5 stars This is probably my fav ELP album. The Barbarian is excellent in the keyboards guitar and drums all 3 guys show off in this one and is the only song on this album where all men contribute to it. Take a Pebble is the first Greg Lake ballad on this the album but not the last or best. I like the piano work but i do think it trudges on a bit to long. Knife Edge, my favorite song off this album and the most played ELP song on my iPod i love the drive of it the anger and Lakes vocals and lyrics soar over it just rite to creates a great mood for this song. The Three Fates a very interesting song the first part is Emerson on a church organ and has a very epic feel and makes me fell im in a church hall for this part. the next part is a fantastic piano solo and the final part is my favorite part which shows the chemistry Emerson and Palmer have together on piano and drums. Tank is Carl Palmers drum solo on the album and has backing from Keith's Clavinet for a while and then jumps into this amazing and influential (on my part) drum solo which goes for about 3 mins and really shows us that Palmer can hold his own in this power trio supergroup ELP was. Lucky Man the final song and ballad from Lake one of my fav songs from ELP and is really impressive and easy to sing along too also has a remember able Moog solo from Emerson. Overall, a fantastic album that paved the road for Tarkus, Trilogy and Brain Salad Surgery.
