Morceau Subrosa was my favorite album of last year. Neo Classical Ambient Soundscapes. It really showed his composition strength. It's one 47 minute track, but there are definitely movements.
This Binary Universe is an excellent downtempo work (one of the best ever, IMO). Has a cool movie to go along with it, too.
Any of his OST work. Stealth, Monster, etc. (mostly Ambient stuff there).
If the Stars are Eternal So are You and I... Is another good one. Downtempo for the most part, and extremely good. Supposedly the 'sequel' to TBU. He even tosses some 'drops' in there for fun. Stand out tracks: Hikari, Our Dark Garden, 13 Angels on My Broken Windowsill
I'd also give These Hopeful Machines a shot. It's classic Trance on some tracks (Rose of Jericho), but the composition and flow of the album are fantastic. It also has some excellent soundscape work involved. A but poppy for some.Edited by MorbidToaster - 7/13/13 at 5:42pm
