UK, 1971, progressive rock / symphonic prog

Emerson, Lake & PalmerTarkus

One of my favorite things to do while listening to EL&P is to go find two diametrically-opposed reviews of them and laugh at how polarizing a band can be to the listening public. This album is like a peasant woman dressed up to go to a fancy ball, and when she gets there, the noble ladies ask her, “Who made this astonishing dress?” She admits she did, and they are incredulous. Back at home later that night, she holds her dress up in the moonlight and admires its craftsmanship. “I don’t see what’s wrong with it,” she muses to herself.
