Release date: 10.29.01
17 years ago today, The Tired Sounds of Stars of the Lid was released. The album features long minimal, droning compositions created from heavily treated guitar, horn, flute, piano, and other classical instruments. But it is so much more than a written description. In all actually, attempting to describe the beauty that was captured in these compositions is truly indescribable. The Tired Sounds of Stars of the Lid is ambient perfection and will be celebrated for many years to come.
Pitchfork placed The Tired Sounds of Stars of the Lid at number 187 on its list of top 200 albums of the 2000s. In 2016, Pitchfork also ranked the album at number six on its list of the 50 best ambient albums of all time.
