Anything with "Dubstep", "Chill House" or "Eminem" in the title.

I have not been feeling the love for James Blake.
Kind of find it annoying, with the constant stop/go keys, vocals and drums (like a driver who wants to annoy you by hitting the pedal for a second, then the brakes, then the pedal, etc)
Sometimes it sounds like a baby is mashing fx buttons.
It's supposed to be soul(?) but that's not coming through for me.

It's like D'Angelo playing with Milli singing and hearing it on bad acid.

I'm afraid to say it but Coldplay has officially died for me. I thought Viva La Vida was bad enough, but their new album has a reached a new low. Everything from the actual songs to lyrics and sound production, the album stinks.

They probably wrote the whole thing while riding in a limo.

It's all Gwenyth Paltrow's fault.

Awwwwwkward.

Paradise is the only Coldplay song I can say I like to date. I mean genuinely like, not bobbing my head as a reflex recognition because a song is played on the radio 54 times a day.

I guess it all depends on general taste. A lot of the hardcore Linkin Park fans hated the last album because it didn’t follow their formula of rap-whine-yell-repeat, but I think the album is amazing and shows a lot of growth, maturity, and range.

Shrug.

just look at rolling stone or spin magazine's "Best of 2011" and you will have your list..

coldplay took a shit after Parachutes imo

While these weren't necessarily horrible, I'd have to say Shangri-La by YACHT was a huge disappointment and I thought the new Justice was underwhelming.

C'mon people. You're better than this!

Agree with the very disappointing Justice album. But who knows, live album might be better... or not... who cares fuck you.

Holy shit. A board full of so called "music experts" and we are talking about fucking coldplay and LINKIN FUCKING PARK? I am embarrassed for you all. No wonder anyone around here ever gets any hits, our collective taste in music has the maturity of a teenage fucking girl.
