TANGERINE DREAM Rubycon CD
Top Customer Reviews
I fell in love with Rubycon the first time I heard it, it had all the right ingredience to take you to other places and beyond which sadly over the passing years TD, for me, slowly failed to do. Don't get me wrong TD has made some great music since 1975 but after 1978 the style change and the soundscape were not as lush or as warm as illustrated here.
Part 1 takes a while building up layers and creating the necessary space for a sombre atmosphere. Sounds drift in and out of your speakers with potent textures conjouring up a bleak landscape in the middle of winter at the Manor Studios. Then the magic of the Big Moog sweeps in like never before and off we go into pure synthesised sequences. Organs and mellotrons battle and tease for a place in the mix and all the time Franke plays with the filter to keep it all on the boil. If you were there in 1975 I think you would have been amazed.
Part 2 heaves, sighs and groans into action until a sawtooth fanfare brings in Chris in exception mood (moog) and again we are off on a magical ride thru your imagination. The ending is drawing to a close far too quickly with an ARP2600 processiong sounds of the sea mixed alongside lush strings and that mellotron flute floating thoughtful over the top.
If you enjoyed Phaedra this may be percived as a alternative direction to the one you might of expected from The Dream. It isn't as defined or as spacey as the '74 hit but for me was a neccessary step a culmination to date of all the things they had done on one record. However, like all TD albums, each one is unique and has its own space in the TD history books BUT savour the atmosphere created by these three muscians on what was basically a 'Rock' album although more akin to say Debussy's sound paintings then to Pink Floyd.
No other group have ever got this close or as brave since.
Listening to it today, it still sounds fresh. Although far from rhythm led, the rounded, warm, sequenced rhythms when they appear are the seeds of the pure kind of techno that Richie Hawtin or Jeff Mills would be happy to mix into a set. Future Sound of London must have spent countless hours taking notes.
To any Ambient Techno fan of the Basic Channel/Tresor persuasion I urge you to buy this to discover your heritage. It aint Techno, but musicologists would argue that, with it's purely synthetic vistas, it was pivotal in paving the way.
Come and take this journey, courtesy of analogue synths, which will take you on a widescreen soundscape journey, over high waterfalls of synth washes down rhythmic pulsing pathways to rainbow light-washed clearings.
Time has been kind to this album, which in my opinion is the cream from band of sonic pioneers at their absolute best...classic status has been justly earned.
This is the second of the trilogy of albums that make up, what is for me, Tangerine Dream's mid seventies golden age and is regarded by many fans as their greatest album of this era, if not all time! Things were to change dramatically once Peter Baumann left the group. It suffered at the time from being pressed on variable quality vinyl and is another that sounds better than ever in its "definitive" CD remaster. Like the other TD releases of this period, I find I can listen over and over again and find something new each time to enjoy.
The two pieces comprising this album seem a little more considered and "rehearsed" than the previous, still mind blowing release, Phaedra, which seems a little more cold and spontaneous by comparison and I think with hindsight it's a better album for it. Each piece has an improvised, atmospheric beginning, flowing seamlessly into the main, middle sequenced sections; part one's throbbing sequences beautifully and gently fading away to the tracks conclusion into well treated piano sounds. Part two (for years my favourite) first sets a mood not unlike pieces from "2001", gently blending into some sublime sequencing, which, at its end, fades with some wonderfully simple yet effective chords into a phased, sea shore, the waves washing over the fading chords that complete this section. the album finishes with a delightful "fluted" melody that reminds me of "Sequent c" and, also, "The Lark Ascending" and it always brings a meditative tear to my eye... One would never realise that each part of this album was skillfully edited and blended from around 20 hours of recordings - this is a real work of genius, both in the performance and in the skillful editing together.Read more ›
This is musical form as exploration and discovery. The listener is on a musical journey. He or she will witness as they go how the various segments arrive, develop- sometimes in airy welcoming fashion, sometimes darkly Gothic ,and then melding with new musical elements before dissolving into the ether as their task is done. It is difficult to imagine, but this complex shifting musical apparition in two parts is the work of just three keyboardists. It's a beautifully imaginative piece of work - that however many times gets played, will never bore.`Rubycon' certainly deserves to be heard by a new generation of listeners.Highly recommended.

From the water drop until the waterfall.. this is the music that lets you know what stereo sound is. Dark Side of the Moon was clever, Autobahn too. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Wee Gerry
Excellent old school electronica/krautrock. Sounds as good now as it did in the 1970's, maybe proving that what you think is brilliant in your teens stays with you forever.Published 2 months ago by Notwen Mot
