2008 was an absolutely loaded year for pop girl domination, with nearly every fave who was around at the time as well as others releasing something during this time.

It's kind of a big poll, but I'm genuinely curious to see who y'all think wins this.

Don't drag me for Kylie she released late enough for me to want to include her.

looking at the complete album experience , I would go with The Fame or 19, but ultimately Fame bc it was in a way groundbreaking and even the "boring" songs are staples

 

worse? I haven't listened to all on this list but I would say Sasha Fierce. The album cuts are horrible and the overall production has outdated very fast, exception of Diva, Video Phone, Ego, & Sweet Dreams

You mean her worst? 

I believe so, but Billie Prank wouldn't dare to call it that way. Though, in this day and age, I think Glitter simply takes the cake as Mariah's worst album. E=MC² is like a 2008 take on the Music Box sound, which sounds crazy, but it is to me personally anyway. Music Box had pretty ballads and Dreamlover, while Einstein had midtempo bops and Touch My Body. moo1

To answer the OP, I strangely voted for Kylie's X (read: ten) album and not Gaga's The Fame. Was it Kylie's magic (see what I did there? Ok.) that compelled me to do that? Idk for sure. Britney's Circus is also super cool, but it also sounds like an album that could have been reworked and optimized. What is Fearless doing here? Isn't it country? ari7

The worst album must be Sasha Fierce. Although, I actually have my own way to make it more listenable a.k.a. please remove Ave Maria from disc 1 and also remove the dreadful Diva and Video Phone from disc 2. Then, if you have them, please add Ego and Why Don't You Love Me to disc 2. Suddenly it's better, might be her best album too. moo1

The One, Wow, Sensitized, are very wonderful, even the unreleased ones are also worth to listen to.

X is in my top 5 Kylie Albums. Number one being KM94 followed by Aphrodite, Light Years,  Rhythm of  God, and then X.

 

The only not so great album was Kylie made was Golden and even that's quite listenable. Her first two albums are quite wholesome but still perks me up and when I'm not feeling particularly great.

X is so messy sonically but the tunes are so good separately... except for Ex-or-cyst And yes, the unreleased songs PLUS songs that are B-sides are just as good. Well, for me there's a few albums by her that I categorize as not so great or, even worse, bad. Kiss Me Once, Let's Get to It, Exorcise Yourself and her debut. moo1

Best: 

  1. The Fame
  2. I Am Sasha Fierce 
  3. GGGB Reloaded
  4. Circus
  5. X
  6. Discipline 
  7. Hard Candy 
  8. Funhouse 
  9. E=MC2
  10. Fearless*

*I'm no Taylor Swift fan but Fearless was pretty good. 

The Fame remains LEGENDARY and TIMELESS. Justice for X, Hard Candy and Discipline. I Am Sasha Fierce is better than what ppl give it credit for, applies to Hard Candy too (it was Ms last great album) . E=MC2 was good, some questionable songs but rest is good. 

Worst:

Definitely One Of The Boys and Breakout.  

 

But yessss 2008 was FIRE and an AWESOME year of female domination tho 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥

Best: The Fame, 19, Circus   One of the Boys would have to be my least fave, but it has some really good tracks, all the singles + Mannequin
