4 stars The second ELP album is a far more cohesive effort than the first. First you have the master work of Tarkus on side 1. What can be said other than that it is essential keyboard led Progressive Rock! Side 2 though is the bone of contention for many! On first hearing I was also a little dissapointed, but theres gold in them hills if you listen! Ok Jeremy Bender is there obligatory jokey song, a minor piece, but fun nevertheless. Bitches Crystal is a rocker, with great performances throughout. The Only Way/Infinite Space I really love. It starts with Church organ accompanied by Lakes Church Choir voice and finishes in a piano/bass/drums played theme which is reiterated and explored.Brilliant! A Time and a Place follows, which is another good band piece with a howling Moog ending That reminds of Tarkus itself. Ok the last track Are you Ready Eddy? aint so hot, but Its not rubbish either as its nice to hear ELP loosen up a bit.
