I know Cal is not big on this... but Ilford multigrade fiber is a great paper and I loved the matte version of this paper. With a clean set of filters, you will get great results with this paper. And while Cal thinks its a crutch, I think it is a good way to learn where your negatives will naturally print... meaning which grade paper you'll usually need if you want to use graded papers for the reasons (mostly surface texture / tone) that others have mentioned.
