    I would also add M83, Explosions in the Sky, Ulrich Scnhauss, Bowery Electric, Kitchen's of Distinction, Deerhunter etc.  This is a genre that is totally under represented.

    We now have Dance, Dancehall, 90's Eurodance, New Year's Party, and Ultimate Party Mix...instead of making more of the same there should be more fresh lists with new songs. 

    I stopped playing this for a bit in dissapointment that the new lists continue to be more of the same.  I have talked at least 3 people into getting VIP because of how impressed I have been with the game, but the lists that have come out the last few weeks have started to turn me off for the first time since I started playing this.  Hopefully some fresh lists containing underrepresented and completely missing genres like Shoegaze are around the corner.  If there's a playlist for something as obscure as Bachata/Merengue (which I've never played or been challenged to in tens of thousands of matches) then there should certainly be one for Shoegaze.

    Hooray!!!! One new decent playlist.  This forum does work!!  Wonder if the newgaze I offered up (Spotlight Kid, Sway (NOT the hip hop artist), Toy & The Horrors) will get added to a future update...

    Wonder if my Krautrock suggestion will come to fruition too...

    The list below appears to be very similar to where the albums were pulled off to create this playlist-about 80% of the albums on this list comprise the vast majority of the songs on the Shoegaze list. 

    http://rateyourmusic.com/list/TheScientist/my_25_essential_shoegazer_albums

    The other 20% of the albums that are missing are by Curve and M83-which are two bands that are essential to a complete Shoegaze list.  I can understand them leaving out certain bands that were suggested since they might be a bit of a stretch to be Shoegaze (e.g. Silversun Pickups, Ned's Atomic Dustbing, etc.) but missing Curve from a Shoegaze playlist is like missing Pearl Jam from Grunge or Bauhaus from Goth; they're such an obvious fit to go on this playlist and should have a ton of songs on here just like Ride and Slowdive do.  Hopefully this can be fixed.

    I think "Alcest" and "Les Discrets" should be added to the list.
