4 stars To begin, this is a "difficult" album from the band, that gives us the posibility of apreciate whats the lavour of each member in the band.

The first part of the disc, and for me, THE BEST, is the PIANO CONCERTO No. 1, what a masterpiece, here we can see Emerson making a fantastic performance, wich is the best of all songs of the disc, the only of Emerson, and, the largest of all (luckily)

Then we have, Greg Lake and Carl Palmer songs, some of them are quite good, but, really nothing that can make you delight.

Fortunately, Emerson job, is not the only masterpiece of the album, the three together made two songs for this album, the first one, "Fanfare for the common man", wich is really very good, and, the excellent, and the second masterpiece of the album, the amazing "PIRATES".

As a conclusion, I strongly recommend this album, its an obligation to a ELP fan, and also for the one who likes the band, and synphonic prog.

Nash | 4/5 |
