Original album: Warning Shots (2004)

Why the sequel was made: With his major label debut The Greatest Story Never Told stuck on the shelf, Saigon released the independent record, Warning Shots 2, to try and recapture the buzz he had at the beginning of the early 2000s.

Was it as good as the original? No. If you've never heard Saigon's Warning Shots, do yourself a favor and go listen to it. With tracks like the soulful "Stocking Cap" and the creative "Pop Quiz," Saigon was in the zone in 2004. But unfortunately, label politics killed his drive and, by 2009, he was a shell of his former self. That hurt Warning Shots 2, which featured Saigon firing off a bunch of blanks.
