Default Greatest Debut Album Ever ?

Thinking about this the other night, I have my answer already but I will save it for later.

Strictly considering debut albums only, and ignoring the rest of the artist or groups later body of work - what artist and album do you consider to be the greatest, and why ?

Don't name an album that isn't a debut, later albums don't count, neither do demos or unreleased bootlegs - debut albums on a non-private label only.

Weezer, the blue album. Classic in that Beach Boys way, but perfect when it came out and you can still listen to it and find relevance. A definate Classic.

Dire Straits (eponymous). I don't see how you can debut with a better album than that one.

Beck, Mellow Gold was the beginning of an amazing career. Odelay is pretty awesome too. So is Sea Change and Guero and the latest album, Modern Guilt. The guy has evolved in so many ways.

Nine Inch Nails, Pretty Hate Machine started an amazing revolution of industrial/electronic/rock stuff that spread throughout the nineties.

Coldplay, Parachutes. I mean, come on...where would we be now without the crying face of Gwyneth Paltrows husband.

Led Zepplin I (I am by NO means a Zep fan, but this first album is an exception !)
The Doors
Stevie Ray Vaughan - Texas Flood (Love Struck Baby, Pride And Joy, and Texas Flood opening up that album !)

Comercially: Boston. Fastest selling debut album for any American group. Only took it two months to earn a Gold Record and another month to reach Platinum. Three Top 40 hits. All eight songs on the album still receive regular airplay. It has continued to sell very well, accumulating 9 million in sales by the ten-year anniversary in 1986, reaching Diamond in 1990 and 17x platinum in 2003.

Artistically: Led Zeppelin. It has everything - brutal rock, power ballads, blues-rock, folk-rock. It really never gets old. A timeless classic, and I'm not a huge Zep fan, either.

Historically: Please Please Me - The Beatles. It changed R&R forever and spawned the blueprint for future R&R bands; write your own hits and play your own instruments.

I might also have to throw out Michael Jackson Off The Wall on this one too. Not his most successful album, but so very different from the Jackson Five that when it came out you knew something awesome was coming. Then he made Thriller and the rest is history...until HIStory came out and was not so good. By the way, who get's told by Paul McCartney to keep the rights to your songs and then goes out and buys all of the rights to the Beatles.
