Six Gentle, Minimal, and Ambient Albums I’m Listening To

I discovered Brian Eno’s ambient music around fifteen years ago — sometime near the end of my high school years and the beginning of my college ones. It’s a bummer I don’t remember the exact moment, because that discovery marked the start of a fixation (or obsession if you want to be rude about it) with ambient and minimal music. I love the idea of songs gentle enough to have on in the background while I work or write, but compelling enough to deserve my full attention, when I’m in the mood.
