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, of course 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 it 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 MASTERPIECE..the music everyone was expecting to listen to when they played on an electronic-music album.

Here you find electronics in service of human/created music, but also masterful compositions to exploit the machine/generated electronic sounds, not the other way around;,which was the usual route taken.

TD in this release (as in its "Ricochet" sibling) take electronic music far away from mere random experimentations, opposite to that they re-model it, mold it from scratch, compress it and assemble it to ground breaking altitudes .

Keyword: 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 achieved, the work is more than done, with perfect grace., as if nothing.

5+ PA stars no less.
