I couldn't disagree more with the below. To each his own I guess. You can listen and decide for yourself. This is one of my top 3 Lps out of a 1000 that I own. Great to meditate to at the end of the day and be reminded that just experiencing beautiful is sound makes life good. RIP Harold Budd (Dec. 8, 2020). Budd's White Arcades has a similar piano angle and is a gem.

It's my least favourite of the ambient series, but that isn't to say it isn't a solid album that very much fits into the series overall. It certainly is worth multiple listens and something new is revealed with each listen. But I do at times find the piano kind of takes me out of Eno's original goal of having his ambient music be less interfering with the environment and more augmentative. In fact, Ambient #2 might be the most "foreground" Ambient album out of a series that is meant more for background music.

The best of the Ambient series, always sounds like a scenic drive near a mountain lake on a spring day to me. Crisp and echoey production, just gorgeous.

Does anyone know if this is getting a repress? If so, when? Strange how they just re-issued ambient 1 and 4

This pressing has occasional rampant non-fill issues. Buyer beware, demand a play test.

The spine reads "Brian Eno" credit only. No Harold Budd credit.

Curious that the centre label says "AMBIENT" only. See images. My copy, otherwise the same in all other details as this edition, has "AMBIENT 2" on both centre labels. Obviously there was a re-do of the centre label at some stage. Logically, one would think that the "AMBIENT 2" is a correction on "AMBIENT". But who knows?

Wooops! Ignore my last comment. It should have gone with the EGED 18 1980 version

The centre label of my copy has "AMBIENT 2" on both sides. Wondering if this is more frequent than the simple "AMBIENT" on the labels shown in the images acompanying this entry.
