    What’s the best debut album of all time?

    (And just to make it sort of equitable, let’s not count former band’s frontmen’s solo albums as a debut. That’s right – no voting for Chris Cornell’s Euphoria Morning. [img]images/smiles/converted/wink.gif[/img])

    My vote (which may change) is NIN’s Pretty Hate Machine. Or maybe the Cranberries’ Everyone Else Is Doing It So why Can’t We.

    Um… I’ll get back to you on my vote. But the rest of you, list your favorite. [img]images/smiles/converted/biggrin.gif[/img]



    The Velvet Underground`s debut comes to my mind instantly.

    Ooooooooooh… I may change my vote to that.



    Here`s some more good debuts:
    Pavement-Slanted And Enchanted
    Sugar-Copper Blue
    Throwing Muses-Throwing Muses
    Eric`s Trip-Love Tara
    Come-Eleven Eleven
    Bettie Serveert-Palomine
    Son Volt-Trace
    Mazzy Star-She Hangs Brightly
    Black Flag-Damaged
    Flying Saucer Attack-Flying Saucer Attack
    Poison 13-Poison 13
    Archers Of Loaf-Icky Mettle
    Olivia Tremor Control-Music from the unrealized film…
    Fugazi-13 songs(their first 2 EP`s)

    I think that`s enough for now.



    No Doubt, That Must be Kiss My Jazz in Doc’s Place Friday Evening, Great Beautiful Album
    U should try to listen to it, U wont regret it

    C Ya



    Guns N Roses

    Appetite For Destruction
    there first album
    and every song on that album gets played at the biggest rock station in NYC so i think its safe to say GNR, since or maybe the Beatles first album when you look at the career of the Beatles

    Salami – you are a veritable source of wisdom.

    On another note – let’s play 6 degrees of Billy Corgan. OK… Billy Corgan was in a band named Smashing Pumpkins which had a guitarist named James Iha which owned a record studio named Scratchie Records which signed a band named Fugazi. Corgan to Fugazi in 4.

    Also, Iha played on the album Wack Azz Tuba Riff for Fugazi, I believe.



    Are there two bands named Fugazi?
    The one I`m talking about is from Washington,DC;one of the most well known indie bands;they`re on Discord Records.
    Scratchie records?it seems unlikely someone would call their band Fugazi,knowing that another well known band has the same name.
    The Pumpkins know about DC`s Fugazi!I think they toured with DC band Shudder To Think,another Dischord band.


    Surrealist Girl

    you’ve got good taste Salamiguy.
    i bought the Eric’s Trip album on a whim…it caught my eye
    a. Sonic youth song.
    b. my name is Tara.
    so i had to try them out. i still listen to that cd to this day. It’s great.
    and i also have to agree with you on the Fugazi.



    Black Flag – Damaged
    Leonard Cohen – Songs Of Leonard Cohen
    Nick Drake – Five Leaves Left

    Jesus, what is this supposed to mean? Do we have to like the debut of Britney spears just because of her career?
    And Salamiguy, I liked the first two 12" by Swervedriver, but with Raise they´d already lost it me thinks.

    I wonder why no one mentioned the debut of the Violent Femmes. Such a classic.
    Also Fat Axl by Silverfish
    Lido by th Faith Healer
    Scarified by the Dirt Merchants (whatever became of them)
    and -of course- Domestique by the Delgados.
