    Favorite Ambient Albums: Your Top 5?

    JUST 5! This could be difficult for some...

    And if you absolutely cannot mention only 5, why not include some honorable mentions? And if you'd like, include some links too!

    My current 5:

    1) Hecq - Night Falls
    2) Blamstrain - Disfold
    3) Hammock - Maybe They Will Sing for Us Tomorrow
    4) Tim Hecker - An Imaginary Country
    5) Stars of the Lid - The Tired Sounds of Stars of the Lid

    Honorable mentions:

    Kettel - Volleyed Iron
    Deaf Center - Pale Ravine
    Marsen Jules - Les Fleurs

    (Note: songs may be missing or disarranged in album links)
