My August 1995 review of this album:

Summary: unusual and diverse ambient influenced compilation

It never ceases to amaze me how Jack Dangers (Meat Beat Manifesto) turns up on so-called ambient compilations. At least in this album he has good company; the tracks on this disc are very diverse, representing a cross section of musical styles that approach true ambient but never quite reach it till the very end. If someone were to describe this album to me without playing it, I'd probably avoid it like the plague, but I am pleasantly surprised when I listen to it as not an ambient compilation, but a collection of songs that are influenced by and are influential to the outer reaches of ambient. Most tracks on Ambient Extractions date from the last 2 or 3 years, except of course for David Sylvian's slow 4th world tribal jam from 1985, "Words with the Shaman, part 1" and Eno's 1975 stroke of genius "In Dark Trees". Bark Psychosis and Porcupine Tree bring a space rock influence to the journey, Astralasia, Y.A.P. and Hydra supply ambient techno, and Seefeel delivers experimental drones from their better days. Warm and diverse, Ambient Extractions would make a good radio show on a rainy autumn or winter day.

I bought this album by fluke in 1995. I was looking for something a little different but what I got was an unexpected chilled-thrill from some very inspiring music. The music selection sets the perfect mood for reflecting on life or one's self.
