Post New Age

Just wanted to know your thoughts on New Age. It really seems to enlighten me when I listen. Just keeps one cool, calm, and collected. Would you say so?

I don't see why more people listen to relaxing music like New Age. It seems that everyone trying to maintain an "image" doesn't want to admit they like the music or that they have ever listened to it. I personally love all kinds of music, but just cant figure out why there aren't more fans of this genre out there.

It doesn't involve the very simple musicology and ethnically imperical malengistes of a rhythmically radical yet verbally passé and temporally transcended lyrical content welded with historically innovative melodical material transposed and transmogrified by the angst of the Rutland ethic experience which elevates other artists from essentially alpha exponents of, in essence, merely beta potential harmonic material into the prime cultural exponents of Aeolian cadencic comic stanza form.
if constructive debate is allowed to progress, better ideas will ultimately supplant worse ideas.

I'm not sure I agree. For one thing, this analysis of a formative as a pair of sets of features is rather different from an abstract underlying order. A consequence of the approach just outlined is that this selectionally introduced contextual feature is to be regarded as a parasitic gap construction. From C1, it follows that a case of semigrammaticalness of a different sort is, apparently, determined by problems of phonemic and morphological analysis. It must be emphasized, once again, that the natural general principle that will subsume this case delimits irrelevant intervening contexts in selectional rules. On the other hand, relational information is not to be considered in determining the strong generative capacity of the theory.

All very good insights...but not exactly what I was looking for.

I know virtually nothing of New Age Music (to the point that I initially confused it with New Wave), can you give some representative examples? I looked at a few on youtube and they sounded like the music you hear when the phone is put on hold.

I like post-rock for ambient music.

As Tricky Dicky says, the first videos on youtube I browsed were pseudo-ambient techno. Some people consider the Ozric Tentacles new age, but going by the description in the OP, they're probably not.
