Silence's Albums You Need Pt.2

Hope you've listened to the first ten because here's ten more. Again, comment if this list is helpful or not so I'll know to make more.. or not. K thanks.
1World's End Girlfriend
Ending Story


Sample filled post rock meets ambient laced trip hop. The third and second track are sooo bad, but otherwise hella good.
2Wonderland Falling Yesterday
Enchanted Landscape Escape


Another Katsuhiko Maeda project. A more minimalist version of Worlds End Girlfriend.
3Matryoshka
Zatracenie


Sleepingdog meets Worlds End Girlfriend. Sooo effing good.
4Azure Ray
Burn and Shiver


A must listen if your a fan of Sleepingdog.
5Motohiro Nakashima
We Hum On The Way Home


Alot of instrumental music suffers from being too cute. Artists like The Album Leaf, Explosions In The Sky etc. attempt to make "pretty" music but more times then not instead of pulling on your heartstrokes they bring the zzz's and sometimes even bring up your lunch. But with We Hum On The Way Home Japanese composer Motohiro Nakashima manages to stay on the right side of cute. Mainly consisting of just piano, trumpet and acoustic guitar, this Jap manages to make some of best neo classical music I've heard since Max Richter, and music thats perfect for that picnic in park with your, probably unfaithful, lover.
6Nick Cave & Warren Ellis
The Road


Minimalist but epic, dark but glorious, dreary but organic the soundtrack to the Road conveys exactly what the film presented; a glimmering hope in complete turmoil. Not only that but it could possibly the best work from both of the artists involved, referring to their work with The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford, Cave?s award winning score to The Proposition, Ellis? band Dirty Three, and whatever else they have been a part of. The Road soundtrack completes maybe one of the decade?s most prevailing trilogies, while standing on its own as a modern classical masterpiece, taking its place beside Godspeed You! Black Emperor and Lustmord as creating a perfect soundtrack for the apocalypse.
7Rachel Grimes
Book Of Leaves


A gorgeous solo piano record.
8Stars of the Lid
Carte-De-Visite


Carte-De-Visite features outtakes and unreleased work of the Stars of the Lid from 1997 - 2007. While containing their trade marked ambient beauty, it also holds some of the minimalist legends' most straight forward and gorgeous material. With stunning piano melodies, and samples that add so much to the atmosphere, SOTL prove that they don't need stick completly to drone to be breathetaking.
9Sigur Ros
Untitled 1


Don't get me wrong, ( ) is one of my favourite records of all time, but it would actually be better if it had all of the material from this. Yeah, it's that good.
10Rachel's
Music for Egon Schiele


Breathtaking neo classical meets beautiful post rock. If it wasn't for the even better The Sea and the Bells it just might be classic material.
