    Hmmmm...
    I’m gonna go with either “VH I” or
    “Appetite For Destruction”.
    Honorable mentions for “Never Mind The Bollocks”, “Kill Em All”, and “Black Sabbath”.

    Steely Dan- Can't Buy a Thrill

    Edit-( I think Do It Again, from the moment of that intro, plus all that follows, is just one of the coolest, literally ' grooviest' songs ever written and performed)

    John Prine ( aka Illegal Smile)
    I LOVE JOHN PRINE!

    Still a great debut though right? Thread isn't best album released by an artist.

    It'd be difficult if not impossible to argue that Are You Experienced wasn't a great, if not the greatest, debut album ever. Massive pivot point in music and how guitar was approached after... But it wouldn't be a stretch to say it wasn't his "best".

    Artists build on what came before. With rare exception do they come out of the gate with their career defining work. Those that do have short careers, at least short in the productive realm. Guns and Roses comes to mind. I don't like them but it's easy to see the impact of AFD. But it was downhill on the worlds biggest and fastest skateboard from there with regard to quality of follow up.

    It’s got to be The Beatles’ Please, Please me. Isn’t it the beachhead of the British invasion and all that came after because of it?

    Having said that, Van Halen’s and GnR’s made such an impact....
