    How about first albums that should have been good, but we're so terrible that the artists' inability to improve on terrible resulted in a second album that was worse than terrible?

    It's like first significant movies/series: Tom Cruise / Risky Business; Sean Penn / Fast Times; John Travolta / Welcome Back Kotter.

    None of them have ever improved on that work. Downhill since.

    Yep. GnR, Van Halen, and Led Zeppelin pretty much hit it out of the park with their debut albums.
