5 stars This is not just another live album, this is totally new. Not at all, it was an adaptation from Mussorgsky's Pictures at an Exhibition (you know about it). But Mussorgsky would be proud of this guys. It's full of self-ideas and improvisations, that ELP improvisations! You can feel at the very beginning, The Gnome, these guys are playing with fun, they're music masters and are joking. At The Sage, you will taste the beautiful voice and acoustic song from Greg Lake, and if you like From The Beginning, you will love this song too. It's incredible to see how Keith can (always) improvise and experiment without mistakes, and Carl Palmer's drums easily follow his notes at any speed.

Try the DVD, if you are a prog or a classical musica fan, this is a must-watch. And if you aren't, you will probably be impressed.
