Alva Noto + Ryuichi Sakamoto's UTP album from 2009 is fantastic. There are few flaws here and there but it's definitely one of the best ambient albums from the last couple of years.

 

 

Wow this is intense. When the first drum sound hit me in Alva Noto + Ryuichi Sakamoto – attack/transition I was pretty scared suddenly. This never happend before with a track :blink:

I think Cosmos is quite fine unedited.

 

Hells no. I never listened to any of the more ambient-ish tracks from the album (Cuerpo Celeste and Oort) before I removed all the annoying bits and pieces.

?!?

 

Some people.

Lopus - Glow

 

 

 

Someone here actually turned me onto it about a year ago...I think the artist distributes it free as well. My favorite.

 

Artist's name is Aki Haapaniemi... he also records as "Dak"... let me know what you think if you listen to Glow, or if you've heard it before... and thanks so much to the person who suggested it originally.

Every fucking one of those other Eno Ambient series albums is better than Music for Airports. Even Ambient 3, Laraaji the guy w/ the zither is better than Ambient 1. Soulless robotic process theory record. Absolute worst genre defining record of all time. :facepalm:

hmmm, whilst i don't necessarily agree, i do think that discreet music is better than any of the 'ambient' series.

I haven't found anything better than the Brian Eno / Harold Budd collaborations but I can't really pick a single track so here are two songs I have treasured for years

Refinement of the Decline and Tired Sound of Stars of the Lid by Stars of the Lid goes hand in hand with everything Gas has released as the top-tier of ambient music IMO.

Can't post them cause they're too long.

Echospace - the second disc of Liumin is excellent ambient. Fantastic mood.

Alva Noto + Ryuichi Sakamoto - Vrioon (which you can find excerpts of on youtube, but it doesn't survive the compression very well at all).

      Andrea Porcu (Music For Sleep project) - New Values

      "In recent years, Andrea Porcu has been responsible for some of the most immersive, slowly unfurling ambient music around - much of it inspired by a combination of much-needed musical escapism and a desire to create music that would aid self-meditation. New Values, his latest longform piece, arrives with little or no explanation, other than a simple sentence about "listening to the essence of fading light". Beginning with the dull tones of tape hiss and a distant electric piano, the 46-minute piece quietly builds in waves, introducing long, lingering chords and drifting electronic motifs to accompany Porcu's fluid, slow-motion keys. It feels like lazy, languid music for similarly stunning, drawn-out sunsets, with all the warmth and comfort of a soft-touch blanket. In a word: stunning.."
