4 stars Ah, ELP... One of the first pwer trio in history, the other being Cream. Trilogy is a very good album, not as good as Tarkus but still very good. The album starts with ''Endless Enigma part 1'','' Fugue'' and ''Endless Enigma part 2''. Three song merge together to make a 2 parts suite with a little impromtu in between. I have a couple of friends who think that this suite is one of the greatest achivement of ELP but, I tend to disagree, it's good but there's a lots of other song in the ELP repertoire that I prefer. ''From the Beginning'' is a very strong ballad by Greg Lake, one of is best in fact. ''The Sheriff'' is IMO the weakest song on the album, I prefer ''Jeremy Bender'' from the album Tarkus as this one. ''Howdown'' is a very good take at a classical piece by Arron Coplan, very entertening. Now the song ''Trilogy''... WOW!!!!! With ''Starless'' by King Crimson, this is the song that capture what prog is all about. A very mellow starts that progress into a incredible keyboards solo by Emerson, and Greg Lake... what a voice, IMO the best vocalist of the 70's ,all musical style included, and ''Livin Sin'' is one of the best exemple of is vocal range, a very good rocker is that one, another highlight of the album :) Everything ends in grand style with the semi rock semi classical, ''Abaddon's Bolero''. So a well deserve 4.5 Stars. Try it, you might like it, ''I did'' ;)
