    @dr_bun I agree. I just picked it up thanks to JamesHippieKid's recommendation and I'm blown away.

    V : Not that I'm aware of, but I'd love to see that. I'm not that really well versed, there is a bit of a discussion below, but the albums he did for Ralph Records are probably his most tonal/accessible. I want someone to put together a flow chart now, that would be awesome.

    Yeah, True.. I like all of his work but Cheap At Half The Price, Gravity and Speechless are his best because of the mix of pop and experimental influences. Step Across The Border and The Technology of Tears are also great albums that are all over the place.

    I don't know if he has a consistently 'tuneful' album in any standard sense, even his "poppier" stuff tends to get pretty weird and atonal. I'd recommend checking out some of the Skeleton Crew material, a lot of their tunes are really poppy in a bizarre sort of way.

    Gravity is also more 'tuneful' as well.

    V That would be Cheap At Half The Price, I suppose.
