Yowzers, those are my 4 favorites of his.  I voted On The Corner, with Get Up With It just behind.

I'm Jack Johnson -- heavyweight champion of the world! I'm black! They never let me forget it. I'm black all right; I'll never let them forget it.

In A Silent Way first, because **Spoiler alert** themes reappear in Jack Johnson, which should be bought at the same time as IASW anyway as the first two to pick up. Then Get Up With It.

In a Silent Way is my favorite Miles, so gotta go with it.

Out of these, Get Up With It, but it is only my second favorite Miles. My absolute favorite is Big Fun.

Main reason:

Four great albums (no Big Fun?). Get Up With It for me.

My nod to Jack Johnson was just even up the voting at (currently) five each...guess you'll have to listen to each of them!
 
My advice: start with In a Silent Way and move forward in chronological order. it's the easiest way to make sense of Davis' more radical later stuff (On the Corner)

No Big Fun because he was already in the first poll (along with Bitches Brew).

Get Up With It has the most variety, this album influenced Brian Eno, especially "He Loved Him Madly" "Calypso Frelimo" is a slab of jazz funk.

"Rated X" is a forerunner to drum and bass. even some straight ahead blues rock, and smooth jazz styles are on this.

Haven't listened to these in a while to be quite honest, but they're are all great records, especially from this specific era of Miles. I really like On The Corner - dirty, dirty record - In A Silent Way is another favourite. Probably going to go with IAW - just behind Bitches for my favourite Miles.
