Loc: Melbourne, Australia
Most of the ambient music I listen to started on the (now defunct) Private Music label in the '80's. Arists such as Yanni, Patrick O'Hearn, Suzanne Ciani and Jerry Goodman. Also J-M Jarre, Delerium, Kitaro, Vangelis and Global Communications' 76:14 album.

I'll be seeing them tonight in Birmingham. First time since the disastrous Wolves gig in Dec 2006. I am so looking forward to it but have to brave the hurricane currently blowing across the Midlands to get there.
This afternoon I am listening to Love And Rockets (Sorted! - the best of), Talk Talk (Laughing Stock) and The Cult (Love). Low Life & Technique on the way to the gig though.
Latest moby Album destroyed, certainly captures that late night in hotels it is themed around, for those who travel a lot. No track as good as mistake on the last album though! Also new morten harket album, best of his solo albums IMHO

Someone knock me to my senses!!!
They can get along nicely together. I rarely listen to whole albums (except when they're brand new). I like to load a CD full of MP3s of my favorite tracks and put it on random play in my car. It's like having my own radio station which never plays anything I don't like.
Most of my favorite music in recent years has been coming from Germany. I call Alphaville my "other favorite band" (besides Ultravox), and !distain is another that I like. Here are tracks from each of their latest albums...
I'm just shocked that I have found another band that I can listen to 24/7. Those bands are very rare in my case - in fact (up until now) UV have been the only band in that category. Pink Floyd - could almost be another.
I might listen to CDs of other groups/singers a couple of times in a row but the CD wouldn't be on repeat looping...so I am shocked to find another band/voice that could equal UV.
Does anyone else think that Wolfsheim's artwork for Dreaming Apes must have been heavily influenced by John Foxx's Cathedral Oceans? Or is it just me?
