Here's a fun bloghop starting over at DiscConnected today. The idea is to list 8 albums that hit mega success on their debut. Doesn't always happen, but man, when it does, it just rocks.
On the flip side, sometimes that's the problem with being so successful right off the bat. They have their own awesomeness to compete with, and they don't always quite cut it. Gee, I hope I'm so unfortunate with my first novel. ;)
So here are mine:
My top 8 debut albums that just kicked butt. Not just a few songs, but every song from start to finish.
In no particular order....
1. Pearl Jam - Ten
2. Nine Inch Nails - Pretty Hate Machine
3. Tori Amos - Little Earthquakes
4. Ben Folds Five - Ben Folds Five
5. Janet Jackson - Control
6. Guns & Roses - Appetite for Destruction
7. Coldplay - Parachutes
8. Sublime - Sublime
And for extra credit, let me just add Michael Jackson's Off the Wall.
Golly gee, these bands are really swell. ;) I can listen to each of these albums from start to finish and love every single song.
Don't forget to check out the other entries and see if you agree. Now, it's your turn. Which albums would you say hit superstar status with their debut album? Which ones could you listen to over and over?
