Favorite Debut Albums

Recommended Posts

Most of what has already been mentioned on this thread, another one that I really like is Alice in Chains - Facelift, it was a prime example of grunge blended with 90's hard rock. It displayed a promising series of guitar work with identifiable lyrics.

Today and tonight I listened to Boston's debut album (one of my first albums owned) & their follow up "Don't Look Back", and WOW...they sound so amazing. I think I played "A Man I'll Never Be", "More Than a Feeling" and "Don't Look Back" 20 times each!

What they put out for albums may have been few and far between, and many people say that all their songs sound alike (like AC/DC's), but IMO they were incredible. Tom Scholz, an MIT engineer, was brilliant! :bow:

Brad Delp (his voice is one of the best in rock and roll) was making coils in a factory for Mr. Coffee machines while he sang locally here and there. Thank God someone took notice.

Greetings From Asbury Park...Da Boss

I'll second that - fantastic album - all those words, including, "I swear I found the key to the universe in the engine of an old parked car".
