(idm) Definitive IDM Tracks (results) [LONG]

First off, thanks to everyone who took the time to send a
list.

I think (reaching my arms out WAYYY WIDE to give everyone
a big pat on the back) we came up with a pretty
damn good bunch of records.

I realize how hard it was  to whittle it down to 5 tracks --
my initial list had  about 20, and after cutting the fat I quickly
found myself slicing muscle (to use a particularly grisly analogy.)

I'll have a HTML-ized version of this within the next
few days, complete with artist links (where available).

==========================================================

These go to eleven:

   I won't mention tracks as there are whole albums worth of pointing out.


   1. Cabaret Voltaire - "The Conversation"
   2. The Orb - "Orb's adventures in the Ultraworld"
   3. Goldie - "Timeless"  -- I don't know if you consider it to be idm e.g.
      intelligent, but I certainly do. There is a real history of black
      music hidden in these tracks. Something to "think" about for sure.
