My personal favourite album by Emerson, Lake & Palmer as far as it's the trio's the most honest and the least pompous LP. The first album by ELP is also one of the greatest masterpieces of the 1970's Symphonic rock, along with both following ELP's studio albums Trilogy and Brain Salad Surgery; actually, it's one of landmarks of the genre as in most of the songs the trio reproduced that typical suite form of Classical music. Fifty years ago, perhaps the all-time greatest supergroup Emerson, Lake & Palmer were released their debut album that consists of the songs that, although all equally beautiful, are rather varied in style. Indeed, the album is an elegant English candy of musical styles that somehow work together majestically; that is not surprise given the previous experience of the trio members. The talents of Emerson, Lake & Palmer are flowingly combined with their enthusiasm for the new project that was quite unique and original. The difference that Greg Lake and Carl Palmer made to Keith Emerson was spawned the sound that was ahead of anything what The Nice did in previuos years. Finally, although the Moog is not over-used at Emerson, Lake & Palmer the album, it includes the huge hit Lucky Man that features one of the best Moog solos in the history of the genre.
