    Same for George with All Things Must Pass, IMO.

    I considered Stink as an album, but I'll go with your choice!

    I found the actual winner - that is to say that I love the debut album but this one sold 3 million copies and had 3 top 10 UK singles while the band was 21... deserved all of the sales too, not commercialized or anything really.

    I always thought it was too but apparently it's an EP. I was perfectly happy saying Hootenanny but I checked Wikipedia and it says Let It Be was their 3rd album release.

    Ha ha!
    Yes, Actually I hesitated for a brief moment...
    But “Damn The Torpedoes” seemed such an instant classic from first listen, from start to finish.

    First one I thought of. Green River pretty much made CCR a household name in U.S., coming after their first two, definitely strong albums.

    London Calling is a great album, but the debut blows it away.

    The Muggs - Born Ugly
    Even though the first two are great albums, their third is by far the overall best for me.

    I understand your example, but his second record might be my fave.
    How about the Allman Brothers...Fillmore East was third. Or third “studio” album was Eat a Peach!

    This, of course, is correct.

    Love the first two, but this one is where the band really hit epic status.

    If you count "Broken" as a second release, "The Downward Spiral" by Nine Inch Nails.
