Just remember one thing: Robert Fripp is considered the King of Prog here, so don't piss him off. Clap

There are still some gaps in my Beefheart knowledge (not picked up Strictly Personal, Clear Spot or Mirror Man yet) so this list is biased towards the albums I'm most familiar with.

Bat Chain Puller
Electricity
Ice Cream For Crow
The Past Sure is Tense
Run Paint Run Run
The Floppy Boot Stomp
Suction Prints
The Dust Blows Forward n' The Dust Blows Back
Hot Head
Hair Pie Bake 2

I like everything I've heard from the good captain but Sugar and Spikes, Ant Man Bee and Nowadays a Woman's Gotta Hit a Man really stand out to me

Electricity
Ella Guru
Moonlight on Vermont
Lick My Decals Off, Baby
Click Clack
Big Eyed Beans from Venus
Lo Yo Yo Stuff
Click Clack
Nowadays A Woman's Gotta Hit A Man
Bat Chain Puller
Can you tell me where we're headin'?
Lincoln County Road or Armageddon.

But you must.
Over land and under ashes
In the sunlight, see - it flashes
Find a fly and eat his eye
But don't believe in me
Don't believe in me
Don't believe in me

Big Eyed Beans still sends shivers. It is so out there, it rocks really hard, it is free association and expresses a kind of liberation from reality as we know it.
