    Garth Brooks’ run from “No Fences” to “Sevens” has to be considered. It’s a six-album run like we will probably never see again. (Some might add in his self-titled debut, but it’s attention mostly came after he broke with “No Fences.” Each album is fantastic, and three of the six earned diamond status. The singles that came out of that run hold up to this day.

    I would be tempted to throw “Double Live” (also diamond) in there as well.

    Wrong! Crappy Swift fails the Five Albums Test. Taylor Swift, Speak Now, and especially Red are rather bland and unimpressive.

    Cut the bullshit! You know as well as I do that if your precious Taylor Swift hadn’t been mentioned, this weak ass thread wouldn’t exist.

    Again, YOU made this about Taylor Swift, like YOU always do. You are right though had Taylor not been mentioned this post wouldn’t exist, because I wouldn’t of known about the Five Album Test. I didn’t make this list to praise Taylor. Seeing as I never commented anything.

    Also your opinion is different than a majority of people seeing as all of Taylor albums have been well received by critics and the public, especially when compared to her contemporaries.

    Just to put this thread back on track, a quick look through my library leads me to suggest Slipknot for the Five Album Test. Considering they’ve had more chart success than a band like theirs ever should get, all five sold pretty well with a couple of Grammy nods apiece and some decent to strong acclaim all around to boot.

    Slipknot are almost considered a joke in the Metal community…

    Well, that joke found more commercial and critical success than most of them ever will, hence the joke I’m sure. And The Gray Chapter just proved that they did it without ever selling out.

    Look Eric, I apologize if I offended a band that you clearly like. I wasn’t criticizing them, for the simple fact that I do not know them. The only album I listened (All Hope Is Gone) was far from being great though. That is just an opinion. On the other hand, I am not a fan of metal music (beside some exceptions) but I am aware of the “metal community” and I can tell you that Slipknot are not considered great musicians in their own field. I don’t mean to be hostile.

    Oh no, that’s the problem with typing. The emotion behind the words is left up for debate unless made glaringly obvious. I meant it in a joking manner like “Why wouldn’t they criticize them for finding mainstream success?”

    I don’t like Slipknot nearly as much as I used to and I only have a handful of songs from them that I listen to now. And considering their image, I don’t doubt they are considered a joke as a band, same with GWAR or Hollywood Undead (who are a joke). But the idea of them being one of the red-headed stepsons of metal seems a bit outrageous when they’re one of the acts from the genre who broke out into the mainstream. They should be hailed, not reviled.

    Yes, gawd! Missy Elliot is the queen of releasing great albums. Take notes, Taylor Swift!

    I was at a restaurant and a Maroon 5 video came up. I thought about them for this thread.

    Their album V was their, duh, fifth album. I suppose they belong here, they managed to get over that not so great moment with their third one which was still successful and got them relevant hits, the got re-released with Moves like Jagger before delivering more big hits with albums 4 and 5. They never really failed.

    And with this new album failing all over the place, I suppose at 5 is where they will stay.

    5 quality albums…not commercial success. So yeah no.

    Songs About Jane was the shit. That was the last album as a band rather than a vehicle for Adam Levine.

    To me, the Oak Ridge Boys were on a roll when my late beautiful precious Steve Sanders was a part of the act. It was him who did the leading for their last two #1 songs.

    Heart Beat (1987)
    Monongahelia (1988)
    American Dreams (1989)
    Unstoppable (1990)
    The Long Haul (1992)

    God bless you and his family always!!!

    Holly

    P.S. It was him who did the leading for their last song to make the top ten as well which in my opinion is one of their best songs named “Lucky Moon”.

    Go here to check out my most favorite singer James Otto!

    When they went from Maroon5 to Adam Lavine is when the quality when down.
