Thought I would make a thread for this. Basically this could cover anything from Tangerine Dream to Lustmord to Synth-based film scores and various points in between. More to come.

Steve Roach & Vir Unis - Blood Machine



Straight up, this sounds nothing like anything I've heard from either artist, though both have big discographies at this point and I haven't heard everything. This is basically a chill-out ambient techno album. Something say, Global Communication might have done if they did a proper follow up to 76:14 and went a little darker. Some good skittery beats in there, not too obtrusive or cheesy sounding either. Really good stuff.

Voice of Eye - Transmigration CD



One of my favorite ambient/soundscape albums from the 90s underground scene. Might be a bit tough to track down these days, but worth it. This was the third album from this group and the darkest thing they had recorded up to this point. The liner notes say "all sounds acoustic in nature. no samplers, sequencers, or synthesizers used in this recording".

Tangerine Dream - Stratosfear

1976 - Virgin (West) Germany

I like the mix of more traditional instrumentation with (then) cutting edge techniques and instruments on this TD record. Nice variety here, from the classic soundtrack style of the title cut to the quiet, evocative 3 A.M. at the Border of the Marsh From Okefenokee, which has a bit of Morricone in it.

^That is definitely some of TD's best work. They had a long run of great albums through the 70s for sure. Zeit and Atem are probably my personal favorites. I like Froese's solo work too. Prices on used TD vinyl have been creeping up also from what I've seen. Common to see records like the one you posted for $15-20 now.
