5 stars This is one of the most influental and essential prog albums that you will ever run across. Period. Possibly ELP's best work ever, this album encompassed the energy and drive and technicial ability they had in the early years.

The Barbarian - ELP's best hard rock/classical fusion peice. This song has a power and energy that reflected this young trio in their early years. Keiths organ tone is perfect!

Take A Pebble - Beautiful despite its inconsistencys. The acoustic guitar part, although not bad, it seems very out of place but I geuss this is ELP we are talking about. Gregs singing is awesome in this one, not to mention Keiths incredible piano playing. Carl Palmer adds some tasteful percussion.

Knife Edge - A very good prog rock song with a very nicely done (bach?) interlude. Decent soloing, very good singing and such.

Three Fates - Very good showcase of keiths talents

Tank - a little bit of Greg showing who is boss of the skins

Lucky Man - Ok so its not so progressive, but its a classic. I never would have gotten into prog if it werent for this song. Definatly better then most proggers give credit for. I'm still kinda wondering about the solo...I know the story behind it, still, how does it fit the song?
