Ambient 1 by STRFKR made a good impression late last year.
Sounds great listening to it in a hot bath, just loud enough through a small speaker to blend in with sounds from around the house.

Great for death

Not sure whether they’d be classed as true ambient but the Warp ‘AI’ albums from around 92/93 by Speedy J (Ginger), B12 (Electro-Soma) and Black Dog (Bytes) were ground breaking for me. And still listen to them now.
