2 stars I've owned this album for about 12 years and have probably played it about 4 times thats how much I like it (not). The phrases 'unfocused mess' and 'rip off of ELP' were my very first reactions. Jurgen Fritz's keyboard refrains are so Emerson like that you it makes me think of that fan in an episode of Alan Partridge on TV (just a tad obsessive/ borderline danger to the public). Triumvirat were indeed ELP's shadow accept you don't have the inventiveness ,power or sheer brilliance of ELP but otherwise they are very similar. Its prettyish keyboard based music for sure and Fritz probably plays better than Emerson but frankly I don't care. The songs are presumably meant to tell some story but the vocals make it all sound unimportant to me.I do quite like Illusions On A Double Dimple which was their peak (4 stars) and Mediteranean Tales (3 stars) but this can be safely avoided I feel.
