1. You are clicking source above and then posting the embedded link right?
2. What i have to do is do step 1 and "Submit", then i have to go back and edit the link (I dont physically change anything) and then it seems to work out fine. The bandcamp box seems to display correctly. Hope that helps.

There are many solid ambient releases and a plethora of which I have yet to discover. It all depends on what kind of (sub-genre) of ambient do you primarily enjoy. Here is a general mix of some solid ambient albums:
 
1). Hoedh - Hymnvs (1993) - Hypnotically dark and melancholic ambient, washing sounds of hope mixed with despair.
 
 
2). Irezumi - Endurance (2008) - Atmospheric arctic soundscapes with some sound samples, an amazing journey with fantastic production.
 
 
3). Nurse With Wound- Salt Marie Celeste (2003) - A hypnotically minimalistic album that drowns you in a dark ocean far away, on a sinking ship with ghosts.
 
 
4). Lustmord - The Place Where the Black Stars Hang (1994) - Lustmord at his best in my opinion, drifting in a failed space ship into the dark void of space and time.

5). Eluvium - Copia (2007) - Something a bit more complex with some modern classical elements, a very beautiful and reflective listening experience.
 
 
6). Maeror Tri - The Beauty of Sadness (1996) - A classic masterpiece in the genre, once again melancholic and immensely sad as the name of the album suggests, like looking at old photographs of someone you once loved dearly that is never coming back.
 
 
7). Troum & All Sides - Shutûn (2006) - A wild trip through rhythmically strange landscapes that will leave you exhausted and thrilled at the same time. This one builds slowly, but totally worth it.
 
 
8). Hilmar Örn Hilmarsson - Children of Nature (1996) - This is a soundtrack to a movie so it is largely driven by classical elements but the integration of ambient within that created soundscape really takes you away. The compositions are gorgeous and filled with emotional energy.
 
 
9). The Caretaker - A Stairway To The Stars (2002) - A broken old record player playing in a haunted mansion that is abandoned and vacant for many decades yet still soft sounds of music can be heard, whispers of guests long dead and gone.
 
 
10). William Basinski - Melancholia (2005) - Another stellar minimalistic album with piano and plenty of mixing, creates a perfect backdrop to reminisce of days long past and lovers long gone.
 
 
This list is just a few albums that came to me, there are plenty more. I hope you at least find something you like, I highly recommend listening to them at night and in the dark! If you like something, I can recommend plenty more just let me know. Take care.

 
I listened to those and liked the Hoedh and Caretaker albums.  What else can you recommend?  I tend to like ambient that is dark/mysterious/scary in some way.  Also how did you discover those albums/artists in the first place?  What resources would you suggest for finding new ambient music like that?

  anyone listens to stuff like this ? and has some other recommendation ? :)
 
stuff with some rhythm in it, not just plain freaky sounds like you creepy things are listening to :))

 
Ambient music, a definition: "Ambient music is a genre of music that puts an emphasis on tone and atmosphere over traditional musical structure or rhythm." That said, have you ever considered listening to The Haxan Cloak?

Well, kind sir, excuse me for being so dumb and not knowing what I'm searching for and not even knowing what examples should i give... oh well. Thank you for your suggestion, that sounds just a bit too plain for me, so I will keep on searching.
