The Pearl
Amongst all my hundreds and hundreds of ambient albums, this one has been my favorite for nearly 15 years. I think this may be the Ultimate Sleep Album of All Time, but that's just another semi-informed opinion of mine. When it all comes down, it's 100% treated & augmented piano music. That may sound simple to most people, but in reality it's dececptively powerful. Budd & Eno let the music drift and fade slowly, backing it up with nice little, uh... things. All in all, it's incredibly peaceful (and romantic as all hell). It's inexpensive and domestic, so rush out and get one as soon as you can!
