5 stars Oh yeah, they were there. Twenty years since I've listened to this album for the last time. And certainly not because I didn't like it, I reminded it as one of the greatest. Time flies when tons of music are knocking the door waiting for a kind ear to let them in. But they were there, as fresh and powerful as the first day. Ricochet is one of the most creative albums of the 70's, probably the music has no the complexity of canterburians, the virtuosity of symphonic masters, or the academicism of fusioners. What was then? Well, it was a bit of all that, but above all, it was tantalizing, hypnotic, and powerful; you can't leave the room when this album is on. Most other music will have some trouble when the years go through, but Ricochet stands as if done for you yesterday night. No matter your favorite stream, it is for you. Trust me. It has not aged a bit. It rivals with Rubycon for the climax of the band. The striking thing is that in less than two years the band was able to release the four most creative albums of their career, and at least two all-time masterpieces, an impressive record. Only two years earlier they were recording noises for space horror movies, and suddenly they were shocking the world with electronic yes, but flourished melodies in a bombastic style that will stick in your brain forever. So powerful it is.
