Maybe the Retrospect is the way to go with the Massacre because that's the only release I was exposed to and other than that standout (an admittingly great song) I didn't find anything more memorable on it...was it a lesser release from them in your opinion?
Yeah, most of their albumns are uneven (much like Guided By Voices) in part because Newcombe writes songs at such a fast rate and doesn't bother to edit out the bad ideas. Taken as a whole, however, the work is remarkable. The retrospective probably is the best way to go for a beginner, but the three albumns they put out in '96 (Their Satanic Majesties Second Request
, Take It From The Man!
, and Thank God For Mental Illness
) are all excellent releases, IMHO. Strung Out From Heaven
definately wasn't a good place to start. Go with the retrospect to start, and if you're impressed enough (I can't imagine you wouldn't be) go with Take It From The Man!
