Interesting topic. I feel this also applies to some work of Altus, Boreal Taiga and Rudy Adrian along Pascal Savy's "The Silent Watcher"...
Great stuff to immerse into or travel to worlds beyond.

The Silent Watcher album is based on field recordings but somehow its less accessible and more "experimental" in nature than Substrata hence why it hasnt/shouldnt get as much recognition?

I had this in my mind for awhile, even though I have enjoyed many ambient albums from the 2000's/2010's and up until now but is anyone else in agreement that there are a very small number of albums like Substrata (even disc 2 has really pecuilar and strong ambient tracks) 76:14 for example from the last 10-15 years?

Im talking ambient albums where the tracks also does have a strong charachter to them, like for example
the ticking beat of the clock in 14:31. I dont know how to describe it. These albums are almost like "pop" ambient. Not that they sound like popmusic, but the tracks are just standing strong on their own with alot of charachter and recognisability to them.

Surely Steve Roach and other similar "space-ambient" artists (sorry steve roach fans) has ever made an album with tracks that are almost like songs but still wrapped in an ambient package?

Personally I find these albums to be far and few between. Why is that ? Some ambient albums I can think about that uses similar approach is from Carbon Based Lifeforms, Circular, Irezumi, Secede, Pjusk,Solar Fields ambient works on top of my head but these still doesnt manage expand their sounds and give it as much colour and variety as in the above mentioned.

Rasa (Bill Laswell) - Serene Timeless Joy

The only album Bill Laswell released under the name Rasa but I still like it. An ethno-ambient longform piece with a few surprises here and there.

On Saturday I was in a Hi-Fi shop having my headphone foam earcups replaced.

I had the enormous pleasure of listening to a number of my tracks, Eivior, Steve Roach, Klaus Schulze and Vir Unis on a system costing over £40,000....

Could really swim in the sound, heard my own stuff almost as I heard it in my head when making it.

The nice thing is that the shop staff were really interested - not just in what some of the music sounded like but also ides behind what I was doing and how the sound came out of the system.

These are guys used to listening to music everyday - not things like cardboard being ripped and sonically transformed - they stood there listening intently and on occasion moving around to feel where the subwoofer was focussing the really low frequencies. Was fun to see them impressed with a 2 inch movement of the cone....
 

Indeed this must have been a great experience and moment! Loved that you shared it here.

Steve Roach "Return To The Dreamtime" 2xCD

February 10th, 2018, Solar Culture's Galactic Center, Tucson, Arizona. The magic thoroughly unfolds, towards the dream, again...

Symphonious forest quietudes are amalgamated with mesmerizingly infinite and animately propelled sequences. Dreamtime origins are serenely ascending in distant solitudes and clandestinely spread across the magnificently expansive panoramas. Sparkling cyber-tech glimpses keep on emerging, while intensely nuanced audacious meridians move to the forefront here and there. The listener is persistently confronted with blossoming momentum of virtuosic soundmagic, where infinite sequencer illuminations seamlessly commingle with engrossingly sweeping ancient memories, where nebulously vigorous tribals aggregate with warmly yearning vistas, where indigenous ceremonies coalesce with spellbinding drone spirals, where utterly graceful horizons harmonize with glimmering moments of eternally immersing silence, where shimmering subtleties blend with tranquilizing synthetic helixes, where flamboyantly hypnotic state-of-the-art alchemies reach symmetrical equilibrium with the genius loci of awe-inspiring terra incognitas. Return to the dreamtime is fully ignited, the gates are unlocked once again, enter now!!!

Delving into magnificent gallery of three ingeniously creative and exquisitely poignant decades separating, yet profoundly connecting two milestones, the epic journey continues...
