    I like music with complicated instrumental arrangement, or more simple but having some bautiful soundscapes, layers etc. This subject is close to my heart. Here's my selection of instrumental masterpieces:

    1. Ending Credits- so simple, but yet full of genius.

    2. Misirlou- the power of simplicity again; track known from Pulp Fiction.

    3. The Blue Danube- my favorite classical composition.

    4. Voyage 34- genius of Steven Wiloson focused in one track.

    5. Trombas- it's a celtic folk song with beautiful harmony.

    6. Toccata in D minor- short composition showing the Bach's gift.

    7. Kveldssang- atmospheric music from great album Kveldssanger.

    8. Fife & Drum- acoustic composition showing the abilities of these two virtuosos.
    9. Day Five- wonderful melodic post rock from U.S.

    10. Equinoxe 4- spacey atmosphere, masterful simplicity

    There is a lot more,for instance great Mike Oldfield's albums: The Songs of Distant Earth and Guitars and many many others...

    Ok, I know there a lot of metalheads on this group, so you all better check out Blotted Science, who just released their first album, featuring Ron Jarzombek (Spastic Ink), Alex Webster (Cannibal Corpse) and the drummer from Behold... The Arctopus.

    Just give it a listen. I was completly floored when I heard the record. Friggin' amazing stuff!

    Camel - The Snow Goose (all of it)
    Pain of Salvation - Dryad of the Woods
    King Crimson - Red
    Gentle Giant - The Boys In the Band

  • Try 65daysofstatic if you like a tinge of electronic/drum and bass to your instrumental rock, Godspeed You Black Emperor for a more drawn out, crescendo based, orchestral edge. Also, I can't believe nobody has mentioned Mogwai! There's also Guthrie Govan if you're into the eclectic, virtuoso guitarist thing, and Praxis for a more funk metal vibe. All highly recommended.

    Godspeed You! Black Emperor as a general.

    Our Happiest Days Slowly Began to Turn into Dust - Red Sparowes

    Burning Sky - Porcupine Tree (love that stair guitar)

    Weathered Stone
    Daylight Burn
    for random electronic. Weathered Stone is weird, but so interesting.

    The Dance of Eternity is easily their best instrumental.

    That's all I can see now...
