In 2013, the music magazine Rolling Stone compiled the ranking of the 100 best debut albums. This is the methodology: some albums were excluded if the artist then accomplished even greater feats, while debut albums with incredible success were highlighted that were subsequently no longer equaled by their artists.
Also excluded from the ranking are debut albums by solo artists by musicians who were already known in band (e.g. John Lennon). Here are the top ten positions.
