Quote from: Robert Logan on February 14, 2012, 03:57:43 PMInteresting thread.I would say Aphex Twin's Selected Ambient Works Volume II. I think I understand what it is trying to do, and there are some tracks and some moments that are quite sublime, but overall there's too many irritating and lazy aspects in much of the music (for me) to be able to get fully immersed in it. Another one could be Structures from Silence. Now, I do find this album absolutely beautiful (and much more enjoyable and far less overrated than Aphex's SAWII), but I'm surprised how it's often viewed as one of Steve Roach's best. I enjoy so many Steve Roach releases more than this one (and more than Dreamtime Return, as it happens.) But maybe that's just me.
Quote from: jkn on February 15, 2012, 06:17:11 AMThomas - I agree with you on Music For Airports. When I finally heard it I was surprised how much I didn't care for it. Some other Eno I find utterly brilliant - but I think I'm probably more influenced by later artists. I didn't really sit and listen to Eno until the last decade... Same with some of the berlin school biggies... friend let me borrow Klaus Schulz and JMJ and it just didn't resonate with me. Then again - I haven't given them a try in a while.Aphex Twin SAWII... you know - I bought it back in the 90's, I listened to it, thought it was cool but not "all that" - and then about 2 years later I listened again and loved it - and I still love it years later. That happens to me sometimes.
