5 stars If you cut your musical teeth on "progressive metal", ELP is probably not for you; on the other hand, anyone with an open mind able to judge these tracks on their own merits will find this album is much more than just a breath of fresh air. Trilogy is a must have! Greg Lake is a great ballad writer with a baritone voice that surpasses most rock vocalists of all times in tonal depth and quality; a truly commanding voice. Keith Emerson was arguably the best rock keyboardist of the time when ELP were together and remains one of the greatest still today. Carl Palmer showed a breadth and depth of percussion rock musicianship that opened the squinting eyes of the masses to what they never could conceive of on their own. Though few collaborations last forever, these three giants worked together for years as a seamless unit. Trilogy pushes the envelope of how grand, exotic, and refined rock could become in the hands of tasteful masters of the trade. The music here in Trilogy is a masterpiece of the highest quality: a continuation of the journey ELP (along with others like The Moody Blues, etc.) launched back in the late 60's and 70's. ELP had a natural musical talent few in the rock business have ever matched. Trilogy transcends time and will delight generations to come.
