5 stars Many people say that Brain Salad Surgery was the best album of ELP, i say that Trilogy was the best. Althought they never enjoyed playing these songs live, this album contains the best work from ELP.

The album opens with "The endless Enigma", a song in three part featuring "Fugue" and "The endless enigma part II". The song is really good with an eerie start, but the song never really got to the fans because it is a three part song and was not played often live. "Hoedown" is the best song of the album and was the show opener of the band.

ELP wrote many short and silly songs like "Jeremy Bender" on Tarkus and "Benny the bouncer" on Brain salad surgery, but the western style "The sheriff" is the best of them once you get used it.

It's THE must have for any ELP fans.
