Musically, this is such a piece of it's time that you have to put it into context with albums like "Court of the crimson king", "Atom heart mother" or "The Yes album".
It stands up pretty well and is far less self indulgent than much of their later output.
Probably for most people "Lucky Man" is the best known track and it does have a certain magic but my favourites are the tracks where the band "borrowed" themes from classical composers. The light use of the Moog is a welcome textural addition to the musical palette and I still like the drum phasing at the end of the drum solo (yep, there is a drum solo!) basically because there is still a part of me that is an old hippy!
I's say that the "Three Fates" suite is the weakest part but overall "ELP" is worth buying and playing, if only to see where "prog" was before it became totally grandiose and bloated.
