3 stars This is the first album performed with an orchestra and composed/arranged by Emerson and the orchestral Director together.well the output sometimes is uneven and a bit tiring, cause of the complex job in the arrangements, with a few forced passages and a certain unbalance as well, which characterize almost the whole opera!! Instead I think of a few compositions by Renaissance only (above all "Scheherazade" from Rimsky/Korsakov), plus "Pictures at an exhibition", the excellent transposition from Mussorgsky by ELP, being perhaps the unique contaminated works of progressive rock, in which the fusion was perfectly obtained. After hearing such great compositions, I should like to give the present work a "2 stars" score, but probably the right evaluation is "2 stars and an half".obviously your opinion could be affected by your music background, so make your own choice!!
