4 stars The Nice promised and excited, but never quite reached their goal, but when Emerson joined forces with Greg Lake and Carl Palmer, a true supergroup was born, and the era of prog began. It seems strange that a band owed so much by the genre it helped to create gets so much flak and hostility. It may be true that bombast and extravagance over-guild the lily on many an occasion in the ELP catalogue, but surely it is undeniable that we are dealing here with a trio of outstanding musicians who, for better or worse, are determined to experiment and explore, and who should be applauded for their efforts, especially here at times on this tour-de-force musical extravaganza.
