Most Stunning/Amazing atmosphere Electronic Albums?

For me when i think of the perfect mixture of downtempo and ambient synth in an album its definatley Royskopp Melody AM, so it would come in at 1 for having the best chillout and space out vibes. It did well of course sales wise, but nothing beats the tracks 'A higher place' 'Shes so' and '40 Years back/come'. Id also have to include Burial's Untrue and Vitalic's OK Cowboy (specifically for the sheer awesomeness of the synths).

Have you checked out Royksopp Senior album? It'll be right up your alley, heres a taste



the whole album is worth looking into, its against their Junior album which is more disco/dance oriented with lyrics.

lately their sound has been going elsewhere, more dancey stuff. which is fine. but i do miss the days of Melody AM and such.

you could try Tipper. he's pretty technical, tons of ear candy but its pretty downtempo and consistent. i always recommend this album, its just too good. its called 'Broken Soul Jamboree' decent spread of tracks



In the direction of Burial's Untrue you could try Nicolas Jarr. he does tons of ambient, textured stuff, minimal beats. Search his name and go exploring, theres too much to really pick out as favorites for me. but speaking of Nicolas Jarr, he does a project called Darkside with somesuch guitarist, maybe you'll like this too;


For me Royksopp's best track is 'What Else is There' shit wrecks me everytime. its really hard to find something that mimics 40 years back/come, which is an excellent track. but i might have some stand alones you'll enjoy;

its short but:

holy other:

check out this entire bandcamp - the Maze to Nowhere has a ton of gooey synth tracks and they're all huge: https://lorn.bandcamp.com/

check out Tim Hecker, ambient noise n shit.

I have others but I forget the artist names so thats all for now

Check out some Gong.
You can almost smell the influence on Ozric Tentacles/Eat Static, The Orb etc in some places.

Re: Most Stunning/Amazing atmosphere Electronic Albums?

Definetly some good ones itt, I'd like to add from Boards of Canada's Music has the Right to Children and Geogaddi, aswell as the afromentioned Burial's Kindred EP. Also throwing in Autechre's LP5, Confield and Amber & Aphex Twin's SAW 85-92 for a good measure. Hell, let's add DJ Sprinkles - Midtown 120 Blues and Klaus Schulze - Irrlicht there too.

Eric Holm's discography. Right up my alley. And°ya and Barotrauma are incredible. It's that cold arctic feel that I've been stuck with since forever.

Need some Autechre in here.
Chiastic Slide has an intense atmosphere.

Download's III is pretty good.

The Orb's Adventures Beyond the Ultraworld is also a classic worth checking out.

Re: Most Stunning/Amazing atmosphere Electronic Albums?

Autechre is definetly a worthy contender there - and maybe the best IDM artist afaic. This is my favorite track of theirs, and LP5 is a beautiful atmospheric beast of an album.
