    You know what album doesn't hold up anymore...?

    Thread's about albums that were good when they came out but no longer hold up to scrutiny years later.

    I'll start:

    Dr. Feelgood (Motley Crue) - overproduced, underwritten, too many slow songs and ballads. I get tired of hearing Sunset Blvd bands sing about girls: we get it, you're getting a lot of chicks, big whoop. And it sounds so thin, even the titular track - the only one close to solid on the whole thing - wears out in a couple listens. And it's tragic because it really starts hard and strong, but between just sounding too polished and Vince Neil's sound being stereotypical for hair metal, it loses its luster too fast.
    Darth Vader is becoming the Mickey Mouse of Star Wars.

    stillakid, I mean this in the nicest possible way: You are NUTS!

    The tracks from Zeppelin IV may be overplayed, but the album is still one of the strongest albums as a whole from just about any perspective you look at it.

    Dr Feelgood: I honestly think, weird as it may seem, I've never heard the whole album. "Metal" or not, Motley Crue always struck me as a singles band, first and foremost.

    I'd add anything by Marilyn Manson or Eminem to the list. I'm so glad their fifteen minutes are up.

    I also don't think any of the pre-Badmotorfinger Soundgarden holds up especially well (the albums and EPs from when they were sort of a joke band, before they realized they were actually good and took themselves seriously). Louder Than Love is actually rather painful to listen to now.

    Bloodhound Gang: "Hefty Fine" (2005)

    I hadn't anticipated an album as much as this one ever. When I first got it and for the following six months or so, I loved every track on it. After a year or so, it was only about 3/4 of the album. Now, I can only make myself listen to a handful of songs from it. It's a sad state of affairs.
    It's a blacked-out blur but I'm pretty sure it ruled.

    And I was disappointed in that one from the start. There were only 2-3 decent tracks on there, IMO.

    Bloodhound Gang?

    You may as well say that Justin Guarini's or Clay Aiken's album doesn't hold up.

    You're sick in the head. "One Fierce Beer Coaster" and "Hooray for Boobies" are still in my "Top 10".

    For reals?! I never really liked that song.

    Me and RB decided that the problem with that record is that there is no thread of consistency at all in it. Each of there previous albums had a distinctive "feel" to them, but this seemd to just be a big commercial for Jimmy Pop's production company, a sort of, "Hey! Lookit what we can do!".

    Strangely enough, I also didn't like "Something Diabolical."

    The only 3 songs I still like are Foxtrot Uniform Charlie Kilo, Ralph Wiggum, and Pennsylvania. The rest are crap.
