A Higher Place
Label: Parlophone (France)
One of the best chill-out albums ever, Melody A.M. glows like the only light on a snow-covered tundra. Every song feels like it's been sprinkled with pixie dust, with "Eple" and "Poor Leno" developing into momentous, glittery vortexes. The lovely "A Higher Place" suggests that there might really be one.
