Well, I've listened a few songs from them and are cool, specially by the bass lines.
I've been looking for their albums and is very hard to get them (and at reasonable price) here in my country. I have the opportunity to buy their first one "Suck On This". Is it worth buying this album or I should keep looking for other albums and which one ?
 
Thanks, Barla. Thumbs Up

I would try to get ahold of Sailing the Seas of Cheese,an excellent Primus album to start with.

Sailing the Seas of Cheese.   If you want something darker and less accessible I recommend Pork Soda.

Suck on This is an interesting live album that has songs that would appear on many future Primus studio albums...

John the Fisherman, Groundhog's Day, Harold of the Rocks, Pudding Time, and Frizzle Fry would end up on the Frizzle Fry album. Tommy the Cat would wind up on Sailing the Seas of Cheese. Pressman would end up on Pork Soda. And The Heckler would wind up at the end of Coattails of a Dead Man on Antipop. Jellikit is the only song on that album that wouldn't appear on future ones.

Anyway, Suck on This is a good album, but it's not the best album to start with Primus. I'd recommend Frizzle Fry or Sailing the Seas of Cheese.

I recently got that when I was in London (at a very cheap price!), and I've listened to it twice so far. Good album indeed, though a bit samey in places - I think repeated listens are needed in order to appreciate it fully. However, "Fish On" is a fantastic track, IMHO (you can find it in MP3 format here on PA).
