Music Has The Right To ChildrenUnited Kingdom Boards Of Canada
The vibes these guys pull off have no need to be explained really. It's all there, like a film. Better still, like a Discovery Channel documentary of the 90's. Beauty worked in mesmerizing pastel hazy colors, making childhood, adolescence, adulthood and even old age nostalgic. A good reminder that we aren't going anywhere really, and nature will still be here when every inch of our DNA pass.

Selected Ambient Works 85-92United Kingdom Aphex Twin
This record's sound could be better exemplified through the name of another - rather mediocre album, ancient melodies from the future.
