Selected Ambient Works Volume 2
1.  Selected Ambient Works Volume 2 by Aphex Twin

$14.60   Used & New from: $4.97
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (214 customer reviews)

Brap
2.  Brap by Skinny Puppy
The list author says:
  "A two-disc set containing Back and Forth Vols. 3 and 4. Vol. 3 is the one for sleeping to. 'Yo Yo Scrape' kind of wakes you up a little, but I rarely ever make it through 'Carry.'"
Used & New from: $0.68
4.9 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (14 customer reviews)

Doa
3.  Doa by Throbbing Gristle
The list author says:

Before Buildings Fell
4.  Before Buildings Fell by Black Tape For A Blue Girl
The list author says:
  "Amazon people gave this horrid reviews. It's really not a good example of what the band sounds like, but I like it. I usually listen to it when I'm reading, but especially when I'm SLEEPING."
$8.88   Used & New from: $0.99
3.3 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (10 customer reviews)

And All That Could Have Been
5.  And All That Could Have Been by Nine Inch Nails
The list author says:
  "The second disc of this set is the one that is absolutely lovely for sleeping to. Particularly the last two songs. Let's hope Trent makes more of this sleeping music."
Used & New from: $22.99
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (95 customer reviews)

Back & Forth Series II
6.  Back & Forth Series II by Skinny Puppy
The list author says:
  "I doubt many people would consider this a good sleeping album, but it works for me. Like I said, anything with lots of dialogue samples. Just as good when you're awake."
Used & New from: $4.22
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (13 customer reviews)

Cold
7.  Cold by Lycia
The list author says:
  "Spooky natural music with ambient electronic guitars and lullabye bass. Long songs too. I'm usually out before the end of the first track."
Used & New from: $3.93
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (15 customer reviews)

Selected Ambient Works 85-92
8.  Selected Ambient Works 85-92 by Aphex Twin
The list author says:
  "DEFINITELY nowhere near as good sleeping music as it's sequel. A little too dancey, but it still does the trick."
Used & New from: $17.95
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (101 customer reviews)

Exciter
9.  Exciter by Depeche Mode
The list author says:
  "For a while I could only listen to this album while I was sleeping. Now I pretty much only listen to it awake. Takes a lot of listens to grow on you."

La Luna
10.  La Luna by Sarah Brightman
