5 stars WARNING!....ONCE YOU LISTEN TO THIS ALBUM; YOU WILL BE DOOMED FOR THE REST OF YOUR ELECTRONIC AUDIOPHILE LIFE!!....WARNING! Before and after; it establishes electronic rock/prog-composers/performers as equally relevant as an ANY serious electronic music composer or contemporary classical ones.. Yes! There was electronic life before TD; Schulze or Krautrock even Stockhausen to name the "famous". (if you lke this genre there is a non-obscure easy to get cd named "Forbidden Planets" Music from the Pioneers of Electronic Sound. An album; I hope is mentioned somewhere in this page if not would be a perfect addition to the genre) It will make it easier to understand why "Rubycon" is on top of the other efforts in this page´s electronic category. Doomed for life; every electronic cut you listen to; in the future; will be instantly processed, sampled and holded to the standards of "RUBYCON". By chance, intention & destiny .. TD created with this Art/work;...The music everyone was expecting to listen; when they played on an electronic-music album. Here you find electronics to service human/created music; but also composition to exploit the machine/generated electronic sounds; not the other way around; which was the usual route taken. But best of all great composition as in any kind of music! good-composition. It will be easier; I insist; to understand when you listen to the "Pioneers" cd or closer to age the early TD albums. The atmospheres are to too scarce and rely on the "novelty" of the noises as if discovering fire. TD already knows there is fire; so they use it, mold it, compress it and assemble it. Clue word: assemble as in ensemble; as in "serious" music composition for human/electronic ensembles (small endeavor). Before and after; it is not something you can choose to like or ignore; it is already there it has been composed; the work is more than done. With perfect grace. As if nothing. -- 5+ Stars no less.
