4Ascension - John Coltrane

A masterpiece of avant-garde jazz - Erucu

5I Am Sitting in a Room - Alvin Lucier

Lucier recording himself reading a text, then re-recorded again and again until it becomes some space-like drone that plays with the resonance of the room...great stuff! - Erucu

6Music for 18 Musicians - Steve ReichV1 Comment
7The Visitor - Jim O'Rourke

A real nice folk/jazz piece heavily influenced by American Primitivism - Erucu

8Coffin for Head of State - Fela Kuti

One of his best works in my opinion, with a scathing attack on the Nigerian government for their army's destruction of his Kalakuta Republic compound - Erucu

9Ladybird - S*** and Shine

40+ minutes of repetitive rock grooves and layers upon layers of delicious noise and feedback - Erucu

10Thursday Afternoon - Brian Eno

A 60 minute conceptual ambient piece set to different "video paintings." soothing stuff! - Erucu
