CRAIG ARMSTRONG / The Space Between Us [1998]

Craig Armstrong is known mostly for his film scores but he got his start working with trip-hop act Massive Attack, so naturally he'd explore that field quite a bit more on his 1998 solo debut The Space Between Us.
Heavy on the strings arrangements, giving it a strong cinematic feel and flourishing with seductive beats and solemn piano melodies, all making Space a mesmerizing journey indeed.  It's a lushly textured album that's best enjoyed with a glass of wine on a rainy day.
