3 stars With the third album from 1975 named Spartacus, Triumvirat as on previous album did a concept album about of course Spartacus, legendary ancient gladiator. Same attitude as on previous release, that's mean symphonic prog constructed on keyboards wizardy, over all not bad, but is to damn predictable in arrangements, the ELP and The Nice influences are all over. Maybe in places more concise passages and more elaborated tricks offered by the head of the band Jurgen Fritz as on Illusions on a Double Dimple, but to my ears the sound is date it. Two pieces stands as great The school of instant pain, with almost one on one ELP arrangements, even the voice is like taken from Tarkus and the instrumental The hazy shades of dawn, the rest even are not bad at all are totaly unspactacular or intresting. Another worthy album from their catalogue but to much time they worship ELP almost 100%. 3 stars is best I can give.
