4 stars This is a very interesting Album. It is just a cover of a very famous classical piece of Mussorgsky ... but it is interesting in the fact that it was converted completely into rock with some vocals.

It always gives me a smile to hear the main melody of the work, and hearing 'the gnome' rocked up. The highlights on this album are 'Sage' with its painfully beautiful singing melody and acoustic work, the 'baba yaga' section with good musicianship and hard rock, 'The Gnome' which is the best part of the album with ELP at their very best, and Nutrocker which is a very fun and underrated piece with good melodies and a guy screaming his lungs out during the show.

It is not essential, and I cannot promise you how you will find this. Some may love it, some may hate it. I love it.

My Grade : B-

Zitro | 4/5 |
