Prog Reviewer
3 stars Ricochet is a live Tangerine Dream album that might very well be some of their most accessible work, as each of the two parts prominently feature electric guitar and steady percussion as the moogs and mellotron soar through the spacey atmosphere comprehensively. It seems that this album is a perfect in-between from Rubycon to Stratosfear, featuring both the spacey, full, and sometimes empty atmosphere in addition to the steady beats that are more prominent on their later works.

The sound of this album is terrific for a live album, and it almost sounds entirely studio recorded. From what I understand, Tangerine Dream's live albums are later manipulated in the studio after they are recorded, but that might not be true. This live album is decent, although I'm not a huge fan of the guitars and acoustic drums mixed with the space sound (they'd perfect this style on Cyclone and Force Majeure). But, most fans of Phaedra and Stratosfear should enjoy this album quite a bit.
