Terre Thaemlitz - Soil

Label: Instinct
Year: 1995
Styles: Ambient, Ambient Techno

Review: (

A flowing, shifting, almost timeless statement incorporating equal parts confusion and calm across six tracks of entirely beatless ambient. Thaemlitz' ability to infuse elements of immediacy and physicality into a measured, slowly evolving style traditionally bogged down by either disinterested elitism or faux collectivist spirituality figures him as one of America's most important contemporary composers, and a singular voice in new ambient.
- Sean Cooper (Allmusic Guide)

This is the best ambient album I've ever heard. Check out Thaemlitz's new album as DJ Sprinkles to hear some show-stopping low-tempo house. Thaemlitz is a genius.

This can't work in fact, that is exactly what I consider.
