    101's quite a few and my taste frankly isn't broad enough to give 101 amazing, unique albums. I can suggest a few though:

    My main genre is electronic, so here's some good electronic albums:
    Aphex Twin - drukqs
    Jon Hopkins - Immunity
    Daft Punk - Discovery
    Autechre - Exai
    Boards of Canada - Music Has the Right to Children
    Squarepusher - Ultravisitor
    Burial - Untrue
    Oneohtrix Point Never - Garden of Delete
    Justice - Cross
    The Avalanches - Since I Left You
    Venetian Snares - rossz csillag alatt született
    Clark - Body Riddle
    GAS - Pop
    DJ Shadow - Entroducing...
    Ed Harrison - Neotokyo
    Flying Lotus - Cosmogramma
    James Holden - The Inheritors
    Tim Hecker - Ravedeath 1972
    Kraftwerk - Trans Europe Express
    Monolake - HongKong
    u-ziq - Lunatic Harness

    Other things I like:
    Radiohead - Kid A
    Madvillain - Madvillainy
    Slowdive - Souvlaki (I seriously recommend all 4 of Slowdive's albums though)
    Have a Nice Life - Deathconsciousness and The Unnatural World (both are too good not to mention)
    Brian Eno - Another Green World
    Nine Inch Nails - The Downward Spiral
    Alcest - Écailles de Lune (and kodama, their newest album)
    Deafheaven - Sunbather
    Danny Brown - Atrocity Exhibiton
    Iron Maiden - Seventh Son of a Seventh Son
    Miles Davis - Kind of Blue
    Junip - Fields
    Kanye West - My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy
    Kendrick Lamar - To Pimp a Butterfly

    This leans really modern and I would definitely like to listen to more older music. Apart from the odd older album, this would probably make a better 'best of the last 25 years' list. Oh well.
