I bought this CD 15 years ago when I was just getting into ambient music, it's reputed to be a classic. I found it really disappointing, some nice textures, but predicable plodding melodies which simply couldn't engage my interest. I recently had another listen 15 years later and came to the same conclusion. I wanted to like it, but I honestly can't understand what all the hype is about. This is the most uninteresting release I've heard in the ambient genre

My daughter was born to this LP so it will always be intrinsically linked with that beautiful life changing experience.

Even without that, i still consider this album a masterpiece. Selected Ambient Works deservedly gets a lot of credit but Mr D James is a bit of a one trick pony in comparison to the sprawling works and sheer variety of output from Tom Middleton and (and more importantly) Mark Pritchard.

Got to be one of the best ambient albums that I have owned since day one, and it's never left my collection. Real head music, for listening pleasures to forget everything...5/5

8:07 into 5:23 is the soundtrack to a sweet one-night-stand. The fling is never going to work, it will be over in the morning, but all you can focus on is the moment. The fact it will not last makes it even more cherishable, as well as nostalgic (oh! yes, there are tons of nostalgia on display) and intense. And when you think it is time to part, the music decides you are on for round two -- the final embrace.
Tangerine Dream knew what they were doing, when they composed Love On A Real Train for Risky Business (although inspired by Reich, it is far from a cover). Global Communications perfected it by stretching the three-minute track into a legendary thirteen-minute novel. Immortal.

This release is divine. Really, really special. Probably the best fusion of sparse beats (when available) with drifting ambience that is constructed in a very clever and inventive way, which is why it is a joy to listen to over and over again. Crucially, this was released in 1994, a year i remember as the big records companies, stung by not picked up on House, rave and baggy quickly enough to harvest the money, were avid to push Ambient and IDM (hate that term) as the new big thing. Remember virgin's spiffing AMBT series launched that year? This was when there was the frisson of excitement and possibilities in the zeitgeist, and experimentalism was bankrolled. Not like now, alas. So this is very much of it's time and a leading contender for the forerunner, along with Aphex, Seefeel's 'Quique', and Irresistible Force's 'Flying High', and The Orb, of the perfect time(less) capsule; and also transcends it by being a gem that comes up fresh as paint each listen.

I don't even deserve to post a review here. I feel so small and void compared to this outstanding release. Like a breakfast kiosk against a skyscraper.

If someone follows (or have read) my reviews, then either he or she knows that I say this quite often, but let's be honest: this is art. Period. People obviously have opinions, I know a few guys around who have found this mediocre or poor, but...respect this release please. There is a certain reason why 76:14 comes up in literally all "top XY ambient albums of all time" lists, general electronic music recommendations, why this one is rated at 4.72 / 5 right know, based on 870 ratings (and no, it is not hype).

Call me stupid, call me small-minded, but albums like this one always make me realize one of the aspects of life: it has this splendid abstraction called music. Music is something that you either like or don't. Generally speaking, this is music, but - and this is the point in my opinion - if you enjoy it, you will enjoy it big time. This is a higher state...I'm a dude in his early twenties, so, obviously, I won't cry, but deep inside it really drives me there.

I'm not sure how well this one aged, and frankly I don't care. I have discovered it like eight years ago, I've gone through the discography of BoC, Mr. Eno, Aphex Twin, Autechre, Amon Tobin, you name it, and this LP stayed with me; so, when it comes to me, it stood the the test of time, definitely. I have never even considered the option that this one is outdated or redundant these days. It's an everlasting ordinance of ambient music. I highly recommend this to anyone, irregardless of age, mood and musical interest.

5 / 5, uplifting

Favourites: can't point out a single track, this is what came to my mind right now. Ask me a minute later, and this would be different:

- 9 : 25
- 7 : 39
- 9 : 39
- 4 : 14

Thanks for reading.

Music can be divided essentially into two categories. Beautiful and ugly. You decide where to place 76.14. Now begin to talk about the album. First, it is incorrect to talk about music when it comes to 76.14.
76.14 is a treaty, a unique document. The music contained in this document represents the substance, the highest level ever achieved of electronic music. Throughout your life you will hear lots of music, good, bad, good quality, creative. But you will never experience the sensations of deep intimacy and lightness, the proximity of the unknown and the very meaning of life in the universe such as the sound of this masterpiece. This album is absolutely transcends any earthly categorization and classification of what can be called music and in today's music scene this album is unique and unrepeatable. Unmatched.
