Biggest Improvements- Part One

Sort of an inversion of my previous 'Good bands/ artists that got horribly shite' lists- this list is of albums that were significantly better than the previous effort by their respective bands.
1Motorhead
Overkill


Motorhead's 1977 eponymous debut was certainly not a bad album by any means but was a bit sedate compared to the material they were better known for. 1979's Overkill brought the raw, heavy swagger and killer riffs to fruition and set a new standard in rock and metal.
2David Bowie
The Man Who Sold the World


Though Bowie scored his first hit with 'Space Oddity' off his second album in 1969, the album itself was a bit of a psych-folk duffter. His third album brought the hard rock and heavy metal elements that truly introduced the genius of Bowie to the world.
3Megadeth
United Abominations


Megadeth had stagnated pretty much in the late 90's. Though 2004's The System Has Failed was an earnest return to metal following their ill-advised foray into radio rock, it was only with 2007's United Abominations that they truly hit their stride again. Not a bad song on here at all, even the redux of A Tout le Monde is great.
4Metallica
Death Magnetic


Like it or hate it, there is no denying that Death Magnetic was infinitely better than the abomination that was St. Anger as well as the Loads.
5Aerosmith
Pump


'Dude Looks Like a Lady' off Permanent Vacation and the redux of 'Walk This Way' with Run DMC revitalised the legendary bad boys of Boston after their nosedive in the early 80's, but Pump is what solidified them as an important act for the decade to come.
6Foo Fighters
Wasting Light


Nothing they did since 'The Colour and the Shape' really lived up to that album and they got pretty bland and boring until Wasting Light reignited the energy that made the first two Foo albums so great.
7Deep Purple
Perfect Strangers


After a string of classic albums, the Mark II lineup fizzled out and the subsequent efforts with David Coverdale on vox led to some lacklustre output. Thankfully, the Mark II lineup reformed and put out this smoking platter and all was right in the universe again.
