Brain Salad Surgery - Emerson, Lake & Palmer User Reviews

  • Why four stars?

    By whitefrozen
    Why did I rate this album four stars you ask? How could anyone be so daft as to suggest that this album isn't one of Emerson, Lake & Palmer's greatest and most ambitious work? Well, now that you ask it is their greatest and most ambitious work. It is also arguably one of the greatest prog rock albums of all time! However, this remaster is probably one of the worst I've ever heard. I have owned multiple versions of this album from first pressing vinyls to this more recent one and many in between. The sound is just flat to me, something holds it back from what I think is the best it could and should be.

    Incredible album!! This album helped define early progressive rock, and features three of the most talented musicians in rock history. If you haven't listened to it, give it a try!! Sadly only Carl Palmer is still with us. Keith Emerson and Greg Lake both died in 2016. Their music was often "over the top" and isn't always an "easy" listen. It's been described as "high brow", and "pretentious", but I suspect that comes from critics who don't appreciate musicians who take their instruments to the very edge and back. ELP is one of the pillars of progressive rock, and and this is one of their best albums! Give it a listen!
  • Amazing

    By Harmz way
    By far the most commercially successful album by the trio . This albums appeals across many genres. Especially appealing to all is Welcome Back my friends. Give it a listen.
