So, any other fans of the godfathers of electronic music here?
I only have 6 albums so far, and they are all good, but nothing beats Rubycon. Dark, mystical, floating, dreaming and sometimes quite intense.

Perhaps the most important band in my life.

I'm always looking for other recommendations of ambient/electronic music, especially of the 'Berlin School'. If there are any other serious enthusiasts for this kind of stuff, feel free to PM me to discuss and organise trades.

Agreed. His soundtrack work for Herzog's films are perfect.

Rubycon, Phaedra and Stratosfear all rock by my lights.

Also check out Fripp/Eno if you like the cosmic style.

if you dig very stripped down, very mechanical elektronika then go check out Cluster / Kluster, pure electronic landscapes and noise

Rubycon, Phaedra and Stratosfear rule.

Also check out these masterpieces:

Klaus Schulze -- my favorite is "Moondawn," but a lot of his albums are great.

Wolfgang Bock "Cycles" -- rare album in the vein of "Moondawn" and mid-period Tangerine Dream.

Edgar Froese "Macula Transfer" and "Epsilon in Malaysian Pale" -- these have been recently reissued on CD, but stay away from them since the original recording have been altered -- try the original LPs or first CD pressings.

And check out a newer band from the UK that plays in the Berlin-style:
Radio Massacre International. I saw them play a few years ago in an old church in Philadelphia. They played analog keyboards and two Mellotrons. Amazing show.

1st Portishead is great, Massive Attack is all around great. Tricky just gets on my nerves for some reason though...don't really know why exactly.

Even metalheads need music to seduce the ladies...hehe!

Their score of the cult fantasy Ridley Scott film "Legend" is by far my favorite Tangerine Dream work. Anyone dig that, and their score for "Firestarter"?

I have Legend on cd - did you know that the first original score was actually by Jerry Goldsmith and then for some reason it was replaced by Tangerine Dream? I don't have Firestarter, but I have the one for Near Dark and also The Keep - all of these recordings have too much of an '80's vibe to them sometimes... but they have their moments. I much prefer the earlier stuff such as Stratosfear back to their first album.

No doubt. "Apollo: Atmospheres and Soundtracks" by Brian and Roger Eno and Daniel Langois is a milestone to me. Not to mention a lot of Vangelis' '70s era work. Vulpecula/Nepenthe's drummer was waaaaay into ambient and krautrock, too.

Blade Runner's soundtrack is fucking great in that style. Vangelis, I think.
