4 stars Always love this album, is a great musical work. Keith Emerson was at his best (the credits tells that he write all the music) and Cozzy Powell, gave to the band a fresh new sound, less musical than Palmer but really powerfull, and I like too much this addition. By the other side, Greg Lake was in a shouting mode of sing, which fits well with the music. The opening Score is a perfect modern prog track, full of all this Emerson's keyboard pirotechnic, pompous and which much power, just an excellent piece that never tires me. The big drum sound and the superb vocalization of Lake complete the circle in this track. The other highlight is the most known Touch and go, simply amazing. The intro is killer, and all in all in this track is perfect too. It has only one problem, it's too short. The other prog number is the instrumental Mars, bringer of war. Not an ELP track, but an adaptation of a Gustav Holst, this piece is mainly a combination of sound impacts. The rest of the album is a group of good songs, between which I can stand out The Miracle with a good hammond work of Emerson, Love blind wiht a great keyboard solo or the ballad Lay down yor guns. The bonus tracks are good too, specially The Loco Motion, a well done instrumental piece. Highly reccomendable. Four stars.
