5 stars In the age that this album first appeared, these performances were stunning technical displays of musical composition. Just deciphering the sounds of the fledgling age of monophonic synthesizers is enough to boggle the mind. Greg Lakes voice is as strong and melodious as the best of lead singers. Palmer plays with matching furiousity (A mixture of anger and curiousity). A true masterpiece. A little levity on the lines of the Beatles "Rocky Racoon" is thrown in 'The Sheriff". A fun piece with great playing all around. Beginning with The Endless Enigma, leading to Trilogy, and concluding with Abaddon's Bolero creates a forty minute masterwork that holds its own in the pantheon of finely crafted progressive music. Emersons' Hammond organ sound, technique and use in composition became the standard by which all keyboard players were measured from then on.
