The Meandering Hexagon

Listener's Log: Tarkus by Emerson, Lake and Palmer

Album: Tarkus
Artist: Emerson, Lake and Palmer
Release Date: 14 June 1971
Date Listened: 15 April 2017
Remarks: Wow. ELP's second is a masterpiece. It surges into material rarely explored in rock n roll (like criticism of God and side long composition) yet it doesn't lose an ounce of power. ELP were, in many ways, the definitive progressive rock band and the more I listen to their catalog, the more I understand why people believe so.
Stand Out Tracks: Tarkus, Jeremy Bender, Bitches Crystal, The Only Way (Hymn), Infinite Space (Conclusion),
