Encores, Legends & Paradox: A Tribute to ELP [Explicit Lyrics]

( 1 )

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Steve Huey
The progressive metal-oriented Magna Carta label assembled a tribute album dedicated to Emerson, Lake & Palmer, with arrangers Robert Berry and Trent Gardner playing major roles in determining the music's direction. Encores, Legends & Paradox varies wildly because of typical tribute album problems some artists sticking too close to the original versions, others not quite capturing its essential elements. There are some good moments, and some decent ones below those.

    Timeless techno-rock

    This tribute-album is almost as good as it gets. With a staff of musicians from bands like Dream Theater, Asia and Jethro Tull, it´s really hard to beat. The ambitious cover versions here shows, with a few exceptions, great loyalty to the original versions. A standout track, though, is "Knife Edge" with a splendid solo from Marc Bonilla, where he plays Emerson´s keyboard-line on guitar. I guess that Keith, Greg and Carl appreciates this album as much as their fans do.
