This is a list of bands that in my opinion have great debut albums.
I'm sure there are some years that will have multiple great debuts but I'm limiting to only putting one band per year. The one that I put in the list is (in my opinion) the best debut album of that year.

While I do listen to most genres, there will still be some genres (e.g. metalcore, ambient, etc.) that I don't often listen.
So don't expect to find albums in those genres but you're more than welcome to give suggestions as I'll give everything a try.

This list is in progress and will be updated whenever I remember. Last update: 16/10/2014
