5 stars Pictures! Well, this is Psychadelic classical organ rock! The name alone makes you stand up pretend you are providing vicious organ swipes to your hammond. But aside from that, this is great. Not without it's flaws, being that its a LIVE PERFORMANCE. But this is absolutely great, the Hammond sounds fantastic, especially on the quiet bit of "Great Gates of Kiev" Lakes vocal range is HIGH, his bass playing HIGH - skill wise. Palmer is top notch, although I wish his cymbals werent so quiet, and I wouldnt mind if he had a less meaty snare (I like the snare from BSS) but he is fantastic on the skins! I have two differant versions of the orchestra "Pictures" and love comparing ELP's versions to them. It makes me feel like I'm there arranging with them! Awesome stuff, even in a live album! Baba Yaga absolutely bowls you over with its rockingness!!! 5 stars and no less!
