You never know, of course, but I wouldn't be surprised if all the attention and hype and success that Arctic Monkeys' debut received turned out to be a curse in the long run. I wasn't really around at the time but I'd think that Boy got nowhere near the same amount of exposure.

Silverchair definitely had that problem of too much success too early. Maybe not so much on the home turf, but outside of Australia they still seem to be frozen in many people's memories as a pack of grungy kids.

I could never really get into OK Computer, though I do love some individual songs.
