I would recommend Rain Dogs,then Swordfishtrombones,but I'm old school.Not as old school as Mr. Waits,tho.Does everyone here realise that he wrote one of The Eagles first hits?(Ol' 55)Or that Bruce Springsteen was highly influenced by him and you can hear it on his first album?
Oh and I would direct you to this post:

Rain Dogs is where I started. I don't regret it. If you can't dig Rain Dogs or Swordfishtrombones, you might be in trouble.

Excellent. I almost had forgotten how much I love that thread.
