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.

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 .

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

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  :)

Erik Wollo - Stars End 2015, again, addicted !!

David Gilmour Live = jealousy here. One of my favourite musicians of all time. His first solo album is in my top 10 , all genres . As is Animals which is a masterwork. Great stuff J.

Played the Chillage - Modes album on CS bandcamp last week. On the highly urgent list, very impressed. Also love that album cover.

Hey Chris, I have read the first four books. They are in the main followed closely by the series up to the end of Season four.

My son advised me the the fifth book was rather hard work so I decided to stick with the series instead. It departs hugely from the fifth book apparently. Book 6 and 7 have still to be released or written . Mr Martin has been liasing closely with the producers to get the story correct

The last three episodes of season five are absolutely astonishing btw.

Just checking out the new ...txt release on bandcamp Stormloop - Into The Void. So far excellent deep ambient.

Also picked up the Wollo -Stars End. Much more ambient orientated from Erik.Ambient bliss, hints of melody drifting into space ambient at times. Really like this album.

I now only have the last episode of season five left to watch after extensive viewing this week. It gets you like that.

Have to say I had to go and lie down in a darkened room and listen to some peaceful ambient to recover from a couple of these episodes  ;) . Astounding.

I was going to post a link to a couple of articles relative to George Martin's inspiration for several events coming from Scottish history. However too many major spoilers in both. That is a thing to mention , if you are thinking about starting this series watch out for the massive amount of spoilers out there. I have been caught a couple of times, fortunately nothing too major.

This series has some of the best acting, casting, settings, storylines , costumes and effects of all time. It really is something special.

Nostalgia - The House On the Borderlands .

 I have been hoping to hear this album for some time after someone posted about it elsewhere. It seems it has been re- released as I discovered it's on iTunes and even more amazing - Spotify . Just having my first listen now. Haunting, soundtrack like ambient. So glad to finally here this. Preferred the original album cover though.

Haven't noticed anyone mentioning Game Of Thrones on here , which is surprising.

Absolutely astounding series I have been watching on Blu ray and now Season V is available for download on Sky TV. Read the first four books and if anything the TV series is even better. Highly recommended and very, very addictive.

Past week or so has been .....

Namlook/Schulze - DSOTMoog box 2 , vol 5-8. Diverse, interesting and excellent indeed.

The two new Alio Die and also Aglaia on Spotify . Especially like the Leaves and Thunderstorms album ....... apart from the track Last Straw which has a horrendous, grating, irritating, ambient dog whistle ( in fact dog screetching device ! ) Why on earth is that there? Fortunately it is a very short track and the rest of the album is wonderful.

Also checked out Wordclock mentioned by cvac. Like it very much, even the couple of later tracks with the heartbeat type bass drum. Will probably get this download, thanks for the tip.
