  • Disappointing SECOND albums ..

    So just listened to the latest ( second ) album of London Grammar .. the first was fabulous but this second one leaves me cold [emoji20]

    It got me thinking how many other artists released disappointing second albums ..

    Paolo Nutini's second was a stinker as was The Fratellis ..


    I know the theory is that the artists cram all their life's best songs into their first LP ...


    Just my opinions here of course

    Have to say as a massive RUSH fan i dident care much for albums 1,2 or 3. They do say that a bands second album is always the most difficult for the reason Zincubus gives
    Ejector seat?...your jokin!

      Endlessly by Duffy, not awful but not nearly as good as the her debut Rockferry.

        Mike Oldfield's Hergest Ridge was a bit of a disappointment after Tubular Bells.

            Oddly it got to number 1 on the album charts before Tubular Bells did!

                King Crimson's "In the Wake of Poseidon" was nowhere near as good as their classic first album "In the Court of the Crimson King."

                  A band local to Chesterfield called Saracen released a cracking first album "Heroes, Saints and Fools" in 1981, full of pomp and catchy rock riffs. However the 1984 follow up "A Change of Heart" was exactly that: weak, weedy and distinctly not living up to the promise of their debut.

                    After the classic Lexicon of Love, ABC’s follow up , Beauty Stab , was such a let down

                      Supposedly Martin Fry was trying to shed his super slick squeaky clean image at the time, which didn't help things.

                        I was disappointed in the second album by The Sundays. Oddly a lot of people say it was their favorite but I found at best one track worth having whereas I loved the first, and the much later, third albums. To a lesser degree I found the second album by the New York group Television disappointing, except there is one track on it, Days, that I really love. Again their first, and much later, third albums I treasure.
