5 stars You know when you get the feeling that a band was before their time? Well, by hearing carefully these guys, you get that feeling all over this BRILLANT album. Those guys can SERIOUSLY play. Even if you don't like the keyboard-based type of prog, this record set the bar very high and commands respect from 0:00 'till the end. Jerusalem is somewhat a reprise from an English patriotic song. It's powerful, pompous and could be classified as an anthem. I don't care what poeple are saying, I like Benny the Bouncer. It's funny, and the accent of Lake is very pronounced (sounds like Coronation Street, but meaner). Is there another thing to say about Karn Evil 9? Well, the first 2 and a half minute are crazy. It's like two poeple fighting over a church organ. Buy it and play it LOUD, loud is important sometimes. It is now. THE album you must get from ELP and unfortunately...the only one.
