5 stars RICOCHET recorded live in France and Britain in the Autumn of 1975, suffers the "overshadowed twin brother syndrome". When too many things happen at once people get either ultra-picky or mere suspicious.

To explain it quickly, "Ricochet" was born the same year his world wide, would be famous twin brother "Rubycon".

Those were the days when Tangerine Dream was still not wealthy enough to release double albums, but it could have been an obvious choice.

Structured the same way, two long metamorphical tracks and T.D.'S music composition talents at their peak,this "live" release explores the many different alternatives their self-acquired electronic music language offered and the many (emotional) directions it could expand to, therefore, to be close to the actual facts, this release covers ground, that at the time, was still unexplored territory by these same creators.(As it can be clearly witnessed in the evolution of their musical language through their discography.)

Ricochet establishes alongside its twin brother an enormous precedent in electronic music in general far beyond the borders of Prog alone, they are true to the bone epitomes of Electronic Music history, that up to this days have fed zillion of imitators and made happy lots of ignorants. But sadly not even the TDs themselves could follow the act of such extraordinary unrepeatable, ground breaking and unique MASTERPIECES.

***** 5 FULL (could be 10, but there is not such a thing here) PA stars.
