Band: EMERSON, LAKE & PALMER (London, UK)
Active: 1970–1979, 1991–1998 / 10 studio albums
Album: TARKUS – 2nd album
Released: 14 June 1971 – 50 years ago today
AllMusic/François Couture: “Tarkus makes a very solid album,
especially to the ears of prog rock fans, no Greg Lake acoustic ballads,
no lengthy jazz interludes. More accomplished than the trio’s first LP,
but not quite as polished as Brain Salad Surgery, Tarkus is nevertheless
a must-have.” Full review here. Score: 3.5/5.
Turn Up The Volume: Big compositions, big orchestrations, big egos. One
of – along with Genesis and Yes – the most famous prog rock bands ever.
