Everyone knows about One Hit Wonders but which bands have produced one good album and that's it?

I'll start with Finch - What It Is To Burn

I'm sorry but nothing they released was even CLOSE to this.

I thought In Defense Of The Genre was a pretty damn good follow up to ...Is A Real Boy. Everything after that though was pretty bad.

In my opinion, the following bands never lived up to their debuts:

Cartel
fun.
Saosin (EP)
Scary Kids Scaring Kids (EP)
Senses Fail (EP)
Taking Back Sunday

Regarding the previously mentioned bands (Finch, Say Anything, and Funeral for a Friend), I've never found any of their albums particularly interesting, so I wouldn't put them in this thread.

There are a number of bands that only have on album and it's a great one, but that list would be pretty large.

Panic! at the Disco. Fever was so good and the follow ups were "meh" at best.

I love De-Loused In The Comatorium, but nothing else by The Mars Volta that I've heard really does anything for me.

Those two are my favorites by each band. They're definitely the most well-formed efforts from each band, at least.

This thread is definitely "which band has only one album you like" when I'd rather it be "which band had a well recieved album and no more after that" where Finch would definitely fit the bill
