me since I never thought for a second that it wouldn't suck. Weezer's latest was a kick in the nuts, though.

Chaos and Whatever is awesome. "Fine Line," "Jenny Wren," "Friends To Go," "Too Much Rain," "Riding To Vanity Fair"; it's the soundtrack to a rainy day.
