Really like what I have heard from Apollo. "An Ending" is a great track.

I simply cannot sleep with music playing. I get too actively involved with it to adequately shut down that conscious part of my mind.

That's good. It's all good.

This is from Ambient 2: The Plateaux of Mirror:

I also highly recommend Ambient 1: Music for Airports, as well as Discreet Music and Evening Star, his second collaboration with Robert Fripp.

Most of this stuff is available on Youtube for preview.

This.

One of my favorite albums to listen to is Music for Airports. When days get really bad and I seriously need to chill, I put this album on and the world around me melts and I'm absolved from everything.

Odd isnt it -

I haven't really listened to them in a long time - a girl turned me on to them and the breakup was bad - sooo... that didn't help may be time again...

Brian Jonestown Massacre

I usually listen to their "best of" collection, Teppid Peppermint Wonderland, but just about any of their CDs would be good to fall asleep to. I'd describe it as a kind of droning, psychedelic rock sound.

haha I was looking at Sac's list in the other thread and I was reminded of this song... it is beautifully depressing, and a great song to fall asleep to IMO.

Brian Eno has been spinning for years. If he didn't used to live here, he sure played a lot in Atlanta in the nineties.

Here are the lyrics-




Through Benedy Glen oft at eve have I wandered
With a heart that is lighter than the dew of the morn
Her heather-clad mountains and clear crystal fountains
Delightful to view by the light of the dawn

I see her green hills and swift-running streamlets
Eternally flowing right on to the sea
By her side I lie down on a bank of blue violets
And its murmuring and gurgling are music to me

In far foreign lands oft do her sons wander
By Niagara Falls or the Prairie Grand
Where nature is seen both majestic and savage
But their hearts are at home in their dear native land

They long to return to the banks of the Lena
The Roe and its branches on every side
Where there lies brave Cooey, that once-mighty chieftain
Who once 'gainst the Saxon defended with pride

Her daughters are fair and her sons, they are gallant
They scorn the tyrant, the serf or the slave
Their rights they maintain at the point of the bayonet
With an arm that is strong and a heart that is brave

In an abbey not far from the town of Dungiven
Their spirit hovers over that once much-loved soil
Where there lies brave Cooey, that once-mighty chieftain
Who commanded of yore from the Bann to the Foyle

His statue disfigured by base alien mongrels
His name oft impaired by unscrupulous foes
Yet his soul shines in glory 'mid choirs of angels
As his body lies moldering on the banks of the Roe

Long may she prosper 'neath her sheltering mountains
Carntogher, Benbradagh and surrounding hills
From calamity and famine, great heaven, defend them
And grant them contentment 'neath their clear purling rills</pre>

Botti is great! I guess you could fall asleep to his music because it is so relaxing, but I just find his talent so rich and profound that I enjoy listening to his music. Live in Boston is a fantastic live album. I also like his album Night Sessions and A Thousand Kisses Deep.

If you like Botti then I highly recommend getting his soundtrack Playing By Heart with the legendary composer, John Barry. (Included are songs by Chet Baker).

Botti is the only "smooth" jazz artist I'll listen to and I hate the fact he is put in that category because I consider it an injustice to his talent and sweet, mystifying, and hauntingly beautiful music. He has too much melancholy and haunting melodies in his music to be mixed in with the smooth jazz category.

Regardless, a long winter night, a cocktail in hand, and listening to Botti will deliver me to nirvana every time.
