3 stars Delusion, this was my first feeling after listening (twice) this record ELP is the music I was surrounded since I was 14th. After years I still have all their LPs and bought the first 4 + Works I CDs. Still... they turn me on :) Every one of those is something special. BSS definetly the best ever. The record is literally filled by Lake's ballads (Affairs of the Hearts outstanding tall) but let's see 'em:

Black Moon: it's funny, i could have easily mistaken this one as a Toto song. It's pretty but not that kind of song I wait to replay Paper Blood: here I got the clear impression something was wrong with my expectations Affairs of the Hearts: this one I loved really, their sound seems so "american" Romeo and Juliet: pretty Farewell to Arms: after the Pirates-like intro I painfully thought: oh my another ballad Changing states: plenty of nice moments, forgiving the western-movie-like tempo, it still lacks of inspirations. The ending is really sad, and empty Burning Bridges: another unusual piece for ELP hard to listen Close to Home: again some moments but same feeling: a jam crawling in emptiness Better days: not bad, but same story: a baseline waiting for something never happens Footprints in the Snow: not bad

Too bad good days are gone
