    Posted: October 22 2021 at 10:34
Hey guys, I was wondering to know what album could be the lowest rated here. 

My ideas:
~Collectors/Fans Only~
*Genesis Calling All Stations 2.48 with 1064 ratings 
*Genesis Invisible Touch 2.49 with 1366 ratings 
*ELP Love Beach 2.10 with 722 ratings 
*ELP In The Hot Seat with 419 ratings 

~Poor, Only For Completionists~ 
Le Orme's Orme 1.48 with 55 ratings 
Banco Del Mutuo Soccorso ...E Via 1.26 with 58 ratings
Triumvirat's Russion Roulette 1.47 with 90 ratings 
Wakeman's Rock N' Roll Prophet 1.45 with 49 ratings.

I wonder if there are any in those sections with x>1000 ratings with 2 or 1 stars. Probably not since people would rather hear albums with good reviews. Critics would watch the terrible movies or albums so mainstreamers do not have to suffer from them.

we need a lowest rated top 100, all albums rated 1star-2 stars. 
I bet I even like a few of them. LOL

Yeah, I would love to see that. I would find it just as interesting as a top 100, and likely find a few albums I like.

This album looks like a laugh, maybe a cry. 
http://www.progarchives.com/album.asp?id=1810
It is Banco's E...Via. Never heard it, but it looks like this album is filled with hate and the imprisonment of creative minds into the grasp of commercialism.

Other albums might include: 

Camel: ICSYHFH(Although Ice is badass. Not that terrible, but still is) and The Single Factor(Not that bad, actually sort of like it)
Caravan: The Album
Genesis: Invisible Touch
ELP: Love Beach
PFM: Miss. Baker
Le Orme: Orme.

If they're the lowest-rated albums, then I've already found an album I Love, especially when I'm on the Beach. Wink

Sad to see Camel: ICSYHFH mentioned here, it's not a bad album at all IMO and it's not even low rated here on PA - 2.92.

The question isn't albums that we find weak but the lowest rated. That's a quite clear question and surely no album rated higher than 2.00 qualifies even remotely. The lowest one listed in the thread up to now apparently has 1.26. Stern Meissen - Taufrisch has 1.15 with 13 ratings, although we might say it must have 50 ratings at least (there are numerous albums with one rating rated 1.00 for sure).

Please from now on only post albums below 1.26 with more then 50 ratings, or lower than 1.15 if you're happy to go for fewer ratings! ExclamationAngryWink

So the lowest rated album listed on my thread is currently E...Via by Banco. Such ugly album art. 

Lets see if anybody can top. Or shall I say bottom that album.

I normally don't pay attention to the ratings. If I like an album, I'll buy it and listen to it, no matter how good or bad the ratings are.

It appears that when I look up the term, "poor, only for completionists", I get only a few albums. I guess E... Via is the worst reviewed. 

The highest rated album tells us that it gets up and down, but not on the board is does not. 

Lowest Rated: E...Via by "Banco"

Banco released an eponymous album, Darwin, Io Sono Nato Libero, and Come In Un'Ultima Cena. 

"Banco" released Urgentissimo, Buone Notizie, another eponymous album, ...EVIA!!!, Donna Plautila, and others. 

It is so sad how some people really get into a band, but then learn that they have heard all of the good stuff and the remaining stuff to hear is either meh or crap. 

Banco seems to be one of those bands where you should listen to the top albums and then just hear those whenever you feel like it. I mean, perhaps the one with the tomato and Canto i Primavera are listenable ones. Their newest album has a 3.84 score, but the leader is dead and does not show up.

Lmao. Doug Walker has a terrible sense of humor when it comes to parody. Kickassia is a great example of that.

This probably doesn't meet the minimum number of ratings for the OPs criteria. But I just ran across this today.

1.14 | 11 ratings Let Me Know You
1982
