One of my alltime favorite artists. I've bought about half a dozen of his albums. Trout Mask Replica is still his masterpiece as far as I'm concerned...

Start with Safe As Milk (The album) , I hated Trout Mask when I first heard it.
After i`d heard Safe As Milk it made much more sense.

It's an acquired taste. I can see where it would be very hard to like the first time through, if you don't like it by the third time, try listening to some Zappa and Tom Waits to ease your self into Captain Beefheart.
