5.0 out of 5 stars ELp is far and away the best of the non-ELP albums, 1 Jan 2003
By A Customer
This review is from: Emerson, Lake & Powell (Audio CD)
This is the album that settles the question: If Keith Emerson is the key member of Emerson, Lake & Palmer, who is number two? Compare "Emerson, Lake & Powell" where drummer Cozy Powell replaces Carl Palmer with "The Power of Three" where the guitarist/vocalist is Robert Berry instead of Greg Lake and it is no contest. This is the better album (by two stars as I reckon such things), and I say this intending no disparagement to Palmer, but I must admit that Lake's voice is the one I have always wanted to have. "Touch and Go" is the "hit single" from this album, but the three tracks that precede it are pretty good and I love Lake's vocals on "The Miracle." There is also a nice adaptation of "Mars, The Bringer of War" from Gustav Holst's "The Planets" that I once used as the music for the credit sequence of a video production on nuclear war films. Even the most die-hard fans of ELP would have to agree that ELp is just a notch below the "original" group's best work.
