Like some of the reviewers here, I am used to music being in the foreground. I used to think "if it's not interesting enough to hold my attention, it's not worth having". Music For Airports changed that view. Truly ambient music serves a different purpose.
It neither wants nor needs your full attention, and if you give your full attention you will be bored and disappointed. If, on the other hand, you put it on and forget about it, you will notice it occasionally and, just maybe, you will fall in love with its beauty and simplicity without ever knowing why. You might even have to fall asleep to appreciate it, but perhaps that's right too. It's music for the unconscious mind, and it remains one of the best, most timeless examples of the genre.
This album is a perpetual favorite, one of the New Age genre classics. Divided into 4 sections ("1/1," "2/1," "1/2," and "2/2"), it soothes the listener with repetitive piano and synthesizer motifs, and adds the color of chimes and vocals. This is the "ambient" music style, something to play while you need to concentrate, perhaps, or to relax or go to sleep by. I can also recommend the newer "Glitters is Gold" which also has non-linear music of this type.
It changes atmosphere in the same way light can emotionally colour a room. This enacts the same dynamics with sound- a type of modern classical template. If you want hih energy look elsehwere, this drifts on clouds and saunters in the air an antidote to the radio with its machine production rhythms, this just drifts, perfect for someone who has time to spare rather than be measured
