4 stars A classic. A classical classic.

While imperfect (the sound was not great, and there are a few bits where the band sounds off to me), this is an amazing interpretation of Mussorgsky's fine work. Most of the added sections, with the exception of Blues Variation fit the feel of the piece well. Emerson's keyboard and synth work is fantastic, especially when you consider that this is a live recording.

This is one of those times that a prog rendering of a classical piece caused me to purchase orchestral recordings of the original piece. And this is one of the few times where I find the prog version much more satisfying.

If you're one of the few that hasn't heard this album, you are missing out.
