Rubycon - Tangerine Dream

   0 reviews  -  732 views
    Rubycon is the sixth studio album released in 1975 by German electronic music group Tangerine Dream. It is widely regarded as one of their best albums. Rubycon further develops the Berlin School sequencer-based sound they ushered in with the title track from Phaedra. Although not quite matching the sales figures for Phaedra, Rubycon reached number 10 in a 14-week run, their highest-charting album in the UK.

    The album consists of two long tracks, each just over 17 minutes long. Rubycon, Part One, the A side of the LP, ebbs and flows through tense washes of echo and Mellotron choirs, as primitive sequencer lines bubble to the surface. The B side, Rubycon, Part Two, opens in a wonderfully haunted way before the synthesizer arpeggios return to drive things along. Trivia notes:Christopher Franke's Moog synthesizer was damaged in transit during a tour after the album was released, and Franke himself was nearly killed from an electrical shock.
