5 stars Hello, here is just another PA reviewer with two ears, a brain and two hands that can even play some guitar and keyboards.

For me this album from ELP is an exciting, mindblowing and pivotal progrock document that must have stunned the press and fans in 1973 (a very prolific progrock year!). The very good thing from ELP on this album is the balance between bombastic, self-indulgent music ("Toccata" and the titletrack), romantic acoustic driven music ("Still you turn me on") and a funny interlude ("Benny the bouncer"). Thanks to my two ears and brain I have noticed this!
