Maybe it's just me, but I don't like Shanghai Tower at all.. too tall, too winding, too flashy, it doesn't match well with the other buildings in the cluster. Shanghai is still in my Top 3, but lost some points because of it.

I personally like Shanghai tower, but I know what you mean because that is what I think about NYC and 432 Park Avenue, this tower just doesn't fit in imo. It is to tall and to skinny. Luckily there is hope for the future because of all the projects in New York, it will probably look better when there are towers with similar size arround.

The photo above is deceptive as this photos below shows. There's quite a bit hidden that only becomes evident from an aerial.
