  • Tracy Chapman -- Tracy Chapman (I'm not very keen on her latter stuff)
  • Marc Cohn -- Marc Cohn (I think his second album is as good as, if not better, than his debut; but this one has Walking in Memphis and has won more critical acclaim.)
I agree with all the above Falcon (you and I HAVE to talk music at length someday! The Queen and the Soldier is my favorite of that great first Suzanne Vega album too

I'll also throw in these

Tori Amos - Little Earthquakes -a stunning, brilliant debut

Connie Dover - Someone - wonderful music, especially as a debut

Sarah McLachlan - Touch - I STILL think this is her most unique, personal, powerful and best album

Crosby Stills and Nash - Crosby Stills and Nash

I was actualy thinking the same thing... great minds think alike, I guess.

MAs- Blue Lines was not only a brilliant album but it was influential too!

Anyway, that would be my top one.

Hmm good point but I'd really discount Bjork and Gling Glo as proper debuts (not int he context of this thread anyway).. Icelandic perhaps, worldwide no (since they only went into reprint after Debut), plus theres the fact that she wanted to start afresh after the SugarCubes, hence the name
