5 stars Sublime! Great progressive rock! This is Emerson, Lake, and Palmer's masterpiece. Some people might be turned off by the vaudvillian number "Benny the Bouncer" but even that dosen't slow this album down. This is a tight, well produced, well played album. Karn Evil 9 is just awesome. It is probably their greatest work. Tocatta is awesome as well. Jerusalem and Still... you turn me on aren't the greatest they have put out but they are still very good songs. I can listen to the album straight through. I find my self air bassing to Karn at every listen. If you only buy 2 Emerson Lake and Palmer albums make it their first one and this one. If you only buy one, make it this one.
