Top 10 Most Overrated Albums
This week we asked you guys to name the most overrated album in the rock realm. The question stirred up quite an argument and the biggest number of downvotes we've seen in a while, but somehow, we managed to round up the Top 10. Check out the final result below.

10. Muse - 'The Resistance'

Released in 2009, Muse's "The Resistance" sold almost half a million copies in the first week, bringing the band massive stardom. However, the praises from fans and critics might a bit unfounded, earning the record an opening spot on the list.

9. Red Hot Chili Peppers - 'Stadium Arcadium'

Clocking in at over two hours, RHCP's "Stadium Arcadium" has a tad too much filler in the eyes of UG to be considered the ultimate classic.

8. Coldplay - 'A Rush of Blood to the Head'

Coldplay's sophomore effort got listed among 500 Greatest Albums of All Time by Rolling Stone after selling 15 million copies around the globe with hit singles like "In My Place" or "God Put a Smile Upon Your Face." Should the sale figures be lower, or "A Rush of Blood to the Head" is really as good as they say?

7. Kanye West - 'Yeezus'

Taking a slight hip-hop detour here - Kanye's latest effort, Rick Rubin-produced "Yeezus" came with high expectations. It's getting massive praises, as well as a bashing or two on the side.

6. Slayer - 'Reign in Blood'

Commonly dubbed one of the greatest metal albums ever, Slayer's "Reign in Blood" is like a Bible to some fans. It features all-time classics like "Angel of Death" and "Raining Blood," but also some less-known tunes. Filler or gems?

5. Any Radiohead Album

Radiohead counts as one of the more popular bands on UG, but Thom Yorke and co. still found their spot on the list not with a specific record, but their entire discography.

4. Any KISS Album

Similarly to Radiohead, KISS are represented with their entire opus. Whether it's "Destroyer" or "Monster," the band's just getting too much attention with the gimmicky approach.

3. Avenged Sevenfold - 'Hail to the King'

As an album that got quite a lot of attention from the metal world in recent months, for better or worse, Avenged Sevenfold's "Hail to the King" seems to have fetched more bashings than praises from UG.

2. Nirvana - 'Nevermind'

Often dubbed an album that shaped a generation, Nirvana's "Nevermind" is still getting praises and attention from fans around the globe. But is it too much?

1. Any Oasis Album

Finally, Gallagher brothers take the crown as kings of overrated. And they do it in style, not with a single album, but each and every one of them.
