|Some Ambient Records I Adore|
Any albums that could generally be described as being ambient.
No particular order.
Recs are appreciated.
|1||Jonsi and Alex|
Selected Ambient Works 85-92
You know you're an amazing artist if you can make an album that is a landmark in two different genres; Ambient and Electronica.
|3|| ||The Orb|
The Orb's Adventures Beyond the Ultraworld
Spacey, Dubby, Dancey, it's perfect.
|4||Stars Of The Lid|
And Their Refinement Of The Decline
Peaceful......is much more needed?
Beneath all the sound you may find Belong's extreme talent for creating gentle melodies and mind-sweeping textures.
Merriweather Post Pavilion
Ok, ok, just let me explain. While most regard this as a psychedelic pop gem, the amount of samples, field recordings, and general wall-of-sound production proves that this could very well be one of the few Ambient-Pop records.
Another Green World
^...........this is also one of the few
|8|| ||Godspeed You! Black Emperor|
F# A# ?
If you don't see the relationship between post-rock and ambient music, you should listen to this record. Or you're just a fucking idiot.
While only half of the record could be described as Ambient, it's a brilliant half of a record. The other is pretty sweet too.
Sun Baked Snow Cave
If you ever feel like listening to a 62 minute song, I recommend this album.
While the string sounds get grating for me personally, this is still a beautifully written album.
This is probably one of the best ambient records ever created. Completely ethereal and natural sounding, it is themed around cool glaciers, frosty mountains, runny water, whatever freezing conceptual ideas come to mind. While synths and piano provide the main part for most of the songs, it's the textural electronics and field recordings that drive it.
