It's really not too common. I think the best example I have in my collection is a famous one: Out of Time by REM. Half a World Away, Texarkana and Country Feedback shit all over stuff like Belong, Radio Song and Low.

<font color=#007AAA face="courier new">If you just forget about the two remixes and the last track on the Score, I think the best part of the album starts with "Killing Me Softly..."

And the first half of the Office Space soundtrack is completely worthless until you get to "Down for Whateva".</font>

Low is one of my least favorite R.E.M. songs. It goes nowhere. Immaculate production, sure, but if it were on, say, Murmur, it'd be incredibly boring.

Oh, another example: Nevermind. Drain You and On a Plain are arguably the best songs on the album.
