    You’re right about Kenny, thanks

    I had access to a special remix that was released in 2002, that is how the mistake came about.

    Still it is a great album :-)

    Perfect call on including Rammstein’s Mutter in this list… That record was a masterpiece.

    I already had covenant, daft punk, ramm, and vnv nation down, but otherwise you just turned me on to about 17 bands. I’ve been looking for something electronic that’s even remotely as lyrically and muscially competent as those I listed, and mainstream sites – of course – failed to deliver.
