Overview

A rather courageous offshoot
eunion effort, considering the period in which it was done. There's more energy and purpose here than there was on any post-Works ELP album, and that makes it worthwhile for interested fans, though it wasn't going to make any new converts, either. One oddity is that Emerson, Lake & Powell cover "Mars, The Bringer of War" from Holst's "The Planets," a piece that King Crimson first introduced as a rock adaptation when Lake was a member on tour back in 1969. [This CD version features two bonus tracks, Goffin & King's "The Loco-Motion" along with "Vacant Possession," the latter track being an outtake from the original recording session.]

For a mid '80s album, this strictly has some straigh-in-your-face rock and roll. Cozy Powell's drumming is raw with an edge, Keith Emerson's solos are creative, and Greg Lake's vocals are powerful.
