The first Zappa album I ever heard was: 'The Mothers Of Invention:Weasel's Ripped My Flesh' from 1970.
Talk about being thrown in the deep end!!!.
I rather like 'Us & Them' & 'The Mothers Of Prevention' but I think anyone new to Zappa's music should probably listen to:

'Absolutely Free'

Simply because it may have been his finest hour!!!. :D

My tip is to get yourself around two to three hundred dollars and just buy as many as you can find. That's what I did! Now look at me! I'm broke!

Sheik Yerbouti
Joe's Garage acts I-III
Shut Up And Play Yer Guitar (Series)

Plus, as Trendy said, get some visual representation.

But as consensus says: they are all good to great for different reasons.

I like Franks live discs as a good sampler...

Make A Jazz Noise Here is what I recommend my music obsessed buddies as a first one, and they seem to want more Zappa after that....

The Grand Wazoo is another great one, as is Hot Rats.

First five FZ albums you should get, in my opinion:

Burnt Weeny Sandwich
Weasels Ripped My Flesh
One Size Fits All
You Are What You Is
YCDTOSA ll: Helsinki Concert

If these five albums should leave you cold, FZ is not your kind of music, even if that is incomprehensible for us regular FZ fans.

I've been a fan since Freak Out was issued and when people ask which album they should listen to I say "all of 'em".

With all, u are overloaded.

If u only want to know who is Frank i think 10 cds is enough.

Am i right?
