my top 20 ambient albums at the moment

Over on mnmlssgs they were rightly having a whinge at the all-time-top-20 ambient albums and associated desciptions.

I quickly made my list without thinking too deep about it, mostly music i have been listening to for the last couple of months. It dawned on me whether they develop the lists around the concepts of the albums or just listening pleasure. Certainly some of the greatest albums are highly intelectual (i love spelling that wrong) conceptual works whereas some are genius noodles. I also wonder about the wide variety of music people are lumping into the ambient genre. Then again i was almost going to suggest druqs.
