5 stars TD built up on the great waves of ''Phaedra'' and generated a superb ''Rubycon''.

I believe that in terms of melody, beautiful spacey keyboards and wonderful atmospheres, ''Rubycon'' is the best that the band has (and ever will) produce. It is possible that this album speaks more to old freaks as I am that on the younger generation, but I can't help: this is electronic music at its high.

Even if I hardly concentrated while listening to this great album in '75, I remember that it was always a pleasure to hear these fabulous moments. Of course, some of these belonged to the early Floyd repertoire and even if some might argue that the lack of lyrics could hurt: I never felt this. I have always been charmed with the utmost beauty of this album.

Side one has always had my preferences; but there are hardly any weakness here: the whole is just fantastic IMHHO. The way was paved with ''Pheadra'', and the band just adds another gigantic stone to the building.

Although I have listening many times to this great albums for the last ten years, this review is very much sentimental and is a clear picture of what I felt while discovering it almost thirty-five years ago. The band crossed the border of the Rubicon while releasing this album; it was quiet daring a project but the result is fabulous.

''Rubycon'' is a jewel, really. At times, magical. What else can I say?

A divine recording? Probably?

A memorable album? Probably.

Five stars? Yes!
