Tetsu Inoue - Inland , having had the iTunes download for years finally got the silver disc for Christmas.

Stunningly beautiful ambient mastery of the highest order . Wherever you are Tetsu I hope all is well.

I so agree. Tetsu Inoue is (was?) truly one of the finest artists in the entire world of ambient music. Inland is a masterpiece. Such a unique style, so intimate, subtle, warm and fuzzy in a very pleasant way.

Klaus Schulze - Moondawn

Floating, forever one of the greatest moments in electronic music, is a troubled recording, for the perfect version does not exist.
The original CD release has way too much reverb, but the added mellotron choir is a very nice touch, while the original master/rerelease of Moondawn is a little too dry to my tastes and lacks the lovely mellotron.

Absolutely wonderful melodic vocal trance. It's just too good.

And another banging tune:

Steve Roach & Vir Unis - Blood Machine

A favorite. Still fresh enough. "Sense" is amazing.

I think there were plans to do a re-release on I'm pretty sure I've read about it years ago. Too bad it never happened.

Not a big fan of this album either. It's nice but just not very convincing and I don't like the wailing guitar. Some of the sequences are nice though and I do love the last track!

I agree Yearning is one of his best, along with Trances/Drones, Numena, Soma, Stalker, Fissures.

Anton Bruckner - Symphony No. 8 - Adagio

Music doesn't get any better than this, period. It just takes time to hear it. :)

Ashra - New Age of the Earth CD

Great album, my favorites are Deep Distance and Nightdust. The last one is a stunning piece.
Inventions for Electric Guitar and E2-E4 are also fantastic.

Ravel - Le Tombeau de Couperin orchestrated

My favorites are Prelude and Toccata

Thanks all, some lovely music. I need to listen more to Max Corbacho! Some suggestions are a bit gentle compared to Roach' more dramatic sound in The Eternal Expanse.

I really like track 1 and 3. Only Roach creates those kind of vibes.
I don't care much for the the raw sounding, basic sequences on Skeleton Passage. I'll listen to Redshift for phat, in your face sequences. Steve Roach is better at weaving more gentle and intricate patterns, such as Arc of Passion and Spiral Meditations.

Tetsu Inoue - Organic Cloud

Chill In, Chill Out & Ring of Power -> A glorious pinnacle moment in ambient music.

A golden oldie.
With respect to the other artists featured on the terrific 1998 compilation "The Ambient Expanse", the finale from Steve Roach is quite something else.

I've been listening to this piece many times during the last year. Also while commuting, working etc. A few reviewers found it a little bland and uninspired. They are not hearing it. It takes time to get into.

It's one of the most dynamic and richly layered pieces Steve has composed. I'd call it a "tone painting". While it lingers in the same harmonic zone, the key is in its subtleties. There's a feeling of ebb and flow, of space and expansion that I've rarely heard elsewhere. Near the end, sound becomes pure emotion. Truly majestic.
Play it LOUD!

Any suggestions for pieces with a similar feel (that are not by Steve Roach)?

"In the next newsletter we have big news to announce on BioSonic, an amazing collaboration with UK-based electronic artist Robert Logan, four years in the making. Stay tuned!"

Seems very interesting!

Can't make a top 10 for 2015 but so far my favorites include:

Yen Pox - Between the Horizon and the Abyss
Mathias Grassow - Wisdoom
Steve Roach & friends - Monuments of Ecstasy
