100 Greatest Debut Albums of All Time

Posted by: Jason Tate (03/28/13)
Rolling Stone have posted their "100 Greatest Debut Albums of All Time" list.
A note on how we made the list: Albums got docked points if the artist went on to far greater achievements (which is why Please, Please Me and Greetings from Asbury Park, great as they are, didn't made the top ten); conversely, we gave a little extra recognition to great debut albums that the artist never matched (hello, Is This It and Illmatic!). We also skipped solo debuts by artists who were already in well-known bands, which is why you won’t see John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band or Paul Simon. We focused, instead, on debuts that gave you the thrill of an act arriving fully-formed, ready to reinvent the world in its own image.

That's the part that makes this interesting and difficult to judge -- got me thinking about a more "scene-centric" list. Off the top of my head I got ...

Taking Back Sunday - Tell All Your Friends
Say Anything - Is a Real Boy
The Living End - Self-Titled

'Greatest Love Songs Vol. 666' by HIM should be on this list.

If Baseball doesn't count for Say Anything, does Evening Out... not count for FOB?

I would say Saosin's self titled but they took so long to release it It would've been ahead of its time

I don't think Baseball and EO really count ... they weren't really released.

My Chemical Romance is obviously my answer. Also, The Used and I agree with yours too.

I think MCR went on to do greater achievements and get docked points.
