Bands that had great first albums then not so much...


#1

First few that came to mind were Interpol, Bloc Party and Weezer. Interpol’s first album is somewhat derivative but I’d say it’s one of the best post-punk albums of the 00s. Same with Bloc Party. And we all know Weezer’s story…what are yours?

Now you know that’s not true.


#4

Lmao he popped into my head after the fact


#5

I like several of their albums, but Counting Crows have never been able to match or improve upon August & Everything After.


#6

Always loved Mrs. Potter and Einstein on the Beach but never actually owned one of their albums.


#7

August and Everything after, Recovering The Satellites and This Desert Life are all great albums.


#8

Tracy Chapman.

Kim Richey.


#9

Bloc Party


#10

Beethoven


#11

Not familiar. Are they gutter punk or post-hard core?


#12

Same


#13

Mary Margaret O’Hara


#14

The Wallflowers


#15

The Jesus & Mary Chain. Yeah Yeah Yeahs (not that they were bad after the 1st one, but they never topped it)


#16

Oh, wait…they only had one album. But, it was fucking stellar.


#17

I liked Coldplay’s Parachutes, but that’s all I liked from them. I realize I’ve set myself up for relentless ridicule.


#18

I really liked Parachutes also. They really took a turn for the worse into what they became. But no shame in admitting parachutes.


#19

Blind Melon


#20

Horken Fruit Fiber Chunks
