Now I know we're all supposed to say that QueenI is our favourite debut album of all time. but is it ?

List your three favourite debut albums of all time. Mine are:-

1: Fastway - Fastway.

Released in the early eighties. Fastway were formed by the coming together of Motorhead guitarist Eddie 'Fast Gun' Clarke and UFO bassist Pete Way, along with Humble Pie drummer Jerry Shirley and vocalist Dave King, literally plucked from the street and into the studio. King has a fantastic bluesy voice in the Robert Plant style. Unfortunately due to clashing egos, this band were doomed from the start. But if you like melodic bluesy rock with flashes of Led Zep, Sabbath and their ilk, I strongly recommend it.

2: Permission To Land - The Darkness.

Yes I know, it's probably heresy, but I found this debut from the Lowestoft boys to be a much needed breath of fresh air. I never got the queen comparisons (much more like 70's AC/DC if anything, in fact when I put on the opening track Black Shuck for the first time, I had to check that I hadn't brought Dirty Deeds by mistake). What they do share with our guys is the ability to remind everyone that music should be fun and entertaining, and thank god they don't take themselves too seriously.

3: a toss up between:

Far From These Castle Walls - Chris de Burgh

A million light years from the Saccherrine (?) sweet Lady In Red. This release from 1971 contains some of the most heart wrenching ballads ever committed to vinyl. Listen to Satin Green Shutters or Hold On for proof. This guy was selling out Wembley Arena before most of the population had even heard of him.

and:-

Demolition - Girlschool

Went to see Black Sabbath on their Heaven and Hell tour and Girlschool was the support band, as they trotted onto the stage I remember feeling sorry for them expecting them to be slaughtered by the male chauvanist Sabbath crowd.
They remain to this day the only true support band (as opposed to a big name 'special guest')who have been called back for an encore. Demolition debuted in the top 40 album chart (when that was actually quite a big deal) on the back of reviews from the tour. Great fun from start to end.

Oh, and kelly was a fox !

Black Sabbath- Black sabbath
And the metal had been invented... In 1970 those bells and than this riff- shit, that must have been scarry... And the maniac Ozzy vocals, screaming for help... AWESOME!!! Without this band the whole METAL genre wouldn't exist!!! Highlights? N.I.B. , title track, Wizard

King Crimson- In The Court Of The Crimson King
It's not a music- it's a journey! Amazing stuff, love Lake's input, the atmosphere... Absolutely powerfull, even after all those years. Apart from "RED" it's also their best work, IMO anyway. Highlights? 21st Century Schizoid Man, Epitaph, title track...

Pearl Jam- Ten
Now that's whai I call to get it right with the first album. No low points, although they got it even better with VS. Grunge (is it really?) at its best. highlights? jeremy, Alive, Black, Even Flow... every second track is a highlight :)

What about Led Zeppelin "I"?
Jimi Hendrix' debiut anyone?
Or Metallica's "Kill'em All"?

Don't you just love it when people pay attention?

Queen - Possibly my favourite album of all time

Unknown Pleasures (Joy Division) - about as dark as it gets, but a truly magnificent debut, mainly due to Genius producer Martin Hannet's demented skill behind a mixing desk.

Contraband (Velvet Revolver) - a fantastic debut from one of the best new bands to have come along in the past ten years! Roll on album number 2 in June!

Oh boy. Debut album. Meaning- first album of some band. You can't have 2 first albums, can you?
Debut album- album you debuted with.

Boston - Boston (Seminal 70s FM rock)

Guns N Roses - Appetite for Destruction (how quickly we forget, blows Velvet Revolver away)

The Darkness - Permission to Land (even though it's becoming cliche to list that, best all-around album I'd heard in years)

I agree that Appetite blows Velvet Revolver out of the water.....

I, though, do not consider anything that Audioslave or Velvet Revolver as a "debut" in the same sense of Queen in 1973, or Led Zeppelin's first, etc...

Guys from established bands that break up and reform, in my book, does not constitute a debut.
