No more Csaba Vedres on keyboards by the time of this release, so that takes away a bit of the ELP sound that followed the band with his presence, but it is still there, maybe more from an arrangement and vocal comparison, however, this album has a ton of new influences, as well as musicians.  It's as symphonic as you can imagine without being fullly orchestral. Strings, brass, woodwinds all abound, and are cleverly arranged along with percussions and rock instrumentations, it a two lp set, and really takes the appeal of a movie soundtrack with all the movements.

A very ambitious and involved recording. And one that requires your complete attention, as it is a complete barrage of sound. It's quite a change in direction for the band, but would be an indication of what they would be doing on future albums, integrating more acoustical and natural instruments with the classic vintage progrock ensemble. If you can appreciate orchestral prog that reminds you of watching "LIve and Let Die" you should probably have this collection of songs, great musicians making great music.
