    My eMusic subscription rolls over in a couple days, and I wanted to download some Muslimgauze albums, but I don't know where to start. I know a few people here know a thing or two about him - so what would be the two or three Muslimgauze albums to start with?

    A worthwhile question - there is so much out there it's easy to get boggled. I second frenchbloke's suggestions!

    @Zoetica: Yeah, when I looked at what was available, I knew I had to get some help. Bryn Jones defined prolific.

    Zul'm (1992) -- Very easily digestible and organic-sounding record with a very open sound. Not a bad entry point.
    Coup D'etat / Abu Nidal (1987) -- A little more industrial drum machine presence here, but refrains from being overly harsh/distorted. Even a little dancefloor appeal here.
    Sufiq (1997) -- This was my entry point. A good balance of just about all of his styles, even though it's just an EP.
    Iran (1988) -- His first CD release. Some very extended jams here, but worth the price of admission for the first track alone.

    ...I have about a dozen Muslimgauze releases, and these are the ones I consistently enjoy, though of course he has one of the most ridiculous discographies in the universe, and it's really anyone's guess where the best place to begin is. I generally tend to prefer his more organic stuff to his harsher/electronics-based stuff, but Sufiq is a perfect example of where there is a lot of interesting crossover. Also, I would recommend this disc I have called Hamas Arc, but it's not really a proper release, in that it apparently recycles some tracks from another release and puts them together awkwardly with completely different material... I don't know how the disc compares to the original sources, but it's enjoyable as well.
