About a year ago I did a mix of my favorite ambient artists of all time. I have been meaning to do a mix of my favorite ambient albums ever since. And now here it is.
I did not go back and look at my favorite artist list. I sorted through my ambient collection and came up with my fav albums. Then I compared the two lists and not surprisingly they are almost identical. Basically I substituted Scott Solter for Alio Die when I made the fav album list.
Choosing my fav Eno album or SOTL or Steve Roach albums is difficult. I usually ended up going with the one that I play the most.
Here's my top ten fav ambient albums of all time(in the order they appear in the mix):
Scott Solter - One River
Stars of the Lid - Avec Laudenum
Maps & Diagrams - Get Lost
Brian Eno - On Land
Loscil - First Narrows
Sonmi451 - Spectrum
Steve Roach - The Dream Circle
Kyle Bobby Dunn - A Young Person's Guide to Kyle Bobby Dunn
Budd & Eno - The Pearl
William Basinski - Disintegration Loops
