I'm interested in any instrumental rock albums that contain elements of dance rock, though not necessarily the disco-style hi-hat work or basslines that a lot of that genre contains. Ideally focusing more on the overall sound and beat than on strong melodies; please, no Explosions in the Sky style epic buildups with intertwining guitars playing melodies. That just ends up distracting me or getting on my nerves. Box-set instrumental versions of classic albums are okay too; basically, I'm looking for what a full-mix of a "normal" rock album might sound like if the vocals were left out and not replaced with instruments carrying a melody.
