3 stars There are two views on this album. First one, this is technically a brilliant album. Musicianship of ELP is something what few can beat.

However, it is not easy listenable album. I'm a big fan of ELP but this CD I don't hear very often. It is somehow too far beyond my taste. But I like these songs performed live so songs are not a problem. It is something what isn't easy to describe. Sound? Maybe. The truth is I like thier first three albums more.

It is good album and serious prog lover must have it, but ELP did it better before (Now i know, the energy of this album is not so strong. It sounds very proffesional but cold especially in studio).

Hejkal | 3/5 |
