Holy fuck. Tack on another album to my list above.

Tortoise - TNT

YouTube - Tortoise - A Simple Way To Go Faster Than Light That Does Not Work

YouTube - Tortoise - In Sarah, Mencken, Christ, And Beethoven...

Parts of this album make me think of Explosions In The Sky covering Dark Side-era Pink Floyd, In A Silent Way, and maybe even a little Aja. It's fucking beautiful.

thank you all, much appreciated. i think i'll definitely look into Explosions in the Sky asap, i've heard many good things about them.

thanks elmel for the list, that will indeed keep me going, and reminds me to check out that Four Tet album.

i've loved what i've heard from MA so far laz so your Thievery Corp. recommendation will be trusted.

Also look to the track "He Loved Him Madly," which is a thirty-minute long organ-based vamp. Eno once cited that track as the inspiration for his ambient work.
i'll check these out too; i've got Kind of Blue, and whilst that really didn't take me to another place, nor really have the effect that is so often written about, it was very intriguing and i definitely want to check out some of Davis' other work. i mean he was a cool motherfucker, and didn't Wayne Shorter (whose work i ADORE on Aja) play with him?

Yeah, Wayne was a major songwriter for many of the albums that I suggested. If you like him, you might check out his Blue Note catalogue, which is extremely impressive. I'm not sure if jazz is a point of interest for you though - others have certainly made a lot of excellent suggestions to which you might first look.

check out Eno's Music for Airports for a classic ambient work, or Mountains, self-titled, for something a little newer

Also, going in another direction, I've often found late-period Everything But The Girl very calming, especially Tracey Thorn's voice (she's the one who does vocals on Massive Attack's Protection).

They have a great album that's largely acoustic, Amplified Heart, and its two follow-ups are more in the electronic vein, with Walking Wounded exploring drum-and-bass and trip-hop, and Temperamental more house-sounding but also has its mellow moments.

YouTube - EBTG-Walking Wounded

Recently bought Popol Vuh's 'Films of Werner Herzog - Best Of', great collection with some atmospheric gems, been listening to it loads.
