Nice one Chris. ASA2 been on all week here. There is a lot going on in the music and it grows with every listen , excellent piece of work.

Listening to Earth and Beyond on BC just now. This is very good, think it reminds a wee bit of the James Murray release on Ultimae which I love.

Other ambient listen yesterday was Guthrie/ Budd - After The Night Falls , which is really beautiful.

No probs Julio, great music , be nice to see CDs released and maybe a third ASA album !!

Been on a bit of a Prog frenzy also..

Radiohead - Moonshaped Pool LP , beautiful melancholy Prog.
Pineapple Thief - Your Wilderness LP, similar vein but absolutely stunning .

However most importantly ........

YES - Topographic Oceans - One of the greatest albums of all time, if not THE ! Remastered by Steve Wilson of Porcupine Tree. Also includes a Bluray of the album in surround sound. I suspect it may blow my mind when I hear this.

Great news for FAXheads....

Jus bought this download on bandcamp. Aerial Service area 2 . Fairly obscure but amazing FAX ambient music that has just been loaded up for purchase. I have been wanting to hear this album for ages after noticing it being discussed elsewhere. Dark, disturbing atmospheres from the galaxy and beyond. Love it.

Agree, this is really an excellent album from Robert . I have listened several times on Spotify , very atmospheric, thought provoking, beautiful music. Pity the exchange rate is so effing horrendous just now or I would be getting the CD sent from over the pond. Will make do with the download from bandcamp at the moment. Also notice that Perpetual is on bandcamp also !!!!!!!!!

First listen on Spotify to Vangelis - Rosetta

Enjoyed it. First impressions - quite orchestral in bits but atmospheric and beautiful. Will investigate further.

Mentioned elsewhere and checked out .....

Sonmi451. - Four Peaks, on Spotify. Time released sound, expensive collectors item job it appears. Very nice quiet , reflective ambient. Wasn't so keen on the "Limbic" album as found the female whispering a tad annoying, will give it another go. Four peaks is worth checking out.


Carbon Based Lifeforms - Hydroponic Gardens. I bought the Carbon pack from Ultimae a while back. High quality melodic and sequenced ambient with some beats. Warm and interesting , impressive bass frequencies !!

Interesting, will check out the Axiom.

Have all the Psychonavigation releases which are great but would really love to see the Outland series on bandcamp as I have none of these. Would be fantastic to get them on BC.

Another great FAX release is Second Nature with Bill, Tetsu and Atom Heart. Love that.

Have to say I am enjoying the new Mr Rich offering especially the title track , away to stick it on in a bit for a further listen as have been totally absorbed all week in ........

Jacob Newman- Biospherica . This really is my kind of ambient, wonderful, in my top releases this year. Well done again to the Carpe Sonum label.

And today ....

Triple S - Poles . Melody orientated Berlin Scool with guitar and many ambient aspects. If you haven't heard this yet then do yourself a favour and check it out . Magnificent.

Death Cube K - Dreamatorium

Haven't listened to this in a long time but it's one of the best dark ambient albums ever.

Have this, but not listened for an age. Will have to check it out again.

Have you heard his guitar ambient album, Colma? TBH it's not really ambient but I suppose for Buckethead it is  ;) Has some of the most beautiful guitar melodies and tunes I have heard. In fact one of the best guitar orientated albums ever for me, and that is saying something.

Here's a strong recommendation..........

New Carpe Sonum release, Jacob Newman - Biospherica

Beautiful, gentle, atmospheric ambience with hints of melody and sequences. Environmental sounds and a strong forest theme. Stunning.

Beautiful album cover also.

Not seen any reference to this newish release on here , which is surprising. I almost completely missed this until I saw a reference elsewhere. Listened on Spotify a few times now. Wonderful, atmospheric journey through jungle landscapes and other worlds. This is on my urgent list for CD, or more likely download due to exorbitant postal rates and exchange rate at the moment.

Really excellent work from Mr Rich again. Love it.

Any thoughts from other folk ?

Steve Roach - Structures From Silence, all three discs , one after the other yesterday. Masterpiece .

Then Steve Roach - Day out of Time , on the iPod , during an envening walk through the Forest, in soft warm summer rain . Highly atmospheric and enjoyable experience.

Today so far - checking out Radiohead's new album on Spotify. Never been a big Radiohead listener but enjoyed some of their music when I heard it. The new one is very , very good. Haunting, melancholic Prog tunes , beautiful.

NP Robert Rich - What We Left Behind

Just finished listening to Track 1 , the title track , oh yes !!!! Epic .

How is the second track?!?! Don't leave me hanging!

I ordered the CD, so it will be a few days before I'll get to hear it all. I'm excited.

Haha , understood. I got waylaid by the Walking Dead last night so had to make do with a listen to fall asleep to late last night. Track 2 in a similar vein of epicness  ;) both reminiscent of the Structures From Silence era/style as was hinted at. I am off to the Football this aft so a fuller, deeper listen this evening. I am very impressed so far .

Also listened to Eternell - Portals, a couple of times today. Very nice indeed, will explore more. Thanks for posting Chris.

Greetings, I am still kicking about , had a very busy summer and also have to confess to being a bit peed off about  some of the stuff posted at times a while back. I will try to be more active here again, as this is an important place for our ambient genre.

I also have to say that it would be good to see DroneOn back, as personally I enjoyed his contributions and knowledge. Perhaps if he could rein in the more edgy  ;) stuff this would be possible.  I fully appreciate that others may not feel the same way as it seemed there was a bit of previous history I was unaware of and the last posts he made seemed to be on a very dark day indeed. Hope the lad is ok and still enjoying the wonderful ambience.

I wasn't aware there are ambient groups on Facebook, which is interesting , although I think Facebook in general is a complete lot of pants ( polite adjective ) and much prefer forums such as this.

I would also like some of the Hypnos stuff to be available on download , as I have asked in the past , as I am afraid the days of ordering CDs from across the pond are over at the minute due to the horrendous postal charges and horrendous exchange rate after the brexit vote ( although Scotland may manage to negotiate a remain  ;) )

Here's hoping Hypnos picks up again and we can enjoy discussing wonderful ambient music.

My young lads nagged at me to watch this, had my doubts , but this is excellent.

Good acting, settings, characters and stories. A real human tale of survival. Enjoying it very much. Been binge watching past couple of weeks up to Series 3 ep 9.

Bring it on Zombies !

AOC - Broken Apart By Sunlight , been on constant play here for days. Fantastiche.

Current play is Mr Roach - Live in Tuscon , inspired by Richard's review elsewhere on here. Great music.

Hanging Masses is a great piece of work, check out Live at Kumharas if you haven't already btw. Some new music from Cell would be good !!

Finally got this on disc from psychonavigation records......

Had the iTunes download for years but sounds even better on the silver . Beautiful ambience.

Zeppelin - In Through The Out Door , remastered 180g vinyl.

Only had this on cassette , therefore so wonderful to hear it on the black stuff. Many Zep fans not so keen on this one. I love it. Reminds me of my youth  :)
