5 stars Unbelievably 'Rubycon' sold less than 'Phaedra' from the year before.

Clearly, this is a superior album in every way possible and is without doubt the best Tangerine Dream album available. It's a dark throbbing mass throughout most of its duration and is entirely electronic.

Goodness knows how folks were aware of this in the mid 70's with just radio, television and a few music papers to promote this into the album charts. Doubly so, considering there were no singles released from it.

Peaking at number 10 in the UK in 1975, this album is awash with deep analogue synths utilising a much heavier and darker version of Klaus Schulze's output of the same era, of whom they are often related to.

Stick this album on using a pair of headphones and you'll realise that from '71 to '76 Tangerine Dream were the masters of analogue electronics without comparison.

Dobermensch | 5/5 |
