Radiant Mind--Strands.  3rd release on Steve Roach's website label for emerging artists (previous CDs were by Brian Parnham and Nathan Youngblood).  Unlike RM's debut disc on Periphery, this one is pure rhythmless ambience.  Roach produced, mastered, and contributed his sonics here.  This is quite a dark and abstract type of drifting ambient, in close quarters with Roach & Obmana's Well of Souls.  Like falling into an endless abyss.  Not unpleasant, but a little scary during the freefall.  Recommended for skydiving at night.

A short review of the bonus discs for Neroli and Shutov Assembly:

Neroli:  Disc 2 is a single long-Form track called New Space Music.  This is a thick, bassy, droney piece which ebbs and recedes.  It's ok but nothing essential for ambient fans.  It actually sounds a lot like some of Celer's stuff.

The Shutov Assembly:  Disc 2 is not what I was expecting so buyer beware.  Music was created during the same period but save for two of the seven tracks, the music is strange and rhythmic instead of drifting and ambient.  If you hoped to get more like Shutov tracks you will be disappointed.

These reissues did remind me how good the original albums are.  I would probably recommend to keep your original CDs and save your money, unless you are a completist or collector.

Bought Neroli and Shutov at Amoeba last night.  I will post my thoughts on bonus discs after a few listens.  The packaging on these is nice--digipak size hardbound book with nice photos, interviews, essays, etc.  My only complaint is the paper sleeves used to house the discs.  All four CDs were scratched at assembly plant from scraping the disc in thin paper slots.  Maybe some people don't care but I don't feel good about paying $20 for a damaged "new" product!  Grrrrrrr....

Two latest releases on the excellent psy chill label Ultimae:

Asura--Radio Universe
Circular--Moon Pool

The Asura has a nice space theme and feel.  Some nods to the 70s electronic era.  I hear some vangelis in there.  I like this Circular more though, which surprised me.  Very colorful and deep aquatic soundscapes here.

I'm completely underwhelmed by the new Daniel Lanois CD.  It's like his other instrumental album Belladonna but more experimental and well, just plain weird in spots.  He can do much better than this.

Although I don't agree with your summation, your review did make me laugh.  Yes, Caine still looked the same age.  Everybody got perfect haircuts --maybe by TARS?--during the long spaceship mission.  I wanted to puke during Hathaways "love" speech.

Saw it and it was awesome.  If you liked Contact and 2001 you will like this.  Concerning the music:  it was better than the overdramatized drivel these blockbusters usually employ, but I didn't notice much about it.   You know I really can't understand why some of these sci-fi projects don't use electronic space music.  A perfect one would be Redshift.  Their music is big and cosmic, alternating between bombastic sequencer to symphonic to atmospheric drone.  I could see a whole film being scored  to this music, and it would fit so much better than some boring classical music which is totally generic (and I don't mean 2001 because that music was perfect and not generic).

What is some ambient electronic music you'd like to see in a film?

Maybe we should put a Kotex on this thread (now I'll definitely be banned)

Vir Unis & Saul Stokes--Thermal Transfer.  A Hypnos classic.  Hypnotic grooves meet ethereal drift.

Solar Fields--Altered.  This is probably my fave Solar Fields CD.  He remixed his album Movements by taking out the bombastic drums so it's all space drift, but still in the psy chill style.  If you like thick, fat droney bass , this will give your subwoofers a real workout.

Roach/Reyes--Ancestor Circle. This hasn't left my car CD player all week.  Take a trip back to 1993 circa Origins and Forgotten Gods, and a mind trip through time and space.  Exquisite!  Review to come hopefully soon from yours truly...

Carbon Based Lifeforms--Twenty three.  2011 Ultimae release.  Some cbl fans complained there were "no rhythms.". Well it's a droning deep space ambient release so that's why.  As the cover image suggests, music to scan the skies and marvel at the  wonder of the universe.  Love it.

Ethernet--Tanuki Dreams.  This artist's previous CD was released on Kranky (which I really must search out now).  Tanuki was recently released on the excellent Gterma label in Sweden.  This album is a heady brew of deep ambient, ambient dub, with more emphasis on the ambient.  A track like "North Temple" could have fit nicely on Tetsu Inoue's Ambiant Otaku (I consider this a huge compliment).  There's even some droney Grassow type atmospheres here.  I like how the album doesn't align itself with one genre and travels wherever it wants to go.  Really nice album and highly recommended.

Shriekback--Jam Science 2CD.  Funky,surreal art rock.  Great and.  This preceded their well known Oil and Gold album, and never before released on CD until now.  It was remastered from vinyl and self released.  Second disc of live show  from 1984.
