Most Overrated Albums of 2018

This list is about albums that in my personal opinion get a lot of undeserved attention, not saying this albums aren’t good but they definitely didn’t deserve the hype they get

1
Sweetener – Ariana Grande

Is impressive how much Ariana’s popularity increased this year, not even when she released Dangerous Woman (two years ago) seems that she get as big as she was in 2014, but man this album is just average at best, I liked a few singles over it but why everybody is making it looks like the next pop queen? – Pato_cargo

2
A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships – The 1975

I give this album some credit because is the most variated and unique album the 1975 has released yet, however people loved this album to death, even compared it to OK Computer, which is ridiculousOK Computer worked because it didn’t comment on social issues as directly as this album did, which is the main flaw this album has, it might be good, but not great, and not even at the same level OK Computer is – Pato_cargo

3
Invasion of Privacy – Cardi B

This is the only album on the list that I personally disliked, what is so special about this album? Is just your generic female trap album, I mean it has some interesting ideas like the Latin beat in “I Like It” but it’s ruined by Bad Bunny and J Balvin, and that’s the thing, most of the features here and extremelly mediocre, Cardi B is not even a pretty great rapper – Pato_cargo

4
Kamikaze – Eminem

This is one of the albums on the list that didn’t get so overrated by critics but more from the people that listen to it, I mean the album is okay, at least is better than the garbage of Revival, but in what planet is this album the best rap album of the year? Better than Tattoo? Better than Daytona? Better than Kids See Ghosts? That is just crap, is avarage at best, flows may be pretty good but that’s Eminem, is obvious to expect that from him, beats are just trying way too hard to mock all over the trap genre – Pato_cargo

5
Scorpion – Drake

Same as with Kamikaze, mixed opinion with critics but loved by the people, personally this album shows that Drake doesn’t have any ideas anymore, some of the songs are great but most of it is complete filler, he can just put 10 songs in this and the final result would be way better than this – Pato_cargo

6
Golden Hour – Kacey Musgraves

Good album, but just way too loved by everyone, I don’t complain about this album too much because I really liked it but is way too overloved by critics and people, that is impossible to not put it on the list – Pato_cargo

7
Dirty Computer – Janelle Monae

Same as with Golden Hours, good album but just way too overloved – Pato_cargo

8
beerbongs & bentleys – Post Malone

Same as with Scorpion and Kamikaze, no need to explain why, 2018 was basically the year of Post Malone – Pato_cargo

9
Die Lit – Playboy Carti

I mean, you can actually give some credit to Carti for being more experimental than the other artists in the trap scene, but then again is not as good as critics make it to look like, is just avarage at best – Pato_cargo

10
Be The Cowboy – Mitski

Same as Golden Hour and Dirty Computer, good album but way too overpraised – Pato_cargo
