Almost everything they've put out is worth listening to.

Start with Girls Can Tell, one of my favorite records of all time, or Gimme Fiction, which covers all the bases as far as their sound goes.

I happen to think Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga is one of their best and might be a little more accessible than their earlier albums.

One of my favourites:

Yeah, can't go wrong with that one either. One of their most sunny and upbeat albums, if you're in the mood for that.

Kill the Moonlight and Transference are perfectly good records btw, just don't start out with them.

Start with Transference and then don't listen to anything else.

I prefer Girls Can Tell by a considerable margin over KTM. Never understood the hype on that one.

I think Gimme Fiction is the way to go. Not only does it "cover all the bases" as LM put it, but I think it might be their poppiest.

Music is great, verses are great but I wish the chorus was something other than Daniel snarling the title over and over. And is it just me, or does he sound even rougher/raspier than usual? He has one of my favorite voices in rock and I would be bummed if it's suffering.

Maybe everyone's too busy analyzing the latest murky U2 beach clip to listen to actual music?

I've listened to Do You about a dozen times now and like it a lot. Rent I Pay sounded to me like it would have fit in with Transference (Mystery Zone and Written in Reverse), whereas this reminds me more of Gax5. And having heard at least clips from three more, the opening 5 songs sound killer. This album could become my favorite over Gax5 if the closing songs are as strong as the first 5.
