5 stars This is ELPīs best achievement.

Actually, it doesnīt contain the two Elp songs I find totally perfect, and Iīd give 6 stars in 5, which are Take a Pebble and Tarkus. However, itīs their only album where all the songs are outstanding, and you donīt have any need of skiping one or two poor songs, like it happens in amazing works like Tarkus and Pictures at an Exhibition.

The band was at his best, with a total abundance of virtuosity. Emerson was experimenting with his keyboards, and strange time and tempo changes. His technic is unquestionable. The way he accompains Lakeīs voice in the calm part of Trilogy(the song) almost makes me cry. Lake, which WAS possibly the best singer in Progressive, and, why donīt we sa?, in all times, had his voice at the best, and his perfect performance, only, would be able to make songs as The endless enigma and Trilogy outstanding even if the rest of the songs were poor(but, of course, they arenīt). Palmer is perfect too, druming preciselly, altough he doesnīt have as many important moments in the songs as he had in Tarkus. His drumming is Hoedown is one of the best one Iīve listened.

Conclusion: A power trio totally aware of their enormous capacity making their only recording without weak points

Evandro Martini | 5/5 |
