|Top Ten Debut Albums|
Albums that set the pace for the entirety of their careers......or gave us a
ton of false hope.
I unabashedly love the Foo Fighters. Dave Grohl is an idol of mine (as a drummer
and having the balls to decline an offer to drum with Tom Petty, another idol of
mine, and start his own band), so maybe there's a hint of favoritism in squeezing
them in on a list like this, but give it a shot. It sounds more like Nirvana than the
|9||The Paul Butterfield Blues Band|
Paul Butterfield Blues Band
Most people have heard the other albums, so I'm gonna throw this one in because I
thoroughly enjoy this record front to back, particularly the fact that it starts off with
a driving-blues track called "Born In Chicago"(FYI my hometown)
Is This It
A perfect example of a debut album that set the bar too high for a band. While I
enjoy their subsequent albums, they've just not been able to match themselves.
Starting off a career with an album this good would sink any other bands future by
having to live up to the hype (looking at you Guns 'n Roses). Somehow though,
they've managed to outdo themselves on their follow-ups.
I've said it before, and I'll say it again. These guys coulda, shoulda been huge.
Are You Experienced
If you haven't listened to this album, you aren't
The Piper At The Gates Of Dawn
If you are going to listen to this expecting a precursor to The Wall, Dark Side of the
Moon, and Wish You Were Here, be prepared to be surprised. VERY surprised
Probably their most punk-sounding album, just because of the manic fury of some
of these tracks ("Radio Free Europe", "Laughing", "Moral Kiosk", "Sitting Still",
"West Of The Fields"), but the jangle-y guitar of Peter Buck makes it sound more
like Big Star and The Byrds on coke. Still, it's one of my favorite albums, and was
named the best album of 1983 by Rolling Stone over Thriller (Finally, they got
something right, not that Thriller sucks).
Heavy. Like a...well, you know.
Please Please Me
As much as hipster douchebags will try to deny it just for the sake of being hipster,
The Beatles are bar-none the greatest and most influential band of the 20th
century, and their damn-near perfect ("Boys" is the exception) debut is proof of
|3 is really awesome.|
|list rules, so much good stuff on here. king crimson, van halen, and pearl jam all have awesome debuts too, just off the top of my head|
|Black Sabbath, Kiss, Ozzy's Blizzard of Oz|
|Ummm Black sabbath easily had one of the best debut albums ever and so did king Crimson.|
|Please Please Me doesn't really belong on here. I'm a huge Beatles fan, but having that instead of The Velvet Underground and Nico or The Clash (or a ton of other debuts that are just better) is lame. |
|i think 10 could be questioned pretty easily since not everyone even thinks that's Dave's best record|
I agree with the addition of Black Sabbath though.
Are you experinced should have placed higher though!
