I have Treasure and Heaven Or Las Vegas.
still remains my favourite of theirs
Head Over Heels.
Half of it is as good as Treasure.
I would also highly recommend a great compilation called The Pink Opaque which has loads of the really good stuff that came out on eps during the same period as Treasure - including Aikea Guinea which is their absolute peak so far as I am concerned.
Only five quid on Amazon!:
Less accessible and blatantly melodic but still a powerful album.
And as bornin69 said the Treasure-era EPs are among their best work imo
But right now you should buy Blue Bell Knoll if you want a proper studio album or Lullabies to Violaine if you can cope with a compilation spanning the 8 years up to Heaven or Las Vegas. I collected the ep's as they came out from 1985 but this for a newbie must be mind-blowing. 32 tracks, only two of which are on a 'studio' album.
Probably my favourite album of theirs.
But to be honest, you need all of their records. Brilliant band.
