Rubycon is an album released in 1975 by German electronic music group Tangerine Dream.[2] 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 No.12, in a 14-week run, their highest-charting album in the UK.
