Good Techno?

I realize this thread will probably be disliked by most, but I figured why the hell not

Personally I'm not much of a fan of any techno/electronica/etc, but recently I've heard some great songs that make me want to give it a second chance.

Here's some songs I've really come to enjoy:

Future Sound of London - Herd Killing
Future Sound of London - Landmass
Future Sound of London - We Have Explosive
The Prodigy - Claustrophobic Sting
The Prodigy - Firestarter
The Prodigy - Skylined
The Prodigy - Their Law
The Prodigy - Voodoo People

Mostly just the Prodigy in general. They seem to approach Techno in a way that sounds pretty good to a metal head I suppose as a few of my metal head friends like them as well.

I don't know if this is the kind of thing you're asking for, but VENETIAN SNARES! I would have to recommend the album Rossz Csillag Allat Szuletett.

Paul Oakenfeld's 'Delirium - The Silence 2000' (DJ Tiesto Remix) is the best piece of techno/trance ever.

Armin Van Buuren also does a good job in the trance department, and I enjoy Infected Mushroom, an Israeli psychadelic trance outfit.

As you can see I like trance, moreso than regular techno.

The Prodigy is a good choice I think.
I only knew Breathe and Firestarter from the radio years ago but then I listened to the full album "The Fat of the Land" and it's pretty good IMO.
Especially the first track, Narayan and Climbatize. "Diesel Power" has a lot of rapping but I even like that.
Ok guys, I'm a weirdo

Without doubt get this album. Classical meats 'breakcore'.. One of my favourite albums ever. One of my favourite bands too.

Autechre are one of my favourite 'electronic' bands, as well as Boards Of Canada and Aphex Twin.

Black Sun Empire are another amazing band, who are 'jungle' i think.. Although they've got some random sub-genre titles like "Darkstep" and "Neurofunk". Check out 'Driving Insane'.

Check out The Retrosic as well.. Kind of industrial/ebm but with techno/trance-ish synths. Probably the most similar to Prodigy etc.. Check out 'God Of Hell'.

My biggest issue with the genre is it's hard to necessarily put a finger on what each genre is. Metal certainly has its share of sub-genres but they're not too hard to figure out...

I have the same problem, but it's because I listen to metal a lot more than electronic music. Are you sure you're not the same? I could see a person who listens to electronic music saying the same thing about metal. Anyway, who cares about labels? That shouldn't be your biggest issue.

Downloaded a bunch (haven't listened to most of it yet) and threw in Fatboy Slim because I wanted to get Weapon of Choice. While the album it came on was pretty bad (leaning more towards hiphop or funk) I must say that Better Living Through Chemistry is a pretty great album- especially Santa Cruz, Going Out Of My Mind & The Sound of Milwaukee.

I have no idea either about the subgenres of Electronica. I just find bands I like and look up similar ones. Whatever FSOL and Aphex Twin are categorized under, that'd be it.
