Incredible debut albums

Don’t think we’ve done a debut albums thread for a while and with Generation Terrorists turning 30 seems like a good day for this thread

This is the first one that springs to mind, it’s perfect and they never bettered it.

I’d also include Murmur but it had been foreshadowed by the Chronic Town EP.

I’d urge those who’ve enjoyed the second Black Country, New Road album to go back and try the first again. It’s so smart and well put together - but I think has to be taken as a whole, since it seems to tell one story across six tracks (‘the best new six-part Danish crime drama’), and even has a twist ending!

Calculating Infinity is breathtaking really isn’t it?

‘Nothing’s shocking’ was pretty mind blowing at the time (debut studio LP).

If ever a band should have only released one perfect debut album and left it there…

I actually like the second album well enough, but the world had moved on in the intervening five years.
