10 Excellent Solo Albums by Alternative Rock Frontmen

There are plenty of great bands with talented frontmen at the helm. Singers, acting as the “voice” of their musical collectives, often garner more attention than their bandmates – with the notable exception of the occasional demigod virtuoso guitarist taking center stage. Since lead singers are in the limelight to such a degree, it’s only natural for some to release solo albums. Sometimes, there’s friction within the band, and the vocalist simply needs a breather from the group dynamic. Other times, a solo project provides a chance for a singer to play around with different styles or do something his usual cohorts might not be into. Whatever the reasons behind their creation, these breakaway records vary in quality and run the gamut from disappointing to brilliant. We decided to focus on the latter in the above gallery of 10 Excellent Solo Albums by Alternative Rock Frontmen.
