"Pitiful" has a pretty amazing music video. Far from relaxing music, but you're right. The lyrics are powerful. "Silence" "About a Burning Fire" and "The Great Despression" were amazing cds!


I'm in love with that song atm, so much so that i'm not even ready to check out some of their other work.

I actually find Pitiful relaxing, i find rock in general to be quite uplifting in a way. I'm weird though, i can listen to almost anything and find some beauty in it.

I second Shpongle or really anything from the Twisted Records label(although I have picked up some massive symbolism at both their live shows and in their artwork/music), huge fan of Sigur Ros very beautiful and moving music, I really enjoy Jon Hopkins and his collaboration with King Creosote, Diamond Mine. Jonsi from Sigur Ros also released a solo album titled Go which is pretty up beat. Ulrich Schnauss is also incredible, Bluetech (any), Yggdrasil's Prose Edda, and anything from Tyler Smith commonly Androcell is pretty amazing. If you like downtempo/dub check out Ott specifically his album Skylon is top quality stuff. :)


A few choice selections :mrgreen:

Myself I usually go for chillstep or progressive house.
"When I became," said he, "the becoming became.
I have become the becoming.
I am one seeing myself, divided.
I am two and four and eight.
I am the universe in diversity.
I am my transformations.
This is my coming together.
Here are my selves become one."

That game's whole score is genius.


A song I find to be uplifting:

“It is the... mass media which makes possible the use of propaganda techniques on a societal scale. The orchestration of press, radio and television to create a continuous, lasting and total environment renders the influence of propaganda virtually unnoticed precisely because it creates a constant environment.”
~ Jacques Ellul

I second DCD. This song makes me involuntarily begin to dance.

I also second most RPG music. The music of Xenoblade is fantastic. Some of the best themes I've ever heard.

Along with Chrono Trigger of course. (Yeah, still makes me think of what could have been years ago with Resurrection. :( Curses to you, Square Enix!)
