OK. Rank it like this:

Masterpiece - No bad tracks, personal significance, can be played extensively and not lose its charm. Rare.
Great - No bad tracks, universally acclaimed, personal significance, can be played four or five times without slowing down.
Good - One or two average-bad tracks, well-liked, personal significance, can be played one or two times with enjoyment.
Average - Mediocre release that appeals rarely (either in comparison to other albums in discography or in general - your call). Can be played once and lead to mild enrichment.
Bad - Bad release not worth the first listen.
Terribad - To be actively shunned. Rare.

    It's pretty much their worst album. It keeps the sound of the first, except that it doesn't feel like an album experience to me like B.R.M.C. did, it just feels like a collection of songs. Plus it's really inconsistent, while all their other albums have no stinkers whatsoever. I mean, Stop, In Like the Rose, and U.S. Government are all in my top BRMC tracks, but then you have just plain embarrassing songs like We're All In Love.

    Anyway, I just realized that I forgot about The Effects of 333 when I ranked BRMC's discography. That pile of crap belongs on a very, very distant last place.

    SG really doesn't have any bad releases of any kind other than DOtU, which can be deceiving because the awesome of the singles from the album contrasts so strongly with the fail of the other songs.

    5) The Rise And Fall of Ziggy Stardust And The Spiders From Mars

    I used to rank them equally, but when I really think about it Alligator is the clear winner. The album blows my mind every single time I listen to it. Every song is just so goddamn awesome, in particular "Lit Up," "Friend Of Mine," "Abel," and "Mr. November."

    Funnily enough, my all-time favorite National song is on Sad Songs For Dirty Lovers. So. Damn. Good.
