The first, self-titled album is good, but not for everyone... Jumbo is also good (maybe not as good as the debut), but more song-oriented. But the one I'd really suggest is Ballerman, which I think was their second. It's a double, and the prime attraction is the cosmic 'Solar Music' which is spread over sides 3 & 4. Also there's 'Solar Music Live' which is all just live versions of that track; shamefully I haven't heard that one yet. Ballerman doesn't seem to be available on CD, though, a pretty massive oversight... But, it's not all that rare on vinyl. You should be able to get their debut and Solar Music Live on CD without too much difficulty.
Beware Rockpommel's Land, which some prog heads will tell you is their masterpiece or something... it's a concept album that's pretty lame compared to the earlier stuff, much more of a regular dull symphonic prog thing like Yes & Genesis at their worst.
