Actually I'd suggest just the opposite. "A Series of Sneaks" never really won me over. It's too rooted in that lo-fi, indie funkiness.
If you liked "Me and the Bean" (which is my favorite track by the band BTW) - then start with "Girls Can Tell." Every song on that album is a winner - pure pop frothiness. "Kill the Moonlight" takes a slightly different approach to pop - opting for spare, unadorned instrumentation, sometimes even just cruising along on human beat-box sounds. It takes a few listens to get into - but its been one of the few albums over the past year to hold my attention for any real stretch of time.
If only I could say the same for the crashing bore that was Beck's "Sea Change."
