Whoa, it's Mike Selleck!

Greg,

"Cantcha Say" is one of my favorites as well. I also love "It's Easy" and "A Man I'll Never Be' from the 2nd album. As Saul Rubinek says to Christian Slater in True Romance "we park our cars in the same garage, my friend"...

So I'll ask the questions again: one, what bands hit the scene the hardest with their debut albums only to never find that success again (someone earlier mentioned the Gin Blossoms; great first album, but they were more of a one-off, like the Spin Doctors - i.e., hardly relevant after their debut); and what is the best debut album of all time?

The 80's are littered with these type of bands.

Some of us might remember how big Asia was when that came out.  Same thing can be said for Men at Work.  Those albums overwhelmed everything else on the radio at the time, and promised quite a bit that never came to fruition.

For a favorite debut -- at least, one that is high on the list -- from a band that did have some staying power -- I would go with Outlandos d'Amour, from the Police.  (Though I will admit to growing weary of "Roxanne.")

Does the porno shoot start soon, Mike?   I see you've grown your main prop again?


Haha, no.  I just uploaded the photo from last year.  I didn't grow a beard this year, so I wasn't able to take any snazzy pics in the middle of shaving it off.

Freddie Mercury called, Mike.  He wants his mustache back.  Oh, and he's still dead.

I'll bring up AC/DC's Back in Black- though true, it's not exactly a debut album, outside of Brian Johnson replacing Bon Scott, however, nothing else they've done has come close to the impact of Back in Black...

Good call.  While it wasn't a "debut" album, it was still the beginning of a new era for the band and is the second greatest selling album of all time.  Not sure if it's an acceptable answer for this thread, though

And as awesome of an album as BiB is, Highway to Hell is still my favorite from AC/DC by about a fraction of a point.

Yeah, good call on the Police, bert.  I bought their second and third albums before getting OdA. Some really good tunes on it, apart from Roxanne and I Can't Stand Losing You. I love Truth Hits Everybody.  I still have all three records.
