    I love to listen to music. When I'm in the car or at home, I always listen to the radio, my mp3s, or I just pop in a CD. But there's always some songs that just don't go well with my relaxing/chillin' mood. So what would you suggest?
    Some of my favs:
    Angie Stone
    Chemical Brothers
    Crystal Method
    Underworld
    Enya
    Other New Age music
    Dream Theater
    Pink Floyd
    Eagles
    80s music [​IMG]
    Robert Miles-excellent chillin' music!
    Help me expand my list. Give me artists, songs, or even albums. I need an excuse to buy some CDs! [​IMG]

    Air's first album and their soundtrack to "The Virgin Suicides". A lot of their stuff I don't care for, but some if it is really great. And by the looks of your taste in music, they could be right up your alley.

    without a doubt Steve Roach is the most chill music on the planet.

    311 - Transistor
    IMO, their best album. "Inner Light Spectrum" has to be one of the best songs to chill out to ever.
    Any other 311 fans here?

    In the area of new age-type music, try David Lanz (beautiful stuff!).

    One of my favorite "chill" albums is Arrested Development: Three Years, Five Months, & Two Days in the Life of....

    I also like to chill to Incubus: Morning View.

    The latest Musiq CD (Juslisen) seems to work like that for me.

    311 - Transistor is my favorite album by them. Use of Time is my favorite song on the album. Second would probably be Electricity.

    Incubus is a pretty good band. I like a lot of their older stuff. However, Science is a poorly recorded album and is hardly listenable on my system. I haven't picked up Morning View yet, but I soon will solve that little problem.

    One of my favorite chillin albums is by a local band called Club D'elf. They play a couple times a month at The Lizard Lounge off of Mass Ave. They have a live album out called As Above-Live at The Lizard Lounge. There are a lot of musicians on this album. John Medeski, Kenwood Dinard, Dr. Didg, and DJ Logic to name a few. The music is discribed as trance jazz. It takes a couple of listens to really appreciate the layers of music on this album. Once your there, your hooked. This is one of my favorite albums.

    If you want some really relaxing stuff, try Brian Eno's 'Music for Airports' (or indeed any of his other ambient music series).

    You might also try the new Mike Oldfield album ('Tres Lunas' I think it's called) which, in the UK at least, also has a free CD-ROM of a music-related video game (I'd tell you what it's like but it made me motion sick - don't let that put you off! I get motion sick incredibly easily).

    I'm not into ambient type music too much, but one I can highly recommend is
    St Germain - Tourist

    Angelo Badalamenti - Twin Peaks soundtrack
    Beastie Boys - The In Sound From Way Out! (a compilation of their funky and jazzy instrumental tracks)
    Bob Marley
    Moby - Play


    NP - The Royal Tenenbaums: Original Soundtrack

    Oh yeah, definitely Badalamenti's stuff, especially the two Julee Cruise albums.

    It depends on what you mean by chillin', but when I'm sitting outside on the patio, I love to listen to Getz/Gilberto w/ "The Girl from Ipanema". Of course, there's Sinatra and there's also a great series of lounge music called "Ultra-Lounge" and each disc has a different them. I really enjoy these discs and I own about half of the collection (20+ total).
