if you're including an iron and wine album, it's woman king.

Do you think SR is > DL for someone who has never heard them before??

I think he is more likely to like DL.

(DL was on my preliminary list)

Good list Jack, even if I would have chosen Slanted & Enchated for the Pavement album.

Either one is fine. I started with Surfer Rosa and loved it, but Doolittle is cool. SR has the advantage of having the most famous Pixies song ("Where is My Mind")

I think you need at least one of Sufjan/Elliot/Iron and Wine, but probably not more than one.

Any sort of consensus on this? Illinois was on my preliminary list, but I really really love either/or.

SR has the advantage of having one of the top 5 songs of the last 20 years ("Where is My Mind")
