1 stars Was this album published on April 1st?

This would explain a lot. OK, contract obligations - but this album is simply too embarrassing. I always have to laugh when I see the cover photo. I would like to know what they had smoked during the sessions and on the day they made this pic..., just to avoid it... What are they laughing about? Probably the customer. At least they're laughing us straight in the face, especially Emerson! Just out of spite I'm listening to this crap while writing this review... No, Greg I don't want you to make love to me - not on Love Beach or anywhere else. And the lyrics of Taste of my Love- lord, this album can be really entertaining if you see it as the joke it is. Greg was responsible for the first five songs, so you get simple pop stuff. The best of these tracks is For You. Canario is an inacceptable version of the piece by classical Joaquin Rodrigo. All hope rests now with the suite "...Officer and a Gentlemen". It seems to be the only serious effort on this album, but it's all second rate.

What to make of this mess? Since you really can't speak of prog here, it will be one star. Although the unvoluntary humour displayed on this album and one or two not too shabby moments... no, there is no chance of saving this wonderful output to mankind...
