What are Philip K. Dick's best works?

To all Philip K. Dick fans: Dick seems to have published a formidable amount of work, and rather than trying to read all of his novels/short stories, I'm wondering if any MeFites are familiar with his books and could recommend his best 5 or so.

I recently read Dr. Bloodmoney, and while I highly enjoyed the premise, I believe on the whole, there were as many -if not more- flaws as there were strong points. I'd really like to be able to experience Dick's best works without having to wade through the "mixed-bag" material. While I do enjoy reading a flawed novel from time to time, my books-to-read list is already quite lengthy, and I'm trying to get to the meat-and-potatoes of all of the greats that I can. So can anybody here suggest 4 or 5 of their favorite Dick books?
