    a while back i got into listening to the ambient stations on winamp.... wonderful chill music with little lyrics.

    anyways, id like to find some full albums but have absolutely no idea what artists to look for or which albums to get.

    any help? :x:

    Once I get back home, I'll post some of my favorite chillout or ambient recommendations. I actually put together a 2cd chillout/triphop compilation that I can send you.

    Not sure if it's what you're looking for, but Explosions In The Sky does it for me.

    I was gonna mention them, but he said something about vocals. In any case, I fucking love these guys.

    BTW, I can give you some EITS over AIM if you want.

    Explosions in the sky is a great mostly upbeat ambiant band, Godspeed! You Black Emperor is like a darker version with longer songs. I personally like Godspeed! more. However, if your into electronic music at all, Solar Stone - Seven Cities [Atlantis Mix] is probobly the undisputed greatest ambiant album ever, I highly recommend it.
