Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark

OMD was one of the early electronic bands that fit well alongside the quality of The Human League and Erasure.

Suggested First Purchase/Best Of: The Singles
Suggested First Album: Organization

The Singles (1998) -- This is a band that probably has great albums (I don't know--haven't heard them yet), but the singles are great.  "If You Leave" (from Pretty in Pink) would have been enough to make them cool, but the rest of the songs are of that quality too, and luckily without the radio overkill.  Even for fans of OMD who have the albums, this is a good collection: neat, chronological, and everything you need on one disc.
