Always been a very casual listener of the group but always adored what I heard without ever following it up. Would anybody care to recommend some albums to start with, ultimate Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds material, if you will?

Their debut From Her To Eternity if you want to hear a superb post-punk album, The Boatman's Call if you want to hear a superb melancholy piano driven album.

For me, as much as I love his discography, it's all about Abattoir Blues/The Lyre of Orpheus. What an awesome body of work.

Absolutely can't wait. One of my all-time favorite bands.

That's a hard question to answer, not just because of how many good albums they have but because of how many different kinds of albums they have. You can't go wrong with anything they've done really (Nocturama is generally regarded as the only bad egg in their catalog, and it's still solid), but their albums get progressively more accessible from the debut on, so depending on your taste you might want to start with one of the later albums. I certainly back From Her to Eternity, because it's brilliant, but I've also found it to be one of their most polarizing records. If you want something that's a bit more immediate while still retaining the basic elements of their early sound, Your Funeral...My Trial is your best bet. That said, their last two albums (well, three) are probably the best place to start just based on accessibility alone, and quality-wise they rank in the upper tier of their work for me. To reiterate what Craig said, Abattoir Blues/The Lyre of Orpheus is sublime, and Dig, Lazarus, Dig!!! is just a couple of steps behind it.

And I'd definitely second checking out Boatman's Call, but it's in a completely different ballpark than the majority of Nick's work and I think it'd be best to listen to some of his other material first. Personally, my favorite period of his work is the early to mid '90s (Tender Prey through Let Love In) - those are all stellar albums with infinite replay value. Good luck, man. There is so much quality stuff for you to discover.

The first album of theirs that I really got into after Dig, Lazarus, Dig!!! was Tender Prey.

I feel like I'm in the minority, but this has always been my favorite from Lazarus (crappy quality, but I assume most people in here are familiar with it anyway):
