With prime day going on tomorrow, i will likely be throwing money at them and figured id get some EDM albums.

My edm experience is very piecemeal, i use soundcloud/youtube a lot which means i usually listen to singles, if i like a DJ enough ill go get his album or check it out on soundcloud. Today i discovered the kaskade -atmosphere album and decided i need to own more EDM albums.

Some EDM albums i own, that i enjoy, to get an idea of my taste:

ODEZSA
Seven Lions
Kaskade
Knife Party
Nero
Bassnectar
Hippie Sabotage

Im really into indie, trance, and dubstep.

Artist - Album(s)
Orbital - Blue and Brown album
Infected Mushroom - Classical Mushroom
Astral Projection ... just about any of them
Hybrid - Wide Angle
DNTEL - Life is Full of Possibilities
The Chemical Brothers - Dig Your Own Hole
Mylo - Destroy Rock and Roll
Daft Punk.

That's my off the top of the head list. Orbital is probably my favorite--the entire blue album is pure beauty. Then it's close between Astral Projection and Infected...depends on the mood.

Oooh just remembered this one:

The Orb - The Orb's Adventures Beyond the Ultraworld. Pretty amazing one too.

I cringe at the mention of the term "EDM". At least you didn't say "EDM music". I would go with the aforementioned Above & Beyond albums.
I decided to quit lurking and create a profile for the sole purpose of recommending Andrew Bayer's Album, "If It Were You, We'd Never Leave". Easily my favorite artist album, an incredible piece of music. I can't sing enough praises for it.
New Lane 8 album "Rise" just came out today. based on his current body of work, I feel confident recommending that album without having listened to it.

Not sure why you would cringe over it, thats simply what its called these days. I was around when house was called house, trance, etc. But the electronic music scene is growing so much that you need to lump all the genres up, for the same reason melodeath, death, power, black, viking, nu are all lumped into the metal category.

I hear you. I pretty much stick to the trance and progressive labels like Anjunabeats, Enhanced, Silk, etc. The reason I don't like using one general term is because the different subgenres are so different. Dubstep, D&B, Trance, nudisco, Deep House, Electro House, etc. are all very different and appeal to different tastes. I guess that's why I get so tweaked about it.

also... I don't dance. So I usually exclude the "D" and just call it Electronic Music. That term I'm more accepting towards.

A few more that haven't been mentioned yet (excellent suggestions above, too:)

-any album by Pendulum (Immersion and In Silico are more rock/dubstep-ish while Hold Your Colour is more DnB/ragga-ish)
-All of HYC and IS are on YouTube- search the album titles and they'll be the first results.
-Pendulum is Knife Party before they were Knife Party, so if you like them you'l like this too.

-dubnobasswithmyheadman by Underworld (if you liked that album by Orbital someone else mentioned, but wished it was slightly more sexual and more housey/ambient)
-Not on either YouTube or Soundcloud entirely, but still highly worth looking for.

-Barking by Underworld (more strictly poppy/mainstream, but still good)
-The whole album, plus a recording of them playing it live in Ibiza, is on YouTube.

-Blue Leaves EP by Etherwood (liquid dnb crossed with decent vocals.)
-The whole thing is on YouTube.

-Timeline by Artificial Intelligence (strange but still very good.)
-The whole album is on SoundCloud.
