Great post Gavin B...but the list can really be enlarged by many!
Nothing like Massive Attack and Tricky for me. But Cinephile (which I found through here) is gorgeous . And there are the French newbies White Noise and Silence and The Flight, also 2013.
This thread is one of the best I found so far on the internet about this cool cool genre! That´s even why I joined this forum.

I've always loved trip hop because it was the 90s alternative to grunge rock and/or Britpop. In many ways grunge and Britpop are more about rock music's past while trip hop is about rock music's future. Most modern rock bands have incorporated elements of trip hop and electronica since the rise the Bristol Sound introduced trip hop in the UK in the early 90s. Rock & roll is no longer centered around the guitar sound as it was in the early Sixties when the Beatles changed everything.
In the long run trip hop has been more influential because mainstream rock & rap groups have adopted the production techniques, the drum beats and use of electronic gadgetry that was pioneered by the earliest trip hop groups. From my perspective newer musical genres like dub step are permutations trip hop.
There are two types of music: the first type is the blues and the second type is all the other stuff.

Nice list Gavin, although I would disagree with a couple of choices
For Hooverphonic I would have went with A New Stereophonic Sound Spectacular and for Lamb I would have went with their self-titled. I would have thrown Londinium by Archive into the list as well.

I just listened to Tricky's Maxinquaye for the first time a few days ago, and the album is nuts, can't wait to hear more from him.
And I'm throwing Rob Dougan out there, because I don't think he gets nearly as much credit as he should. His only album (unfortunately), Furious Angels, is just amazing IMO.

Listen to this girl from my home town
Jessy Lanza - Kathy lee
YouTube this please!!!! Filmed in Hamilton Ont Canada where I live, the guy dancing in the video has been dancing our streets for years (10-15 years) or as far back as I can remember! He walks and dances everyday like that, Lanza had asked him to be in her video and It made for such a excellent setting for this song, support her, Hamilton has a very unique and diverse music scene!!!

Tricky just keeps on impressing me.
Here he is teamed up with Fifi Rong, who gets my vote for the best female trip-hop vocalist in recent years. (She has an album and and EP out on Bandcamp, both are just as incredible.)
