3 stars I am no ELP fan but this is an interesting debut of a group featuring Keith Emerson and shows his early aspirations at mixing rock with classical influences. This is actually quite a psychedelic record, which is normal being in the year 1967, and it carries influences from Hendrix to Pink Floyd. Nothing special as a whole but shows some good distorted guitar work from Dave O'List. Standing out are the symphonic hit-like title track, a proto-type Hammond/guitar interplay for many later prog sound "Rondo", and a nice psych ballad "The Cry of Eugene". Usually I would give this 2 stars, but since this should be seen in the prog-rock context, for early influences to the genre, there goes 3.
