5 stars As my first exposure to TD and the sub-genre it belongs to, I have found an audio paradise unparalleled by anything I had heard prior to Rubycon. Here there is no simple line-up of your stereotypical rock band instruments set to pump out songs and fall in line to the accordance of the listener's expectations. Instead, we are left to witness electronic music as never comprehended before (at least, for me). While I have no knowledge of the band members themselves or their roles in creating this blissful electronic music, it does not take much imagination to understand why many regard this album as a masterpiece. A dream put into sounds; a soaring landscape of pulsing and reverberating audio effects that transport the listener to realms unknown. Either side to Rubycon is uniquely creative in their own right. They challenge the mind to conjure up images of the listener's choosing, giving isolated experiences specific to each person. TD really give up interpretation to us and leave the swelling moods of sequenced, electronic pulses and vibrations to themselves. This album is essential, I think, to those who love to really immerse themselves in music and give it their undivided attention. That is to say, most of us Prog listeners.
