The Newcomers

? Genesis - Genesis

It's their twelfth album. That's probably the biggest gap of any album on the list (except for Weezer's new album when it comes out). - Gg2000

? Blur - Blur

Their fifth album, released with the purpose of breaking themselves out of the Britpop movement. - Gg2000

The Contenders

11 Def Leppard - Def Leppard
12 Motley Crue - Motley Crue
13 Weezer (Green Album) - Weezer
14 Weezer (White Album) - Weezer
15 Weezer (Red Album) - Weezer
16 Avenged Sevenfold - Avenged Sevenfold
17 Annihilator - Annihilator
18 Saint Vitus - Saint Vitus
19 Metal Church - Metal Church
20 Sodom - Sodom
21 Fleetwood Mac - Fleetwood Mac

This is an interesting case. Their first album, released in 1968, was self-titled. Their 1975 album (the one you see here) is also self-titled. To differentiate the two, the 1968 album is now commonly called "Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac". - Gg2000

22 Deep Purple - Deep Purple

This album is commonly referred to as Deep Purple III (for obvious reasons). - Gg2000

23 The Velvet Underground - The Velvet Underground

Their third album. Since their first album was called "The Velvet Underground & Nico" (who wasn't technically a member), it doesn't really count. - Gg2000

24 The Band - The Band

It's actually their second album, not their first. - Gg2000
