So I decided to make another "top albums" list. Sure, it's not the most creative thing you'll read on this site, but I decided to do it anyways. The title is self-explanatory, this is a list of the 20- well, make that 21- best ambient albums I've had the priveledge to listen to, from best to worst. Keep in mind that all of these albums are brilliant, and that I would gladly recommend any of these to anyone interested in familiarizing themselves with ambient music. Also, this list does not include albums with ambient influences but are not "pure" ambient, such as Global Communication's 76:14, Biosphere's Microgravity, and Autechre's Tri Repetae++ (all of which are excellent albums in their own right). Enjoy.

- Structures From Silence
Words cannot describe how intricately beautiful and compellingly layered ambient soundscape is. It is minimalistic in structure and intensity, yet it pulls the listener into a world of deep bliss…
