Good house/ambient music (bt, binary universe)

Best album ever created, see the reviews (also see amazon).

Good album, kind of house, ambient, classical mix.

I know some of you mentioned house before.

OK, thanks, I hadn't heard of him. He has a video channel he keeps here, which has interviews and music videos:

He is the weird guy with the keyboard.

Or this one.

He is also a c programmer that is trying to sell his software.

OK, well I read all the over the top hype about how groundbreaking and futuristic his work is, how he has to write all his own software, how he uses a 1/2048 note quantization grid because of all the detail he needs, so I was pretty revved up about this, but then I watched his videos and it's very pedestrian run of the mill stuff that everybody else is doing. Very very boring pop.

Check out Shpongle and Rumpistol. I think those two groups are actually innovative.

OK, now I'm listening to the ambient album you mention. It's not bad:

http://www.amazon.com/This-Binary-Universe-BT/dp/B000G8OZ16

But not the 'greatest album ever created', that's just crazy.

True, I am not listening to it in the original 5.1 surround mix, and maybe that makes a difference.

if it doesn't come over on one or two speakers, it can't be that impressive.

please post some links to mp3's of good stuff if you can. I've always been curious about electronic and ambient music, but usually been disappointed. Only album that has stayed with me over the years has been "coming down" (film soundtrack) by D-Note.

I've got a copy of Fleetwood Mac "Rumours" on DVD-Audio.
While it's definitely nice to hear a 5.1 mix of the album, it's not $28 nice.

Which I think is the problem for formats like Super Audio CD -- it's better for sure, but to most people the 44.1k sampling rate of the original Sony-Philips CD is good enough.

CDs don't last as long as vinyl though, assuming you take care of the vinyl. Vinyl in sleeve in box lasts forever, check out these old 78s on my grammaphone. But a good % of CDs stop playing after a few years. They get spots in them or whatever. CDs are not forever.

My 33 1/3 LPs, by the way have a wider frequency range than any CD.
