Not in terms of popularity per se, but more a thread for critical mauling.
In light of p4k absolutely eviscerating POP ETC with a 2.5 (The Morning Benders, iirc, got a BNM in 2010), what other examples are there of a band getting absolutely savaged with a follow-up to a well-received record? It has to be at the time, not in retrospect (see: Be Here Now getting 9/10 by NME on release etc)
I guess /\/\/\Y/\ was pretty awful next to Kala and was correctly called out for it.
