I have never heard this epic track before, and I am enjoying my first ever listen as I type this.

When was the last time you listened to it?

I think it was about a month ago.  It's easily my most-listened-to ELP track, and one of my favorite prog pieces of all time.

I'm using "The Endless Enigma" (one of my favorite pieces with lyrics) on a project, and of course, I immediately pulled out Tarkus ... haven't heard it in quite sometime, and I'm not sure what it was about anymore! Go figure ... me not knowing that ... the shame!
... none of the hits, none of the time ... you might actually find your own art, or self, and forego lousy heroes or Guru's!

Pretty much this actually.

Oh and for those of you who haven't yet heard this magnificent piece of progressive rock. This is for you:

Haven't listened for a very long time, but you've just reminded me to rush off and do that very thing. Love Emerson and Tarkus, great prog moments.

Couldn't say for certain, but I think I heard it in it's entirety on Sirius XM radio within the last 6 months.  Probably my single favorite ELP piece of them all though.

Probably the first prog track I ever heard. Used to have the cassette and was constantly rewinding the bloody thing every day for about a year so I could play side one over and over again
( the year being 1976) 
Nowadays I can go for 2 or 3 months at a time without playing it.I usually play it when a new remaster is released so my next listen will be in about another monthLOL

About 3 months ago. I wasn't even listening to much ELP around then either, I just hasn't listened to it in a while at that point. Masterpiece! Bowdown

Around about 6th November 1979.

Never could get into ELP. Perhaps it is time for a re-evaluationErmm

It's been about half a decade for me. I was playing an MMO game at the time and someone had the name "Tarkus".  I tried a bunch of time to talk to them but the never did respond. I figured they were a bot and though it fitting given what a tarkus is.

In full, maybe eight years ago.  I once liked ELP very much, and had the album (was never really into Tarkus, though), but I went off ELP quite a few years ago.  I tried listening to the track again via that youtube clip, and I just can't get through it.  It's too much for these ears, and I had to turn it off.

It has been years since I've listened to Tarkus. I really just didn't care for it at all, but I see it mentioned a lot here so I may listen again soon.

I've never listened to it. Since I dont like ELP I'm not in any rush to change that.
Spending more than I should on Prog since 2005
