5 stars The debut from the first rock supergroup is a memorable one. From the opening instrumental The Barbarian to the closing ballad Lucky Man this feels like a complete listen by three guys who were determined to do things their way. Most of the songs are written by the individual members and not as a group except for Barbarian which might be the best song on the album with a memorable bass intro and great keyboards from Emerson. The Three Fates is a mention able song because it goes through so many changes and shows off Emerson and Palmer's ability. Tank, Palmer's drum solo is also fantastic and influential on me. Overall, this is one of the best debuts by any band and is worth a listen. 5 stars. Highlights: The Barbarian, Take a Pebble, Knife Edge, The Three Fates, Tank, and Lucky Man.
