Well in the case of Nine Inch Nails, for example, they're one of my favorite bands of all time and I've loved pretty much everything they've put out (if you quit right after With Teeth, you missed Year Zero which is one of their best albums by far), but while I could appreciate that they were getting more experimental on their latest album, I wasn't a fan of much of it. Usually if they put out a release, it goes on my favorite albums of the year list, but this one won't and that's okay. They've put out so much other material that I adore.

My last NIN purchase wasn't With Teeth, you misunderstand. With Teeth was just the point where I realised maybe this is where the band's starting to lose it, it was OK but not a patch on earlier stuff. Last I bought was The Slip (3 albums later) which had a couple of nice tracks but everything else on there was a big fat meh and not really doing much that hadn't been done before. Ghosts was actually the best thing Trent had done since The Fragile but then surrounded it on both sides with similar sounding stuff as With Teeth again.

I dunno, maybe I just get bored of artists more than most people or maybe people are just far more tolerant of having very samey things pushed at them.

I love new Chemical Brothers but the lyric loop is jarring :-(

...and what's with the loving noise on the chorus that's like twice as loud as the rest of the track??

It just made me want to go listen to this Tiga/Kolsch track instead

ODESZA put out an EP with remixes of Falls, and the rest of them I didn't care about much, but of course I dug this one because it's Glitch Mob:

Ok, I am a relative newb on the area of EDM, so I figured I would listen to big ones and got myself liking it in general but I dont really have a good idea of where to find more of what I like.

Daft Punk, the only one I had ever heard of really before starting to look for stuff aside maybe Air, I like most of their stuff just fine, but I really really liked "Random Access Memories" to a level that their other stuff does not approach. Is there anything else that sounds like that?

Daft Punk has never really been EDM in the way that a lot of the artists in this thread are. They're more house/electro-house, except for Random Access Memories which was like a mixture of their usual house/electro-house with disco, funk, soul, synthpop, etc.

Justice is probably the closest in terms of trajectory. They went from being mostly electro-house to incorporating more elements of disco and funk and stuff like that the more they went on. If you liked Random Access Memories, you'd probably dig Justice's latest album Woman.

They just put out a remix album in August called Woman Worldwide that's really solid and basically spans their entire discography. Stuff from Woman is on there, but also mashed up with songs they did 10 years ago that are more electro-focused.
