4 stars Four Solid packed CD's featuring the greatest moments from EMERSON LAKE & PALMER. This 4 CD set explores in depth "Brain Salad Surgery", "Trilogy", "Works Live" (Vol 1 & 2), "Tarkus", ELP, "Love Beach" & even "Black Moon". Along the way we are also treated to some great new recordings by ELP such as the new version of "Pictures At An Exhibition" and "21st Century Schizoid Man". This 4 CD set does a great job in covering the best years of ELP and is a great retro-spective on their musical contributions. I am not really a big fan of the box sets to be honest and generally prefer the individual albums, but "Return Of The Manticore" does such a great job that it works very well for me. A great collection and coverage.
