My fave super flop is Holly Valance's second album "State Of Mind" its all kinds of fabulous.

I also have huge love for Bananarama's "Pop Life"

Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel is one of my favourite Mariah albums.

I Iove the title track of that album, I don't understand why she didn't launch with it.

JC Chasez, Schizophrenic. Easily a much better album than Justin's debut (though I do like Justin) but sadly didn't sell anywhere near the same amount.

Agreed. I really think Perez Hilton has a lot to answer for when it comes to Bionic flopping.

I love Madonna's last album, MDNA if that counts as a flop. It might have got to number one but only VERY briefly, and it dropped like a stone after that.

Alexandra Burke's Heartbreak On Hold and Ke$ha's Warrior

Both amazing and incredibly underrated albums

Gotta be Example - The Evolution of Man for me.

'Say Nothing' and 'We'll Be Coming Back' peaked high but dropped quickly and 'Close Enemies' and 'Perfect Replacement' bombed like the album A really fantastic album in my opinion, slick production and much improved vocals since the previous albums.

Major Lazer - Free The Universe looks doomed too

I have many.
Alexandra Burke - Heartbreak On Hold
Leona Lewis - Glassheart
Sugababes - Sweet 7
The Saturdays - On Your Radar
Ke$ha - Warrior
Christina Aguilera - Bionic and Lotus, for both those albums I think the good tracks were great but the bad tracks were awful.

I love this album, and the way the press bully Nicola so much in terms of her looks is disgusting.

Sam Sparro - Return To Paradise
Kesha - Warrior, a really great album, much better than her first.
Duffy - Endlessly.
Nelly Furtado - The Spirit Indestructable. Also a great album.

Leona Lewis- Glassheart--this album absolutely shouldn't have flopped!

Amy Studt's Paper Made Man is also very good. So much better than her first album.

Not entirely sure if they count as flops - but not as successful as they should have been:
Madonna - American Life
Hard Candy
MDNA
And, whilst it is by no means a great album, Melanie Brown's LA State Of Mind didn't deserve to do as badly as it did.

Leona Lewis - Glassheart.

My album of 2012. I think each song, bar one, is absolutely amazing. There was so many potential world wide hits on there, but they just got ignored.

I love all of Half Man Half Biscuit's thirteen albums and not one of them has bothered the charts.

Do I win?
