    Almost everyone have bands they love and collect, yet not all the records are gems (yet sometimes you still buy it so there isn't a hole in your collection, or you think some drug will come along to make it sound better). Here are some of my favorite bands and their albums I DON"T like, and of course, it's just my opinion.

    Genesis: And Then There Were Three, We Can Dance, (most of) Invisible Touch

    Pink Floyd: Division Bell

    Blue Öyster Cult: Club Ninja, Mirrors

    Beach Boys: MIU, Light Album, Keepin the Summer Alive

    Frank Zappa & the Mother: Absolutely Free

    Lush: Lovelife

    Oh! You're trying to start some fights! :)

    My favorite bands' weakest (my opinion):

    R.E.M. - Reveal

    Yes - Open Your Eyes

    Rush - Counterparts

    Pearl Jam - Yield

    Cranberries - Wake Up and Small the Coffee

    Depeche Mode - Exciter

    Erasure - Cowboy

    Van Halen - III

    Other favorites don't have albums that I feel belong on this list. They may have weaker albums but they are still great. They are:

    Alice in Chains, Alanis Morrisette, Nine Inch Nails, Bjork, Tool, Beck, Pink Floyd

    The cool thing is that one person's garbage is another's treasure. For instance, I love Invisible Touch and Division Bell.

    Oh oh, take away my access. I'm not going to be able to stay away from this thread!

    Dark Side of the Moon is my favorite Floyd. Songs of Faith and Devotion is my favorite Depeche Mode. Seriously. Also love Wild!.

    I'm not trying to start fights.

    That said I love Darkside and Piper. Division Bell I really tried to like (I liked Momentary Lapse of Reason) but I felt Division Bell started heading into the Adult Contemporary area (as Genesis did with We Can Dance and Peter Gabriel did with Us...though I love the song Steam, particularly Gabriel's performance of it on SNL).

    I absolutely hate the song Invisible Touch. To me it is the worst Genesis song of all time, beating all the songs on And Then There Were Three, which is completely useless. Of course, I'm biased because my love of Genesis began with getting a used copy of The Lamb and Genesis Live in 1983 and then I proceeded to by everything that came before, then after.

    Frederik, you like Floyd but not Dark Side? How does that work? Are you a Syd Barett fan?

    Jeff, if you gotta pick an Iron Maiden album, seems to me the obvious choice is Virtual XI. I have it for completeness, but it's pretty weak. Brave New World is actually pretty solid, IMO.

    Larry, I gotta say the Absolutely Free is my favorite of the early Mothers stuff, tied with Uncle Meat, and much better than the much-lauded Freak Out!

    Genesis: everything after Steve Hackett left

    Yes: Everything after Going For The One

    Rush: Presto (it's still decent, but their worst)

    Metallica: Load/ReLoad

    Megadeth: Risk

    Pearljam: everything after Vs (I know, I'm in the minority here)

    King Crimson: None. They're all great.

    NP: Mahler's 2nd Symphony, SACD

    If one truly considers it a part of the band's true canon, the original 1968 release of Yellow Submarine.
