Any bands that you own only ONE of their many CDs?

I am going through the process of thinning out the CD collection, and it struck me that I seemed to have some CDs simply because I liked the artist.

Today's example was Sunny Day Real Estate. I love Diary, but I really didn't care for the rest of their albums.

Does anyone just own ONE of an artist's many albums because it's good (where the others aren't so much)?

You didn't like the "pink album"? To me that is their best work. I love Diary also, but don't care for anything other than those two albums.

As for one albums, this might be difficult. Only one I can think of off the top of my head is Tiamat - Wildhoney. I am sure there are others in my collection, but that is the only one I can think of at this moment.

Eric Clapton - To be honest, I've never cared for him. I was in Borders the other day, and they were playing Me & Mr. Johnson. I really liked it and picked it up.

The Band - Only own Rock of Ages (their live disc). I do own the Last Waltz on DVD though.

The Beach Boys - Only own Pet Sounds, but plan on buying Smile when it's finally released.

Bright Eyes - Only own Lifted

Elvis Costello - Only own his double disc greatest hits.

Boss Hog - Only own their self-titled album.

The Mekons - Only own Me.

James - Only own Laid.

Outkast - Only own Speakerboxxx/The Love Below.

Bob Mould - The only thing I own is Sugar's File Under Easy Listening.

Ween - only own Chocolate & Cheese.

Pearl Jam - 10 is the only one that comes to mind.

Although I own several albums, the only Beatles CD I have that ever gets played is Abbey Road. Does that count?

Sigur Ros: I'm sort of obsessed with their second album (Aegibsdigiu Bybdbawiuefbwhatever) but don't own anything else by them. I've, uh, acquired the other ones through other means, though.

Just so people are sure...I'm talking about bands where you really like ONE of their albums but you think the rest are garbage.
