3 stars ELP third album Trilogy from 1972. Well i'm not so impressed like many reviewers from here. Quite less enjoyble than the predecesor, wich i find it the best ELP album ever, and one of the best albums from prog music, this one TRilogy sounds very good sometimes and sometimes very boring. The musicianship is like always tight, each one being master at the instrument he plays. Now the music sound very uptempo with great keys interplays, warm vocals, but someting is not the way should be, not so well written like on Tarkus. Like other reviwers observe this album is purely dominated by the master Keith Emerson who thake the lead everytimes possible. Anyway this is my no means a weak album, some pieces are still strong enough to capture the auditorium like:The Endless Enigma (both parts) and the titled track, on both tracks i like the escapades Emerson make on mellotron, the rest are only good. I think with all that this is a 3 star album , i might give it as recomandation, but only if you listen the first two ELP albums before thi sone, and aswell if you like keyboard orientated symphonic prog albums. 3 stars, good but sometimes uninstristing. still the musicians remains on a high level in music with this one.
