GM-1 Media Condition: I believe this live performance is precursory of their legendary live sets. However, this is a very important historical document that represents the birth of a great historical group. Prog is my Ferrari.
This album comes across to me as nothing but self indulgent noodling. I play an album like Close to the Edge and it sounds as fresh and interesting as it did thirty years ago, but Tarkus sounds tired and old fashioned by comparison. It leaves me cold. You know when an album is considered to be "THE ONE"- it invariably gets the deluxe treatment every time it is re-released.
I am one of those fans who see this album as their definitive statement even though I find the relentless bombast a bit too much at times and I definitely would not recommend introducing a potential fan to ELP by way of this album. Maybe the more subdued "Trilogy" album might do the trick.
I made the mistake of thinking I could win over a friend by playing "Karn Evil 9 1st Impression" as loud as possible and he ran from the room in horror. So yes- it is incredibly brutal and intense and is imbued with an almost macabre ambiance -including the token light hearted song, "Benny the Bouncer" check the lyrics and yet there is something darkly beautiful about the album as well.
The thundering Toccata is positively dripping with atmosphere and reminds me of being flying through a very dark and damp cave. The futuristic "Karn Evil 9 3rd Impression" is pure fantasy Prog at its best. I just love the way that track begins with the keyboard fanfare blasting over the top of an incredibly deep fuzzed base line which seems to growl out of the speakers. The production on this album is truly extraordinary- slick, loud and powerful. Surprisingly,despite the massive sound, the album was in some ways stripped back as far as overdubs go so the trio could re-produce the tracks live.
I do have have some reservations about this album. In other words there is a fair bit of excess- the sort of thing non Prog fans and Critics complain about when dismissing Prog Rock generally. But I still love this album and have no hesitation giving it two thumbs up. I have my definite favorites here, including "Bullfrog" which is a crazy, sometimes chaotic, jazz fusion instrumental from Palmer.
Great percussion and excellent keyboard sound effects abound here. There are three mostly piano instrumentals here by Emerson which are mostly retro jazz styles that are a lot of fun to listen to.
Everything else here is interesting, but not spectacular. This is still far better than the schlock that would become "Love Beach" which was their next album. This was the last great album by ELP, and they might have a good song here and there after this, but nothing matching their previous material after this album.
I put Vol 1 and 2 together and end up with a collection full of variety and fun. Copyright Prog Archives, All rights reserved.

All of the musicians came from established bands before joining forces together: On "Tarkus" the title suite was an inventive and edgy suite revolving around jazzy textures.
Their most popular album "Brain Salad Surgery", was their most grandiose and refined. Other good ELP albums include "Pictures at an Exhibition", their provocative, fiery and intense take on a classical work.
The band have always insisted that it was a coincidence that his surname also happened to start with a P, thus allowing the band to keep its original initials. Most ordered copies of this were never delivered though, due to the bankruptcy of the fulfillment house used by ELP.
