Sven Grünberg - OM (1988)
Musically, the synthesizers are digital but well utilised, suffusing the whole album with an eerie atmospheric feel and employing just occasional use of a sequencer or an unintrusive rhythm track. The sound is fleshed out by other little bits of percussion and ethnic instrumentation - is that a koto on Peegeldused (Reflections) that brings China/Bladerunner to mind? Anyhow, can't recommend this highly enough to anyone who likes Vangelis, and anyone who enjoys drifty, atmospheric synth should definitely give it a go.
