5.0 out of 5 stars a 5, for 90% - spectacular performance ..., April 24, 2007
This review is from: To The Power Of Three (Audio CD)
Some folks I think didn't 'get' this CD, because they didn't get that it was never meant as a successor to any ELP records ... and I think that that got it an unfair rating from folks around the web ... Kinda like how Last Action Hero was a decent movie, but because some went to it with the impression it was another flat-out Arnold Schwarzenegger action flick they came out of the theater confused and kind of disappointed. This is (and at the time was promoted as) a POP-ROCK record, with moments of progessive ... I like Greg Lake's voice but words can't define how rangey a voice Robert Berry has next to Greg Lake ~ listen to how he goes up 2 higher keys, with ease, on the final refrain of "Talkin' Bout" ... Berry has a serious range, broader than that of other good singers (like Max Bacon, for instance, who he sang with briefly in GTR before joining 3) .. because he has a deceptively low bottom-end to his voice. "Talkin' Bout" is a great tune ... "Chains" is another good one, "You Will Or You Won't" is a kool mellow song, with unique keyboard patches from master Keith Emerson ..... "Des De La Vida" is the prog epic on the CD, "On My Way Home" is a real nice piano/keyboard song. I just think this CD, in it's later life (on the web) hasn't gotten a fair shake because for the last 12+ years it's mainly hardcore progressive rock fans reviewing it. Anyway fans of this CD would do well to also check out Robert Berry's solo CD, "Pilgrimage To a Point".

I agree with your assessment of this album, but by all that's unholy Last Action Hero was a craptacularly bad movie.
