5 stars This is the beginning. From The Nice, King Crimson and Atomic Rooster, it rises. And it was beautiful. It's the progressive roots. The classical structure, the variations and everything else. Since this, These guys were famous by the madness at stage, hardcore improvisations, stabbing keyboards and more. Here you'll find the first technical rock references. Yeah, from the bands they have came, it could not went wrong at all. But they did rock, and very well. I haven't heard anything so schizophrenic and dissonant at times before. Everyone in this world should try their debut.

The Barbarian and The Three Fates are classical music, with a dark atmosphere, and the first total fusion of rock and symphonic songwriting. Take A Pebble is a symphonic classical rock track that includes an acoustic eastern passage. Knife-Edge still has the psychedelic vibe from The Nice debut, another awesome track. Tank is very technical, and a preview of ELP's next works. Lucky Man was a pop hard rock, but I like that. The first masterpiece of a series.

VOTOMS | 5/5 |
