    Can't wait to hear it. Your reviews make me hopeful. I have the 2-LP/2-CD on the way from JPC for only $24. I do love Adam & Eve though. The epics are wonderful. I made a cdr editing out...

    To my ears? It's just cold, hollow and unenjoyable. Yes, it sounds like a computer made it, not humans. The opening 10 minutes of the previous 2 ELP albums were so much more engaging and appealing.

    "Benny" is just as bad as "Jerusalem" and "Toccata." Those three tracks suck imo. It's all about KE9.

    What was your impression of "Manifesto of an Alchemist? I love that one, but haven't heard the new FK yet.

    I have no problem waiting. $35 total was a great deal for the set.

    Wow, what a pleasant surprise! Manifesto of an Alchemist is a wonderful album. I think it's better than "Banks of Eden" and "Desolation Rose" both. I've been playing Side 2 of the LP over and...

    Interesting. I would have thought it was "Shadowlands" that gets a remaster. That's the one that sounds bad. Over-compressed.

    Kraan Live 1975 is one of those all-time classic German Krautrock-Fusion Lp's. Awesome stuff.

    But you have to get the original Intercord cd. The EMI remaster is abysmal.

    The double albums "Lifehouse" and "Quadrophenia" certainly appear to be prog rock now, but there was so much prog rock going on at that time, that The Who weren't seen that way.
