5 stars The most striking electronic album I've ever heard! There are only two tracks on this album, but despite their length, they do not sound so boring or dull as it seems at first sight.

"Rubycon, Part 1" probably, the strongest track on the album for its growing theme throughout the whole length. Imagined early morning on the beach. Sunrise. Seagulls flying over the horizon. Music is becoming tense, as if a storms comes. And so, on the rise, music reaches its 'climax'. That's all. Rubycon is passed! Now there's just a stop and rest.

I was amazed at how TD gave the whole atmosphere of event. Despite the fact that I refrain electronic gadgets, it have very pleased for me here. Is no exception, and "Rubycon, Part 2". It all pretty much the same, but this Part is more dark and anxious than its predecessor. Pulsating synth sounds are becoming more modern (at that time), and that this rhythm later will be already introduced in music of electronic bands, such as Devo, Depeche Mode, A-ha and so on.

"Phaedra" (the previous album, released a year earlier), of course, was a revolutionary album with its unique chilling atmosphere, but I think that "Phaedra" is not brought to perfection. Just a little bit!

Definitely, the best in Progressive Electronic! Highly recommended for those who prefer to spend time with the music in a different space. 5/5.
