It’s Tori Amos vs. Mariah vs. Michael Jackson for Worst Album Title of 2014

Because Unrepentant Geraldines. Really?

Tori Amos released her 17th album this week, and a lot of people are saying that Unrepentant Geraldines might be her best work in two decades. But Unrepentant Geraldines? That’s the best they can do for a title?

tori-amos-unrepentant-geraldinesListen, I’m not saying that Unrepentant Geraldines is the worst album title of all time, because with all those Fiona Apple titles out there and with other contenders like Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness by Smashing Pumpkins, REO Speedwagon’s You Can Tune a Piano, But You Can’t Tuna Fish, Paul McCartney’s Kisses on the Bottom, and Will Smith’s Willennium, there is plenty of competition.

And that’s without even delving into the pantheon of terrible prog rock album titles or the wretchedness that is Coldplay. Or Limp Bizkit, whose terrible band name is only outranked in terribleness by the terrible title of the band’s 2000 album, Chocolate Starfish and the Hot Dog Flavored Water.




But Tori Amos' Unrepentant Geraldines might just be the worst album title of 2014, though Mariah Carey isn't far behind with her upcoming Me. I Am Mariah... The Elusive Chanteuse.

What do you think?

    So is a Geraldine some kind of aging Jezebel?

  • Maxcel

    I think it is a fantastic name and makes perfect sense for what the album is about!

  • Robbie Bobby

    No. It’s weird/quirky but not bad. It’s unusual, but it makes sense. “Me. I am Mariah…” Ugh… Please stop introducing yourself to us.

    could this be the worst article ever? i vote yes!
