Whoa Nelly by Nelly Furtado is probably my favourite debut album ever. It was so fresh and inspired and it was really set apart from typical teen pop acts of the time.

I need to acknowledge Tidal by Fiona Apple. A stunning debut. 

Also This Fire by Paula Cole. The flow and production on that record is flawless.

Yes to Andy Gibb! Love "Flowing Rivers". A great and sort of forgotten album it seems.

Good list. I agree with most if it (of course I would have had Janet on mines).

That's right. I completely forgot about Harbinger. 

I almost put Jagged Little Pill in my list before I remembered she had some pop albums out prior to going angst-y alt rock 90's chick.
