  -  Thursday Discussion: Great Debut Albums Can Be a Curse (http://www.absolutepunk.net/showthread.php?t=2633062)

I guess you could say NFG's Sticks and Stones and/or self-titled as well.

Thursday being on this list surprises me. Since a large amount of people regard ND as their strongest.
Yelllowcard too. Their latest is just on the par of Ocean Avenue.
Mae and Cartel I agree with 100% though.
Ill put Jacks Mannequin on this list.

Wasn't catalyst pretty much well received by all fans ?

I totally disagree with The Ataris one.. at least that it's So Long Astoria. Blue Skies Broken Hearts had much more popularity, even as an indie-label release.

I thought so long Astoria got huge because of the boys of summer cover

^ This right here. 100%

Lovedrug - Pretend You're Alive (Though I have high hopes for Wild Blood)

Wasn't Mae's debut album "Destination: Beautiful" and not The Everglow?

Also, Third Eye Blind's self-titled should totally be on this list.

Bloc Party - Silent Alarm

same here, it's infuriating. The last Underoath records crap all over TOCS, which sounds basically like TBS with breakdowns and screaming.

oh well

my addition would be The Ugly Organ by Cursive. Even though it seems like a lot of older fans are back on board with the release of I Am Gemini.

A few more:

Andrew WK - I Get Wet
Punchline - Action
Reel Big Fish - Turn the Radio Off
Saves the Day - Stay What You Are

Again, they've all released good stuff since but those albums tend to be what everyone talks about.

if you're going to go with the Ataris i'd say that they've spent the rest of their career trying to live up to blue skies, broken hearts

defy_stars 02/16/12 03:11 PM

this happens for

El Cielo by dredg
Juturna by Circa Survive
Mutiny by Set Your Goals
Almost Here by The Academy Is...

Great ones I missed ... they define this category.
