5 stars Well, this is going to be the first review of this album, thing that make me feel quite excited, and at the same time, with lot of responsability about it; thats why Im going to try to make a precise review of it.

To begin, Keith Emerson is mostly known for ELP, and also for The Nice, maybe the first symphonic band in the way I see it.

His Solo career is not known by everyone, he doesnt have lots of albums as Rick Wakeman for example, but, for sure, most of his albums are really spectacular, and this album, "Emerson plays Emerson" is not the exception.

The album is made of a suit of 22 songs, most of them, between the 2 and 3 minutes, but, believe me, this is pure quality against quantity.

We can see emerson more as a compositor than as a interpreter, as we are most acostumed maybe (the best interpreter with the piano and all kind of instruments for me); he delivers us beautiful songs, some of them, as "Creole dance" shows lot of energy, and some, as "Solitodinous" gives us a lot of feelings, and a sensation that reachs directly to our heart.

To conclude, a complete masterpiece from one of the bests musicians of all history, KEITH EMERSON.

Nash | 5/5 |
