UK, 1972, symphonic prog / progressive rock

Emerson, Lake & PalmerPictures at an Exhibition: A lot of music nerds shit on this band because they think ELP is pretentious, just showing off for hours and boring their listeners to tears. But that’s just showing off. That’s not pretension. They’re all about setting a mood; it’s about building a sonic environment in which one can play and explore. The people at the concert seem to dig what ELP is doing.
