Portishead's self titled effort. I thought it was really subpar compared to the brilliance of Dummy.

What an aweful album; a concept album about drag queens? Their first wasn't so good either though.

I maintain the only reason these guys even had a record deal was because of Mofia ties.

Nah, it's not the worst.

To be honest I was just trying to think of disappointing second albums, and I found that one a serious let down after Dummy.

Suck my tits, i just listened to it there.

I'd rather listen to it than know your enemy by a longshot.

I'm currently listening to Richey Edwards solo album "Confessions Of A Transvestite" It's really good!

Antics is disappointing, if anything.

it doesnt grab me, like Bright Lights does.

Funny thing is that none of the Interpol albums grabbed me on first listen. I was slowly but surely captured by their music.

this is my truth?

I was never a big fan of it, there are a handful of songs on it i like (eg. my little empire, born a girl, im not working) but i dont like the side of the manics that made if you tolerate this and tsunami, yeuch!

I LOVE the holy bible, like gold against the soul, everything must go and enjoy lifeblood to a certain extent although it's pretty watered down manics.

I was never big on this is my truth or GT although I like a few songs off em, and I thought know your enemy was pretty fkn shite.

But as I always mention in manics conversations, I once hated them and this was mostly due to those radio singles; if you tolerate this, tsunami, australia, everything must go.. I think they are some of the weakest manics songs besides the stuff on GT and know your enemy.

I thought Antics was a good album. The first five songs are fantastic. Of course it all goes downhill from there but it's still solid.

I second that.
But, My vote goes for (and I posted this in the original thread) The Strokes - Room on Fire.

That's about as generous as I would ever be when referring to Antics. The songs just aren't as good as on TOTBL. Period.

Agreed. But, that doesn't make it a bad album, and certainly not the worst.

the title of the thread is "worst sophomore album ever." By stating it's the worst ever, you'd be saying it's a bad album.

no.

a sophomore record is judged compared to its predecessor. TOTBL is so superb, it would have taken a beast of a record to outdo it.

Its not the worst second album ever, i was agreeing with the first guy who posted it. I find it disappointing, like i've said numerous times in this thread already.

I stand by my original post. In order to be so disappointing that he'd call it the worst, it'd have to be bad. Because that's what was asked for, not the most disappointing.

why must you be so pedantic, man?

I took it as Zorgon was saying it was a bad album (for the word disappointed never appeared in his post).
If that's pedantic and trivial so be it.
