Your Favourite Sophomore Albums (that eclipsed their debut)?

Discussion in 'Comeback corner' started by bonnieetclyde, Oct 24, 2020.

  1. Everyone loves a debut but what about when your favourite artist or group has to follow up with their 2nd record.

    What are some of your favourite sophomore albums that eclipsed their debut..?
  2. Pink's Missundazstood is one of the most famous examples.
  3. Spice Girls (only just)
    Destiny's Child
    Girls Aloud
    Atomic Kitten
  4. Transvision Vamp’s ‘Velveteen’.
  5. Duran duran - Rio
  6. Yes, Spiceworld has that added extra magic about it compared to the debut. But just as you rightly said.

  10. I'm shocked there's so many posts and no one mentioned Future Nostalgia!

  11. You can't say it totally eclipsed self-titled debut.
  12. Rachel Stevens is the obvious winner here! And yes, also TLC.

    I can see why people would bring up Siobhan Donaghy, but I don’t think Ghosts totally eclipsed Revolution In Me. It’s more accessible, but not necessarily the superior album.

    It’s inevitable that people are going to say Lorde (I’m surprised no one has mentioned her yet!), but I personally prefer Pure Heroine.

  19. Not to my ears.

    Hey Now, Cast No Shadow, Shes Electric and Morning Glory could've all been hit singles.
  20. As could Rock n roll star, Colombia and Up in the sky!
