Not usually one for Rolling Stone's lists; but I like the thought process behind this. Who have their classic sound most evolved when they put their first record out - not necessarily who the best band was. Someone like "Hootie and the Blowfish" (who had years behind them before they got a break) would score high on this

Off the top of my head:


Hootie is a great one.

A few others:
Black Crowes Shake Your Money Maker
Van Halen
Boston

I'm sure there are others...

Cool criteria. I do think the ABB sound mighty fine on their debut, and the persistence of those songs in their live setlists bears that out.

Otherwise: The Cars' first album is a total knock-out in terms of a band having their sound nailed. That album is bullet-proof. What great guitar parts, no joke. Each guitar lick shines.

Black Sabbath's first album is just about my favorite by them, even if the second album has more hits and more polish and their work becomes less bluesy.

While Jeff Beck would refine his sound MUCH more than the sound of the first Jeff Beck group album, its influence is so huge that it must be considered an important debut album. Ditto the first King Crimson album. Actually, since both Jeff Beck and King Crimson insisted on constantly changing their sounds, they defy lists...

Although I am not a big fan of the band, I think the Doors first album is not only their best, but one of the top 100 maybe even top 50 Rock albums. That being said it has got to be the best first album. The first Allman Brothers Band album, especially the first side is another.

R.E.M. -Murmur

They had a compelling, totally unique sound right from the start, and these songs were well honed by near constant touring. Their producers Mitch Easter and Don Dixon captured them beautifully.

Forget Losing My Religion, this was the real , true spirit of what R.E.M. was about musically.



Ramones

It is true that they could only do one thing but they did it very very well. And they showed everyone just what they could do here.

"Captain Beyond", still largely unnoticed after over 40 years. What a cryin' shame.

Notably missing from Rolling Stone's list-
Crosby, Stills, and Nash
King Crimson- In The Court Of The Crimson King
Steely Dan- Can't Buy A Thrill

My personal suggestion-
Mike Oldfield- Tubular Bells

Not in this household...

You are 100% correct sir. A stunning debut still...

I don'tlike the music either; but they came out of the box with their sound. Hell; 1910 Fruitgum Company made a statement from the beginning

Every time I go to a rollingstone link here my PC gets attacked by a virus. This happen to anyone else?

So, I haven't seen the list, other than the Beastie Boys @ #1 which is ludicrous.

I'll bet Twice Removed From Yesterday by Robin Trower didn't make it.

I'll go with the ABB first record too. Phenomenal breakout.

ABB was a great breakout; but do you hear in it what you hear at LAFE?

Yes I clicked on a rolling stone link nd a virus tried to attach itself. Thank goodness I run a very good antivirus...

No way, I enjoy LAFE more (just got the MFSL too, amazing!), but I was on re debut records. I always preferred live ABB, they are one of those few groups that top their studio work live.

Are You Experienced? is a pretty cliche answer, but it's hard to say anything else. Jimi was so revolutionary at the time, and was pretty much "Jimi Hendrix" in full force right from the start. Some people think it's the best album Hendrix ever did. I'm not one of those people--Electric Ladyland for me--but you can make a case for it as not only one of the best debut albums, but one of the best albums, period.

Their debut was much better than anything else they did as far as I'm concerned.A very good album.

Just think the first record wasn't quite there even though the material was great.

I don't think they ever got as scary as they did that first record, that thing is dark and it rips.
Super tortured power blues, nothing like it before or since.

The first 4 albums were off the hook....major slide started to happen around Chicago V...by VII they were on their way to being Bread with horns

I'll say

The Allman Brother band first was strong. It may not have sold a lot but freeking mind blowing for me when I heard it....the opening tunes....no better on any first album. Made a strong statement of introduction...sort like the running of the bulls...

I do like Black Sabbaths first...love Tony Iommi, for me the most tasteful heavy metal player by a long shot

David Grisman's first album.....mind blowing playing gorgeous songs and the soaring feeling that only acoustic instruments can bring. The first song is almost as much of a mind bend as the ABB album....certainly a desert Island pick
