Pimsleur is an excellent language learning program, and one of the very few (aside from Transparent Language) which has tackled the complex Lithuanian language. After listening to Pimsleur Lithuanian, I was able to travel to Lithuania and communicate all I had learned without stress - I remembered all of the vocabulary I had learned, and I still remember it. My biggest complaint is that it it only covers units 1-10, so I've had to switch to other language-learning methods in order to continue my Lithuanian education, most of which are a great disappointment compared to the Pimsleur program. I highly recommend this to anyone looking to get a handle on the language at an absolute beginner's level.
