4 stars Amazing first album, guys!

I never knew that 3 people could do so much.

Barbarian: Great start. Greg Lake uses some weird distortion with his bass guitar. Keith Emerson is great here.4/5

Take a Pebble: One of my favorites. Greg Lake's voice really stands out here, although the second part is a little tedious.3.5/5

Knife Edge: Probably the best and most solid song here. It begins in a very bombastic way, then gets quiet with the bass guitar leading the way, along with the vocals. Excellent song.5/5

Three Fates: Pretty good, but too drawn out. It starts out with a massive organ tune. Eventually it turns into a very complex piece.3/5

Tank: Awesome song. It is very rhythmic all the way. In the middle, there is a drum solo that goes on for about 2 minutes. Great song.4.5/5

Lucky Man: Good, a bit overrated. It is a good ballad, though.3.5/5

This is an essential album for prog fans, especially newcomers. I highly recommend it.
