The original list was published in 2003 and only received a slight update in 2012 — but over the years, it has remained the go-to source for music’s greatest albums. To make the new list, Rolling Stone compiled Top 50 Albums lists from over 300 artists, producers, critics, and music-industry figures.
Marvin Gaye sits atop the list with What’s Going On, followed by The Beach Boys, Joni Mitchell, Stevie Wonder, The Beatles, Nirvana, Fleetwood Mac, Prince and the Revolution, Bob Dylan and Lauryn Hill.
We scanned through the entire list to find all the electronic gems. Among the 500 Greatest Albums of All Time, we have records from Robyn, Daft Punk, Massive Attack, Kraftwerk, DJ Shadow, and Brian Eno.
Rolling Stone says, “But no list is definitive — tastes change, new genres emerge, the history of music keeps being rewritten.”
With that in mind, here are the electronic/dance albums that ranked… See the full list here.
