    Dêja Vu isn't really a debut, CSN just added three members.

    An album released even before the actual band existed. See, kiddies?

    To you, perhaps.
    But certainly not for everyone on this site.

    I was really disappointed with Candy-O to be honest.

    I'd say Boston, but every album they released since sounded like the first one...

    Hmmm I like Candy-O almost as much as the 1st album, Panorama was the one that lost me.

    Yup. VH1 for sure!

    As a kid, my sister gave me this one to listen to and I think I wore it out.

    Styx - Pieces of Eight

    This one also is my all time favorite. It may have been the first one I bought myself. It remains my favorite album to date still.

    I think you could safely argue that subsequent releases by these artists have never beaten their debuts.

    Zazu, a prog rock group out of the Chicago area. Only one LP, their self-titled debut.
    And another vote for Boston.
