I didn't understand the "new age" comment above until I went to Discogs and read the "review" of the Hypnos label by some turkey stating Hypnos "poses" or "tries to be" an ambient label but is really just "New Age."  I'd love to know what this idiot's definition of "ambient" is.

Thanks for clarifying the shipping for two discs.

Other Ambient (and related) Music / Adam Pacione 3-inch series

Are there sound samples anywhere of these (2009 series)? What kind of ambient is this? What are the best ones in your opinion if I don't order whole series? Thanks...

Might I suggest a "combo pack" discount for those wishing to purchase both? 19 euros is about 28 dollars X 2 = $56 for two cd's. Also, these are CDR's?  Finally, do you have track titles and/or samples available? Thanks.  ;)

I love Discogs, in fact I'm addicted to it! Such a great alternative to eBay in terms of buying and selling music, plus a great way to discover new music.  It is frustrating that some of the listings have no ratings/reviews.  When I get a chance I'll rate some Hypnos discs (all 5 stars of course!)

I don't mind if the reviewer didn't like it, in fact I'd rather they be honest and say why.  But I can't stand it in some of these Vital Weekly reviews this whole "oh yeah he just put a bunch of guitars through reverb, nothing new under the sun, been done before" as if he knows exactly how a piece was recorded.  VW's review of the Mystery Sea release "Aningan" by Moljebka Pvlse is a case in point.  It was such an insult to read, and I disagree 100% with the review. But Daniel at MS still posted it on his website.

You're welcome, Phobos!  :)

Thanks Jim 02 for listing that Yui Onodera/Beautiful Schizophonic.  I was not even aware of this release until now. Sounds amazing, I just ordered it...  8)

Yes, I was there.  Was a great concert, in a beautiful setting.  But there wasn't much "new" music in the performance, and more of a "DJ set" of recent discography.  But I will probably buy this release.

You are right on there, 9 Dragons.  I've seen plenty of his "dismissive" reviews, and he often manages to insult the artist somehow with a "nothing new under the sun" or "simple/typical drone" comment.  Funny enough, his own music (at least what I've heard) is godawful and he'd never achieve what some of these artists already have.  And you know what they say about critics being "frustrated artists"...

Guess I didn't notice it as it was listed amongst individual artists and I kept looking under "labels." Thanks!

I've noticed this, too.  Things seemed to peak in the early 2000's with what I'd call bonafide "excitement."  Now you can't even get more than four people to list their Top 10!  But it's probably like this with other art forms as well, or styles of music.  Take heavy metal and "alternative" rock, which peaked in the 80's.  With ambient, which I'd say really "peaked" in the mid-90's, there might be waning interest due to the simple passage of time, or due to the proliferation of ambient over the Internet and somewhat oversaturation of releases.

Is Hypnos still selling Atmoworks? I couldn't find it among all the other labels at the Hypnos store.

One suggestion, though: I don't think you have enough M.B. and Michael Mantra titles on your label.  ;)

So safe to say Yagya's "Rigning" is album of the year? Noticed it's on most of the lists here.  Yeah, I'd have to go with that one for the Academy Award of ambient 2009.  In terms of sheer jaw-dropping beauty, it's hard to beat.  It was in heavy rotation around the time my dad was battling the cancer which took his life in March.  My cousin (who is an ambient novice) even emailed me recently saying he found this great album on I-tunes, yagya's "Rigning." If you haven't got it yet, it's definitely worth seeking out...

All Lotuspike's customers must be getting these, because my last order had to have been at least 6 months ago.

I started this as the earlier one wasn't as visible, I think more people check out Non-Hypnos (at least I do) than the other sections.  Also the other lists were a bit premature.
