5 stars A masterpiece from the first to the last note, recorded in two weeks (1 per side), the time you need today for adjusting the drum set, by three grandmasters of prog. Many agree to the ultimate rating of the title track, as many dislike the B-side. For me it's a perfect counterpart to the serious construct of 'Tarkus', with a lighter, sometimes humorous touch. Emerson, Lake & Palmer plays Honky Tonk, simple songs, fifties Rock'n' Roll. So what? They always did. And they are doing great! I find all songs masterly played, authentic and well composed. In fact, the combination makes 'Tarkus ' such a great album, and ELP such a great band!
