1 stars The debut self - titled Emerson, Lake and Palmer had his faults, but it was still an enjoyable piece to listen to. However, it is defective in "Tarkus", his arrogant and horrible follow-up album.

I'm the kind of guy who can see something good in any kind of album you listen, no matter how bad it is. But this here ... is absolutely annoying. Listen to "Tarkus" makes me sure that I am an avowed enemy of the ELP! (yeah, let's not exaggerate, but truth be told - I hate their music!)

Forgive me fans of Keith Emerson, keyboards but it is an abomination to nature. I have never heard so annoying synthesizers and organs so badly - used - only the piano is saved. Greg Lake singing is one of the worst experiences I ever had. Only Carl Parlmer be saved, but the truth is that his style is forgettable (but at least he is not remembered for something bad to his companions).

Now for the songs. Ahhh, the music ... these ominous music of "Tarkus". There is nothing good for me to highlight - except for an interesting guitar solo on the track - title, an amazing and insignificant monster 20 minutes that I do not pass "good energy". The second side is even worse - a tiny portion of songs that I make a point to ignore when you can.

"Are You Ready Eddy?" . No, ELP, I'm not ready for you. Sorry - me, but you are not for me.
