Well, this will get you a few different answers, I'm sure. But I always
go with The Humility of Pain. It's mostly in his moaning vocal delivery
for me, but the guitar produce some pretty high end notes and sounds
rather shrill overall.
But remember, I've only heard 24 of the man's albums. It's reasonable to
suspect one of the remaining 19 will be more difficult. I've heard The
Place is equally, if not more, difficult than tHoP
Some have had Six and Six, but I've honestly thought it was easier to
get into than a lot of his work. It's a lot more atonal than his usual
sound, but I like.

It sure would be interesting, that's for sure. I'd watch.
