Whoops...that needs to be fixed. No time to do it now though... Thanks for pointing that out! :)

wow! like 70% of those I haven't heard of; they must all (most anyway) be before like 99'. cool list anyways; also, nice "top-ambient-music" thread

Yeah, it's widely spread across genres and time periods. The earlier entry is probably the Claude Debussy track from 1908 (off the Children's Corner suite), and there's some stuff from 2007 there too.

Glad you like it :D

Holy crap. This song is a NECESSARY listen to now. I don't think I've ever been adamant about any song in my life, but this is a MUST listen. Death is the Road to Awe by Clint Mansel. It really is probably one of the most beautiful songs I have EVER listened to. I've been listening to the album (The Fountain) for a few hours now. It doesn't grow tiring, the guy is amazing with his skill. And the way the emotion builds up is...fuck...I don't know the word. The ending is just...eye-opening. Listen to it next chance you get.

It is indeed a fascinating, beautiful song.
