5 stars Arguably ELP's best. This feels like a complete album that every song fits and feels like it belongs here. They also in a way streamlined their sound into a more accessible progressive sound. I will say that this album was my gateway into prog and is a great place to start IMO. The Endless Enigma Part 1, Fugue and Part 2 work off each other perfectly and serve as a great opening. From the Beginning might be Lake's best ballad ever and is ELP's highest charting single. The Sheriff is a quirky that is still enjoyable for me. Hoedown is a showcase for Emerson's keyboard ability. The title track is a beautiful number that combines Lake's ballad writing with Emerson's keyboard based hard prog. Overall, this is a fantastic album that i recommend to newbie's of prog. 5 stars. Highlights: The Endless Enigma Part 1 & 2, Fugue, From the Beginning ah hell the whole damn album
