    I just think it's rare that a compilation actually captures the feel of an artist. Substance does that well, I think Joy Division's Substance offers a similarly strong overview, Neil Young's Decade is a great compilation (with the notable lack of tracks from Time Fades Away). I can't think of too many others.

    I'd say Queens greatest hits falls into the category.

    Tears for Fears - Songs from the Big Chair is a great example of this. Listening only the the radio singles from that album removes the cool instrumentals and structure that connects the songs together and make a cohesive album (it's almost a concept album). The endings from one song seem to go directly into the start of the next song. Head over Heels is such a different song when you listen to it in the context of Broken and Listen and the band becomes more than just two guys who write pop songs. It's shows tremendous talent.

    Please ignore all of these people and listen to Kill The Moonlight by Spoon. Most of their stuff is at least pretty good, but that has no songs worth skipping and is probably the catchiest.

    I'm definitely in the minority re: Spoon, as I think they've gotten better and better with each release.
    9/20 - Crosby, Stills & Nash - Santa Barbara Bowl
    9/21 - Caetano Veloso - Hollywood Bowl
    9/26 - William Basinski - Pasadena Arts Council
    9/28 - Bob Mould - Roxy (?)
    10/01 - King Crimson - Orpheum

    I'm in the same boat, but agree with Patrick on starting with Kill The Moonlight for an introduction to the band.

    Mudhoney honestly has one release you need to listen to: Superfuzz Big Muff + Early Singles. Every other album they released is a play on that same formula. Superfuzz is goddamn fantastic.

    I was going to post something similar to Bmack except I prefer Every Good Boy Deserves Fudge. So there's two albums you can check out.

    Veni Vidi Vicious is the best for sure. If you like it, you will like the other 3 they have. Fun tunes.

    Yeah, Veni Vidi Vicious is the clear place to start. If you enjoy it, check out Your New Favourite Band next, then Tyrannosaurus Hives.

    Or cross your fingers and hope to see them live. That's where they really shone.

    Ironically it was with Queen albums that i first learned that my favorite tracks tended to not be hits, so I would disagree. (And suggest Jazz first, probably.)

    Mysterious Production of Eggs is where I started. If you like the more low-key atmospheric stuff after that try Weather Systems and if you prefer the up-tempo stuff go to Armchair Apocrypha.

    Repeater and/or Red Medicine. Repeater's the stronger album, Red Medicine is more diverse.

    Can someone give me a few Bill Callahan/Smog recs? (looking for older stuff as well as newish). I only have the 2011 and 2009 albums.
