Brian Eno released a new album on New Year's Day. While I wouldn't say it's his best work, I do think it hems closest to his original aims with the genre: music to give space and think. Fans of Eno or ambient ought to give it a listen.

He also released it in app form as a "generative version" that gives potentially infinite music, but I'm not ponying up $55 for that!

And it's a very happy birthday to Keith Shocklee, of the legendary Bomb Squad.

The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars is a good album.

I have it on good authority that he played it left hand but made it too far.

Station to Station and Low are also excellent albums.

I've been listening to the Xenogears arranged album Myth and finding it pretty decent... Mostly I'm just astonished that it got made. And, uh, wow, I forgot about the English lyrics to the ending song. Maybe the prime example of a song that seems exotic and heartfelt in a foreign language and just sounds like garbage when you know what they're saying. Anyways, the album's fine, Creid is way better, but still.

(Can it be that we have never made a thread for talking about arranged albums of game soundtracks??)

The new xx album is really damn good. Incorporating more of the sound Jamie's been developing in his solo stuff pays off extremely well.
