3 Random Album Title - Deadmau5
4 18 - Moby
5 The Inevitable End - Röyksopp
6 Play - Moby

This is one of the the greatest of all time! I'm surprised that it isn't in the top 3.

7 4x4=12 - Deadmau5
8 Welcome Reality - Nero

Such a Great experience to my mind when I listen to this album!

9 Autobahn - Kraftwerk

If it weren't for THIS...the rest of this list would probably never have existed! Respect due!

The only one that matters, the rest are just pretenders if the category is "importance".

10 Discovery - Daft Punk

Discovery is currently at 8. What a joke.

The Contenders

11 Selected Ambient Works 85-92 - Aphex Twin
12 Random Access Memories - Daft Punk

Definitely Daft Punk's best album and songs wonder it won 5 GRAMMY'S

Every song is amazing! no wonder it got 5 grammys

13 Disco Zone - O-Zone

Most of you would think that this shouldn't be here but I put it here anyway because it just sounds so joyful. - 12cc

14 True - Avicii
15 Collected - Massive Attack
16 Dubnobasswithmyheadman - Underworld
17 Computer World - Kraftwork

This album has influenced so many great artists like Orbital, Deadmau5, and so many more! - Slipperyjack40

18 Maximum Entropy - Man Without Country
19 Kid A - Radiohead
20 Push the Button - The Chemical Brothers
21 Silver Apples - Silver Apples

Kraftwerk's "Autobahn" was still more important, as this earlier masterpiece received virtually no recognition.

One of the first rock albums to incorporate heavy electronic elements into their music, predating the Kosmische musik movement of the 1970s, and as such, became pretty influential when it came to experimental electronic music and underground dance music.

22 Ok Computer - Radiohead

This album needs to be higher. Why! The way it is played to perform electronic music plus its sound is like none other. Except for In Rainbows which took it to a whole new level, but that album is more rock-ish.

23 Trans-Europe Express - Kraftwerk
24 Skrillex and Diplo Present Jack Ü - Jack Ü

This album is not important. Like, at all.

25 Low - David Bowie
26 The Second Annual Report - Throbbing Gristle

The first Industrial album.

This album made industrial music!

28 Untrue - Burial
29 Empires - VNV Nation
