Maneki Could not resist to take the vinyl... a long time after the cd. An ambient standard !

Julien Vermette I feel like drone music, as a concept, is so distant from popular music conventions that it can reach places never explored within the human soul. This is one of those albums that can make you cry for no reason, just because it knows where to take you better than where you expect it to take you to. Favorite track: Requiem for Dying Mothers, Part 2.

pygmymarmosets I've been listening to ambient music for several years, and I am surprised that I only now discovered Stars of the Lid. This is an exquisite ambient album. This is worth every penny and more. Favorite track: Requiem for Dying Mothers, Part 2.

Northern Darkness I hold no ambient project in higher regard. For me, this album is immortal. Its negative and internal sublimity seems always present, always near. Favorite track: The Lonely People (Are Getting Lonelier).
TwilightAmbiance

TwilightAmbiance A very important turning point in sound for SotL, with more prominent classical instrumentation displayed throughout the majority of the album. There is a ton of material in here to listen to, so set aside a couple hours to fully digest this.

Favorite suite by far is Requiem For Dying Mothers. The audio sample of the dog whimpering while shuffling a bowl around...tugs at my heartstrings every time. Favorite track: Requiem for Dying Mothers, Part 2.
