The influence of groups like Tangerine Dream -and Vangelis is still audible, but Structures from Silence is its own notable peak, the first of many astonishing highlights for Roach.

EDIT: Yeah, I think this just might be my favorite album OAT.

So, I spent the last month listening to, apart from new releases, nothing but ambient music. I also decided not to rate/review many things until the end of the month, as I've gotten way too attached to this site in recent months. Holding off on the ratings had allowed me to prevent obsessing over checking this site every day, and worrying about always having to put out a review constantly. It's honestly been a really refreshing ... read more

I HAVE A CONFESSION TO MAKE (DAY OF DRONE #04)

I've been on albumoftheyear.org for a good while now. It's the place I consider home, and I've met lots of great people here. Some of those people I talk to on a regular basis, and some I only occasionally share interactions with. Nonetheless, I appreciate the opportunity to have met each and every one of you, whether we're on a first-name basis or not. And that is precisely why this hurts me so much more than it hurts you--I care for you, and I ... read more

This album is unearthly, it sounds like the cosmos, like stars, planets, it enters strongly into the subconscious, it evokes images, memories, it calms and relaxes, it can be considered as an ideal ambient album, an album that is minimalistic but gives away all the emotions you need when you reach for this type of music. Lie down in a dark room, on the floor, disconnect from reality, listen, then this music will speak to you in the best way possible‚ú®

Heaven on Sorrow

Listened to this album for the first time last night in an effort to get into even more ambient music and I think this is some of the best ambient music of the 80s. I adore the beautiful synth pads and atmospheres created by Roach and love the space ambient sound of the project as a whole. Overall, a very beautiful listening expierence.
