    • It's not a bad list, it's got most of the critical stuff. Some of the ordering is weird and some of the selctions are arguably not electro.

      The Message, while a great track, is arguably not electro. On the other hand "Message II (Survival)" is strictly electro and doesn't even make the list.

      Also, where is Stone - "Time"?

      Where is Royal Cash - "Radioactivity"?

      Where is "What People Do For Money"?

      Those three may not be "100% electro" but all three are way more electro than "The Message" (for instance), and definitely top 100 material.

      Why is there nothing from Computer World in that list? Half the album should be on there..

      What about Freestyle joints that have heavy electro tendencies?

      Again, good list, just trying to over analyze I guess..

      oh yeah, and how the hell does "I Can't Live Without My Radio" get on there?? I don't see that by any stretch of the imagination. It should be replaced by "Going Back To Cali", pronto.

      I liked your first answer Brad in which you asked what sort of c**t calls LL Cool J electro ? ;D ;D ;D But when I came back you'd changed it :''( I totally agreed with you & pissed myself laughing at the same time!
