Emerson Lake & Palmer: Trilogy

Album Review

Downplayed by some of the group and often dwarfed by its famous follow-up, the supertrio’s third studio album has been overlooked for far too long.

Before prog stopped being a four-letter word and was rehabilitated into polite society, Emerson Lake & Palmer were more often than not the go-to prog rock pantomime villains of choice. To be fair, many of the band’s actions and pronouncements back in the day provided the naysayers with plenty of low hanging fruit: Emo’s airborne piano; Lake’s costly Persian rug; Palmer’s stage-sagging stainless steel drum kit.
