Your favorite band/singers biggest mistake
 
I'll start out with this:

Don't know if these are mistakes, but...

The new one from Liz Phair
The new one from Belle & Sebastian
The newest one from Old 97s
The new one from OutKast

...were all pretty big disappointments for me. I'm sure there are plenty of others.

Never listened to Outkast before, and my wife and I love Hey Ya!


While not neccesarily my favorite bands, when Aerosmith and RHCP started doing the slow power ballads, I lost any respect I had for them.

dc Talk has been on "hiatus" as a group for nearly four years now.

Since then, each member has released 1 solo album (Tait's at two with his self titled band) which haven't sold too well. In the "interim", they've released as a group a greatest hits album, a re-release of "Free At Last" with a terrible remix, and two DVD's of older concert videos with no new content - when a 5.1 mix and other goodies were promised.

They still have one album left under their deal with Forefront, but it looks like it will never come out. We'll probably get a 10th Anniversary edition of Jesus Freak in two years before a new album.

Haven't heard the new Belle & Sebastian album, but the last two albums (<i>Fold Your Hands, Child...</i> and <i>Storytelling</i>) were pretty patchy, and I'd heard that this new one is more of a return to form...in short, the reviews I've heard were generally positive. Care to elaborate on your disappointment (as painful as that sounds)? :)

Sting...by letting P-shitty use Every Breath You Take and then showing up on stage to sing the chorus with that no talent suck bag.

Prince meeting Larry Graham.

[not that he doesn't have a ton of others...this was just the "biggest"]

I agree that Storytelling wasn't very good... though I liked some of the instrumentals quite a bit... and "I Don't Want to Play Football" is hilarious. But I really like Fold Your Hands, Child... I think that's as solid an album as they've put out, with a lot of variety and plenty of their trademark wit. Keep in mind that album came out when I was just getting into good music. I know that was pretty recently, but for me that was about 400 albums ago... I heard Fold Your Hands, Child and Kid A and Exile in Guyville and Dummy all around the same time... and it kind of changed my life. So I could talk about instrumentation and musicianship and all that but really it comes down to nostalgia... situations and relationships and cities and such. So any new Belle & Sebastian album was probably bound to disappoint me at this point... just like any new Liz Phair album would. But even then, I don't think Dear Catastrophe Waitress is that clever, or that catchy... and Isobel is gone. I wouldn't say it's a return to form, since it's nowhere near as dark or tight as If You're Feeling Sinister. But there are a few nice songs.

Metallica not hanging it up as soon as Cliff ate it.


Robert Smith not retiring to the English country side after Desintigration.


Kiss taking off the makeup.


Kiss putting the makeup back on and charging $75 a ticket.


Shannon Hoon's hot shot.

R.E.M. appearing on Boston Public. Ugghh....after years of preserving their dignity and not selling out whatever prompted them to appear on this crap show singing 'losing my religion' on an episode about.......R.E.M.'s 'Losing My Religion'.

IMHO, this is worse than even 'Shiny Happy People'.

Trey Anastasio (of Phish) and Stewart Copeland (of the Police) thinking that, for some reason, forming a band (Oysterhead) and recording an album (The Grand Pecking Order) with Les Claypool was even remotely a good idea.

This one is premature but I was telling my sister that I have a bad feeling about the evolving relationship between Gwen Paltrow and Chris from Coldplay. They already plan to both take a year off from work and with the baby and marriage, I just dont know whats gonna happen with CP. (I've got a baaaaad vibe from this

While they're not my favorite band, and this certainly was far from a willing "mistake," but Dream Theater released their CD "Metropolis 2000: Live Scenes from New York" on September 11th, 2001. As if that weren't bad enough timing on its own, this is what the cover looked like (Big Apple wrapped in barb wire, and Twin Towers aflame):

I love Rush through and through....but any album that gives us such greatness as "I think I'm going bald". Well, it wasn't pretty.

I was happy to find a copy of that in the a cd store a couple days after it's release. I don't think there are many copies with that cover available.
