I sometimes wonder what sort of connection motivates polls?

Cross-Eyed Mary by a lot. Don't care for Knife-Edge. Strange comparison, but why not.

Well, main riff = Janacek. Lake's melody = Janacek, although obviously not the lyrics. Middle section = Bach.

I suppose Carl Palmer's drumming is original..... Ermm

Knife Edge is one of those ELP songs I don't quiet like so much. Cross Eyed Mary is pretty cool.

Its a very original track but the problem with it for me is how disjointed it is. The middle section is just random. The lyrics are an attempt at doing 'dark' which never quite worked for me (similar to Living Sin). Never been one of my favourite ELP tracks.

Knife Edge because the main theme is borrowed from Leoš Janáček, my famous compatriot.
A Elbereth Gilthoniel
silivren penna míriel
o menel aglar elenath!
Na-chaered palan-díriel
o galadhremmin ennorath,
Fanuilos, le linnathon
nef aear, sí nef aearon!
