They had an idea for the first album, it went off, and what to do after? They simply have no idea what the prospects are and in what direction to develop. This situation can only be with people living one day. Although this is only a guess.
      I think many acts struggle with a second album because they have less time to record it compared to the first one, & often ending up having to use left over tracks from the first one, or else going in a different direction & losing fans as the end result is too different.

        Exactly.. plus the first album is basically a collection of years and years songs then they pick the best ... turn suddenly they are touring and promoting the album but the record company want them to record a second album .

          Well, very often the first album is written when the group is created. When it comes to a production project. But nuggets of songs in a lifetime can have 10 albums. The question is quality. A real creator sometimes improves over time, which means that the first songs may not be so impressive.

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

            A band that bucked that trend though was Genesis.

            Trespass - their second album, was orders of magnitude better than the instantly forgettable From Genesis to Revelation.

              Sometimes some acts take a while to record their first album as they aren't used to working in a recording studio, so by the time they release their first album they have evolved musically & their second album is better as they are more used to recording. This is certainly true of Queen, who managed to release their first 3 albums in just over a year.
