The ULTIMATE Top Albums of the 2000s Mega List

The ULTIMATE Top Albums of the 2000s Mega List
Tired of reading multiple lists to find out where they agree and differ? This list will try to make sense of the decade and the magazines who have expressed their choices for the best of this decade.

Data used so far was from Decade lists from Rolling Stone, NME, Uncut, and Pitchfork. I'll add more comparisons as they come.

Again take my comments with a grain of salt. Lists and comparing them en masse is really not that important in the scheme of things and is just for fun. I just wanted to point out regardless of the periodical that odd choices were made and the comparisons point to this. There is no such thing as a perfect list and beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

"Very much still in progress."

The Great Remixers and their Work

Most of the Remixes We've Made for Other People Over the Years Except for the One for Einstürzende Neubauten Because We Lost It and a Few We Didn't Think Sounded Good Enough or Just Didn't Fit in Length-Wise, but Including Some That Are [...]

The Clubbers of RYM

join us!!
There's few of us who actively love house, techno, trance, big beat, and drum & bass. You know the electronica that's not IDM. For those who like(d) to listen to this type of music in (and out of) clubs here's a group for ya'll to join. Feel free to let me know your favorite styles and any other info and I'll include in this list. Let's stick together and help import what's missing into RYM so we're a step closer to the great Discogs.

My Top 100 Favorite Remixes of all Time

Bizarre Love Triangle / Bizarre Dub Triangle

Tried to not include any album versions or anything that states "Original Mix". What i did try to include were some historically important remixes, some floor slayers, and a few personal picks that were very underlooked. All of these I can recommend and most really transformed the original track into something different or better. These are all DANCE remixes though. If you want a trip-hop or IDM remix of a song you won't find it here. List is chronological too.

If you see any top notch mixes please recommend themin comments and I may add any that I clearly overlooked. Otherwise my rough draft looks pretty solid I think and I did spend about 4 days on this list off and on. Youtube links added when I could find them.

60's and 70's Great Electronic Lists (Ambient, Minimalism, Early Electronic, Krautrock, Synthpop)

Autobahn
List that is mostly for myself (I'm getting into 70's electronic finally) but I'm sure will be useful to others so I am making it public. A great list of records on other lists to check out.

20 Best Ambient Records Ever Made (FactMagazine)

Ambient 1: Music for Airports
from here. Did a small edit as one of the released wasn't in any databases. Really this is almost 80 albums as there are an additional 3 recommendations for each of the 20 in the list. I'd pay less attention to the order and just take them as some great ambient recomendations. Some obviously only loosely fit the term...

Guide to New Order Singles, Remixes, and Compilations

Fine Time
Many of New Order's best singles never appeared on any albums, some were released in both 7" and 12" versions, others were remixed and re-recorded a huge amount of times. There are six separate New Order compilations with different remixes on each. This list is to help you make sense of the madness that is the New Order catalog.

"I'm with the band!"


Despite getting most of their "jobs" as members in bands these people did very little for their bandmates but still led rather fascinating lives. This is a shrine for those who have beaten the odds and done more than most of us geeks on RYM despite not having necessarily the talen

The Greatest Stalking Songs

The More You Ignore Me, The Closer I Get
Just in time for Valentine's Day! Lyrics included so you can include them on your cards. If I'm missing any gems let me know. I'm looking for love songs that are more obsessed love songs (the kind that should freak people outif they're smart enough to examine the lyrics).
