Gas - Pop (2000)

This is one of the most haunting pieces of music I've ever heard. I'm not sure what my exact feelings are, but it puts you into a sort of dreamlike state. The music is quite peaceful, yet totally alien and emotionally ambiguous at the same time. I could interpret this as pleasantly blissful or eerily haunting depending on my state of mind, and that is a very unique quality. Probably one of the most famous ambient albums in the past two decades, Wolfgang Voight delives a true classic that will be remembered for ages.
