You can add me to that list, though liked is the operative term

FAIL.

Also, the Jesus and Mary Chain topped Just Like Honey over and over again, same with Guns & Roses. Welcome to the Jungle is probably my least favorite song on Side One of that album.
I agree with all of this. Jesus and Mary Chain got better and better, I think.

Stone Roses - I think Elephant Stone and Waterfalls are both better songs than I Wanna Be Adored. I Am The Resurrection is close.

I think that says more about that song than it does about their output since
The album is amazing, and between Tunnels, Rebellion and Wake Up, I would pick a different favorite everytime I was asked. But to say they never got better than than track 1 on album 1 would be incorrect regardless.

Just like I'm the only one who actually likes Machina.

Oh well.

I like Machina a lot. But it's like the difference between brilliance and simply very good; it's not even close to Siamese Dream.

Not a bad call.

You could turn the question to bands that never topped album #1 and BRMC would certainly be on that list. Although I still like them.

Tunnels is an interesting choice, but I think Haiti, Rebellion and possibly Power Out are the better choices in Funeral.

Fleet Foxes may be interesting in a few years. White Winter Hymnal (granted, it's #2 in the album) could become their best song (Mykonos being a close second).

White Winter Hymnal is far from my favourite song on that album (I realize this thread is nothing but opinion. just saying)

Either way, I think its a little premature (and downright mean!!! ) to lump them in here

I also love Blue Ridge Mountains, but I think White Winter Hymnal sets the stage for the whole album.
