the 25 greatest electronic albums of the 20th century. another list to drive me batty. apparently the 20th century began in 1977. they do qualify this later in the article by saying they settled for the last 25 years, but how boring is that? why not just be honest at the beginning and call it what it is, instead of pretending these even remotely reflect the 20th century? where is perrey and kingsley? or the music of les baxter that uses a theremin? or clara rockmore for that matter? my suspicion is it's another list created by people too young and too ignorant to know about music that happened prior to 1977. i'm not surprised, but it's still disappointing.
