What are your suggestions for the worst album titles ever?

I think "Young, Foolish, Happy" is pretty bad from Pixie Lott.

But the worst of all time is "Shontelligence" by Shontelle. Oh dear Lord.

Any more?

Let's face it most of them are awful. They either show a lack of imagination, are self indulgent or just plain stupid.

Yeah 'Young, Foolish, Happy' is really drippy! I also don't like 'Ora' by Rita Ora, it's very predictable.

Unapolegetic. I dunno, it's easy to make a mistake spelling it and it just looks very ugly.

Also, album titles that just have nothing to do with the actual material on it. The Black Eyed Peas released The E.N.D (Energy Never Dies) which was cool, then they released The Beginning the next year.

Pretty much every album title is crap compared to Exile On Main Street.

Cheryl - Messy Little Raindrops
Coldplay - Mylo Xyloto
Madonna - Hard Candy. I'd have preferred what she was going with to begin with.
Nicki Minaj - Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded. Sounds like a re-release of Pink Friday. Also,
Nicki Minaj - Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded: The Re-Up.. What. The. Hell.

I used to think that but it's a way of saying "This is me"

Her next album is called Pink Friday: The Pink Print. She is taking after Jay-Z with The Blueprint one, two, and three; and Lil Wayne with all four of Tha Carter, and two of I Am Not A Human Being.

Tulisa - The Female Boss

The most predictable album title ever. And it looks a bit silly now that the album flopped.

I never knew that! I quite like AIEW as an album name, Masquerade sounds awful!! Very 90's and 'Jazz Hands'

Yea masquerade was changed as kelly said it was too similar to albums released around that time like funhouse from pink and circus from britney. I think masquerade was a much better title for the music and image of that album

As a massive fan of the Peas I have to agree with this, I thought the pun with the E.N.D was clever however it was ruined with The Beginning and sort of took the edge of the album titles.

Peter Gabriel's first 4 albums were just "Peter Gabriel".

Then he gave us "Plays Live".

Don't forget (sorry, please try to forget) 'Steptacular' by Steps, which I think was their 2nd album. At least it gave you an indication of what to expect if you listened to it I suppose. CHEESE!

Mind you for imagination I've just looked up the titles to S Club 7's albums: The first was 'S Club' and the second was '7.' YAY!

Cliff Richard had an album in 1993, some 35 years after his first chart entry, called 'The Album.' However, it was a #1 album in the UK.

Like Coldplay's Mylo Xyloto. Quite appropriate in their case.

The fourth Led Zeppelin album has either the best or the worst title ever.
