I really enjoy putting on my headphones to "forget about life for awhile" I wonder what are your favorite albums to relax to. Just a few of my favorites: Porcupine Tree " Voyage 34 The Complete Trip" Cusco " Best Of " Pink Floyd "Atom Heart Mother"

What has been mentioned above is great (if classic) material. Here are two very recent, and rather incredible, releases in the genre (samples of each track available):

Chillosophy

Chillosophy 2

Seriously cool, top drawer stuff. Other genres are stagnating, but ambient/chill out keeps rolling along with kick ass releases that keep on getting better and better. Get on board, man!

A few tracks from each CD have been featured on Musical Starstreams (click my signature below for a direct link to the downloadable .mp3's). The Waveform label has a LOT of music like this...

YES YES YES! Beg, borrow or steal. Vladislav Delay has it going on. "Entain", "Multila" and "Anima" are all essentials. In a similar vein, Jan Jelnick/Gramm/Farben are very good also.

Just picked up "Selected Ambient Works Volume II". Very very nice from what I have heard so far. Must buy that Orb album.
