The first four studio albums are absolute power pop magic (s/t, In Color, Heaven Tonight, Dream Police). Quality slips from that point on though.

In Color is my personal favorite (Southern Girls, Downed, Cpme On, Come On - not a bad song on the album)...and if you're web savvy enough and can track down the Steve Albini remix that was shelved many years ago, then you're in for a treat. It's well known that CT was unhappy with the production on In Color, so sometime in 1998 they re-recorded the album with Albini, but decided to hold on to it and never release it. It's out there somewhere in bootleg form and it's awesome to hear those songs the way Nielsen wanted them originally.

Other than that, I'd say their debut is one of the most underrated in rock history and their last two independent releases have been solid and back on track with the early songwriting style. All in all, the only album I don't go back to is Special One. That was a bit of a mess, but Rockford made up for that.
