Debut album is still their best album


Recommended Posts

Not talking about the "one and done" artists or "two and dropped", but more those artists that released five or more albums but their debut still remains their best release. 

Slaughter springs to my mind, along with Guns N Roses. 

Can you think of any others?

One of my first thoughts too. 

Some others-

Bon Jovi

Poison

Hard question, though, as both arguable, as would Slaughter be arguable with 'Fear No Evil.' For the record, I'd give the nod to the debut too, but it's close.

I'll do this for fun-

Bon Jovi - agree

Harem Scarem - agree

Tyketto - agree wholeheartedly

Reckless Love - agree

Danger Danger - too close to call for me, but definitely possible

Vain - agree

FM - I prefer 'Tough it out,' personally

GnR - agree, obviously

Dare - I prefer 'Blood from stone'

House of Lords - agree

Lillian Axe - I prefer 'Love and war'

Firehouse - agree

Love/Hate - agree as there's no competition afterwards, lol

Slaughter - agree, but 'Fear no evil' a very valid contender.

I think I'd agree with those, but as noted Giant is a coin flip.

I really love both albums, but overall for me, it has to be 'Blood' by a small margin.

Asia-for me Astra is best John Wettons album,and with John Payne either Aqua or Aura.

FM-Tough it out for me,but close call. Indiscreet is more AOR,Tough it out melodic rock.

Thunder-yeah

GNR-yes as a full album,but some individual illusion songs may be better.

Dare-yes,I love second album too,but Out of the silence sounds timeless,one of the greatest AOR albums.

HOL-yes.

Lillian axe-Poetic justice for me! True believer,Dying to live,See you someday,Living in the grey,Innocence,so many killer tunes.

Firehouse-yes no doubt.

Love/hate-yup yup.

Slaughter-yap yap.

Always with the Vain. smh. Terrible band no matter how you slice it. My opinion so all you Davey Vain chode chokers just enjoy.

Some other fair assessments however the DRN and their self titled album, which was their 2nd btw, sure the first was an EP, but Slam and The Heat are both bangers.

I'd say Motley's first Too Fat For Love is their most complete, no skip album. Sure others followed that may have been more successful, but were hit and miss.

One that really fits this bill is Pearl Jams 10. Perfect record, cuz really it was Mother Love Bones 3rd record with Vedder singing, but they never had another equal.

Metal Church's first set the bar way to high and sure they made some great music after, but the self titled 1984 record on Ground Zero Records with BUG GUNS is fucking perfect through and through.

    • Should be a good match. 
    • Congrats on progressing, England. But, how good is Mbappe for France!
    • Unfortunately, this doesn't surprise me. These days, a lot of people have difficulty accepting criticism.
    • Ridiculous. Wait until you see the kids one I'm talking about. Appallingly untruthful.
    • Carpenter Brut - Leather Terror (Synthwave) Disturbed - Divisive (Metal) Matthew Ward - Armed and Dangerous (AOR) Atomic Swing - A Car Crash in the Blue (Power Pop) Red - End of Silence (Symphonic Metal) Todd Rundgren's Utopia - S/T (Prog Rock) Black Stone Cherry - The Human Condition (Southern Rock)
    • Only caught the highlights, but man, that second goal the Aussies conceded was pure pain to watch. Still cringing just thinking about it. Shame, because otherwise they had a brilliant tournament. It would have been close to a miracle for them to get past Argentina, so I look at the team and their efforts with pride. Oh, and that last minute shot the Aussie dude had... what could have been. But yeah, they gave it a really good crack. As for my Plan B, sorry 'Mericans, but I was very happy to see the mighty Dutch get through and, as per every other world cup, lol, my interest now turns to seeing what they can do. Would actually really love to see them win the thing.  Oh, and speaking of stuff, how awesome were some of the goals from Switzerland in their match vs Serbia. Very impressive. 
    • Simple sound quality / production, but sounds nice. 
    • Nice. Yeah, I don't know mate. Of the songs I posted above, the two from the second album actually seem to be better sound quality than the first. Hard to say if that's across the board, though, or if the sound varies from demo to demo. 
    • I was trying to find the ad running here too, but also couldn't find it on the web. Some moronic thing about there being a new wave or strain or something so we should all wear masks indoors and crowded spaces. We even got a note from our school the other day that in order to go and watch a Christmas assembly the kids are doing, parents will be required to wear a mask now, because of an alleged surge of cases in the local area.  What's become blatantly obvious to me in the last few years is that we are communicated to as if we're all absolute morons. Whether it's via our government or the media, we are spoken to like braindead pieces of shit. Sadly, in many cases they're spot on, hitting their target audience. But as someone with some semblance of a brain (and not even much of it, to be fair), I just simply don't get it.
