As to your question, yes, the Gramophone top 10 is a good, safe and general starting point. It is just scratching the surface though and one can dig a lot deeper. Not to bury you though and not knowing you personally in order to predict what you could like I would suggest you ask yourself what you really want or expect out of this Bach recommendation exercise?
I would generally say you could focus on orchestral / concerto (1-3), choral (9-10) or solo instruments (4-8) (keyboard, violin, cello, lute etc.) . On the Gramophone top 10 I have put the numbers next to the three general categories. You may find you like them all or favour one or two genres over the others. That's fine. The point is to be honest and then follow your heart. For me, it is solo instruments, vocal music and concertos that I pursue the most.
Now, at the risk of taking you off the well worn garden path I have another idea. When I read your thread topic it is essentially two things: 1) Bach 2) recommendations for a beginner. So this got me thinking more toward point 2 and then to what the first Bach experience was for me as a 'beginner' some 45 or 50 years ago.
I would like to introduce you to Bach's second wife, Anna Magdalena Bach. Essentially, J.S. Bach gave his new wife two special musical notebooks shortly after their marriage (the first one was in 1722) and the second one in 1725. The first one contained Bach's own French Suites (some completed and some fragments) plus various other little works. Most of this is lost to us today. Some of the music is from J.S. Bach and his wife would add other music of the day too. So, essentially a musical scrapbook for the family to enjoy and learn from. Today, the Notebook for Anna Magdalena Bach is basically the 1725 version. It contains two Partitas (BWV 827 & 830) and two French Suites (BWV 812 & 813) plus various small works and Choral snippets. Again, some contributed by other members of the Bach family (like P.E. Bach) or others like Petzold, Couperin etc.
So this is a long way to say that my (and every child who took piano lessons probably) very first Bach exposure was through this book. In particular, these were the various beginning Menuets, a Rondeau, a Polonaise and some Chorals. It worked for me so I thought why not offer this as a different starting point? So, with the understanding that this is not 100% Bach, I offer you a journey through the Notebook for Anna Magdalena Bach (1725, mostly).
This is almost a couple of hours so it is a fair commitment but well worth it if you want to experience a bit of the what the Bach household may have been like (keyboard & voice). Anna Magdalena was a trained professional singer so you can see how important these Chorales are (Bach wrote 200 Cantatas in addition to the Passions and Mass etc.)
If you like keyboard works, after this I would start with the Two-Part Inventions and Sinfonias (3-part inventions). If you like Decca, I think you could look for Andras Schiff or others?
Actually, if you go to this link you can then easily see what the different pieces are...
Enjoy the journey!
