I was recently chatting with my brother-in-law about albums that did not age well. One that came to mind for both of us was The Love Below. Now, I enjoy Outkast plenty, and when that album came out, I adored it (along with Speakerboxxx). But upon listening again, it turned out what used to seem brilliant now seemed like, in my brother-in-law's words, "a novelty album with a couple of hits squeezed in for some reason." Yup.
What are other albums or songs that just haven't aged well? Is that a function of personal growth, society changing, musical tastes changing, etc? Is it any different than fashion or film or... anything else? I can think of movies that once seemed great too, that haven't aged well. Is music the exact same? Why are there so many lasting songs then?
So give us songs that didn't stand the test of time, and drop your list if you've got one.
See what I mean?
