I would start with Images and Words, then maybe Awake or Train Of Thought if you prefer the more "metally" stuff that they do.

it has a really good distortion and clean sound a little to much hum in the background but i guess thats why they call them humbuckers"

The Downward Spiral is a brilliant album, but it isn't really a guitar-based album?

And the guitar work on Follow The Leader wasn't exactly inspiring......

Joe Satriani - Surfing with the Alien
I remember listening to this on tape in year 9 when a mate brought it to school - my vision of the sounds that could be achieved from a guitar was forever changed. Satch Boogie is one of the top songs to learn as a guitarist, period.....

I know someone is going to flame me for this but F OFF.

Killswitch Engage - The End Of Heartache

When the first riff in the song the end of heartache kicks in and it just grabs you and smashes you in the face with its awesomeness for inspiration for one lick that gets you right from the start.

And now so that nobody can say that I'm a tool or poser I will take out some of the stuff thats more approved.

Joe Satriani - Surfing with Aliens (both the song itself and Satch Boogie just have this special something that gives you the chills)
Paul Gilbert - Get out of Yard

Also for great starting of a record or song look at:
Dimmu Borgir - The Serpentine Offering
As I Lay Dying - Seperation & Nothing Left (the songs start of An Ocean Between Us)
Heaven Shall Burn - Awoken & Endzeit (kick of the album Iconoclast)

Killswitch is better than either of them. Paul Gilbert is just impressively soulless and boring, Satriani is cheesy crap.

Flame at will.

The follwing albums don't all fall into the TS's categories, but for me these albums have proved to be very inspirational. This is because they show that even simple songs and structures can create some amazing music.

3. My Aim is True - Elvis Costello
4. Sticky Fingers - the Rolling Stones
