With 1983's Apollo, Brian Eno touched down on some of the most accomplished, stirring, and just downright lovely music he ever made. It fit squarely into the ongoing ambient music project he pioneered in the '70s, but its sounds are more rounded and melodic than they'd need to be to work as mere atmospheres. Inspiration was easy to come by, as Apollo was written to accompany a documentary film (titled For All Mankind) about NASA moon missions. Its lasting effects, however, are enough to make any old planet feel otherworldly.
