my boss and I often get into conversations about music, mainly iconic albums (usually rock oriented) that have come out in the past 50 years. our discussion generally involve things like - best album of such & such year, best British rock album, best debut album, etc... so I figured I would bring the discussion here, and we'll do - greatest debut albums of all time. it can be a studio or live album, and it can be a full length or an e.p.

here's my constantly revolving list, in no particular order at all. feel free to contribute yours. mine is a top 20. subject to change at any time...

Ramones - s/t
Cheap Trick - s/t
Motorhead - s/t
Metallica - Kill 'Em All
The Who - My Generation
The Clash - s/t
Black Sabbath - s/t
Led Zeppelin - s/t
Jeff Buckley - Grace
Iron Maiden - s/t
Sex Pistols - Never Mind The Bollocks...
