Significant Works of Ambient Music - listed alphabetically by artist
25th Anniversary For the sake of this list, Ambient Music is being defined as music that effectively merges with the environment in which it is played and appeals to many levels of listening without attracting one in particular. The albums listed here represent works that have made significant contributions to the genre and to the content and definition of the STAR'S END radio program. This list is by no means complete and should be considered as a starting point for collectors. These titles have also been chosen for their value as a gateway to other works by the artist.
