50.Nevermore - This is a really solid band, but I must say that at times they sound a bit too much alike from a song to song basis, and some of their lyrics are dull.
49.Talib Kweli - A great rap artist who unlike others in my top, is a superb lyricist. My main beef with him would be that as he released more albums, his quality dropped a bit. I was not a huge fan of his previous effort.
48.浜渦正志 - Or Masashi Hamauzu for those who cannot read that. A good enough composer, though sometimes his work is dull and a bit monotonous.
47.Faith No More - As with others, the Mike Patton era was mostly great, though their big hits were some of their worst. Epic is really not that good, and is highly overrated. And for every good song they have, I can point out one that is bad.
46.Mos Def - Like Talib Kweli, Mos lives his rap life through his lyrics, when they are on point, he is one of the best in the game, His album The New Danger was pretty weak save for a couple songs, but he made up for it with his newest effort The Ecstatic.
45.Foo Fighters - This is a band whose Discopgraphy is littered with classic songs, average songs, and songs that should never be heard by anyone. This band is maddening to me, they can release classics like Everlong and then have an album that is almost purely garbage.
44.Rick Ross - This guy is almost a guilty pleasure for me, he is terrible with lyrics, cannot rhyme well, all he has really is great production work and a passable flow. That being said, he has some of the catchiest rap music out now.
43.崎元仁 - Hitoshi Sakimoto is one of my favorite VGM composers, and he has a unique style that no many can emulate, that being said, like many others in this field, he has some really terrible tracks as well.
42.UGK - I think the most negative thing is that they are no longer in existence, damn you Pimp C for dying! They were probably one of the best rap duos ever, and had a big amount of staying power, and still remained relatively unknown for years. An actual gripe would be, as with most southern rap, the lyrics aren't exactly mindblowing, but Bun B and Pimp C had a chemistry that worked great.
41.Kanye West - This one is easy. I like Kanye musically, but if his ego were any bigger he would be drowning is a pool full of smug.
40.Moonsorrow - Great metal band, known for their long epic songs, and that is the main complaint; I like long tracks, but this band has way too many. Not saying I am ADD, but I really only listen to them when I have the time to fully enjoy them.
39.DMX - As much as it may be his lifelong dream, man, you are not, nor ever will be a dog, its amusing at times, but this man has a growl or bark in practically every song. Or at least a dog reference.
38.Doves - Great band, but much like my older comments on this group, the singer is not very good, but he manages to make his lame singing just work with this band, I dunno how he does it.
37.King Crimson - Classic band that progressively got more dull and pretentious. I respect their early albums, but their more recent ones have been a yawn fest.
36.Eminem - As a whole, he is a genre-changing rapper. He has some classic works to his name, but for every Till' I Collapse is a Without Me.
35.Symphony X - Not a music aspect, but this may be one of the ugliest looking bands in existence. Besides that remark, they have a tendency to borrow their own previous riffs in other songs of theirs.
34.Metallica - ST. ANGER, how about some FRANTIC TIC TIC TIC TOC, And Lars Ulrich is a Douchehelmet.
33.Lil' Wayne - The man has a problem with rhyming the same words a lot, case in point in the Ludacris Track Last of a Dying Breed, he rhymed roses with roses, that's classic Wayne. And he seems to be going off the deep end recently, and is becoming wack as fuck. But his earlier stuff was brilliant.
32.梶浦由記 - Yuki Kajiura has the following thought process. "I like violins! I know, lets put them into every song I ever make! That's sure to be exciting."
31.Canaan - Very good but obscure band. They have a few songs that sound too much alike, and tend to have a few filler tracks per album that are nothing more than dull ambient tracks.
30.Darkthrone - Brilliant in their early and mid discography works, but then became tiresome and monotonous. Haven't put out a great album in years.
29.Pain of Salvation - Scarsick sucked, that the only flaw in their music to me.
28.Portishead - They have only put out 3 albums. But seriously, they are really great. I suppose Beth Gibbons has had some lackluster vocal performances in a couple of songs.
27.Staind - I wasn't even aware they were this high on my list. How embarrassing. I suppose they are good if you are in an angsty mood, and feel like listening to some post-grunge honestly I don't think they are as bad as everyone makes them out to be.
26.Linkin Park - Uhh, yeah the are somehow at 26. I blame it on me being an overly angst filled fuck when I am drunk, and that is where most of these plays are from, being drunk. I do honestly enjoy some songs, but I feel like I am 16 when I listen to them, oh woe is me.
25.Poets of the Fall - I really do love this group, I I had to pick a flaw, I would say that they have fallen off a bit with each album release. I wouldn't say they have put out a bad album yet, but they are releasing more tracks that are forgettable.
Expect #24-1 pretty soon.
