Many of these albums aren't a total waste, but they were major disappointments.
I'm not sure you can call Monster
-- an album that went quadruple-platinum in the United States and launched many of the band's most well-known songs -- a "major disappointment."
To contribute: Fleetwood Mac should have called it quits after Rumours
, The Pogues' Hell's Ditch
was pretty terrible, and I don't think anyone will understand what demonic force convinced Garth Brooks (himself a minion of Satan) that recording In the Life of Chris Gaines
was anything resembling a "good idea."
Fair enough. I guess I should have said it was a major disappointment on a personal level. It was billed as a return to the "Document" sound. It has a few really good tracks, but, to me, it was REM's worst album up to that point by far.
