I guess it depends on how you like your Bjork. More accessible, or weird?
I agree. I'd start with either Debut or Post.

Sticky Fingers
Let It Bleed
Beggar's Banquet

People like Exile On Main Street, but it's not for beginners.

Don't know much about Springsteen, at least not entire albums...

For Waters, at least get Pros And Cons Of Hitch-Hiking. Great plot, and Eric Clapton plays guitar on the whole album.

"Born to Run" (the album) is a classic for a reason: every song kicks major ass. Get that album.

After that, I recommend "The River" and "Magic."




For me, I'm getting into David Bowie, Red Hot Chili Peppers, and Dave Matthews Band. Thoughts?

Ziggy Stardust, by all means. Hunky Dory, Low, they're all good. Station To Station is in my top 10 all-time, but it's not for beginners. Definitely an acquired taste.

David Bowie - A great starting point would be either Ziggy Stardust or Hunky Dory. I only have four albums, but they're both pretty accessible. Hunky Dory has Changes, Oh! You Pretty Things, Life on Mars, Queen Bitch and Ziggy Stardust has Starman, Ziggy Stardust, Suffragette City, Rock 'n' Roll Suicide, and Five Years.

Red Hot Chili Peppers - Depends on whether you want to go for their earlier, funkier stuff or the more recent stuff. Personally, I think By the Way is a great place to start, that's how I got into them. Californication is great, and Blood Sugar, while I don't like it as much, launched them and is kind of a bridge between their older, funkier stuff and their newer work.

Well I was in JB the other day, and I went for Exile, though I woulda have got Beggar if it was there.

Cheers !

Pfft. It bored the crap out of me.

And I thought you were going to be far from civilisation with no Internet?

You also have no music taste.

I took a laptop and managed to find somewhere with some internet while everyone else is asleep.

Download it instead.

It's good for a few listens, but not worth paying full price for.

Yeah, and anything after And Justice For All is a complete waste of time.

You're the one who didn't want Several Species to win Ummagumma.

And cool.

The Narrow Way for the win.

I doubt you'll see me much though.
