Images and words. Absolutely! This is where it all begun (with LaBrie on vocals) Best prog metal album ever! Every song is a masterpiece on it and the entirety is just awsome.

what's pron?

EDIT: i googled it, you guys are gross.

Yea, get Images and Words. It has kind of an 80s rock feel to it, which may or may not turn you off, but it's really an incredible album. After that, get Scenes From A Memory.
Train of Thought has a couple of real gems on it, but i wouldn't say it's their best. I'd say Scenes From A Memory to be perfectly honest... Or Images and Words - if just for Another Day and Metropolis Pt 1.
Images and Words or Six Degrees (2 disks makes it awesome..)
