Reviews New Age - 50 greatest New Age albums of all time (2013)

From here:

"Reviews New Age asked a large group of artists, producers, industry executives and specialized journalists to create a selection of the best albums in the genre."

Probably the exact polar opposite of that black metal list I posted a few days ago! I'd say it must be karma. #1 is SO not expected.

Just in case anyone's interested in that music genre, there are a few other lists floating around: the 25 most influential ambient CDs by New Age Magazine (already included on AM), this top 50 here for which the method of compilation is unclear, and there's also a 30 greatest new age albums of all time thing by a "New Age Review" which exists, but which I find little trace of.
