1 stars I would be loathe to give any album 0 star although this comes as close as any.Truly depressing FM radio chasing record from this once great band.To be fair there were circumstances why this turned out so bad.One major reason was that the record company Victory Music were close to bankruptcy and desperately needed a hit album.They drafted in noted 'radio friendly' producer Keith Olsen and the result was almost just too easy to predict.It didn't help either that Emerson could barely play a keyboard having just recovered from an operation on his hand.Still it does have the one interesting legacy and that is -which ELP track only includes one member playing on it? Answer - 'Gone Too Soon' which only has Greg Lake on it ,the drums and keyboards being done by session players! Nuff said really.
