4 stars What a debut! This is a really strong showing. The talent of all the members really is shown here. Palmer's drumming (esp. on Tank) is maddening. Emerson's playing is, as always, spectacular. Also, Lake has one of the best voices in all of music. The songs are all coherent and go well together. Personnal favorites include The Barbarian, Knife's Edge, and the aforementioned Tank. Knife's Edge is particularly great. Such passion is used in Greg's singing, and the bands performance. Truely a great piece of music. There are, however, a few moments that keep this album from being five stars. For example, The Three Fates. Parts of this song are dull and unexciting. Also, the second "part" of Take A Pebble. I find this to be uninspiered, and it drags the song down. Despite these moments, this is really a solid album. Less pretenous than the rest of catelogue and not to be overlooked.
Man With Hat | 4/5 |
