Bands with only one good album

What bands had only one stand out album?
ie: they had at least 2 albums, but the others were shit and there was one diamond.

For me it's Loud & Clear - Discconnected.
I've tried really hard to listen to other material but it just doesn't come close.

What other bands had only one killer CD?

Loud And Clear only had two albums didn't they?

Even so, I kinda disagree. The debut album was "good", Disconnected was awesome.

 

Beyond that, if they had any other albums (unless you count Rock Sugar which is a different band),  it is news to me.

Yeah, just edited my post, I meant to type 2 not 3.

What I'm hoping to find here is another Discconnected. A killer album that i have missed.

Another one might be Haywire - Get Off.
Never been able to really dig the other albums.
Also Michael Sweet - S/T

Well the obvious two for me are Wildside and Sven Gali, two bands that I actually bought the debut albums together and loved, then years later picked up the second albums at the same time and thought "WTF?"

 

The debut albums for both bands are awesome. The second albums are pony.

Wildside's did have a couple of semi decent songs on it, but Sven Gali's was devoid of any merit.

 

As for Wildside's third album, that was a mix of unreleased tracks from both previous albums, so was patchy.

Good choices, those two would be at the top of my list also.  Another band that comes to mind for me is Sic Vikki whose debut I enjoyed, but they changed their style for their follow up and it was nowhere near as good.   SImilar to Wildside, Sic Vikki put out a third album with unreleased tracks, some of which were solid tunes, but it didn't match the consistent quality of the debut.

    • First, I'm just impressed you found a video where you can actually hear Lzzy; everything I'd seen the last 2 days was terrible sound quality. With that said, she sounds fine. Not gonna make anyone forget Sebastian, or Erik for that matter, but she'll do a good job filling in 👍
    • Was this release on an EP CD?

    • From Escape Music: KEYS has just completed their second album, “The Grand Seduction”.   This all-keyboard band is the brainchild of singer Jake E (Cyhra, Amaranthe and others) and keyboardist Mark Mangold (Touch, Drive, She Said, Michael Bolton, Cher, Paul Rogers and others) with Emanuel Bagge (Sweden’s Got Talent Finalist) on additional vocals and keys, Irwan Fabrien (noted keyboard guitar sound designer) with help of drum gurus Alex Landenburg (Kamelot, Cyhra and others).   Featuring live performances with three keyboardists and a huge battery of keyboards, this ambitious band brings keyboard and instrumental prowess to new heights while playing songs that run the gamut from scathing progressive melodic forays to catchy and melodic rock anthems …and Jake’s award-winning voice (Burrn Vocalist of the year 2020).   Previous KEYS album also featured guest keyboard additions by Charlie Calv of Angel and others.   Though songs are first and foremost, this band shows the versatility of keyboards in this day and age.  These artfully crafted songs are ripe with scathing synth, organ and “guitar” pyrotechnics, dazzling time signatures and drumming, bombastic choruses and “guitar” riffs (played on keyboards with the now available plug in’s that perfectly emulate guitars).  As Mark and Jake are first and foremost award winning songwriters, they never lose sight of the composition and melodies, though couched in the very signature and hard to pigeon hole sound (isn’t that the whole point?) of this band and Jake's 4 octave vocal range.   Release Date: 19th July 2024 CD Catalogue No: ESM389   CD Track List: 1. THE GRAND SEDUCTION 9:02 2. ALL I NEED  6:49 3. SHINING SAILS  5:51 4. SWITCHBLADE  6:02 5. VORTEX   4:06 6. SKIN AND BONES  6:42 7. TURN TO DUST    4:42 8. CRAZY TOWN   7:43 9.
