Boy I loved ELP when I was 16. Now I'm a ripe 18, their pretentiousness has become rather painfully obvious. That said, when they're good they're freakin' great - and they were fairly often. But they seemed intent on sabotaging their records with at least one unnecessary track of instrumental noodling which stops any of them being truly great. The least offensive in that regard is probably Tarkus. That said, all first four albums are definitely worth listening, but don't stray too far from the skip button - you may need it. P.S. RIP Emerson and Lake, talented buggers to say the least.

Cheesy and very pompous, but in a very good way. A very proggy way. They are great, no has great has some of their peers, but great anyway.

ELP is a band that become famous for being one of the first prominent "supergroup" which also blends their Prog Music with Classical music. But they also become infamous for being called as one of the cause of Prog's decline in trend with their lesser albums such the live album "Welcome Back My Friends.." and especially Love Beach.
Anyway, Brain Salad Surgery -along with the gargantuan Karn Evil 9- is a nice effort on the lavish style of Prog music. :D

WHY couldn't they come up with a better name? Whenever I hear that title, i think of lawyers of something. Great band though.

Personally, I don't see the problem with ELP. Sure, they're a LITTLE cheesy, but nothing compared to today's power metal bands. Tarkus was an amazing epic.

It's considered sort of poor form to enjoy Emerson, Lake and Palmer without the slightest bit of irony in this day and age. Many of the complaints that get lobbed at them are utterly valid-that they are pompous, overblown and dated-there are a few gems hidden within their discography. One of the most frustrating bands in progressive rock.
