    Colony? Clayman was in flames peak. Jester Race was mint as well.
    The Jester Race, Whoracle and Clayman are all excellent, I just happened to be listening to Colony at the time of writing that list so I put it down

    If you like rock then:

    Demon Days - Gorillaz
    Vessels - Starset (heavier rock, only downside I found with this album is they randomly scream at times which at first I was unprepared for, still a top album)
    Unleashed - Skillet
    Rise - Skillet

    I heard anders wrecked his voice and can't growl like he used to. Don't know how true it is but it'd make sense given the style change.

    Haven't heard anything if the sort and can't find any reference to that. But the style change is probably so they can sell more copies in North America.

    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.
    Any opinions on the new MGMT album?

    Wow
    Thoughts on the list?

    Some albums people might disagree with from a particular artist (I think the second NWA album is better than the first for example, and my Kanye inclusion might be controversial) and it's more difficult if you're picking one from each artist. I can think of at least ten artists in that list who I would say have more than one must listen album.
