My vote goes for The Velvet Underground and Nico. It was their best album and incredibly influential.

I voted Daft, but Velvet Underground is probably the choice. Also, Sex Pistols should be substituted with The Clash.

There are way too many albums out there that should make this list. To make a poll like this you need like 1000000 spots and not just 10 like the board allows haha.

Haha, I am the only one who voted for the Sex Pistols so far!

I'm gonna get bashed but "Appetite For Destruction" is one of the best of all time. Say what you want about that band now but that album is great

I totally agree with you. I would put Metallica's Kill 'Em All on that list too.

Whoever voted for Bjork, Sigur Ros or the Beatles fails. These are the wrong answers.

Kill 'Em All is arguably the best metal album of all time, IMO

Yup, this poll is a joke so I have to vote for a non-debut album.

She had one when she was really young and then one of Jazz standards sung in Icelanding. Both were extremely successful in Iceland, and both were billed as Bjork, so Debut would be her third solo album.
And, Meet the Beatles is the U.S. version of Please Please Me, which is the first Beatles album. Cmon.

...the first White Stripes album is phenomenal. it's amazing how much everyone has slept on their first two records.. I've heard so many people refer to White Blood Cells as if it is their first.....

Slushmier
03-08-2007, 05:58 PM
Yeah, Marquee Moon by Television should be on there and is the best. Truly, having the audacity to put an 11 minute song on your debut and then make it the best song ever recorded, that takes gall for a debut.

...and then there's also Blue Lines by Massive Attack, Illmatic by Nas, Is This It by the Strokes, Moon Safari by Air, Franz Ferdinand self title, and at the risk of flaming, the first Foo Fighters album.

You forgot Led Zeppelin I. I would have voted for that.
Led Zeppelin I: Best Debut Album of All Time.
I like Hendrix's Are You Experienced best out of the poll choices given, although NIN's Pretty Hate Machine is a close second.

Ditto. I love their first album. The first song (Jimmy the Exploder) often wakes me up as soon as I get in my car to go to work, and is my official 'driving in shitty LA traffic' song.

Glad somebody thinks so. I was hoping it'd inspire more debate about the merits of particular albums against one another as opposed to the "Duh, you forgot such and such band" that I should have anticipated more. I didn't include Rage Against the Machine because even though I actually like that album, I was worried that it would garner an inordinate amount of posts from Rage fans who just wanted another excuse to declare their devotion to Rage. I didn't include Led Zeppelin knowing full well that would be a conspicuous omission because I don't own any of their CDs. (I know, I'm a heathen and should be caned.) And I didn't include Portishead's "Dummy," Jeff Buckley's "Grace," and Massive Attack's "Blue Lines" 'cause I'm an idiot who compiled the post in a rush before I headed off to work this morning.

I voted Sigur ros (because I am biased) even though it wasn't their debut (that would be Von) or as earth shattering as The VU debut..So my true vote would have be Vu and nico.

Not really. Blow Out is amazing, Creep, You, and Lurgee are great, the rest is either average or horrible.

How Do You? is one of the worst songs in history.

03-09-2007, 11:43 AM
so....it occurred to me this morning when I woke up...that Portishead's Dummy should really rank with the best of them, such as LedZep I, Are You Experienced...particularly in that it was this sort of new ground being broken.
