(honorable mentions: Six and Six, White Box Requiem,
Twelfth Apostle)

3 Weirdest Albums:

Telegraph Melts
Modern Dances

3 albums that best approximate what one would imagine
to be the sound of souls in hell:

Six and Six
I Threw You Away
The Gone Wait

(honorable mentions: any of the last five albums,
really, plus some songs on Lost Cause like "God Came
Between Us")

3 most punk rock albums:

Interstellar Discussion
The Rocks Crumble
Telegraph Melts

(plus "the Electric End" from Lost Cause)

3 albums that, taken together, give an almost complete
display of Jandek's many styles up to 1988:

On the Way
Follow Your Footsteps
Interstellar Discussion

my 3 favorite albums:

Blue Corpse 
You Walk Alone
Chair Beside a Window.

Of course, "Ready for the House" needs to be one of
your purchases. It's the alpha.
