Fans of ELP and Keith Emerson are in for a treat on this one! High energy prog rock from the master of keyboards.
There is a vibrancy in the music that was sorely missing in ELP's almost ignored "At High Voltage 2010" release.
Marc Bonilla's vocals and guitar playing are very complimentary to Mr. Emerson's playing. Travis Davis on bass and Tony Pia on drums give the music a level of excitement that I haven't heard in decades from ELP.

I'm sorry for the comparisons to ELP. I have loved ELP's music since the 70's and I am so glad that they got together for the High Voltage Festival and hope that they record new music together again. Even if Carl Palmer isn't interested in continuing on because he has found prog-rock bliss in Asia (come on, Carl, really?), I hope that Emerson and Lake can continue with the synergistic seed that was planted 40 years ago.

But I also hope that the Keith Emerson Band with Marc Bonilla records more music and continues to tour well into the future.

While one may say that Mr. Emerson's technical playing ability may have declined a bit over the past 20 years,
he is still a master composer and arranger and, with the help of his friends in the band, deliver a breath-taking performance reminiscent of ELP shows up until the Emerson, Lake, and Powell tour of 1986.

Fantastic double CD that clocks in at about and hour and 50 minutes.

Being a long time ELP fan of several decades, I didn't know what to expect with this lineup. Yet Marc Bonilla is as good or better as a vocalist and guitarist than Greg Lake, while he's an accomplished songwriter as well.

The one issue which has plagued me hearing two copies of the CD is that someone inserted several second breaks between performances as track markers, even when two songs should directly segue into one another. It makes it sound like someone compiled the music from a series of MP3 downloads rather than produced a live CD, or that it's like the old time promotional live LPs, where breaks were inserted for radio cueing.

If anyone else has this issue, or it doesn't occur of their version of the CD, please post a comment. I have written the label about it and they told me they are aware of it and will replace the faulty disc when a new pressing is made.

If not for this production error, I would rate this release 5 stars.

Let's make clear right away that this rating is for the product, not the performance. This set is fantastic, both the new material and the classic ELP stuff. Marc Bonilla's a fine baritone singer in the John Wetton/Greg Lake mold, and he's no slouch as a guitarist either - he and Emerson play off each other remarkably well. For proof, check out the live Tarkus, which is evidently how Emerson first imagined ELP as sounding (the fabled project with Hendrix). The two studio bonus tracks (not on the DVD) are fine as well: Moscow Fantasia, a brief piano number that's a blues variation on Pictures at an Exhibition; and an orchestrated Malambo that can't help but recall ELP circa Works.

The problem is the idiot who actually assembled the Varese Sarabande CD, probably using some off-the-shelf program. Each track is separated by 2 seconds of silence, which is annoying enough on the second disc where all the tracks are at least individual songs. But on the first disc, the new suite (a condensed House of Ocean Born Mary) is ruined, as it has six linked movements, now all infuriatingly separated by that 2-second break. I can't say if the import has the same problem, and one can reassemble the album with a wave editing program - but you shouldn't have to fix an error that Keith paid for himself.

To be fair, when I contacted the record label, I was told that a corrected master is in the works and will be used for the next pressing, whenever that comes to market. In the meantime, they were gracious enough to give a me a copy of the DVD release instead, which is excellent customer service. So don't buy the CD until it's reissued, and if you did, talk to them for, I'd surmise, similar fair treatment.

What a blast - I can't agree that Keith's playing has lost a step - here, anyway, his left hand technique is like the hammer of Thor on pieces like Bitches Crystal and the Piano Concerto, which sounds SO much better arranged for rock band. I think his fellow band mates must be pushing him back to the power and accuracy of his best days - I truly think this is his best recorded outing since Welcome back... The complete Tarkus would be worth the price itself, but the recording is also first-rate (other than the mastering screwup) and the piano samples have never sounded better. And I flat-out worship his old Moog Modular; nothing sounds like one in full cry - I always think of scene in the Fellowship of the Ring where the Balrog is bellowing fire from its mouth. There is plenty of inventive, idiosyncratic Moog noodling, though, sadly, nothing as flat-out Wagnerian and titanic as Aquatarkus from Welcome Back...
I have not enjoyed ELP so much since the Live in Poland album. Don't miss this, even with the slice n' dice tracking!
