Dream. Dream big.

Float. Through the sky. Through the sea.

It is vast, endless, and beautiful.

Nobody can really see you.

Produced by Neil Halstead (of "Slowdive" fame), should be enough for some to give this album a serious listen.

Beautifully relaxing. Like chilling in God's summer cottage, waiting for nothing; because in that moment, it's just perfect.

Everyone needs some Moog analog modular synths in their life!

This is a beautiful live Berlin School performance from Mark Shreeve and Ian Boddy.

Recorded during the 2013 E-Live concert series at Theater de Enck in Oirschot, The Netherlands.

Fans of mid-late 70's Tangerine Dream should find some comfort here.

Favorite track: Arcadia

Got some BBQ ribs? Beer? Baked beans and cornbread?

Then you are ready ... for some sweet luscious sounds of Nashville blues.

With vocals similar to Burl Ives and Randy Newman, let uncle John Hiatt and The Jerry Douglas Band serve-up your backyard soundtrack this summer.

The production quality of this album is superbly Nashville, but not all tracks are gemstones. Still, hard to believe there's no drums.

Favorite track: Long Black Electric Cadillac

One of the better [calming] shoegaze albums I've listened to over the past couple of years.

A nice production featuring interesting guitar riffs, clear vocals, and some memorable songs.

Fans of Slowdive (and MBV) should take a listen.

Favorite tracks: Say Something, ...Moved Away

Looking at some of your ratings on (Fen, Alcest, Agalloch, Joy Division, The Doors) to name a few, makes me want to look further into others you have rated highly, as I am very fond of those bands (releases) as well. It also makes me wonder if I missed something with others, Les Discrets i.e.

Watched "Count Me In" this past weekend -- a documentary on drummers.

A fun stream, somewhat informative, with some nice historical tidbits; but the lack of mention of Neil Peart from Rush was a huge snub, IMO.

Hey I just wanted to let you know that my list aggregating AOTY's favorite albums of the year 1970 is finally live, and that you are included in it!

This was a very big project that would not have been able to be completed without your ratings and I hope to continue this series with future installments!

If you would be so kind as to check the list out and even possibly give me any feedback at all it would be greatly appreciated! Thank you so much!

What is your favorite album of the year 1970, and could I get a few words on your thoughts on that album!?

{I’m going to be doing a series of lists where I go through AOTYs favorite albums of every year since 1970 and this is the first part of that ultimate goal!!}
