AllMusic/François Couture wrote: “Trilogy, ELP’s fourth album, features the trio settling down in more crowd-pleasing pastures. Actually, the group was gaining in maturity what
they lost in raw energy. Every track on this album has been carefully thought, arranged, and performed to perfection, a process that also included some form of sterilization. Trilogy still belongs to ELP’s classic period and should not be overlooked. For newcomers to prog rock
it can even make a less-menacing point of entry.” Score: 4/5.
