AOTY’s Most Overrated Albums

I asked a couple cool ppl on this little site what’s an album they find to be completely unrightfully held in high regard… here are the results !! <3

King Crimson - In The Court of the Crimson King
1.
69
My pick:

For me, In The Court Of The Crimson King by King Crimson is one of the most overrated albums ever made. 21st Century Schizoid Man is a great song, I love it, but the rest of this just feels completely lifeless, boring and uninteresting. I just can’t get into it. I am a proud prog rock hater. Without 21st Century Schizoid Man, I’d probably give this like a 55 or even 40.
Radiohead - OK Computer
2.
85
@Doublez's pick:

"I think in a way Ok Computer is the most overrated album, 1st of AOTY, 1st of RYM... it's a classic and a great album without a doubt but it's almost disrespectful to the music's heritage"


@jcbal97’s pick:



@c4tb01’s pick:
Björk - Homogenic
3.
100
@jxshmccabe’s pick:

“i would say homogenic by björk. she has one of my favorite discographies ever. pretty much love every album of hers (even homogenic) but i still think it’s very overrated compared to her other projects.”
Lana Del Rey - Norman Fucking Rockwell!
4.
@Musicnerdd’s pick:

“My choice is norman fucking rockwell by lana del rey. Because it sounds boring and repetitive and has nothing new to present. And also because i hate lana del rey in general.”
Travis Scott - Rodeo
5.
@AndreManfre93’s pick:

“I would suggest "Rodeo" by Travis Scott... a pretty decent trap album but not a masterwork as many people say!”
My Bloody Valentine - Loveless
6.
82
@andiov1’s pick:

“I'd say my bloody valentine - loveless
there are just better shoegaze albums imo”
Nas - Illmatic
7.
@thamostonres's pick:

"illmatic by nas. i still think its a rlly good album, but i rlly dont think its even close to being the “best hip hop album of all time ooo”. in other words, whole lotta red >>>>>"
Kanye West - My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy
8.
100
@nathanaskenazi's pick:

"probably MBDTF. still a great album, just has too many boring and cringe moments to consider a masterpiece."


@oh’s pick:

“Kanye West - My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy.
sounds like celery in music form (do not ask any questions about this analogy)”


@reptilia0000's pick:

"MBDTF easily, I love Kanye, but that one's just on another level of overrated"
Beyoncé - Lemonade
9.
84
@marvelgaryen’s pick:



@aaron's pick:
Charli XCX - Pop 2
10.
87
@MattsReviews's pick:
Weezer - Weezer (Blue Album)
12.
66
@biglasagnayeet‘s pick:

“I think I'd have to say Weezer's Blue Album. I know a lot of people are gonna hate me for saying that one, but the band's whole quirky style doesn't really click with me. The instrumentals feel way more stale and dated than most make out them to be and, despite the occasional bop, the lyricism, whilst fairly distinct, doesn't compensate for that. I don't hate it, but, to me, it's a lot less special and distinct than many say, which is why I'd pick that.”
Playboi Carti - Die Lit
13.
83
@YessYessYessYes’s pick:

“I’d say, in my opinion, the most overrated album on this site is Die Lit by Playboi Carti.
Maybe someday it will click with me, but I despise that record with my heart and soul. I’m just not a fan of Carti’s vocals at all, and although the production is good, I find his performances unbearable for an entire hour.”
C418 - Minecraft - Volume Alpha
16.
@okcomputer12127's pick:
Playboi Carti - Whole Lotta Red
17.
@Cry’s pick:


@aleksandrrose's pick:
Weezer - Pinkerton
18.
@CrazyCrusher’s pick:

“Pinkerton, it’s forgettable and creepy and it seems like a huge step down from the Blue Album”
Swans - Cop
19.
@GeMann’s pick:
Lingua Ignota - Sinner Get Ready
20.
92
@Maqtheus's pick:

"Existem vários álbuns superestimados, principalmente aqueles que contém algumas experimentações e todos da comunidade passam a amar. Além desse tipo, tem os álbuns que o The Needle Drop aclama então todos passam a aclamar.
Exemplo: Sinner Get Ready - Lingua Ignota"



@nostalgia's pick:
Lorde - Melodrama
21.
91
@emomu's pick:

"Probably Lorde's Melodrama. It's not a bad album, and I kind of liked it, but people praise the album like it's some cutting-edge pop record when it's mainly a boilerplate electropop record."



@bl0nded's pick:
Kate Bush - Hounds of Love
22.
100
@clumsyduckling's pick:
The Smiths - The Queen is Dead
23.
@Nightwing734's pick:
ミドリ [Midori] - Hello Everyone. Nice to Meet you. We are Midori
24.
@EraX's pick:

"Despite me not having rated it, it's probably "Hello Everyone. Nice to Meet you. We are Midori" by Midori
I've attempted to listen to this album 3 times already but I just end up turning it off in the middle because of how uninterested I am in the sounds being presented. Which really sucks because I really want to enjoy the album. "ゆきこさん" is like the only song i like from it. :/"
Grimes - Visions
25.
95
@Windy's pick:

"There are a few, but I'd probably go with "Visions" by Grimes. There seem to be a few people on aoty that share my opinions on it, but I've seen a ton of praise for it, and to be honest, I've never understood it. There are a few songs off the album that I enjoy, but I find the majority of it to be horribly boring or uninteresting."
Twenty One Pilots - Trench
27.
@Fhhgvnjscvbbg's pick:
Deftones - White Pony
28.
@Tristan’s pick:
Kendrick Lamar - To Pimp a Butterfly
29.

Niceee

so many BRUH placements here XD
1mo
Genesis Owusu - Smiling With No Teeth. It’s an alright album but the melodies get really annoying after a while, I think people tend to give it a high score because of the themes in the lyrics more than anything else but that’s not enough really
1mo
Whoever suggested Illmatic and TPAB are INSANE
1mo
Dave - Psychodrama
1mo
Here's my pick: Twin fantasy by car seat headrest, you can just copy paste my review of it for my thoughts on it
1mo

don’t really know how SGR can be overrated ( barely been out a month ) but to each their own!
1mo
Piñata by Freddie Gibbs and Madlib!
1mo
I would like to add Power corruption and lies by new order to the list. Age of consent is an outstanding song, but nothing else on the album comes close to replicating any of the good qualities of the album's opener
1mo
great list but also the people who said any weezer album are now on my hitlist
1mo
great list!! thank you for including me <3
1mo
