you always see threads about music that sounds best really loud, but never the opposite...

i was inspired to start this thread when listening to kid a by radiohead at a really low volume in headphones, and it sounded wonderful, the music had this even more ambient feel to it, an amazing aural experience...

any other such albums?

Yeah, electronica too. Autechre, down low with the lights out is a great sonic experience.

It might be kind of obvious, but Miles Davis In a Silent Way is the perfect choice.

Moon Pix by Cat Power

I cranked it low while listening with headphones so as not to wake the person sleeping next to me... it ended up sounding really good at a low volume.

Low - "I could live in hope". That album is so fragile and magical when listened to at low volumes.

Ambient music is the obvious choice. I usually put on some when I want my gf to hush up and fall asleep.

Good call. I'd say Bob Dylan. Aaaand The Velvet Underground too, unless Venus in furs is on.
