Music Recommendations

Used to be – back in the good old days, before CK decided to crack down on all the fun around here – that I’d wrap up the year with a list of the best albums released over the previous 12 months. I don’t exactly have time for that right now, but I want to at least leave you with a handful of solid recommendations, suitable for gifts or for your own personal enjoyment. Each comes with the AB Seal of Approval™, which guarantees not only satisfaction and edification, but also spiritual fulfillment. Here’s what you and yours ought to be listening to over the coming holidays:

Art Ensemble of Chicago The Art Ensemble of Chicago and Associated Ensembles
Between the Buried and Me Automata I
Between the Buried and Me Automata II
Brian Eno
Music for Installations
 Piano & A Microphone 1983
Steve Tibbets Life Of
New England Conservatory Symphonic Winds Night Songs: The Music of Richard Toensing 
And Nothing Hurt
David Sylvian/Holger Czukay Plight & Premonition/Flux & Mutability (remastered)
Steven Wilson Home Invasion: In Concert at the Royal Albert Hall

Merry Christmas, y’all.
