    Default 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

    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

    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."
