Your least fav track of each album


Don't know if it has been done before here...

What's your least fav track of each album (besides bonus tracks) and how high do you rate it anyway?

SoDP: I'm so Glad 6/10
TBoT: We can work it out 5/10
DP3: Lalena 5/10
In Rock: Living Wreck 10/10
Fireball: No No No 10/10
MH: Never Before 9/10
WDWTWA: Mary Long 9/10
Burn: What's Going on Here 9/10
Stormbringer: Love don't mean a thing 10/10
CCTB: Dealer 10/10
PS: Mean Streak: 8/10
HoBL: Call of the Wild 5/10
S&M: Breakfast in Bed 7/10
TBRo: One Man's Meat 7/10
Purp: The Purpendicular Waltz 9/10
Abandon:She Was 6/10
Bananas:Haunted 5/10
RoTD: Girls Like That 5/10
NW: All the time in the world 6/10

Sometimes I just had to pick one...
And I guess even the "worst" tracks aren't that bad, but sometimes too many average tracks make the album less interesting...

Re: Your least fav track of each album


I leave out Mk I because for me it doesn't make sense to compare a young band trying to find a musical identity with the defined line-ups which followed.

Also I have to leave out In Rock and Fireball because there's no weak song for me. 10/10 for every single track.

Machine Head: Never Before. Below DP's standards. 6/10.
WDWTWA: Place In Line. A boring 08/15 blues thing. 3/10.
Burn: What's Going On Here. Mk III's Place In Line. 3/10.
Stormbringer: Surprisingly I cannot find a really weak track there. I pick Holy Man, but even this is still 7/10 for me.
CTTB: I always found Drifter boring. 3/10.
Perfect Strangers: Hungry Daze never did something to me. 4/10.
HOBL: Withoug any doubt it's Mitzi Dupree. One of the most horrible things in DP's history. I give 1/10 because of the good lyrics, otherwise it would be 0/10.
S&M: Of course it's Too Much Is Not Enough. 0/10. But as that's not a proper DP song, I nominate Love Conquers All. 2/10.
TBRO: Time To Kill. 1/10 or something like that. Haven't listened to it for ages.
_|_: Purpenducular Waltz and Soon Forgotten. 0/10 for both of them.
Abandon, Bananas, ROTD: I don't listen to these albums often enough to be able to pick out something. I could state my fave tracks of these, but that's not the topic of this thread.
NW: Simple choice, Hell To Pay. 3/10.

Another proof for your and my perception of DP being worlds apart.

Re: Your least fav track of each album


Here are mine, with note /100, where 75 is an average track, not bad, not one I'd skip, but not one I'd want to repeat. Those I really like are in 80+.

One More Rainy Day 49
Anthem 56
Lalena 68
Into The Fire 76
Anyone's Daughter 80
Never Before 78
Our Lady 68
Lay Down Stay Down 83
Love Don't Mean a Thing 72
Dealer/ I Need Love (tie) 74
Nobody's Home 73
Call Of The Wild 69
Love Conquers All 48
A Nasty Piece Of Work / One Man's Meat (tie) 65
A Touch Away 78
Whatsername 69
Razzle Dazzle 64
Girls Like That 76
Body Line/Après Vous (tie) 78

So the favourite Least favourite is from my favourite record (how strange !), followed by my third favourite Purple record...
