    Went back through again...

    Trance: Psytrance.
    Breakbeat: Chemical, Big Beat
    Jungle: Darkstep, Neurofunk, Atmospheric
    Downtempo: Ambient, Ethereal, Ambient Psy, Ambient Breaks.

    I guess as a general rule I like the slower trippy stuff, but Chemical/Big Beat have something pretty unique good going on (they seem to be some of the most commercially successful...they seem to err towards more rock-like song structure)

    That is of course just playing off that website =P


    Also, while I was listening to DI.fm ambient radio they played an album called "Ambient Cookbook" that had a couple of particularly amazing songs-

    Silence - Heaven
    I.F. - Kisy Loa

    Unfortunately neither appears on amazon nor have I been able to find any torrents... meh. Kisy Loa was especially great.
