yes, Blood Inside is my favourite, I think... although I like Perdition City a mighty lot too. And Shadows of the Sun used to be a frequent guest on my playlist as well ;) Actually, their latest album is also... hah, just kidding. Although some tracks from Wars of the Roses are in fact pretty good Sleepy

As for their black metal albums, I must say that compared to some more recent post-black metal releases (Fen's Epoch or Agalloch's Marrow of the Spirit), their early albums do not excite me as much. Still, they started it all (as far as I know), so respect.

Quite like Kraftwerk and on the more experimental side Throbbing Gristle and Cabaret Voltaire did some pretty interesting stuff.

I know not many people here are fans of electronic music like I am, but I made a list of electronic albums on the List Challenges site. So if you want to give it a try, here it is:

Air is only partially Electronic, but I agree that they are great Clap. I´ve seen them three times live over the years, and especially the gig supporting 10,000 Hz Legend was incredible.

We certainly do, and if you like Aphex Twin, I'd highly recommend checking out Deadmau5's Get Scraped and While (1<2) albums. Very eclectic albums with some Aphex Twin-esque styling.

^ Got seven out of the 25. The electronic genre has a lot of my favorite artists, but I tend to go for the less structured stuff. Ambient, Berlin school, dark ambient, industrial, noise, and power electronics, with some idm and related.

What do you think of Orbital? I've fallen back in love with Snivilisation, which is one of my all-time favorite electronic albums. I've always thought that it's their most eclectic album, and doesn't get enough love.

Ehhhh. Never really went for anything I've heard by them, not really my style tbh. I tend to like stuff that most would consider boring, stuff that's really repetitive or soundscape artists and albums, or completely unlistenable and abrasive. The artists I'm really enjoying right now are Keith Fullerton Whitman, nurse with wound, zoviet France, nod, and burial hex to just name a very few.

^Ah, I have some pretty eclectic tastes so I love both repetitive stuff along the lines of Kraftwerk and early The Orb, and eclectic artists like Deadmau5, Eat Static, and Orbital. I mostly gravitate towards either chillout/downtempo stuff or really energetic breakbeat or IDM. That's probably one reason why I love Deadmau5 so much, as he combines both.

I would enjoy ambient music if it weren't for the fact it's so easy to replicate amateurishly (and usually in low quality).

You're really missing out on Deadmau5 and Eat Static, I'd highly recommend checking them out when you get the chance.

Hey, you're right! I'll check em out but you reminded me that i do like Mouse On Mars :) 
Also like trance stuff like Juno Reactor and other Goa Trance stuff. Going to Burning Man has expanded the electronica on speed palette :P

There has to be some other Power Electronics fans here. Probably not.

I am not a huge fan of electronic music myself....it is irritating + too loud for my tastes...My fiance' loves it, so, I have to pretend like I love it too...It actually makes my head hurt like hell when I hear it playing..=[
