Some Ambient Records I Adore

Any albums that could generally be described as being ambient. No particular order. Recs are appreciated.
1Jonsi and Alex
Riceboy Sleeps
2Aphex Twin
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.
4Stars Of The Lid
And Their Refinement Of The Decline

Peaceful......is much more needed?
October Language

Beneath all the sound you may find Belong's extreme talent for creating gentle melodies and mind-sweeping textures.
6Animal Collective
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.
7Brian Eno
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.
9David Bowie

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.
11Tangerine Dream

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.
