5 stars Tarkus..what impressive peace of music, and art...

This album is a complete masterpiece, maybe the complete album is not really THE ELP album, but, the first song, the most important, and the one that gives name to it, makes it a complete masterpiece of symphonic prog rock of history.

Twenty minutes that never let you breath for even a second, Emerson is doing the best he knows, he is THE genious; Palmer, that follows him, and makes a rythm hard to believe, powerfull, incredible; and Lake, with a marvellous voice, and in a great lavour with the bass, the electric and acoustic guitar.

This album is an obligation to every symphonic prog fan, and of course, to the ELPs fans, no more words, they can not explain the size of this masterpiece.

5 stars, no doubt about it.

Nash | 5/5 |
