Moonflower Plastic is unquestionably Tobin Sprout's greatest album. Hell, it's one of the most immaculate (and immaculately underappreciated) pop albums I can think of. However, you can't go wrong with Tobin's debut either. Carnival Boy was released in 1996, the year he left Guided By Voices for the second time. Needless to say, it's a gem, not least because it is full of songs like "To My Beloved Martha". Infectious indie pop nirvana.
