4 stars One of the best albums of a great band. Starting from amazing "Hand Of Truth" with fantastic Emerson's solo, it continues with very sensitive and wonderful Lake's ballad "Daddy". I think that "Thin Line", "Heart On Ice" and "Give Me A Reason To Stay" are very important compositions to understand a marvellous ELP sound that remains up-to-dated until the end of their brilliant career. Emerson's arranging of "Man In The Long Black Coat" is really strong and adequate as well as the most underestimated song of this album "Street War". In my opinion, dolby surround studio version of "Pictures At An Exhibition" is more powerful, more exact, more "concentrated" and "more Russian" than the previous concert one - believe me as a Mussorgsky's fellow countryman.
