4 stars ELP's Pictures at an Exhibition is the groups first live album, on which they play their 35 minute epic. It was originally written by the Russian composer Modest Mussorgsky and adapted to orchestra, and now, for the prog rock band that was Emerson, Lake and Palmer. The guys are in top form on this album throwing all they have into the peice. Carl Palmer pounds out some of the most amazing drum work on the album, as well as Keith Emerson whose furrious keyboard playing matches perfectly with the Greg Lake's bass work, and his vocals. While the recording technology of the early 70's was not suited for live performances, it still captures ELP with all their energy and excitment they gave off during a live performance. While the overall performance is absolutely brilliant, there are one or two movments I dont care for. So, ELP's Pictures at an Exhibition gets at the very least, 4.5 stars.
