4 stars Emerson, Lake And Palmer continued with what Mussorgsky began!

Bright organ-sounds, classic-sounding guitar parts and crazy syntheziser-sounds let Mussorgsky's works appear in a completely new, wonderful light. Each member of Emerson, Lake And Palmer gives a great performance. While Keith Emerson is playing incredibly fast as we all know him and experimenting with spacy sounds, Carl Palmer is giving his best on the drums. And Greg Lake is showing that he is not only an awesome bassist, he also shows that he plays the guitar very well. I needn't mention that he is a good vocalist. Medieval sounding chant and spacy sounds, you'll find it all on this great album.

With "Pictures At An Exhibition" Emerson Lake And Palmer convinces and shows, that they are live as good as in the studio. Though there is too little chant in my opinion, this album shouldn't miss in any prog music collection. This album is high quality-music!
