Okay, I'm going to throw another post-punk classic at you but one very different from all the other suggestions, and one you could actually like. Orange Juice's Rip It Up. It's fun and poppy, and a lot more conventional than some of the more harsh stuff.
Have you listened to much Talking Heads?

I'll add it. TH I've heard one or two albums, mostly though what they had in the charts, mostly off Little creatures and such. I did like what I heard though. I think I have Remain in light on the list...

Nice one! I look forward to you getting to Remain In Light, one of my favourite albums.

I'd say you're dead to me, but what's the point.

Oh man I hated the Jam when I were a lad. But you know, maybe I was just being a stuck-in-the-mud metalhead, so yeah, ok, I'll give it a go.

I doubt if you'll like them now and I know that album very well and even have it on vinyl, even though now I don't much care for the band.

How about The Cars? The eponymous debut is their "best".

Well I've heard some of the Cars' material, but not all their albums all the way through. I have everything from them but I've only really listened to Heartbeat City, Door to door and the poor and disappointing comeback album Move like this. I loved Ben Orr's solo album though, and did a feature a few years back on Rik Ocasek. Is the debut considered a classic? I'll think about it certainly.
