Thanks for all the feedback, everyone. It sounds like almost every album has been recommended by someone, and there's no consensus. It will take a while, but I'll give some of those a try and let you know how it goes.
I started with Washing Machine and can say that I definitely like The Diamond Sea--minus the 15+ minutes of unnecessary noise. The first non-Experimental song I like--yay! Too early to judge the rest of that album as I always need a lot of time to let music fully soak in.
