5 stars .and I could have been listening to this masterpiece for the last 31 years!

I had the good fortune just yesterday (7th August, 2006) to spy a copy of Tangerine Dream's "Ricochet" in the record store when looking for something 'new' for my collection; I bought it (amazingly my first TD recording) and have played it end-to-end three times already as I try to make up for lost time after realising I have missed out on listening to this brilliant album for some 31 years.

Everything that needs to be said about the music on "Ricochet" has been said (and being no expert on the technical side of music I could probably do it not justice). What I can share with you is how good the music on this album makes me feel; the sense of calm that it instils in me; the feeling of being mesmerised and taken on a journey through space and time . an experience almost beyond words!

If you are not a fan of live albums do not be put off this album by the live album tag. There is only polite applause at the beginning of "Part One" and the end of "Part Two" to give the listener any idea at all that this is a live recording. Beyond that "Ricochet" sounds like it could have come straight out of a studio.

I am listening to "Ricochet" again right now and it is, without doubt, a five-star masterpiece of progressive music . 5/5
