This is the thread for those total bummer albums - just real bad, unfortunate records, that just happen to feature one instance of the artists best work. Immediately, David Bowie - Heroes comes to mind. Bowie has never been known for having well balanced albums, but I can't find even one song on this record besides Heroes that I can sit through. I cannot listen to this thing - but Heroes just such a brilliant piece that I can't imagine he was in the same head space doing the rest of the album. As a music listener who lives for a solid album - I hate this kind of thing. It's so depressing to have a song that means a lot to me exist in such a disappointing context. I know you guys have examples, let's hear em.
