Also have to add I have listened  to the Alio Die and many Ishq albums on Spotify. Hard to keep up with Ishq especially, high quality, prolific,  ambient beauty. Will listen to more and I am sure both artists will feature in my best of.

I will be checking out that Space Simulator album as I haven't heard same and sounds right up my street.

Good shout Chris.

Here's mine - just copied and pasted from elsewhere, so some non ambient, hope you don't mind.

Anderson/Stolt - Invention of Knowledge . Album of 2016 for me, best YES album for many years.

Forrest Fang -Sleepwalkers Ocean
Jacob Newman - Biospherica
Mick Chillage - (M)odes
The Angling Loser - Area of Apprehension
Autumn of Communion - Broken Apart By Sunlight
Tangerine Dream - Szczecin Poland
Steve Roach - Shadow of Time , This Place To Be
Robert Rich - What We Left Behind (Vestiges will also be when I acquire same)
Johannes Schmoeling - a thousand times 2
Ulrich Schnauss - No Further Ahead Than Today
Radiohead - Moon Shaped Pool
Pineapple Thief - Your Wilderness
Runrig - The Story

Reissues - Tales from Topographic Oceans (blu ray) , Dark Side of The Moogs

Still to get Oxygene3 and the new Riverside triple vinyl prog ambient instrumental thing. Both will be up there.

So quite a lot really, been a good year for me anyway.

Johannes Schmoelling - A Thousand Times part 2 and
Ulrich Schnauss - No Further Ahead Than Today

Two albums from TD men. Both seem to suit this Christmas Eve time and mood. Excellent albums.

Merry Christmas to all on here. Have a great time with family and friends over the festive period. All the best.

Aglaia - Latitude

Listened to this on Spotify Chris , lush and interesting ambient as you say. Thereafter embarked on an Aglaia fest - Leaves and Tunderstorms, Angelus, Ephemeral Blue (wonderful !!), Florealia Nocturnal and current play is Intangible Opacity . Great stuff.

Also discovered what I assume is another Aglaia - very laid back almost improvised jazz , very good also.

Jarre - Oxygene 3 , on Spotify .

First couple of listens was not sure at all. Now really loving it. Vinyl purchase imminent.

It's disappointing to see such negativity from someone who has apparently just joined the forum.

Ishq - Nutopia has been on frequent play this week. On Spotify. Superb.

Also extensive listening to some no. ware , mainly Material Object
This is dark -

And the FAX- Transonic albums, ambient dub involving Mr Laswell.

This is very good indeed. The way it is all linked together and blends into a cohesive project is wonderful.

I assume this is the project mentioned in the colabarative topic in the Lounge below or is there another one in the offing with other folk from here ?

I like this very much , urgent list .

Material Object and Phonaut - Indiana Drones - the very first Carpe Sonum release.

Dogon - The Sirius Expeditions - Strange but interesting

Robert Rich - What We Left Behind and Foothills. Both on Spotify and wonderful.

Chris said : anything over 12$ in the digital realm is an automatic "no."

Same for me. It seems usurious. I don't want to promote it by buying it at that cost.
Bandcamp themselves actually suggests $7 for a full digital album.

Have to agree with this. In fact $10,  10 or about 8 is the absolute limit for a download for me. In my view no need to be charging $14 for a blooming download. Therefore I will not be buying this or even checking it out.

Having said that I paid 20 euro for Autumn Of Communion - Broken Apart by Sunlight . That however is virtually a triple album.

Disappointing as I suspect I would like ASC. No chance at that price though.

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.
