2 stars This is not so much a studio album as a compilation of left over bits and pieces, mostly from the disappointing Works Volume 1 album. As on Works Volume 1, the best parts are the Carl Palmer selections. He at least was still attempting to play progressive rock, while Emerson was playing ragtime and honky tonk, and Lake was just playing dismal ballads.

Besides the Palmer tracks, at least we finally had a recording of Brain Salad Surgery, a re-recording of the hard to find B-side of a single. This recording was not as good as the original, but it sufficed. And So Far To Fall is not a bad song, either.

Evolver | 2/5 |
