BOC fucking rock. All the albums listed have something worthwhile to offer.
"Lightning bolts become my swords as I pull them from the sky." I love that line from (I am) The Storm. Twisted Evil

Voted for Tyranny, hard to choose between that one & Secret Treaties...
Cool that someone voted for Cultosaurus- best of the later stuff...

It's all great, but I prefer Cultosaurus and especially Fire of Unknown Origin. Catchier, heavier and weirder.

I only know the five first and the live albums. Need to give these two a listen.

Monster band with many great albums, but their true masterpiece is and will remain Secret Treaties.

Some favorite tracks:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J4F3BwxBkdc - 7 Screaming Diz Busters, what guitar work!
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JyLnobK9q8Y - Flaming Telepaths, the 3 lasts tracks on Secret Treaties really are overloaded with atmosphere and great melodies.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7krC6SY5b1A - Black Blade, masterfully captures the essence of the Elric stories.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cIE0wTFg364 - Veteran of the Pshycic Wars. Again brilliant atmosphere and those lyrics are amazing.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HAXLlaW_4cM - The Siege and Investiture of Baron von Frankenstein's Castle at Weisseria, perhaps their most metal track and the vocal performance is top notch.

I only have "Fire of Unknown Origin" so far, but I'm surely gonna grab some other releases if I find them at a cheap price. I was bidding on "Agents of Fortune", but it's already over 10€, too much for an old record of a dinosaur rock band that was pressed millions of times probably...

Secret Treaties is the best one for me so far. I need to dive deeper into their discography as I'm only familiar with the first 5 albums.

BOC is certainly dad rock elite. Fire of Unknown Origin takes the cake for me, but each album has something to offer. Anyone heard their later stuff?

I saw them on the first ever Australian tour two weeks ago.

They put on an excellent show but the set-list was really disappointing: No Veteran (which I've always thought would make an excellent Doom song if covered properly), Burning for you, Astronomy, 7 Screaming Diz Busters, Flaming Telepaths which I really thought that they would play.
