Best / weakest debut follow up albums

Sorry if we already had this thread - I remember the "that important 3rd album" thread a while back.

Isn't the 2nd album just as important? To follow something promising (that you have written material for often over a long period of time) with something that lives up/surpases expectations and often with material written over a shorter space of time and under pressure, still being relatively new in the game.

Anyway, among 2nd albums being both great and of great career importance I'd mention:

Honeymoon Suite - The Big Prize (what a classic!)

Europe - Wings of tomorrow


Examples of 2nd albums that, to me, did not live up to the above:

Bon Jovi - 7800 Fahrenheit

Van Halen - II (well I was very young and didn't hear those early albums until much later..)


Your thoughts?

Cheers
