Where to begin with the Flaming Lips?

Hello all,

I'm a new fan of the Flaming Lips and I was wondering if you all had any suggestions for the best place to start with their discography?

"Clouds Taste Metallic"

We decided to leave the planet. It seemed like a good idea at the time. We left right after breakfast; we wanted to be first in line. Jan 13, 2013 - 11:06am

I started with "The Day Andy Gibb Died".
The Soft Bulletin would be a good album to initiate yourself, but I think watching Fearless Freaks (It's on Netflix) would be the best way to learn about them.

Thanks for the ticket, Wayne! Jan 27, 2013 - 11:17am

I started the day Yoshimi came out and the day after I got every other record they had. Yoshimi was a life changing event for me. Loved the lips ever since.

You and me were never meant to be part of the future. Jan 30, 2013 - 6:32pm

Clouds Taste Metallic and Embryonic are my favorites. Clouds Taste Metallic is probably a better one to start with though.
