Fantastic album from Keith Emerson and very fine vocals from Mr Bonilla quite in the tune of Greg Lake! very good!

Last year Jordan Rudess have issued an album "way back home" with a very interesting cover version of "Tarkus" something that made me think how an album from Emerson Lake and Palmer would be welcomed, since that seems to be very difficult, this Keith Emerson's new album is surely the best we can get now... buy it it's a good album.

This just shows that some things can better with age! The music on this cd has all the creativity of the Keith Emerson of the 70's, yet has been tailored with a classy modern edge of today. Mark Bonilla's vocals and the talents of the band are a great showcase for this master of the keyboards. New energy, new imagination, and the sound that only Keith can produce. Any fan of ELP will be happily surprised. Bravo Mr. Emerson!

I wasn't expecting much from Emerson - let's face it, since the wonderful soundtrack to Inferno, there's not been much to talk about - but this was a real surprise. The opening suite of songs flows together nicely, but never gets over indulgant, and the final tracks are excellent standalones - including a wonderful ballad by Marc Bonilla, who really does deserve his name on the front cover.

The album sounds like the missing ELP album that should have come after Brain Salad Surgery. Emerson parps, toots and grinds along to all the songs, but is capable of calming down when the songs require some gentle piano.

Those yearning for the return of ELP may well find this surpasses what ELP have done 1975, and bodes well for Emerson who seems to have found his niche here. Let's hope this band continues and isn't broken up by more damp squib ELP reunions.

Welcome Back Keith, to the show that never ends.
Not since "Brain Salad Surgery" or perhaps "Works Volume 1" with E.L.P has the master created a truly Prog. Album. With Marc Bonilla, Gregg Bissonette and Bob Birch, Keith Emerson is doing what he does best. Progressive Rock. I recived my copy yesterday and havn't had it off the player. Like "B.S.S" it grows on you each time you play it. This is the album of the year.

This is something unexpected - a new Keith Emerson outing that any fan will surely consider an instant classic. It is progressive rock writ large and we all know that has it's enemies, but for the faithful this has to be an event.

The main piece is an interpretation of a ghost story in 15 segments, incorporating a wide variety of keyboard and guitar effects. This is quite inspiring and some of its elements would work very well as stand-alone songs.

Marc Bonilla (vocals, guitars) is new to me, but a real find. There are some very haunting guitar moments here and an accomplished vocal style, which compliments Emerson's work wonderfully.

There are four stand-alone pieces which are varied, all exciting in their own ways, adding up to a well-rounded album which has been growing on me since I first bought it late last year.

I am writing this to replace my previous review which was ecstatic but probably not very helpful. Suffice to say the ecstacy has not yet abated.

More! More!

While I first encountered Emerson during his glory days with The Nice, the ride since has been a little bumpy and being a contrary old what-not, I refuse to be a slavish fan of any musician. Initially, I was not at all sure what to make of this knife-wielding maniac and his apparently gleeful attacks on defenseless Hammond organs. Particularly as on this first introduction, I had been trying to persuade my poor mum that not all popular music was a horrible row when up pops the lad from Worthing, filling the TV screen with the evidence of a sustained assault not only on a screeming organ but also upon the music of Grieg and Bernstein.
However, once I had got over the shock, I was persuaded to give the Nice a chance to redeem themselves, ignore Emerson's knife-throwing act and actually listen to the music. (I don't think mum, who had briefly studied piano at the Royal Academy in her youth, ever fully recovered!) By and by, The Nice gave way to ELP and for a while Emerson seemed to go from strength to strength. He had set the bar very high early on, so perhaps it was not so surprising that this would be a hard act to sustain. For me, he ran out of steam and began to resemble the caricature his many critics had drawn of him and only occasionally showed his true talent. Fast forward to the "Noughties" and enter American guitarist Mark Bonilla, of whom I know absolutely nothing, but who also seems to have had very definite ideas of where Emo's talents lie and was determined to bring them to the fore, once more. I had seen evidence of their collaboration on a Moogfest DVD and was thus encouraged to explore the album under review. A highly unorthodox, dark and moody intro gives way to some more obvious Emerson trade-marks and then definite signs of a re-energised talent start to emerge.

This is not a review just a list of the tracks that appear on the CD.
Amazon do not seem to have listed them on the listing for the actual CD and DVD set.
(The MP3 download of course will list them)

This may be useful if you want to cut and paste when and if you transfer you CD to your hard drive, Brennan or whatever.
