4 stars I think that this album is one of the most unappreciated in all prog-rock history.

Unsuccesful solo careers of Keith Emerson and Greg Lake forced them to reunite but last of the former members - Carl Palmer said no. At that time he was drummer in Asia and he decide that his new band (which was still popular then) was more suitable for him. So Keith and Greg had to find a new drummer which is well techniqued and which first letter of the last name was P.

Forunetly Rainbow former drummer Cozy Powell was willing to cooperate.

ELPowell created really good album. It sound more modern then their masterworks from 70's but they kept their best from past decade. Tracks such as The Score and The Miracle are still keeping the same high level of composing and performing as Tarkus or Karn Evil 9. Even when you try the easy listening tracks like Touch and Go or Love Blind you'll realize that they sound better then Lake's poppy song like C'est La Vie. Even Asia soundlike song Lay Down Your Guns is a good one. For me Step Aside is a nice surprise - cute song in Sinatra climate.

I regret that they hanen't cooperate for longer period of time. After they first tour Cozy decide to quit...

Patiquee | 4/5 |
