Top 10 Music Artists that Released Two or More Albums in One Year

Metal_Treasure
EPs count.
Some music artists are prolific - this doesn't always mean quality but some of the albums released in one year were incredible.
I admit it was difficult to find a balance between quality and quantity of the albums by the respective artists.

The Contenders: Page 2

21 Brockhampton - Saturation I, II, III
22 The Brian Jonestown Massacre - Take It From the Man, Their Satanic Majesties' Second Request, Thank God for Mental Illness (1996) The Brian Jonestown Massacre - Take It From the Man, Their Satanic Majesties' Second Request, Thank God for Mental Illness (1996)

3 albums - in just 5 months they released 3 albums, consisting of 49 tracks in 3 and a half hours.
Like Creedence Clearwater Revival, the Brian Jonestown Massacre somehow managed to release 3 albums in a single year, but BJM outdid CCR in two ways.
1) all three of BJM's 1996 albums are over an hour long, while CCR's didn't break 40 minutes.
2) while CCR released its first 1969 album in January, BJM didn't release its first 1996 album until May, which means that in just 5 months, the BJM released 3 albums with 49 tracks in 3 and a half hours. - Metal_Treasure

26 Bob Dylan - The Times They Are a-Changin', Another Side of Bob Dylan (1964) Bob Dylan - The Times They Are a-Changin', Another Side of Bob Dylan (1964) Bob Dylan is an American singer-songwriter, artist and writer . he won the Nobel Prize for literature in 2016 .

Both are EPs. - Metal_Treasure

27 Belle & Sebastian - Tigermilk, If You're Feeling Sinister (1996)

Belle & Sebastian's music isn't complex, but the sheer size of the band and the depth of the song arrangements suggest that each album should take at least a couple of weeks to finish. However, the band recorded its first two (and best) albums in just a matter of days in 1996, and released both of them between June and November of that year. - Metal_Treasure
