15 Real Mood Albums

A lot of very tranquil ambient stuff gets passed off as "mood" music. These albums aren't so much to put you in a mood, but to capitalize on the mood you're in. If you listen to them under other conditions you'll be like, "Hey, this is pretty good." However, listening to it in the right situation can be transcendental.
