5 The Inevitable End - Röyksopp
6 Play - Moby
7 4x4=12 - Deadmau5
8 Welcome Reality - Nero

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

9 Discovery - Daft Punk

Discovery is currently at 8. What a joke.

10 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".

The Contenders

11 Selected Ambient Works 85-92 - Aphex Twin

While, today, the whole album may seem not that impressive and mind-shattering, back in the day, the atmospheric synths combined with the drum machines created a whole new sound in electronic music. This was the first record of the man who would go on to inspire a whole crowd of new electronic musicians, like Daft Punk and Skrillex, and I reckon that's pretty important in the history of electronica. - ArchAces

12 Random Access Memories - Daft Punk

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

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 Maximum Entropy - Man Without Country
18 Computer World - Kraftwork
19 Push the Button - The Chemical Brothers
20 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.

21 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.

22 Kid A - Radiohead
23 Skrillex and Diplo Present Jack Ü - Jack Ü

This album is not important. Like, at all.

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

The first Industrial album.

This album made industrial music!

26 The Downward Spiral - Nine Inch Nails
27 Untrue - Burial
28 Trans-Europe Express - Kraftwerk
29 Pretty Hate Machine - Nine Inch Nails
30 Suicide - Suicide
31 Empires - VNV Nation
32 United We Are
33 In Sides - Orbital
