This is a thread where everyone can list bands who have, in your opinions, awesome first albums but you were really disappointed in their next studio efforts. For me, there would have to be threefold. Franz Ferdinand: their first album was awesome and I can't think of a song that I didn't really enjoy listening too. Their second album however was thoroughly disappointing and they left out a lot of what made their first album a real treat to listen to. The Killers: Loved their first album, many memorable songs. But I just couldn't get into their second album. It just lacked something, I can't put my finger on what. Wednesday 13: Transylvania 90210 still one of my favorite albums of all time. Just a great album with comical content but still some hard hitting shock n roll music. The gimmick, the music, the lyrical content were all thoroughly enjoyable. Fang Bang however was a real let down. It did the opposite of what Franz did and added nothing new to the musical mix, nothing to excite me. Hoping all these bands will have better studio efforts in the future!
