It’s always a strange feeling being confronted with a huge number of amazing things all-at-once. You know the feeling, when it’s near impossible to know where to start. Like being sat at a free bar, or in a kaiten-zushi restaurant; Caribou’s 1000-long YouTube playlist also springs to mind. Anyway, Pitchfork this week released the thoroughly flamboyant ’50 Best Ambient Albums of All Time’ list and we found ourselves stricken with a serious dose of ‘how do we cope? where do we start!?’
Our first instinct was to head straight for the Top 10, however, there are wonders throughout. We think the wisest idea is to dive head first into the list, literally wherever feels right and simply swim around until the lines between reality and fantasy begin to blur.
