4 stars ELPowell is a progressive album that deserves to be reviewed: Keith Emerson really masters melodic modern & anthemic keyboards here! The style is very symphonic, particularly on the "The Score" and "Mars, Bringer of War" tracks. It really sounds Olympic Games anthem. This record often sounds like Asia, especially the lead vocals, the keyboards and the beat. The difference is that the tracks here are more elaborated, definitely more progressive. Many bits also remind me the Pallas' "The Sentinel" album. Actually, there are no ordinary tracks, and I like the short, refined, catchy & accessible tracks on side 2, which have nothing to do with the short tracks on the "Love beach" album: notice the outstanding lead vocals, like on "Lay down your guns". The album ends with the symphonic epic "Mars, Bringer of War", really sounding like a serious & solemn movie soundtrack.

Rating: 4.5 stars
