Albums Where First Song = Best Song

Usually I'd like to think the best tracks off an album fall towards the middle or have incredible closers, but sometimes albums have an intro track that's so good the rest of the record can't even come close, or the rest of the record fails to live up to the standards the first track sets. Here are some of my personal examples of such
