No orbital?   orbital 2, middle of nowhere and insides are all outstanding albums.   the 30 min box suite is incredible too

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.

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

Orbital is not on PA.

I voted for Stand By.

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.

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 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.

I have suggested Orbital in 2010 bet they were rejected.

Force Majeure, then Stand By

New Age of Earth is quite nice, and that KS album isn't one of my favorites.

Yes, I was going to say the same thing. Taking Tiger Mountain's a great art rock album, but not really 'progressive electronic' in the slightest.

Zombi--Spirit Animal.

Another vote for Astra - though I've not heard all of these.

Best electronic (symphonic) album I've got is Michael Neil's Cornubia

The purpose of the poll is to offer 10 options from albums in PE. I chose 10 albums that were not the most obvious examples from the artists. The point was to list 10 albums that didn't have much in common.

A lot of fine albums here, but I can't not vote for my fave Heldon albumHeart Force Majeure is up there as well.

Hey Richard. I think you'll really appreciate the ZOMBIE: SPIRIT ANIMAL album.
It's got great spacey soundscapes and it's an album that will surely put you in the zone.
Give it a go when you can. Amazon has it for cheap right now. :)

That's our top 10? Really? Not bad, but some surprising choices here, like Eno. That Throbbing Gristle album though, classsic. That's where my vote goes.

^Very nice electronic album indeedApprove

If you can imagine TD hooking up with Chris Squire and Neil Peart, then you're not entirely off.

I love Zombi (can you tell?), but as soon as I saw Force Majeure, I knew where my vote was going. It is a bona fide classic that I've spent many years with. It never gets old. Great piano and guitar (and real drums, even) in addition to the electronics. Everyone should own it.

Haven't heard anything but 'Ghosts On Magnetic Tape', which is not really Bas Communion's greatest work (Loss is much more interesting), so no vote.

^If you haven't heard the Zombi album on the list, it came out a couple of years ago. Fairly modern sounding but with some retro touches.

Radio Massacre International - Emissaries, Time & Motion
Steve Moore - Light Echoes
ARC - Church, Fracture

Ian

I'm loving the new Mount Kimbie record - Cold Spring Fault Less Youth. I'd highly suggest that, if you want something new and fresh. Very minimalistic, but not really in the traditional sense, just very relaxed and abstract. I think it has potential to be a modern classic.

I love Tangerine Dream but Force Majeure is in second-last place in my list of 70s TD albums (Cyclone is in last place).

My vote goes to Radio-Aktivität, my favourite Kraftwerk Album.

The vocals on Cyclone take some getting used to. I understand why you feel this way.

Have you heard LOGOS or HYPERBOREA? Amazing work by TD there. Highly recommend those 2. :)

Thank you for the information on here. There is an unknown group named Loop Guru and they are very psychedelic. I would not call it prog..

There is an independent band named Viima and they are out of Finland. I like them.

I am also independent.

Don't think I've mentioned ZOMBI's --Spirit Animal on this forum.

That is a keeper. Incredible soundscapes on that album.

"Bent Cold Sidewalk" is a killer song, though! Gotta mention White Eagle along with those other two...anything that has Johannes Schmoelling on it, really. He elevated the band in a way even Edgar Froese did not.

Bent Cold Sidewalk is by far, my favourite track off the Cyclone album.
Love the beginning and end sections of the song. :)
