Rubycon by Tangerine Dream
Released: Jan 1975
Label: Virgin Records
Generally considered the band's creative peak, Rubycon consists of two side-long tracks that are entirely made up of a variety of synthesizers, Moogs and electric pianos. Striking a balance between the repetitive sequencing of Phaedra and the pastoral New Age-isms (a term the band hates) to come, Rubycon often sounds like Pink Floyd's Wish You Were Here minus the guitars, vocals and, uh, obviousness. That means Rubycon, while a landmark release in electronic music, translates surprisingly well to the rock vernacular.
