Troum/Yen Pox - Mnemonic Induction (2002)
I'm extremely glad to have stumbled upon this little-known gem of an album because it's some of the best dark ambient I've heard rivaling the likes of Lustmord and Robert Rich. It's unfathomably dark and deep with otherworldly bass rumbling and an unfolding electronic soundscape on top of it. Many might call this album "evil" or "scary," but to me it's quite beautiful in a dark sense. In fact, it's incredibly relaxing music that makes you think of the vastness of space or the bottom of the ocean. That's really what all ambient albums should do -- inspire your imagination -- and this album does it brilliantly.
