I think it's Drukqs. I think that's not a popular decision.


But SAW2 is pretty close... and a lot of Autechre album are
close... LP5 and EP7, Confield, Tri Repetae... and maybe
Music has the Right to Children is up there...

But Drukqs is the best!

I don't think its possible to be in an objective
perspective, cortex :P

I'm actually inclined to answer this question with Richard
Devine's 'Lipswitch'. Its definately an aquired taste, but
its litterally the only cd I have which I have listened to
upwards of 200 times and don't ever find myself getting
bored of. Also, Lens, Align (the last track) is quite
possibly the richest, most haunting melody I have ever heard
in IDM.

Jega's Geometry, Autechre's EP7 and Plaid's Rest Proof
Clockwork are also favorites of mine, and easily combine to
make up my the top 4 cd's of all time.

Orbus Terrerum by the Orb is my 5th favorite. |)

this changes every sunday, but right this moment: plaid -
double figure (and pretty much anything else plaid has
done), for making that type of music so damn fun to listen
to, boards of canada - geogaddi, because it's perty, bola -
fyuti just cuz he's good, +one - bare necessities and push
button objects - dirty dozen, for proving music doesn't have
to be complicated to be great.

im surprised you all consider an artisis album to be the
best idm..surely compilations would be better as they cover
a wider range?

no one took the question seriously. instead, we all decided
the question was "what album do you like the best?"

Hard as hell to make a choice.
"The philosophy of sound and machine"(ART/Rephlex)?
"Bytes" by Black Dog Productions?
"Objets d'art"(new electronica)?

Defenitely something by Autechre or APhex Twin but really
couldn't pick out "THE" best IDM album.

taxidermist:

i agree that it's impossible to be completely objective, but
it's possible to be somewhat objective. i shouldve written
"in my most objective perspective".

and i still stand by tri rep++ for this choice. it covers a
wide range of styles for a single release and the fact that
it's a double album (twice the number of tracks) can be
judge in an objective manner imo.

Taxidermist, I really don't know what you see in Devine's
Lipswitch album. Admittedly the last track is brilliant in
it's way, but none of the other tracks have any music in
them. They're just beats and glitches. Does anyone agree?


 

offline Krendo from Leicester (United Kingdom) on 2002-04-19 20:18 [#00184920]

Anyway, I think SAW II is probably the best 'IDM' album. But
do we have to use this dreadful acronym? It's just music.

offline Taxidermist from Black Grass on 2002-04-21 08:24 [#00186709]
Points: 9958 Status: Lurker



Almost everything about it. The fact that there is so much
going on, yet every single sound comes thru 'crisp'. The
fact that most sounds used never appear more than once.
Everything is so subtly arranged, yet the sounds are so
obnoxious. Its as paradoxical in nature as an album can get.
And after listening to it so many times I am always finding
new things in every listen.

Also, whenever I fall asleep to music, I analyze it. It
seems to slow down, and half the time I get confused and
think its stuff that I wrote (half asleep, right?). Anyways.
The first time I ever actually enjoyed a richard devine
track was when I accidentally burnt it to a cd, and without
realizing that it was there, I fell asleep with this
supposedly 'chilled' compilation disc. In the midst of my
mind doing the half asleep analysis thing... I came across
the lipswitch track, and it was the most fascinating
feeling. When I woke up I didn't really remember what I had
thought of during my falling asleep the night before... and
for a second night in a row I put the compilation disc on...
and it fully kicked in when the Devine track came around.
Half way through, I woke up fully, and started to remember
what I felt the night before, and then realized I had just
found one of the most brilliant ellectronic musicians
kicking. And from then on he has been one of my top 5
artists, and Lipswitch is with me wherever I go. Litterally.


Well, that is the best way I can discribe it. Sorry if that
came out as a mess, I have been awake all weekend.

Respect.

not so hard to try ....cuz we can be objective,very
much,just not completeley.......uh, what a mess:)

anyway tri repetae is oneof those classic idm
masterpieces.....and it could easily be number one,its just
that i personally prefer spanners...
