    They are oldies, but I recc Pink Elln - Electronic Dreamplant, Spacetime Continuum - Sea Biscuit, and Bill Laswell - City Of Light (this last a collab with Tetsu Inoue and two members of Coil). All of them date to the 90's Golden Age of Ambient Electronica era. You might also like a later album: Mystical Sun - Volcanoes And U.F.O.'s

    Depends what you're looking for. 2008's Back to Earth and their latest, 2017's Last Ship to Paradise, are downtempo and amazing imo. 2000's Crash & Burn! and 2001's In the Nude! are pretty eclectic, with all kinds of weird stuff, some loungy and accessible elements there, with ES's touch of course. 2007's De-Classified is a return to their techno roots with one of my favourite tracks of theirs, Tractor Beam, which is drum'n'bassy btw. Finally, 2016's double Dead Planet is split in half, uptempo and downtempo, and is simultaneously a kind of recap and an experiment. The downtempo side is very weird. YouTube is your friend. It's worth mentioning that SotG was the hardest album to get into for me too, and is still my least favourite.

    Origins of Psybient?

    Another hugely important album that I don't think has been mentioned yet is The Orb's Adventures Beyond the Ultraworld, particularly "A Huger Ever-Growing, Pulsating Brain..." (1991). While not psybient itself, it certainly seemed to bring an awareness of electronic chill-out music to people who previously didn't know the genre even existed (remember, this is pre-Internet, so you couldn't just stumble across this stuff on YouTube, LOL). Then in the early 90s you had what was called "ambient dub". Tracks like "Spectral" by Higher Intelligence Agency (1993) would almost certainly be classified as psybient if they came out today. A similar band is A Positive Life. Tracks like "Bathdub" (1994) sound very psybient to me. Another early psibient-ish band is Optic Eye. Tracks like "Wobbling in Space" and "Far Out Race", actually pretty much most of their Light Side of the Sun album (1994), sounds very psbientish.

    Origins of Psybient?

    I've always assumed it stemmed out of the habit of finishing a goatrance album with a downbeat track. Some artists like The Infinity Project just took it a bit further and made full albums. Sure there are lots of earlier influences but then there is for everything.
