Biosphere - Substrata (1997)


A short break from acid to bring you the classic ambient album of the '90s, one of the few you will ever need in your collection. The atmospheric tones in this release are superb, and it's obvious that Biosphere handled this with care and patience. It makes one feel so connected with nature; you really can't help but sit and listen in awe as the soundscapes rush all around you. Most of Biosphere's music is labeled as dark ambient, but I don't see it here. If mankind ever was to evolve, this album would be required listening by all. Pick it up.

Still listening to Ceephax's new release, by the way. And you better be too.

Love this album ! I have been listening to it for over 10 years now and it never fails to entertain and delight me. The music is minimal and yet so complex and full of atmosphere. Certainly one of the best ambient music releases of all time. Along with Brian Eno , Geirs' work has been such an influence on so many ambient producers today.
