Now that the 10 year celebrations and musicians’ favourite music countdown is over and done with it’s time to jump on the next bandwagon!
Each Thursday, for the next few months we will be featuring some of the best music from all over the world with top 20 lists for categories such as b-sides, EPs, and double albums.
Starting things off, debut albums seemed like the best place to start. In some cases these were the albums that launched the bands into bigger and better things, other times it was their own and only album before disappearing.
Obviously limiting the list to 20 means there are many amazing debut albums that didn’t get mentioned, so if your favourite isn’t on the list feel free to mention it in the comments!
