if they come out with an album I am sure it will be one of the top 10 essential albums for electronic music, though they really push the boundaries of what is considered music

Some decent recommendations here already. I'm thinking...

Depeche Mode - Violator
Thievery Corporation - The Richest Man in Babylon
Tricky - Maxinquaye
Bjork - Post
M.I.A. - Arular
Peaches - Impeach My Bush
Colder - Again

The greatest hits albums by The Chemical Brothers, Faithless, Enigma, Basement Jaxx, and Lamb are really excellent too. Some VNV Nation, Royksopp, Fatboy Slim, Moloko, Dntel, and Portishead are necessary for sure.

Most of these could be considered as being of some other genre (what music can't, really?), but I think they're electronic enough and good enough that electronic fans should take a look at them.

My favorite electronic subgenre would be trance music. The best trance out there, imho, is made by Tiesto, Armin Van Buuren, and M.I.K.E. I'd especially recommend Tiesto and Armin's newest artist albums (Elements of Life and Shivers, respectively). They both put out lots of DJ mix albums that are fantastic as well.

Dang. And how could I forget Deep Forest? One of my favorites! I strongly recommend any of their albums, but especially Music Detected.

AIR!

They're a little on the pop side but they are definately electronic, listen to their albums in this order:

Moon Safari
Talkie Walkie
10,000 Hz Legend
Pocket Symphony

No one's mentioned Underworld yet?! Second Toughest in the Infants is definitely top 10 material, if not top 5.

I'll second the above mentions of Tricky & Thievery Corporation, though I prefer Pre-Millenium Tension (much dirtier and creepy than Maxinquaye) and The Mirror Conspiracy, respectively. And also in the downtempo genre, I'd recommend Kruder & Dorfmeister's K & D Sessions, which is a double album of mostly remxing other artist's songs, but it's phenomenal.

Also surprised no one's mentioned Massive Attack. The old-schoolers will tell you Blue Lines is the best, but you could easily make a case for Protection.

Don't forget Kraftwerk's Computer World. I know I'm not alone in thinking that this was their best album. It was certainly their most visionary. God, that album was released in '81! Before the personal computer. Before Commodore 64. Before Apple. Before the mouse. Give it a listen and think about that. Just amazing.

Trance is one of my favorite subgenres! But I don't have any albums/CDs from that genre. I've heard of DJ Tiesto, Paul Van Dyk and a few other names. I will check out your recs! I'm a big fan of the other sub genre Dream too. Robert Miles!

I'm really starting to get into Massive Attack lately.

I have Collected, which is awesome.

What album should I get next?
