Emerson, Lake and Palmer helped to usher the classical style of progressive rock. When they respectively left The Nice, King Crimson and Atomic Rooster and came together as a trio, finding that their playing styles were complimentary, they created the first progressive rock supergroup. Dominated by Emerson’s neo-classical abilities, The Nice was the first symphonic rock band to adeptly fuse true classical motifs and passages with psychedelic rock and jazz.

One of ELP's most consistently rewarding efforts. It's hard today to put these guys into context of the early 70's if you weren't there. For those who don't get it, I can't help you with that. What I can say, is for 3 guys, they simply blew the doors off of what was expected from a rock band, much less progressive rock for the period. We ALL KNEW you had to have a guitar. No questions. Keith made it obvious that a guitar was not necessary. What makes this album unique in the ELP canon is that this is the one album where they were all on the same page, all writing and working within a framework. Rather than going for the jugular nonstop (Tarkus, BSS), there are actual transients. Light, dark, piano, acoustic, soft, loud. The music comes first, and as musicians they are committed to that. The technical pyrotechnics are used sparingly.It's a simply lovely album. You really can't use that adjective on their other efforts. The range of emotions and moods here is incredible, and their playing is in absolute top form. Keith Emerson and Carl Palmer were so of a mind for such a sadly brief period of time, but created a cascade of sound that inspires musicians to this day. Greg Lake, well he could play tight with the band - but that voice. That voice.This is also likely their most accessible album, with Hoedown having been the #1 song played at ball games when I was in High School, or the sublime From The Beginning saturating the FM airwaves. However, the true standouts are the incredible Endless Enigma (Pt 1 & 2) and the title track Trilogy, easily my favorite ELP song. Keith shows off his prowess without bashing you over the head, and you almost don't notice the amazing stylings of Carl driving the wall of sound that suddenly appears and vanishes just as quickly. Even the "throw aways" like The Sheriff or Living Sin are wonderful additions with tongue-in cheek lyrics.I simply love the studio banter at the beginning of The Sheriff, where Carl blows it and says (expletive) before starting where he stopped. How can they say this is sterile stuff? These guys are playing their hearts out. FOR YOU. And, they're having fun at the same time.Seriously, this is a breathtaking, amazing, mind-bending and almost psychedelic effort from 3 of the greatest players ever to grace the stage. I love hearing musicians play music that is for them and us. This is what we get here. They were technically more amazing in past and future albums, but this is the one that I believe is the most heartfelt and sincere from this most talented of progressive bands.Five Stars, easy. This is a groundbreaking classic. They never bettered it in my opinion, but came awfully close one more time. If you're interested in Prog, and haven't dipped your toe in the ELP canon, I could easily recommend this as a starting point. Turn off the lights. Light a fire. Put the headphones on. Fall in love all over again.RIP Keith and Greg, you are missed.
Although this album is not as ground breaking as the first or as raw as Tarkus, or even as aggressive as Brain Salad, it is, I think, the most polished of the ELP collection. Back in the 70's I spent countless hours on the couch listening to this album with an awesome pair of Sansui speakers, sewing leather patches on my worn out jeans, and now still enjoy it on my on my digital system. I wish I still had those pants. The engineering is unsurpassed in fidelity for the time. Works had some good moments but I wish they stuck more together. Maybe that is what makes this album so special.
Trilogy is the first ELP album that does not have a single weak track, and is one of their strongest efforts. Every song is carefully written, performed, produced, and executed. The album begins with the "Endless Enigma" suite, similar to "Take a Pebble" from their first album, but incorporating the instrumental and writing lessons they have learned in the intervening years. "From the Beginning" is one of the band's catchiest songs and was the band's second hit single. "The Sheriff" and "Hoedown" are well-performed Western style songs. "Hoedown" used to open their concerts for years after this album's release, and band performed "The Sheriff" in tandem with "Jeremy Bender," which opened the second half of Tarkus. Title track Trilogy" is one of the best tracks in ELP's cannon. It is a prog rock masterpiece that incorporates the bands virtuosity, while never losing track of the song's melody.
although not as coherent or powerful as Brain Salad Surgery, this lp instead has a nice variety of tempos. one of the all-time best in classic progressive rock. Also, not to be missed on DVD audio, 5.1 surround sound.
Easily the most accessible album in ELP's discography, Trilogy is also the band's most cohesive, band-oriented effort. The album was written around the idea of having material that was easier to play live, yet there are still a number of overdubs and sound effects throughout. The album's premise does succeed in places. Keith Emerson's signature tune, a cover of Aaron Copeland's "Hoedown", sounds fantastic here and would be a live favorite throughout much of the band's career. Greg Lake has one of his best folk-ballad compositions with "From the Beginning", which would prove to be the group's highest-charting hit. Other than "Hoedown", there are no classical adaptations here, but Emerson's composition skills come forth with "Abaddon's Bolero". He and Lake also collaborate on some pretty good deep cuts, such as the by-the-numbers progressive rock of "The Endless Enigma", the menacing "Living Sin", and the western parody "The Sheriff". Carl Palmer isn't a creative contributor here, but does lay down a solid, unerring backbeat throughout the set.Like their debut, this album doesn't get overly bombastic, but the material isn't quite as immediate or mysterious. Still, it proved to add to ELP's momentum as progressive rock was reaching a creative and popularity peak on both sides of the Atlantic. And it set the table for their next album and subsequent tours which would be major events over the next few years.
So I'm 14, , I am in the dark in my cousins' basement. I hear this music that is completely foreign to my sixties trained ears. You know Beatles, Rascals, Motown... Suddenly I hear this trio; ELP, really? I dug it instantly. Great vocals, great melody; synthesizers??? I knew this was innovative, new jazz? I couldn't quite get it , all I knew was I dug it- the amazing thing is: it never lost it's appeal. It was not a fad or a novelty- it was it's own real great sound. What a tight melodic, brilliant band! Someone tell the Rock and Roll hall of fame this is one of their biggest blunders- ELP belongs among the best ever in music's innovators, get them in man!!!
So they did very well with their first two albums. This wasn't as classical music as the first album but also it didn't have a 20 minute song like Tarkus had.- not very short songs in a row."The Endless Enigma part 1 & 2", "The Sheriff", and "Hoe down" are very good songs - My favorite ones.This is a very artistic album from ELP but it also has lots of prog rock moments.Despite "Living Sin" which has a very good melody but not so good vocals, this album is entertaining people around the world still many decades afterwards.
Fundamentally, I’m writing this from the premise that Emerson, Lake & Palmer [ELP] are a Theatric Rock band and not a Progressive Rock band. I could certainly contend that with the application of rock treatments of classical music that alone should qualify them as a Prog Rock band, but, I disagree. This “Progressive Rock” trio may have composed a few classic Prog Rockish sounding tunes… Think, ‘Lucky Man’ or ‘Still… You Turn Me On’ but there is little else to support the Prog label. Fill a large music venue with adoring teenage fans and watch Emerson spin round and round while they belt out their silly songs… Hardly the stuff of Progressive Rock especially when you consider that at the time, Robert Fripp and his King Crimson were raging quietly just outside of the mainstream. By the way, both songs mentioned are Greg Lake compositions and demonstrate the influence Fripp & Sinfield had over his song writing via his brief stint as a member of King Crimson. [Draws a deep breath]… With all that being shared, the remastering of ‘Trilogy’ is welcomed by the diehard fans. For me, honest friends, isn’t it obvious by now how I’m not one of those guys? Here’s my suggestion: If you can tolerate goofy music such as the ‘Hoedown’ track and have a liking for theatrical rock music, then buy the 2016 Jakko Jakszyk remastered edition. Otherwise, go down to the local library and find out if the Prog Rock influenced librarian bought it in order to relive their fading memory of Keith Emerson spinning wildly on his [underutilized] synths & keys as if that was the most incredible feat ever attempted by a rock musician! Thank goodness for the public library system near you!!
