2 stars Memorable only for its gimmicky format and mediocre songs, "Works" is everything that is bad about ELP, and has few if any redeeming qualities. First of all, it demonstrates none of the band's songwriting talents, since many of the songs are simply (bad) arrangements of classical works redone as if anyone wanted to listen to them. Their 3 separate sections on the album was a bad idea... period, and the 2 songs which actually feature the whole band are a mediocre shadow of previous album's excellence. I like seeing band's try new things, but not as individuals... that's what solo albums are for. Make "Works" the last of your ELP purchases!

Songwriting: 2 Instrumental Performances: 2 Lyrics/Vocals: 2 Style/Emotion/Replay: 1
