Best Emerson, Lake & Palmer Songspaalkaaran
The Top Ten
The ultimate prog rock composition. Has it all: Emerson's trademark hammond and synthesizers, complex rhythms and fantastic percussions, wonderfully played bass patterns, Greg Lake's poetic voice, mysterious lyrics, silly mythological storyline and an overall futuristic feel. Why I'm giving this one the edge over Karn Evil 9 1st is the brilliant composition and execution of the keyboard parts and the overall more "compact" nature of Tarkus.
Great epic! I especially love the way the music modulates during the second part, "Stones of Ages" and, of course, Emerson's incredible playing- that Hammond going for 20 minutes is orgasmic to my ears! - Led_Rush_Floyd
Tarkus is basically the ultimate prog rock epic. Contains all that an incredible song should have. Especially part IV: Mass. Tarkus is up there with Echoes, Octavarium, Close To The Edge, 2112, and Suppers Ready. - Beatlesboy9
Why tf isn't this progrock essential in the top 10? It should in fact be number 1! Its ELP at their absolute best.
All the parts of it are masterful. And especially Aquatarkus, Stones of years and Battlefield.
Welcome back my friends to the show that never ends
I'll Be There!
I don't get why part two is rated above part 1. Part one has part 2 and even more.
However, Karn Evil 9 is my favorite song altogether.
This is truly epic and my personally favourite - FredTheGooner
Got to be somewhere!
Toccata. The truly innovative and versatile being the most underrated song ever. I can never get tired of hearing this. - Beatlesboy9
The song of my life...
One of the best examples of the talent of these incredible musicians. Music at it’s best by those who knew how to play it.
This song is amazing. - SammySpore
Great work, Mr Emerson R.I.P
