1 stars Really, zero stars. One of the worst albums of all time, by any group. For ELP, worse than "Love Beach." No redeeming value whatsoever. Not even a decent keyboard fill to point to. A twinkie is a four-course meal compared to the musical value of this album. Embarassingly vapid, devoid of content, let alone inspiration. It's as if three zombies put it out. Guess they shot their wad on "Black Moon," which was a nice comeback album. They're totally bankrupt of ideas on this ... well, I won't call it an "effort," because there is a decided lack of it here.

Only the hardest of hard-core ELP fans should buy it, hopefully dirt cheaply, and let it gather dust on the shelf simply to fill the ELP collection.
