Default Albums That Disappointed

I know we have Albums You're Not Digging, but this is more about specific ones you were looking forward to that really failed to live up to your expectations. I am a big Steve Earle fan, so when his new one was released in 2011 I was excited. That excitement soon faded when I heard what appeared to be Earle moving away from his country/rock roots and more in a folky acoustic direction. He recovered on the next album, for me anyway, but this remains something of a disappointment for me.

Steve Earle - I'll Never Get Out of This World Alive (2011)

One of the better tracks (not that there are that many of them)

It's been decades since I would look forward to an upcoming new album release from a favorite band or artist but back when I used to eagerly await new releases, these four albums in particular were a memorable letdown for me...

Led Zeppelin - In Through the Out Door

The Who - Who Are You

The Rolling Stones - Emotional Rescue

The Clash - Cut the Crap

That must be because Presence was just so damn awesome.

In the grand scheme of Zep's discography though, ITTOD gets a bit of a raw deal, especially since it's their swan song album. I quite like it.
