Can someone help clean this up. Some entries of \"(band name) has a self-titled album\" are all over the place, like in sections labelled \"nearly self-titled\" and so on and so forth.

Any thought of splitting this into two or three types? My proposition:

Type 1: The first album the artist ever made, introducing them under this name (and this name only). Type 2: A subsequent album - usually done after the artist previously put out three or more - signaling a change in lineup, change in style or a rebranding of the artist/outfit. Type 3 (optional): The artist puts out a series of self-titled albums (not necessarily consecutive), done to establish some artsy motif or theme (see: Peter Gabriel, Days Of The New, Weezer, Seal).

Type the word in the image. This goes away if you get known.

How well does it match the trope?
