Emerson, Lake and Palmer - TrilogyEmerson, Lake and Palmer certainly had no shortage of talent, making every album a magnificent technical feat. Their compositional skill effectively was the epitome of progressive rock, with a pure blending of classical and rock music into each of their songs. The incredible keyboardist Keith Emerson ranks as a top player with band mates Greg Lake adding excellent bass and vocals plus Carl Palmer considered as one of the world’s best drummers. Those talents melded together nicely on their third studio album “Trilogy,” which further builds on top of their first two recordings. Although this doesn’t contain their most well-known song, “Lucky Man,” it is till the album that had the highest sales, and stands out as more consistent, making it a perfect first choice, or the only one to add into your Desert Island Collection.

Note: Trilogy was also released as a 5.1 surround sound edition and reviewed here.
