2 stars By the time I had finished listening to this album for the first time I knew the music world was in trouble. What were the band thinking. I know if their defence the record company was demanding an album from them and they weren't really ready to do this. First of all delete the first five worthless pieces of music. It isn't so much that they are simpler songs or anything like that it is just that they are bad. I like simpler stuff sometimes but these are terrible! Canario ends the first side and it is a pretty good adaptation and one we come to expect form ELP Good energy and good playing. Unfortunately it does not spill over into the epic on the other side. The whole Officer suite reminds me of a stretched out Take a Pebble(if that is possible) with a story behind it. There are probably 5 minutes of good music here and the March at the end of the suite is just ok. On top of it all is that cover! Yechh!

There is nothing here except Canario worth listening too so I give this two stars.
