5 stars Heavenly and great atmospheric live album!

I am not an expert, not even a huge fan of electronic prog, and non prog electronic, i like some stuff , artists, bands etc, but that`s not really my true love, despite it, i can listen and enjoy electronic music whenever i wish, maybe i have to be in a good mood to stand it and not fall asleep, anyway there are some albums that i can really listen and enjoy and get invoved with, an example is Tangerine Dream`s Ricochet, which actually is my favorite album of them, despite being a Live and not Studio album .

As an electronic album, it doesn`t have vocals at all, and it has only 2 long songs on it, easily named Ricochet Parts 1 and 2, just to dont pay attention to the title, but to the music.

I can imagine people like me in a concert waiting for a performance of TD, strange because i have never experienced a concert with this kind of music, and maybe that reason makes me feel more enthusiastic and anxious to know about what it is , when i listen to Ricochet, my mind is cleared, this kind of albums which create such and atmospherical sound that comes immediately to your mind and takes out the noise surrounding you, and it clearly shows us a the more i listen to it, the more i like it and get involved with, deeper and deeper like if you were caugh or hypnotized i dont know, but the fact is that i love that kind of albums which make this to me.

It happens with Ricochet, but always, simply always that i listen to it, curiously i like a lot other TD albums, but it happens to me only with this, i can enjoy Atem or Sorcerer or Encore i can feel great with them, but not the same with this.

This is when i realize the quality of genius that Edgar Froese was in his best era, im sure he`s still a genious, but his music is not that great like then, the first part of Ricochet lasts 17 minutes, but i prepare my mind (or not prepared, i only leave it to the air`s desicion) to turn my memory and clear it to this album, since the first mnutes i can say that i love it, that crescendo and atmospheric sound, always brilliant, alwasy progressing, and added to the guitar and drums sound makes a great sound to my ears, the same thing happens with the second part of it, it caughts my attention at the grade that i cannot do anything more but listen to it, that`s the beauty of this kind of electronic albums.

So i think i have nothing more to say, i love it, i simply love it, 5 stars...
