    I started with the self-titled album, so I guess I'd recommend that. It's pretty evocative and varied, within the band's remit at least. It rocks out and chills out by turns.

    hey dude, i had a pretty hard time with mine too, lol. it took me like an hour of changing things around.
    BUT...my ulterior motive for making this thread is to find new music from intelligent people, and it's working.
    Currently checking out Unwound.

    And just as i suspected, our musical tastes are pretty fucking eclectic.

    Gary Numan
    Manson
    Queens of the Stone Age
    Rob Zombie/White Zombie
    Korn
    Filter
    Alice in Chains

    Smashing Pumpkins and Dope are close. Hard to pick after the first 10 because everything else I kind of like the same.

    Not about Buckley, but I can't believe I left Leonard Cohen off my list!!

    If this question was for me the answer is yes! I like Angel Dust by FNM and a few singles off other albums but As a whole Tomahawk is just great. The Native American influenced album takes a certain mood to appreciate but the other 3 and the M.E.A.T. Single are just awesome from start to finish!

    Hahaha she's got good taste!
    I love Deadsy ever since I heard their first EP when Jay Gordon of Orgy was playing bass in the band
    He tried to copy the Deadsy sound with Orgy, but with more of a pop angle.
    Commencement is a great album and took forever for a proper release.
    I remember having that album for years before it finally got released by Korn's label Elementree
    Another cool band on Korn's label was Videodrone.
    and I quite enjoyed Deadsy's follow up Phantasmogore.
