4 stars A great compilation (particularly as an introduction to ELP's music) that covers MOST of the band's best songs.

Only complaints: little of the 'Trilogy' album is represented. Nothing from 'Love Beach' onwards requires inclusion in my opinion. And the track labelled as 'Karn Evil 9: 2nd Impression' is in fact part two of the FIRST impression (no big deal but it confused me when I first bought 'Brain Salad Surgery').

Given that this is the kind of band all prog fans end up falling in love with, it is inevitable that you will end up owning their entire discography. So this is as good a place to start as any.
