With orchestral swells and symphonic arrangements, Emerson Lake & Palmer put the Prague in 1970s progressive rock. There was something of that dark, European artistry in their compositions that always made their music more grandiose than their stateside counterparts. Brain Salad Surgery was a conductor's wet dream. Works like the "Impression" study in four movements were epic to the nth degree. Influenced by Mussorgsky and Stravinsky, ELP wreaked havoc with the conventions of what rock and classical music could and could not be. In typical fashion, the trio included one highly accessible cut, in this case the haunting "Still... You Turn Me On". The CD also contains the enigmatic favourite, "Karn Evil 9". --Steve Gdula --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I love this album but - risking a backlash that I have tin ears - most of the "alternate" versions and mixes included here sound virtually identical to the originals. Read morePublished 8 months ago by Sleepwalk Blue
