There was a five year period around the end of the millenium - sort of late 90s to the very early 200s when I was listening to a lot of very atmospheric music like this. Bands like Ulver, for example. Wonderful stuff :-)

Fun-to-Know Fact here, kiddies: Wells wrote the Time machine as a warning: imagine if all people are divided into the Haves and Have-nots? Like, if there was a growing homeless population, and an affluent class living in extremely high rent cities? Imagine that! Wow, that Wells was pretty kooky, eh?
