Still surprisingly engaging
on 21 December 2011
Actually one thing leaps out from this recording... that phat Moog sound of Emerson's, more than his organ playing (which had already been done to death in his work with the Nice).
This is a surprisingly disciplined album, one of a string of commercial successes that led ELP to fatally believe in their own god-like geniuses. This came before the over-indulgence and still smacks of a group trying to justify its supergroup label. Trying and, i'd say, pretty much succeeding. I remember buying it cheap when it first came out and despite myself liking it . Still do.
