I guess the early Eno albums are electronic in the sense that normal rock instruments are electronically "treated", like they were on the early Roxy Music records. That was Eno's trademark.

Irrlicht for me. But there is I can't say I think any of the albums here are bad.

Went with Heldon.  I like "Taking Tiger Mountain by Strategy" way more than Heldon but I don't consider this Eno album to be particularly electronic...instead I think it's the most straightforward "rock" album he ever made.  Now if the Eno entry would have been "Another Green World" then he would've gotten my vote Wink
I'm using the chicken to measure it.

The Eno album I think is basically a rock album with rock instrumentation,
that is a little heavy on the keyboards/synths.  First three Synergy albums would be all winners.

I voted for Stand By.

I've only heard half of them, but from those I like Throbbing Gristle best.

Radio Activity by Kraftwerk, maybe my favorite album by them..  Honorable mention to Eno.  Still getting acquainted with the K.Schulze album but he's a master at this kind of thing.

Heldon for me (even though that's not my favorite Heldon album)

10 basically different sounding albums although a couple are somewhat similar.
