Redditors Have Selected ‘Random Access Memories’ As The Best Electronic Album Of The 2010s

The last 10 years have given us a wealth of game-changing electronic music – from Jamie XX‘s In Colour to Flume‘s self-titled, Flying LotusCosmogramma to SOPHIE‘s Oil of Every Pearl’s Un-Insides.

Looking back on a tremendously high-quality decade of music, members of the r/electronicmusic subreddit recently came together to vote on their top 100 records over the last 10 years, and the results are in.

At the top of the list is Daft Punk‘s essential Random Access Memories. The 2013 record, which of course included the tremendously popular ‘Get Lucky’,  was a critical and commercial success, topping the charts and cementing the duo’s place in the annals of electronic music history.

The rest of the list features all the records mentioned at the top of this article, alongside the likes of canonised favourites like Porter Robinson‘s Worlds, Jon Hopkins‘ Immunity, LCD Soundsystem‘s This Is Happening and Caribou‘s Our Love, to name a few.

There’s some more interesting picks – 100 gecs‘ experimental pop breakout 1000 gecs scrapes in at #97 – and some notable absences. As Pilerats point out, neither Robyn nor Charli XCX made it into the list, despite both having made a tremendous impact on the current landscape of dance and electronic music.
