Discogs that peak on song #1

(of first LP of sole credit blah blah discuss)
1Mastodon
Remission


"Crusher Destroyer"

(100%)
2MGMT
Oracular Spectacular


"Time to Pretend"

(probably)
3Sonny Rollins
Plus 4


"Valse Hot"

(further research needed but)
4Eddie Marcon
ゑでぃまぁこん (Eddie Marcon) (1)


"あみめ"

(highly doubt this take will shift)
5Nick Drake
Five Leaves Left


"Time Has Told Me"

(least fav of his albums, but gun-to-head if I could only keep one tune...)
6Yngwie Malmsteen
Rising Force


"Black Star"

(only good tune I've ever heard from him, quit while I was ahead)
7Ichiko Aoba
Kamisori Otome


"不和リン"

(not my favourite, but also one of the most perfect and comprehensive indications of how the rest of her discog would unfold)
8Boris
Absolutego


"Absolutego"

(would also respect this take)
9Sweet Trip
Halica: Bliss Out v.11


"Fish"

(increasingly convinced that this = #1 ST)
10Basic Channel
Phylyps Trak


"Phylyps Trak"

(GOAT banger, still my favourite of theirs)
11Jeff Buckley
Grace


"Mojo Pin"

(RIP)
12The Tallest Man on Earth
Shallow Grave


"I Won't Be Found"

(one of his rare good tunes)
13Phoebe Bridgers
Stranger in the Alps


"Smoke Signals"

(very much doubt this will ever change)
14Coheed and Cambria
The Second Stage Turbine Blade


"Time Consumer"

(or this)
15The Jesus and Mary Chain
Psychocandy


"Just Like Honey"

(not jammed beyond this album, but I have a hunch on this one)
16Lana Del Rey
Born to Die


"Born to Die"

(every year we stray further from God)
17Mazzy Star
She Hangs Brightly


"Halah"

(very small handful of challengers here)
18The Used
The Used


"Maybe Memories"

(65% certain)
19American Football
American Football


"Never Meant"

(if this is the wet flannel nostalgia act that it realistically is to the the vast majority of its audience -- at least three superior picks from LP3 otherwise)
20The Congos
Heart of the Congos


"Fisherman"

(ditto Just Like Honey)
21Have a Nice Life
Deathconsciousness


"A Quick One Before The Eternal Worm Devours Connecticut"

(sadbois more catatonically and loopably than the rest of the album and ends up the most enduring winner - a victory for democracy, thank you Sput for showing me the light here)
22Shinichi Atobe
Butterfly Effect


"Butterfly Effect"

(is the one)
23Shinichi Atobe
Ship-Scope


"Ship-Scope"

(is the other one this boi reps that early peak hard)
24Aphex Twin
Selected Ambient Works 85-92


"Xtal"

(is very firmly true up until "Windowlicker" (and several subsequent tracks also), but that's a long enough reign that we'll allow it)
25Leonard Cohen
Songs of Leonard Cohen


"Suzanne"

(nothing can do what this does)
26Arcade Fire
Funeral


"Neighbourhood #1 (Tunnels)"

(indub)
