Pleased to Meet Me is their most accessible, so that's probably as good of a starting place as any.

You can't go wrong with Let it Be or Tim either, though.

The early stuff is raw as raw can be (I think Tommy Stinson was 14 when they recorded their first album) Sorry Ma, Forgot To Take Out The Trash

Hootenany is garage punk. Fast and fun.

Then came the holy trinity of Mats albums:
Let It Be
Tim
Pleased To Meet Me

Don't Tell A Soul
All Shook down

were good, not as good a the above 3, but good.

They have a best of, witha pretty good tracklist:

I started with Let it Be, there's really no bad tunes. Screw "best of"s.

I also love some of Paul Westerberg's solo work. I have no idea what made me have the sense to buy 14 Songs back when I was 13 or 14, but I did. Does anyone know if he's playing again? I know he hurt his hand pretty badly a few months back and wasn't able to play at all.

TIM was the album I heard when I was a teenager that turned me on to the Replacements. This older guy brought it to the basketball court where we played pick up games. After games, we'd sit aound, drink our water, gatorade, etc and listen to tunes on someone's jambox. Very seldom would a band grab hold of me, but the 'Mats' did. One of the finest catalogues out there, and the "hits" collection that came out last year had good selections.

I listened to Tim for the first time today...

It is, indeed, an excellent record. So far, I still prefer Let It Be, but Tim has some amazing songs (Left Of The Dial is probably my new favorite Replacements song). Next up, Pleased To Meet Me.

Tim just goes to extremes.

You have the fun "On The Bus" and "Waitress In The Sky", alongside blazing rockers like "Left Of The Dial", "Bastards Of Young", & "Little Mascara."

And it all ends with the saddest song I've ever heard in "Here Comes A Regular."

I'm really digging Let It Be so far. It doesn't hold back and I like that.

In Gary's Got a Boner, Gary indeed does have a boner. I wonder if that relates to Tommy getting his tonsils taken out.

You're in for a good ride in terms of discovery.

They're one of the best bands ever.

If someone called them the best band ever, I wouldn't argue. They have a amazing spirit in their music, even though it's soaked in whiskey, bloody lips, and romantic disappointment

This thread is right next to the Desert Island Prog thread...the irony is painful.
