I would have been disappointed, but I think I nodded off before I got to that point. I'm slowly coming around to Sky Blue Sky

Agreed. I bought Homogenic
after being blown away by the absolutely beautiful single-version of "All Is Full of Love." The album was an incoherent mess. Which I don't like most of the time.
Depeche Mode- Exciter
: The day it came out, I drove all over the city looking for a copy of this before finally finding an overpriced copy at Barnes & Noble. It definitely was not worth all the effort, especially after it was heralded as their "return to form" record, and some of their strongest work since Violator
. So yes, I was excited. And was I ever let down. At least Playing the Angel
is a pretty decent album.
Morrissey Ringleader of the Tormenters
, though maybe that's less a reflection on the album and more the impossibly high standards I hold for Moz. It's unfortunate but I'm willing to bet we'll never see another Viva Hate
Now that I think about it, many of my more disappointing album experiences have come from aging 80's brit-mopers' more recent albums: The Cure
, Echo and the Bunnymen's Evergreen
, New Order's Get Ready
, etc. And my disappointment grows for both Bono and Sting every time I see them on TV achieving new levels of douchey-ness.
