Is this ambient?

It's not in the "Soundcape"/Eno-esque school but it's often labeled as such, and it's god-tier.

I'd say Yanqui U.X.O by Godspeed is right when music stops being ambient. anything slower is fair game.

and go home anon you're drunk. Disintegration Loops is probably the most important piece of music recorded since Stravinsky's "The Rite of Spring"
>>
>>51008930
All the 9/11 talk bores me to death, but the fucking music. It's devastating and uplifting and it stirs something strong in me.
>>
>>51009222
yea the 9/11 shit kinda can distract from the music but its forever inherently connected. Honestly, the coincidence between Disintegration Loops and 9/11 is like a Paul Thomas Anderson 'Magnolia' coincidence...its honeslty just too powerful a message. to quote Leyland Kirby, "It breaks my heart each time"
>>
>>51008930
>Disintegration Loops is probably the most important piece of music recorded since Stravinsky's "The Rite of Spring"
i actually don't know what to say, that's so wrong. it's very beautiful either way though, I felt really great finishing it, cleansed or something

Thanks
>>
>>51010250
I said probably and its all a matter of opinion anyways. Regardless, I only said that for the mere factor of its irreplacable factor of 9/11/. Its a 'Magnolia' type of coincidence that leaves one to think that it cannot be just a mere coincidence. Either way, its truly a profound and emotionally gripping piece of music and statement

Havent listened to much but my top 5 are
1. SleepResearch_Facility - Deep Frieze
2. Carbon Based Lifeforms - Twenty Three
3. Irezumi - Endurance
4. A winged Victory for the Sullen S/T
5. 36 - Memories in Widescreen (probly not ambient like his others so subtract for any other 36 album) Its great though.

These are mostly bandcamp based, havent listened to many 'mainstream' ambient albums, but now I have some albums to work on thanks to this thread.

There are more albums listed here than just those three. Many albums in this thread that are great that you might not have listened to yet. Albums by Biosphere, Eno, SotL and Basinski will all be posted in every ambient thread, because they are good.
