This is subjective obviously. But there are a few I can name that popular culture has insisted were works of art, or whatever, and I bought them. Then for a while I tried to convince myself that I thought they were good (because I just spend the $$ and didn't want to think I wasted it), but then finally resigned myself to the fact that they were a letdown. * Miles Davis "Bitches Brew" (sounded like the same weird song over and over) * Nirvana "Unplugged" (uninspired performance with an out-of-tune guitar) * The Beatles "Sergeant Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club" (weird for the purpose of being weird) The Nirvana album in particular is praised to this day for being a great performance, but to my ears it sounds like the frontman was on.... well, duh I suppose. The honorable mention is the Alice In Chains "Unplugged" album, which is also widely praised by fans, but suffers from the same performance shortcomings as the Nirvana album. Likely for the same reason.
