Heaven and Hell and Paranoid from Sabbath. Both are pretty boring albums saved by Neon Knights and by Paranoid/Fairies Wear Boots.

The two Sab albums I always slam are:

-"Born Again" because Ian Gillan is about as doom metal as Madonna

-that shitty 90s album that was produced by a rapper and they had to work with random drummers because that was the year when Cozy crashed his bike again like an absolute cow.

in the 'ambient' scene, william basinski disintegration loops. dude made up some (totally not fake and gay) story of finding the decaying tapes and listening to them on 9/11 as the towers burned or some shit. slapped the burning towers on the cover and pitchfork et al sniffed up his farts.

Politics aside, I just don't think this album (or any RATM album for that matter) is good. De La Rocha is awful and Morello and co. aren't good enough to carry him.

Anyway. Basically most of the top 40 albums on RYM.
My Bloody Valentine - Loveless stands out to me as particularly overrated. The whole point is that it's this "swirling transcendent wall of sound" yet it's got these cheap plastic sounding drum triggers that screams 1991 as loud as any of the worst pop music from that year. You'd think in the grueling 2 years of studio perfectionism it took to produce that album they could have come up with some drum tracks that don't sound like shit.
The drums on Loomer sound great

Even as a huge fan of all of RATM's work, the self-titled album is really a cut above the rest.
Everything after it seemed a little bit more forced in comparison, even if I still think the work is good.

I literally don't get how people can think of this as a masterpiece, it feels like a step down from his previous album with sluggish production and too much filler. The best part about it is the energy Eminem gives in his performances.

Honestly if it were trimmed down and condensed then maybe it might be better but as it stands it's bloated and boring.

I didn't really get Purple Rain. I think "When Doves Cry" was good, and the title track was one of those songs that sounded better when somebody else covered it. Maybe if I saw the movie, I'd get more out of it, but still.

Audioslave's first album really proved how dead weight de la Rocha was.

Countdown to Extinction from Megadeth was the beginning of the decline yet it seems to be the only album people play songs from, even though the album itself is bloated and front loaded.

Great production quality though, wish their early shit had production more fitting of their quality.

Countdown is mediocre at the best of times. I can't think of a bigger step down in all of thrash metal than from Rust in Peace (possibly the greatest thrash LP ever) to this commercial tripe. And the production is terrible; I mean from a professional standpoint it's great and sounds sonically even but there's no personality to it. It's the very definition of soulless. In my opinion it's an even bigger example of a sellout album than Metallica's S/T, at least that album's production emphasized the heaviness of the material. Also Sweating Bullets is a terrible song.

Production is an overrated metric anyway and the main reason I think music is so soulless nowadays.
Slight Megadeth tangent but those 2004 remixes are an affront to God and Dave Mustaine is surely going to hell for what he did to his early work, which are sometimes the only mixes available for normies to stream.
