5 stars Brain Salad Surgery...what is there left to say? This album is without question one of the most pure prog albums ever. This is Emerson Lake And Palmer, not to mention prog in general, at its best!

Jerusalem is probably the weakest song on the album, but it still is a classic. This song is a straight cover of a Jewish hymn. It's a nice way to open up the album.

Tocatta- Is when ELP kick in with the prog. If you ever get a chance, hear this song live!

Still You Turn Me On- This is a very creepy yet moving song. The wah wah bass is played throughout and is a great addition to a great song.

Benny the Bouncer- This song is very good, even if it is just a humor track

Karn Evil 9- This is where it all goes down. This is prog at its best. The lines "Welcome back my friends to the show that never ends" and all the others with similar melody make me want to jump around everytime. This album is a must have!
