THE ultimate album

What do you think is the best "all around" idm release?

let's say a friend of yours knows nothing about idm (or
whatever you like to call it...) and wants to borrow one of
your albums to find out what it sounds like. what would you
recommend him? in other words, which album best describes
the genre for you?

id say autechre's tri repetae++. it covers a wide range of
what idm is, and it's not too experimental for untrained
ears. everyone should have it in their collection!

sounds too simlar to idm as a whole. when i think ot idm i
think of clicks =)

actually, i did just that! it was an intro to IDM, for a
friend (who mostly learnde through osmosis in my car). I
also gave him solutions for a small planet by haujobb (to
show off some bad ass european industrial).

but i feel that the best idm is the more glitchier stuff,
ppl don't really talk about it here, but i'm talking like
projects like "Xingu Hill, or Ammo." if you have dsl, get
these off of soulseek. their both done by the same guy. i
strongly sugest Xingu Hill's "this anxious space," and
ammo's "kalienoscope" (just do a search for ammo, because i
can't spell the disc title)

very abstract, new, fresh, and great sounding idm. it
doesn't sound like anything talked on this board at all, and
i strongly sugest getting the xingu hill cd i mentioned.

I'd say I Care Because You Do is the quintessential
electronic album. If you don't have it, you deserve to be
bludgeoned.

The ultimate album doesn't exist niether does The ultimate
music or The ultimate artist.... but Drukqs is my favourite
IDM at the moment, even tho half of it is not really IDM...


 

offline CORTEX from Canada on 2002-03-30 08:16 [#00150237]
Points: 3346 Status: Regular



i agree that the ultimate album does not exist, or will ever
exist for that matter. basically, what i was trying to ask
was to name the album that, in your opinion, was THE classic
idm album, the one that everyone couldnt afford not to have,
or the "quintessential electronic/idm album, therefore, the
album that would best describe the genre for an initiated
listener that wanted to give this type of music a try...

perhaps it's not an easy choice to make. maybe this is why
only a few people gave an answer in this thread. or maybe
im not making myself very clear (i dont speak english very
well)!

Points: 1056 Status: Regular



you're english is fine and i can't think of one actually so
i guess it is a hard question, Drukqs is not "classic" but
its my favourite right now and will probablly change as soon
as i hear something new.....


 

offline CORTEX from Canada on 2002-03-30 08:22 [#00150241]
Points: 3346 Status: Regular



oh yeah, and the reason i posted this question was basically
to find out which important/pinnacle albums i was missing in
my collection, according to the fine people on this board.

ummm, do you have Accelerator by FSOL? go get it...


 

offline CORTEX from Canada on 2002-03-30 08:30 [#00150254]
Points: 3346 Status: Regular



actually, i dont. ive got lifeforms, isdn and dead cities
though. it's the only fsol album i havent heard good things
from... maybe i should give it a try, ive been eagerly
wanting for some new fsol material!

Points: 1056 Status: Regular



i've got all these too, Accelerator is the danciest out of
all of them, and i reckon its good, not as good as the rest
tho....

Accelerator sucks big time (imho). I bought it recently and
ended up taking it back! I changed it for Lifeforms, which
i'm glad i did cos its excelent.

How about one of the WARP Compilations?...

For early IDM, go to the source and go for Artificial
Intelligence Vol I...(or the 2 CD version of AI 2, which I
prefer...)...

or the WARP100 We Are Resonable People...that had a decent
mix of tunes on it...

IDM's such a wide genre muscially really...

Warp100 got my mate into all this stuff we like, but
generally i'd say richard d. james album or selected ambient
works 85-92 is good for those getting into it.


 

offline CORTEX from Canada on 2002-03-31 08:54 [#00151750]

wap100 is definitly a great call. i should own it. the
aphex/squarepusher collaboration is reason enough to buy it!
what a track.

oh yeah, and it also has autechre's stop look listen, one of
their most underrated tracks imo. sounds like it came
straight out of lp5.
