Sixto Rodriguez:   1970: Cold Fact  1971:  Coming From Reality            

This is easy for me: The Stone Roses.   The eponymous first album was one of the great albums of all time and a defining record for the Madchester/Rave generation in the UK in the lates 80s/

One of my favourites from the 80's:

Another Great Band who put out 2 fine Albums before disbanding. Put out a 3rd Album after reforming.

 

 

 

pity we are not face to face in a pub.     but feel free to continue the disrespect.

I think I've got one, and definitely right up there among my favourite bands.

To preempt any objections: "Third (reissued in 1985 as Third/Sister Lovers[) is the third album by American rock band Big Star. Sessions started at Ardent Studios in September 1974. Though Ardent created promotional, white-label test pressings for the record in 1975, a combination of financial issues, the uncommercial sound of the record, and lack of interest from singer Alex Chilton and drummer Jody Stephens in continuing the project prevented the album from ever being properly finished or released at the time of its recording. It was eventually released in 1978 by PVC Records."

And I'm not counting the Posies version of the band after Chris Bell died.

Hi All,

 

The Avalanches: Since I Left You and Wildflower, there is a rumoured 3rd album, which may or may not be released.

Paul Kelly & The Coloured Girls; Gossip and Under the Sun.  Saw them in Adelaide in 1987, possibly at the Hindley, can't really remember now, but he did sing Adelaide & got a good reception from the crowd.

I know it's early days for her and this will probably be disqualified in the near future, but I'd rate Lorde pretty highly in this list too.

I certainly hope she is not eligible for this list in 12 months.   Otherwise  that would have meant she joined the 27 club, well before 27.

Risking the Wrath of Khan here but one group that I got into for a while qualifies, Telepopmusic had Genetic World and Angel Milk. Both good albums with millions of e.p.'s and remixes and compilations and promo's etc. but only two (I hope) bone fide albums.

Here's another, Mattafix, Signs of a Struggle and Rhythm and Hymns. Thoughtful, soulful electronic/hip-hop duo who deserved more acclaim than they received, or maybe not.signs.jpg.3d85fd4604938e089dd61eeff18747fa.jpg  Rythm.jpg.a5380892d4d87102856c60bc3352298d.jpg

Cool thread.  I honestly didn’t realise some of these artists only released two albums.

 

I’m gonna inject something metal in honour of the OP and go with Devin Townsend Band.  Noting that the OP is tough on meeting the criteria, I’ll clarify that Devy released his solo ambient weirdness album Devlab in between these two masterpieces, but that was released as a solo album.

The Sex Pistols only produced one studio album, look at the influence they had. On an influence per album count, probably more than the Beatles.

Amy Winehouse.

The Fugees

Joy Division.

 

None of these are favourites, but notables just the same.

The eponymous first album was one of the great albums of all time and a defining record for the Madchester/Rave generation in the UK in the lates 80s/early 90s.

 

The second album, "The Second Coming" was less of a classic and is quite divisive as seen here

I was just working my way through the thread and was intending to add the Stone Roses as well - you beat me to it!

Very true!!.     Great selection.  I have most of Ian Brown's solo stuff.   

   Great band.

Neko Case and her Boyfriends

 

71D974D6-1213-449E-B1CB-0629A610D082.jpeg.7daeef02ee80325aa628124750de7595.jpeg2ABD8832-26CB-41D4-B704-A402ADA1AD81.jpeg.e8b2e4ad0845826383d4730460d6085d.jpeg

 

The Virginian (1997) is a country album, essentially. It’s good in as much as it’s a showcase for Neko’s voice but the songs are mostly pretty forgettable.

 

Furnace Room Lullaby (2000) is an amazing album. It’s still country but with a much more gothic/noir flavour and it set the tone for her honest-to-goodness solo stuff to grow and evolve into some of the most interesting modern pop songwriting of the last ten years

No.  They went and joined YES.

From a UK perspective I believe Westworld can count 😉

And pushing the boundaries further then Adam and the Ants can count!  Yes they had three albums but Malcolm McLaren stole all the Ants to form Bow Wow Wow so Ant recruited Perroni and basically formed a new band and sound..... talk about a blessing in disguise for Ant

 

You are welcome to disagree..... especially with my taste in music but being born in the early 70's these were two pop bands I grew up with in the UK! 😉

Broken bells. I’m not sure if they are still going but only released  2 studio albums to date and good ones too. 
 

Yazoo

By no means a favourite, or even a band I particularly like, but they only released 2 studio albums.

Nice one @metal beat & @Art Watson - that got me thinking as this was a hard thread to add too...do posthumous records count? Notorious's 2nd was in the bag so hence he was partying (but on the wrong side of town), but Eazy-E's was a year later...

 

Eazy-Duz-It blew my mind as a white teenager going to a private high school.

Afraid not, only when they were in the land of the living. 

  Otherwise,  Hendrix would have like 30 albums 😁
