Music's way of straddling the line between NoTitle and InCaseYouForgotWhoWroteIt, a self-titled (or "s/t", or "eponymous") album is one that's named after the artist(s) who created it. Often used for debut albums or albums that mark a change in an artist's sound or lineup.

TheOtherWiki has a [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_eponymous_albums long list of strictly eponymous albums]], which won't be repeated here for brevity's sake -- the examples below are limited to unusual cases, as delineated in each section.

[[folder:Repeated Artist Instances]]
* Roberto Carlos has released 58 albums in a career spanning five decades; 35 of them are titled simply ''Roberto Carlos''.
* Bachman-Turner Overdrive's first two albums, ''Bachman-Turner Overdrive'' and ''Bachman-Turner Overdrive II''. Eleven years later, the band released ''another'' album titled ''Bachman-Turner Overdrive'', without a number.
* TheBeachBoys' self-titled album "The Beach Boys" from 1985. Generally known as the "'85 Album" by fans.
* Music/TheBeatles' self-titled album, almost universally known as the White Album. The compilations released in the 1970s, ''The Beatles: 1962-1966'' and ''The Beatles: 1967-1970'', are usually referred to as the Red Album and the Blue Album.
* Music/TheRollingStones' debut UK album in 1964 is their self-titled album. Their EP that predates their debut album is also called "The Rolling Stones". Their self-titled debut album was followed by "The Rolling Stones No.2".
* Big Bad Voodoo Daddy's first album is self-titled and self-released. Their third album, released after they were picked up by Interscope, is officially titled "Americana Deluxe" per the liner notes, but since the only text on the front cover is the band's name it's often thought to be self-titled as well. (To make matters even more confusing, both the self-titled album and Americana Deluxe contain many of the same songs.)
* BillyTalent's ''Billy Talent I'', ''Billy Talent II'', and ''Billy Talent III''.
* DavidBowie has two different self-titled albums; the first is virtually forgotten, and the second is better known by its rerelease title, "Space Oddity." He also has two self-titled albums named after his hard rock band, Tin Machine. ''And'' a self-titled song, as seen below.
* Brave Belt's ''Brave Belt'' and ''Brave Belt II''. ''Brave Belt III'' turned into the aforementioned Bachman-Turner Overdrive debut.
* Hardcore punk and alternative rock band The Bronx have released four albums under that name, each of which has been titled ''The Bronx''. Their two albums named ''Mariachi el Bronx'' seem like an exception, but the name given for the artist on this release is, in fact, Mariachi el Bronx, the band's mariachi punk alter ego.
* CheapTrick's 1977 debut ''Cheap Trick'' and the band's 1997 thirteenth album of the same name.
* The entirety of Music/{{Chicago}}'s discography, with only a few exceptions, in the form of ''Chicago'' and a Roman numeral. (''The Chicago Transit Authority'', Chicago's debut, was also a self-titled release prior to a change of name due to legal trouble with the actual CTA.)
* DuranDuran released two self-titled albums, one in 1981 and another in 1993. The second is often referred to as ''The Wedding Album'' due to its wedding-themed cover art.
* PeterGabriel's first four albums, all literally titled ''Peter Gabriel'' -- though due to ExecutiveMeddling, the fourth was released in the U.S. as ''Security''. The first three are often listed as "Car," "Scratch," and "Melt," after their album covers.
* TheHollies released an album called ''Hollies'' in 1964, and then another with that title in 1974 (after reuniting with original lead singer Allan Clarke). Some sources list the second album as ''Hollies '74'' to avoid confusion, but its official title is simply ''Hollies''.
* Music/LedZeppelin's first three albums, titled ''Led Zeppelin'', ''Led Zeppelin II'', and ''Led Zeppelin III''. The album usually referred to as ''Led Zeppelin IV'' or ''Zoso'' (after Jimmy Page's sleeve symbol) actually has NoTitle given on its sleeve.
* CountryMusic band The Mavericks released two self-titled albums. One was their first; the other, their last until a 2012 reunion.
* [[Music/PaulMcCartney Paul [=McCartney=]]] titled his first solo album ''[=McCartney=]'' and a solo album released in 1980 ''[=McCartney=] II.''
* TimMcGraw's first album was self-titled. He later released an effectively self-titled album in 2001: ''Tim [=McGraw=] and the Dancehall Doctors.''
* Music/{{Queen}}'s first two albums, ''Queen'' and ''Queen II''.
* Diana Ross has two solo albums named ''Diana Ross'', one released in 1970 (and retitled ''Ain't No Mountain High Enough'' when that single became a hit) and one released in 1976. Also the artwork for one of her nearly-eponymous albums ''Ross'' (1978) has ''Diana Ross'' on the front.
* Kenji "Julie" Sawada released two albums called "Julie" and "Julie II," then five more (three of which were live) called "Julie (number) (subtitle)," followed by "Jewel Julie 追憶" before he finally started using proper titles.
* Seal released two consecutive albums named ''Seal'' (the second is often called ''Seal II'', since the fourth is ''Seal IV'').
* Played for laughs by Ten Masked Men (hey, they are a death metal group that does covers of pop songs), who inject a Star Wars theme: ''Ten Masked Men'', ''Ten Masked Men Strike Back'', ''Return of the Ten Masked Men'' and ''The Phanten Masked Menace''.
* Traveling Wilburys, as ''Vol. 1'' and ''Vol. 3''. [[UnInstallment There is no]] ''Vol. 2'' -- their second album was intentionally mistitled.
** Put down to 'George [Harrison] being George'.
* The Music/VelvetUnderground, both with and without Nico. A posthumous album of unreleased studio material was titled ''VU''.
* Music/{{Weezer}}'s color albums ("blue", "green", and "red").
* {{Starflyer 59}}'s first two albums were officially self-titled, but almost universally referred to as ''Silver'' and ''Gold'' (after the color of each album's [[MinimalisticCoverArt monochromatic cover]])--ten years later, these nicknames were used for the rereleased versions.
* Music/KillswitchEngage's debut album and their latest as of 2010, both featuring a different vocalist.
* Music/CrystalCastles' 2008 debut LP and 2010 sophomore album (dubbed ''Crystal Castles II'' by fans).
* DoctorSteel's albums ''Dr. Steel'', ''[[NumberedSequels Dr. Steel II]]: [[ElectricBoogaloo Eclectic Boogaloo]]'', ''The Dr. Steel Collection'' and the ''Dr. Steel Read-A-Long''. (Also extends to his video series, ''The Dr. Steel Show''. And his songs, ''Dr. Steel'' and ''The Dr. Steel Show''.)
* The Spits, a punk band, have released four full-length [=LPs=] all entitled "The Spits" (although the fourth one is unofficially titled "Volume 4"). One theory says that they're all one album that they just can't stop writing.
* FranzFerdinand ''planned'' to do this, with each album being distinguished by its cover (especially the colour schemes) rather than its name. However, when the time came to actually title the second album, they ended up deciding that ''You Could Have It So Much Better'' was...well...so much better. On the other hand, ''YCHISMB'' doesn't have the title of the album anywhere on the cover; instead, it has Alexander Rodchenko's famous photo of Lilya Brik with the band name written on it.
* Music/FleetwoodMac had two eponymous albums, one in 1968 (the true debut album) and one in 1975 (the first album with Lindsey Buckingham and Music/StevieNicks).
* Music/{{Kraftwerk}}'s first album was self-titled, and its second album was simply titled ''Kraftwerk 2'' (with [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:K2-D-front.jpg artwork]] nearly identical to the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:K1-D-front.jpg first]]).
* Tokyo Blade's debut album and one of their compilations were self-titled. Their fourth album ''Ain't Misbehavin''' was reissued as a self-titled album at one point .
* Music/RedHousePainters released two ''in the same year''. The two albums were later retitled based on their artwork (''Rollercoaster'' and ''Bridge''). This is one of those few times the band was actually deliberately trying to confuse people.
* Leatherwolf's debut EP and first two albums were all self-titled. The EP and the first album even shared the same cover art.
* Music/VanHalen has ''Van Halen'', ''Van Halen II'' and ''Van Halen III'' (which is fact their ''eleventh'', but marks the third formation/singer).
* Killing Joke has two self-titled albums: Their 1980 debut and a 2003 album.
* After several nearly-eponymous albums including Earth Vs The Wildhearts and The Wildhearts Must Be Destroyed, their 2007 self-titled album was their fifth or sixth (depending how you count during 1994-96), but marked a reformation, a new line-up and a partial return towards what most fans regard as their classic sound.
* Contrarian indie band RoC's debut was self-titled; they reportedly wanted their second album (and major-label debut) to be self-titled as well, but when this was refused, they named it after their record label instead, Virgin.
* ''Music/{{Orbital}}'''s debut was named ''Orbital'', and its followup was named ''Orbital 2''. They're generally referred to instead as ''Green Album'' and ''Brown Album'', respectively.
* Days Of The New have three albums, all of which are self-titled. Fans usually differentiate the albums by the color of the disc itself (Yellow, Green, and Red) or by release order (I, II, and III). Their long-awaited fourth album is going to break the pattern by only being ''nearly''-eponymous: the title has been announced as ''Days of the New Presents Tree Colors''.
* Thalía has three self-titled albums: her 1990 debut, then two consecutive albums in 2002 and 2003. The 2003 album is commonly known as ''The English Album'' since it was her only LP predominantly in English.

* Eric Carmen has two of these: The first one, released in 1975 and the last one, in 1984 (at least for sixteen years, until he released a new studio album in 2000). Both are titled simply "Eric Carmen".
* [[Music/CarlosSantana Santana]]'s first and third albums are both named ''Santana''; the latter is often referred to as ''Santana III'' or just ''III'' to differentiate.
* JimmyEatWorld briefly had two self-titled releases: The first was a 1998 self-titled EP, and the second was a 2001 album that ended up temporarily becoming self-titled when its original title, ''Bleed American'', was considered TooSoon after September 11th. After enough time passed, ''Bleed American'' went back to its original title.
* Collective Soul's first album was self-titled, ten years later they released another self-titled album (although the latter is usually known as "Rabbit" due to the [[ShapedLikeItself rabbit on the cover]]).
* Music/KeithUrban has two: a rare self-titled album released only in his native Australia in 1991, and his first solo American album in 1999. In between, he was one-third of a trio called The Ranch, who put out an album in the US in 1997; after Urban became popular, the Ranch album was re-issued in 2004 as ''Keith Urban in The Ranch''.
* BritneySpears' third album is titled "Britney", and her 8th album is titled "Britney Jean" (her full maiden name is Britney Jean Spears).
* Music/{{Robyn}} Has both "Robyn Is Here" and "Robyn". "Robyn Is Here" in particular is a nearly-eponymous album with a self-titled nearly-eponymous song also called "Robyn Is Here".
* Music/ThrowingMuses have two, their 1986 debut ''Throwing Muses'' and their 2003 regroup album ''Throwing Muses''.

* Wavves have one self-titled album and one album that's so "nearly-eponymous" that it might as well be self-titled: the debut is ''Wavves'', while the second album is ''Wavvves'' (yes, with three v's this time). To further the confusion, both albums have {{Textless Album Cover}}s with different pictures of the same kid skateboarding in a backyard.
* {{Sparks}}' ''Introducing Sparks''. Which, despite the title, was their seventh album.

* "Carolina Rain", etc., etc.

* "Living In A Box".
* "Music/{{Motorhead}}".
* For a particularly hellish example, "The Good, The Bad, And The Queen". According to the band's frontman, [[Music/{{Blur}} Damon]] [[{{Gorillaz}} Albarn]], the band was [[NoTitle nameless]] and ''TGTB&TQ'' was just the title of the album, but everyone ended up calling the band by the album's name for the sake of sanity.

* ''Series/BigTimeRush'', although technically the album is titled BTR.

* Music/{{The 1975}}.
* Before Green Day was Green Day, they were Sweet Children. Somehow it's become a bit debatable when it was recorded and released, but they do have an EP called Sweet Children with a song called Sweet Children. It was released under the name Green Day, but it may have been recorded when they were still called Sweet Children. Even still, on one of their other first few EPs they have a song called Green Day.
* Music/BodyCount, ''Body Count'', "Body Count". The self-titled album also featured two more songs with the band's name in their titles, "Body Count's in the House" and "Body Count Anthem".
