5 stars 01. The Endless Enigma (Part One) Never had given me a song so scared about this, his awful beginning gives me chills to this day, I remember like it was today, a friend told me he had this disk, but did not know what was and I said at the time, I brings LP I hear, which took fright at the listening room of the house only with the lamp on! Dark. Those moves such as a heart. At first well short, then a strange melody of keyboards and pianos shocking attacks of the silences between. Emerson knew how to make sound of keys that he carried with you. Enter low mark, while it would mark the Moroccan flute melody, to that between what I would call Sound ELP, keyboards loose while eating Carl and Greg deploy bases perfect. So they enter the voice! My God how anyone can sing as much as the Lake? If you have someone that I wanted that someone would sing it (and then the Ian Anderson of Jethro Tull). Perfect end to a perfect melody. With the sensational low of Lake marking the melodies as the keyboards. Percussion takes care of everything for us to link at the keyboards of Emerson to our minds and hearts ...

02. Fugue Few play piano like Keith Emerson, Leakage in your , He and Greg lake build a perfect partnership. Tons of melodies and counterpoints.

03. The Endless Enigma (Part Two) Concluding what had begun to have part two of the Enigma, beautifully conducted by our three minions of sound.

04. From The Beginning The surprise that I question the Lake of interaction with the guitars, as he can compose songs beautifully so wonderful, I never stop playing the guitar From The Beginning, a melody that is not out of the head. It is so beautiful and melodic. The vocals are so perfect, the low is without a doubt a highlight of the song, along with the keyboards always estupendos Mr. Emerson. And of course do not let talk of soil and full of beautiful melody of the guitar Lke in the middle of the song. Superb!

05. The Sheriff

Sensacional! I always told myself, all of ELP disk must have a ballad of Lake, a leakage of Emerson and of course, a Honky Tonk Western joy for the staff, we have one of the stories of Old West very well conducted by the band. It is fun to hear these songs, as far I know no one else has done something similar. To finish with these crazy land of cowboy. Beautiful!

06. Hoedown (Rodeo) If this is not the trademark of the band I really do not know what is! With a catchy melody and dancing at the same time is able to snatch up the most unwary travelers of the world the wonders of progressive rock. Three masters of the art of music are working, do not dare disturb! Listen and try not to sing along to the melody, I challenge you!

07. Trilogy

Simple beauty is what you say the beginning, sntetizador piano and setting the tone for Lake that can show how your voice is beautiful. The second part of the disc was higher for the songs, starting with this (8'54). So that leaves us dizzy initial melody comes the second part of the song to understand that everything has two sides, after the simple beauty comes in (as well as in-sas heads) the madness. At a time super broken Emerson shows us how valley. And our two heroes show us how important it is to have a solid foundation for a band. As would be the third part of the music is the unification of two things, the beauty and madness, together in one show us that everything you have two sides, but they can mix at any time without that manages any kind of conflict in world. And gives you Emerson and Moogs. And just an unusual view!

08. Living Sin

Living Sin is totally anarchic, a slight feeling of fear when Greg starts to sing with that tone and serious. He seems not singing. The mixture of sounds of keyboards that Keith can with all that paraphernalia that carries with it is simply wonderful. The second part brings a dubious weight for a band of three components and it does not load the guitar (symbol of the weight) with them.

09. Abaddon's Bolero

Abaddon's Bolero to date (for me) is indecipherable. A very low melody takes the speakers and slowly going in and adding new elements involving the music, the sound will increase (in terms that sound), and when it comes to the summit is already done. (Vai understand these guys, laughs).

Certainly I do not need to talk any more. If you were concerned with what I wrote just above there will not ever be interested!
