4 stars Tangerine Dream - Ricochet (1975)

Electronic progressive music has never been one of my most cherished genres, but I must admit I like to listen to the few records I have in my collection. Last week I bought a vinyl of this celebrated live album of Germany's biggest electronic act, Tangerine Dream. I must say I like it a lot.

Seventies electronic music is often a mix of minimal electronic loops, some drums and some psychedelic or atmospheric effects. Here you'll find nothing to shocking - perhaps some electric guitar notes - yet both sides seem to have a great atmosphere and a fresh & inspired feel. The charm is the mysterious non-human sound, which is enriched by the feeling of this being a live concert. The recording quality is great.

I'v been thinking abou this, but there's not a lot to say actually, four stars. Recommended to fans of electronic music and the German progressive scene.
