Can anyone recommend one of their albums for a first timer?

Happy Songs for Happy People (not sure if that is right)

I'm not a fan of Mr. Beast.  I think their latest two are their best:
The Hawk is Howling
Hardcore Will Never Die, But You Will.

Happy Songs... was my first (I think!), but its fairly atypical.

Of course Young Team has two of their best songs, "Like Herod" and "Mogwai Fear Satan".

Young Team and Happy Songs For Happy People are pretty much their most quintessential and most celebrated albums out of their discography. One of their newer releases is very good too call Hardcore Will Never Die But You Will.

The newest one, Hardcore, would probably be a good start but it is a bit different from their earlier stuff.
