What were some of your favorite ambient albums from 2018?

Here are some releases that I was especially fond of. They are listed roughly in the order they were released. I've placed * next to the ones that made an enduring impression on me.


Waveform Transmission - V 2​.​0​-​2​.​9
Spacious high-freq loops from Echospace. From late 2017, but I discovered it in 2018.

Max Corbacho - Nocturnes II
Incredible deep space masterpieces.
