    9: Superb. Side one I would rate a 10. "Jeremy Bender" on side two is the only flaw IMO.

    Excellent or 8 on Joe's rating scale, not my personal favorite ELP record but it is a Belter for sure.

    It's second only to Brain Salad Surgery in ELP's discography, IMO.

    Yeah the first one is just special, it has sentimental value and one of the most important albums I heard when I was discovering all these fabulous English prog bands. I know most people have Brain...or Tarkus rated higher but I still play the debut the most.

    I agree that it's excellent. "Take a Pebble" and "Lucky Man" are beautiful.

    Knife's Edge and Barbarian also show their heavier side, an excellent debut.

    I think I will play Tarkus tonight myself, Joe's poll has me in the mood for some ELP and a cold beer.:hab:
