Career Saving Albums
Warner Brothers, Geffen, Capitol, Casablanca, Columbia, Epic

Last week we told you about records that nearly killed the careers of some of rock’s biggest artists, but we’re starting this year off in a more positive light, by celebrating 5 Albums That Saved a Band’s Career.

These stories range from bands like Aerosmith who lost everything and were forced to make drastic changes to get it back, to artists such as Kiss and Bruce Springsteen, who nearly ran out of chances before breaking through to a mass audience.

As these career-saving albums demonstrate, if you’ve got talent and dedication there’s always hope for big success. So let’s get stated on the road to redemption, shall we?
