3 stars What can you say about an ELP album that doesn't even get it's songs straight? The first track on my CD (the one on the Sanctuary label) says Karn Evil 9 2nd Impression. Any ELP fan knows that the piece that begin's "Welcome back my friends..." is Karn Evil 9 1st Impression Part 2 (thanks to PA for getting it right, despite another glaring error on this album's page).

But all in all, this set isn't too bad. Although Lake's voice is fading again, Palmer seems to have finally recovered from his stint in Asia. He now appears to be up to the task of playing prog.

The song selection is okay. How often do you get to hear Bitches Crystal and From The Beginning played live? But poor Tarkus. He's been shrunken down, so much that he's been attached to excepts from Pictures....

Any why no Brubeck credit for the melody used in Rondo. I guess he's been Rondo'ed.

2.5 stars, rounded up.

Evolver | 3/5 |
