5 stars Its Really hard to begin with this kind of album, ELP is one of my favourite bands, and this album, is, for me, one of the best of the band history.

Well, Im going to review it song by song, lets begin:

Jerusalem (9/10) : A beautiful, delicate and energetical song, I really love it, its not long as ELP has acostumed us, but is really interesting, and nice to listen to.

Toccata (9,5/10): What can I say about this song, a complete masterpiece adapted by the genious of Keith Emerson, who is for me, the lead compositor of the band.

Still you turn me on (10/10): A beautiful ballad made by Greg Lake, very sentimental, emotive, it reaches your heart in a matter of seconds.

Benny The Bouncer (7,5/10): This is a weird song, but just for the fact that is hard to make it "fit" in the album, besides this, its also a very energetyc song, and maybe a little crazy.

Karn Evil (3 impressions) (10/10): The MASTERPIECE of the album, and very probable one of the most importants "epics" of the band history (with Tarkus of course). I think that words are not enough to describe it, sit yourself confortable, and enjoy this 29 minutes of magnificent music.

As a conclusion I must say that this album is a Masterpiece from the band, and of course, one of the most important albums of all Symphonic prog history.

Nash | 5/5 |
