Sure, boring beats ugly. Fill up is necessary to support accent.

It's the forest of cheap accents which kills everything, including the buildings with potential among them.

3) an unusual and cool design. I would just have chosen a different color for the base
4) I don't like the very bottom, but otherwise, the design and color combination are quite impressive. Best part: the inner floors showing through the glass!
5) I don't really like the protruding upper floors with the "spikes", but rest is OK
6) a bit too bulky indeed, but the interesting colors make up for that
7) really modern and creative, although I think a single tower would look better
