Top 10 Albums that Surpass the Artist's Debut Album

Sometimes the 2nd or 3rd album beats the first album.

The Top Ten

1 Somewhere in Time - Iron Maiden

Also minor typo in this list to it was meant to say "Top 10 Albums that Surpass their Own Debut Album"

I think this one is self explanatory.

2 Silver Side Up - Nickelback

To me at least it was a big step up compared to their first album.

3 Minutes to Midnight - Linkin Park

Surpasses HT in terms of quality and variety.

4 Dookie - Green Day

For me it was either Dookie or American Idiot. I choose Dookie I guess cause it did sound better then the first album they made back in 91'.

5 Heaven and Hell - Black Sabbath

This is possibly my favorite Black Sabbath album. Every song is just great.

6 Finding Beauty In Negative Spaces - Seether

By far a lot better than their album with more of a harder sound.

7 The Game - Queen

Obviously a lot more improved than their debut album.

8 Highway to Hell - AC/DC

Their 3rd album really did set them loose though I will admit Back in Black made them famous.

9 Master of Puppets - Metallica

Beats their debut album by a lot.

10 Dirt - Alice in Chains

The Contenders

11 Scars & Souvenirs - Theory of a Deadman

This was the album that really showed how talented TOAD was.

12 Iowa - Slipknot
13 Blackbird - Alter Bridge

This was when Myles Kennedy realised his full potential as a guitarist as well as a singer. - SuperSonic17

14 City of Evil - Avenged Sevenfold

The album that cemented the band's established sound and features some of their best hits such as Beast and the Harlot and Bat Country. - SuperSonic17

Eh barely.

15 Vulgar Display of Power - Pantera

Way better than Metal Magic - christangrant

16 Dear Agony - Breaking Benjamin

Breaking Benjamin at their most emotionally powerful. - SuperSonic17

17 One X - Three Days Grace

More emotional than the first album.

18 In Utero - Nirvana

Better than Bleach by far.

19 American Idiot - Green Day
20 Siberia - Lights
21 The Dark Side of the Moon - Pink Floyd
