5 stars My ALL-TIME Greatest #24

The reunion of these 3 excellent musicians really put the trio thus formed in a league apart.
I dare to say they began, filled in and finally locked up a whole new category of rock music.

Global Appraisal

I admit they also excel in their several other great albums but this one lingers forever in my heart for sentimental reasons, beyond the unquestionable musical quality itself.

As usual in the band's albums of this period, the tone of show-offish grandeur is ever present, even the softer tracks don't fail to exude some of that EL&P intensity that can represent the best (and sadly would also make the worst) of their work.

What a tightrope to come across? And they were so good at it, while they held the balance.


Emerson's personalized keyboard playing, the characteristic dynamics of Palmer drumming, the unmistakable warm vocals of Lake, all put together create a trademark sound never matched, the abundant imitators shamelessly paling by comparison.

Quinino | 5/5 |
